Dimage Z3 won't focus

When turning the camera off the lense would not retract. I gave it a "gentle' push and now the focus will not work. every picture is blurred. I need to get inside it to see if I can fix it.

    It is fixed now courtesy of a previous solution which simply was a very hard "thump" on the carpet. Thanks guys.

Error code S0042, DIMAGE G600


The S0042 error code relates to a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended)
Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. Let me know if it worked!

Awesome. I was about to go buy a new Dimage z3 because it was zoomed all the way...


Surprisingly enough, most freezing problems (and other problems, too) can be solved by gently hitting your camera. It works! Just remember to be gentle.

Dimage Z3 lens does not retract


Check your batteries. Are they working? Try taking them out and replacing them. If you left the camera on when you put it away and the batteries drained, you won't be able to retract the lense until fresh batteries are inserted and the camera is powered up again.

Focus/zoom issue with Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 digital camera w/ 12x zoom


This is a symptom commonly listed for DiMAGE cameras listed on EBay for 'parts only'. Dropping the camera I had caused the same problem and carefully 'smacking' the camera once again did solve the problem but that may have been dumb luck. Sorry but it is a service task that may cost more than the camera.

Dimage Z3 blurred zoom images


I don't think there's any problem. Simply, a longer zoom means that - without a faster shutter speed - there is an increased probability for camera shake. Additionally, cameras usually struggle with focus in longer zoom. To be sure that there isn't a fault, do this:

1) Place the camera on a tripod or other sturdy surface
2) For additional stability (and to avoid camera shake due to shutter button movement), select the self-timer
3) Focus and take the shot.
If it's still blurry, then yeah, there's a problem

What kind of focus settings does the DiMAGE Z3 have during movie recording?


The following three settings are selectable during the movie recording: Continuous AF: The single-shot AF is operated in advance of recording, and AF is always operated during recording. Single AF: The single-shot AF is operated in advance of recording, and the focus position is fixed during recording.*This mode is useful for shooting a low contrast and hard-to-be-focused subject, such as fireworks. Manual: The focus point is to be set manually in advance of recording, and its position is fixed during recording.*Manual focus is useful when it is difficult to focus automatically.
