Re: it wont close

Okay, the same happened to my camera. The lens stayed open and showed system error on a blue screen when I tried to close it. I checked if this had happened to others and found that it had, and took note of their comments.

I tried first of all pushing the lens back in whilst trying to close the door: seems to work for some but not for me.

I then tried pulling the lens out even further in case it hadn't come out all the way in the first place: didn't work either.

I tried slapping it on the palm of my hand three times quite hard and trying again to close the lens door, then repeating this a few times: seems to work for some, but again not for me.

Finally what did work: I rocked the lens back and forth gently a few times which suddenly brought it back to life - it sprang open a fraction, made the 'taadaa' noise to show it was ready and was delightfully back to normal.

Seems the lens had been stuck somehow and needed a bit of gentle persuasion to return to its normal positon. It may be the combination of all the above that finally did the trick, or just the end one. I will never know. I do know that I love this little gizmo and that it has given me five years of brilliant service. There are cheaper and better spec' camers around now, but I wouldn't trade it for any of them, so its really lovely to have it back up and running.

Hope this works for you and anyone else it may happen to.

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!

Sustem Error S0042

Todd, What you can do is to powerit on and try to pull the lens out manually. Do not use too much strength or rotate. But try it a few times and the lens casing may stop touching the camera body. Once the lens comes out fully then the camera will boot up and work.

Camera lens wont open or close after being dropped. it won't turn on and take pictures

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Dropped fe- 230 camera in sand..spazzing ASAP please

Borrow a friends camera or buy another.
The motorized lens assembly is contaminated, and
your only recourse is to replace the entire assembly.
It has very close tolerances and even replacing it is no guarantee that all the sand particles could be cleaned out of the camera body.
Sorry. No easy fix this time.
Regards Paul

your lens mechanism is stuck up! try pulling the lens with slight force, if you are lucky the culprit that is blocking the mechanism will get loose. If you are not lucky theres no way you can remove or fix the problem than sending it to the authorized service center. =-(

Error code S0042, DIMAGE G600

I had this problem with my 600. I noticed that the end, center, part of the focusing mechanism was slightly out of alignment. (The part that usually sticks out furthest.) Once I straightened that piece, it was able to retract and the camera could be closed. Look at the focusing mechanism from all sides to make sure it is straight. The part was very slightly off, but enough to cause the error. My camera has been working fine since.
