Re: when power button is pushed "zoom error" is displayed...
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

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!
The device requires restoration achieved in two processes
perform a check
1. Power off completely the camera.
2. Remove all power devices or batteries
3. Check the entire device for damages
4. Make observation notes about any malfunct features
5. Replace batteries and removeavble parts properly with caution that every feature is intact.
6.If the device still displays error message consider the second phase explained
a. The device program features are jammed only possible solution is performing a software update or upgrade
1. updates are achieved by contacting the device;s technical support deparment
2. Upgrades can be performed by acquiring an installation kit in which instance requires technical expertise to perform an intergration restoration
1. Apart from the message received does the device malfunction?
2. Your camera would be displaying an image similar as flash screen or screen saver that can be fixed quiet easily
a. use the menu buttons to select the option of settings
b. set the picture to be displayed on the appears screen area once powered on.
c. Possibly alter the entire image displayed as desired by yourself.
4. A screen saver could only be deleted,, hidden, or replaced with a preferable image
5. Possibly, the words ZOOM ERROR could changed to WELCOME TO OLYMPUS STYLUS
Turn off your LCD display screen. I know this is hard—who likes shoving their face against the camera to compose a shot through the little viewfinder? But the LCD screen single-handed-ly drains a lot of power.
Minimize the picture preview to the least amount of time possible—usually one second. This uses less LCD screen time, thus less power.
Dim the brightness on your LCD screen. A dimmer display extends battery life by consuming less power to light the screen. This might make the display harder to see, but usually only in direct sunlight.
Set the power saver to the least amount of time. Power saver lets your digital camera “sleep” when not in use, but doesn’t shut it down entirely. To “wake up” your digital camera, simply click the shutter button.
Use your zoom as little as possible. The motor that moves the lens uses power. This also goes for repeatedly turning your digital camera on and off if it has an extend able lens.
Turn off the continuous focus. Again, constantly using motors and electronics to ready your shot drastically minimizes battery life.
Don’t push the shutter button half-way down until you’re ready to shoot. Pushing the shutter button (constantly resetting and refocusing) will drain battery life.
Use the flash only when necessary. Your digital camera’s “auto flash” option should take care of this, but make sure your flash isn’t going off in broad daylight.
Don’t delete pictures from your digital camera unless necessary. This consumes power. Wait until you download the pictures to your computer before deleting.
This one’s basic, but charge your battery often. Lithium ion batteries, which most digital cameras use, don’t have “battery memory” like older alkaline. In fact, lithium ions work better and last longer if charged completely and regularly.
First of all, the live view mode will work only in creative zones, that is from mode P. P, Tv, Av, M modes. Put the camera into one of these modes and push the Set button that is located behind the camera, amidst the four direction buttons, and you're live! Also note that to autofocus here, you should use the zoom minus button, a button with a star beside it.
Is your memory full? Does the camera attampt to focus when you push the button down 1/2 way? If not the mode dial may be faulty (you are not in picture taking mode) or the shutter button may be faulty (no focus attempt) Try to use the timer button to get the shutter to trip.
