Hello

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.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , 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).

Try gently 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.

Another 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 your hand.

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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

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!

How can i fix the error 16:10 on my digital camera- Sony DSC T-90


Hi. If you mean error 61:10 then that is a Lens error. Specifically relating to
the zoom. If you stilll can zoom in and out fully then just reset the camera.
If not then you will need to replace your lens. They are fairly inexpensive
and easy to install. You can search www.ecrater for replacement part.
If you need help just ask the seller. Good luck

Droped camera zoom wont go back in just says zoom error, zoom is on an angle i can see a tiny ball bearing is it fixable


Officially the answer is "no" as your camera will need a replacement zoom lens assembly and supplying and fitting it costs more than your camera is worth.

But that means you have nothing to lose by trying!

You can try some of the fixes listed in this link and fix #7 is the one which most likely applies in this instance, but if thecamera is still covered by the manufacturer's warrantythe repair will be done by Fuji free of charge as long as there's noevidence that you have been clumsy or have tried repairing it yourself.

I hope that you get your camera working again and that you found my reply to be of use. If so, please rate my answer.

My fugi camerea is saying zoom error..any idea on what this means


This means your zoom mechanism has jammed and will need to be stripped down and reset if it doesn't clear itself. some times it will clear all by it's self but depends on what is causing the problem.
I have just repaired the exact same thing on my S1000fd and it took several hours. The zoom lens had been pushed in and had jammed.
Unless you have knowledge of digital lenses I wouldn't recomend trying to fix this your self as the layout inside this model means you have to stip every thing out to get at it.

Zoom in/out power off message


While zooming in-out camera gives error message means lens mechanism is either defective or lens drive motor is bad. In both cases, lens assembly will be replaced.
Contact nearest camera repair shop for fix.
Thanks.

Zoom Error


Lens unit has to come out to see whether the problem can be sorted out without spares going in. But unfortunately you have to go from the back on this model which means disconnecting and removing all 3 pc boards and the LCD screen and then loosening the lens mounting to slide the lens out from the back. You may have to dismantle the free lens further once it is out to see exactly what the damage is ( if any ).

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.
