Hi\015\012
\015\012
\015\012your getting a lens error basically.\015\012
\015\012
\015\012The lens is unable to extend or retract, this could happen if the camera has been dropped, or there might be sand in the camera or its simply out of alignment with the gears, or a gear might have broken inside so its unable to move the lens. Or it could just become stuck.\015\012
\015\012
\015\012The camera will most likely need to be taken apart and the whole lens might have to be replaced if you've just been on a vacation, you could try using your vacuum cleaner on the lowest setting on top of the lens to **** out any possible dust or sand from the camera while you turn it on and off a few times. \015\012
\015\012
\015\012now you might have to take the camera apart but you may be able to help the lens extend with your fingers, push or pull very gently and try to help it move. \015\012
\015\012
\015\012if that doesn't help, don't force it, it could make this much worse. If you are outside of warranty, and well this probably wouldn't go to warranty in any case. You would have to take the camera apart and inspect the lens possibly disassemble it and put it back together. If that doesn't help or if something is clearly broken off the lens you would have to replace it. \015\012
\015\012
\015\012well you could buy a used same model camera for 29.99 here\015\012http://cgi.ebay.com/KONICA-MINOLTA-DIMAGE-G500-DIGITAL-CAMERA-5MP-WORKS-/320620953978?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item4aa67f817a#ht_2085wt_905\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Now that posting says Its not working on the condition and then below it says its been tested and working. \015\012
\015\012
\015\012here is another one\015\012http://cgi.ebay.com/Konica-Minolta-DiMAGE-G500-5-0-Megapixel-/190471920343?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item2c5902dad7#ht_500wt_1156\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Consider if its worth the repair. a repairer will charge you $140+ for having to take apart the whole camera to get to the lens.

Stuck Lens My 4 year old got a hold of my Konica Minolta Dimage G6000 and now my lens is stuck half way out. It will not move in or out. When it powers on I get "system error S0042." As I do not have a lot of money I am tempted to take it apart and see if I can fix it, but I don't want to make any problem worse. Any suggestions? Thanks, Todd.

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).


Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera
