As you will see elsewhere on the web, a common solution is to coax the lens back into its casing (if it's stuck, which mine wasn't with this error) and then hit the lens part of the camera fairly solidly against the heel of your hand a couple of times. Turn it back on and it should be back in action. If not, whack it another few times.

This worked for me with this exact error on the DSC-S600.

the FSM covers that, each error, has its own runs. (cycles)
here are the rules. on topic, clearing them.
  1. push reset on the scan tool,
  2. pull the PCM memory fuse. for 5min.
  3. pull battery neg. lug for ,5min,
  4. drive them off, (per the books rules.
The SM is here, service manual and is only $4 to read it.
and is the official book not clone or store rag, idle promises

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!

Quantaray 18-200 f3.5/6.3 AF VR Autofocus and Stabilizer stopped. If I turn on one or both the camera says ''ERROR - TURN THE CAMERA OFF AND ON'' If I turn off stabilizer and autofocus, I can use the...

it sounds like the problem you're experiencing is related to the stabilizer being able to reset itself. Oftentimes with the stabilizer lens especially if the lens is dropped or impacted the stabilizer will lose one of its control points. When this happens the camera will try to initialize the stabilizer and find it'll come in slightly crooked which will cause the camera to error out. Usually when this happens will have to replace the stabilizer unit for lands like yours which is actually a Sigma lens the cost for the part usually runs around $89. Since the lens works fine in the manual mode and only fails when you turn the stabilizer on I would guess that the stabilizer is your culprit. Replacement of this product will require the lands be completely disassembled and then recalibrating cleanness is put back together. The repair of this type usually runs around $109. You might try contacting the manufacturer directly to see if you are covered under an extended warranty. These lenses often were covered for three years. You should be able to find your local contact number on your lens information sheet. Good luck if we can help contact me directly.

F error code

Check the contacts on the camera and the lense.
This error means there is a communication error with the lense or it thinks that the lense is stopped down. Since its a G lense it cant be stopped down manually its gotta be some sort of communication issue. The electrical contact pins are springy and stick so they don't fully extend sometimes. This will improve with wear as the plastic channel is a bit too small and is holding the pin in the retracted position - repeated use will get the channel to get larger. I fixed mine by working the pins in and out manually until they all reliably sprung into position. Removing the lens a few times and fiddling with the contacts seems to have solved the problem..You can check by moving the lens when it is mounted to see if you can replicate the error.

I had been receiving E62 error in DSC H2 recently purchased. I found that the internal battery which controls the clock had discharged. So i allowed the batteries to remain over 24 hours and it became ok. No more problems. The sony guys shud supply AC adaptor with camera just for avoiding this error. It really bothers u till u read the manual and do some thinking, b cos 62 is related to initialise and initialise is related to clock and numbering of the photos. What i did was also create an extra folder so that the conflict of the Internal 32 MB with External 1 GB got resolved.

Biz Hub c250 gives error code 3452

C3452: Pressure Heater Trouble.
Try to reset it like this:
Shut down from the main power switch (the one behind the front cover).
Keep pressed the Utility/Counter button.
Power on while the button is kept pushed.
Release the 'Utility/Counter' button only when you see the 'Trouble Reset' button on the touch screen.
Touch the 'Trouble Reset' button, a small ok should pop up underneath.
Power off, wait for a few seconds and then power on.

Headlight cover discoloration

I called Volvo North America and after several days of call-backs was told that the 'factory' plastic doesn't stand up to heat and washing. I replaced them both with aftermarket units and the $300 per headlight alone was worth it but after 4 years (I have a 2004 t-6) the aftermarkets are still clear, go figure. Got them from for $200 each (dealer qutoed $525 + labor). BTW they install with only two clips on the top, don't let a dealer charge you more than $50 to replace them.
