Re: 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!

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.
I have already answer to this problem. To try on solve it you need to remove the metal front cover and check if the socket of the large flat coming fron the back of camera is complete inserted on his shell, or if you damage the cable because the camera drop down
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. =-(
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.
remove 6 phillipscews open camera.There is a little drivemotor for the lens,next to it is a shaft activating the limit switch for lens opening and closing.Carefully spray plastic safe electronic cleaner into the opening.Now apply 3 volt to the motor reversing polarity a few times to activate the limits. Now use canned air to blow out any residue of the cleaner.This worked for me,camera working again.
