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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello Gruntny, in order to repair this Camera you will have to replace the OPTICS UNIT (ED13A). Please contact your nearest Sony Service. Best regards, Arpad
