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!
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.
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.
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
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.
