I have a konica digital revio kd-400z, its about 2 1/2 years old and has been great till now........... I went to use it the other day and an error msg came on the screen s0042 and the lens didn't move. I had a look around on the net and found that this code means a lens mechanism fault. Luckily my hubby is an electrical engineer, so he took it to pieces and the cogs whichmove the lens back and fourthhad come out, he put them back in and it now works BUT the cogs are not aligned properly and it makes a clicking noise when the lens moves back and forth! If anyone has any info or pics of how they are aligned it would be much appreciated.

thanks dede

Dede,

I'm experiencing same problem. Sad thing for me is my husband is not an electrical engineer and I have to send it in for repairs for at least 150.00. Ugh. I hope you get your "cogs" aligned. - not sure what that is and am afraid to ask, but good luck I'm seriously considering chucking this one and just purchasing new one.

You are the first person that I've seen report being able to get a camera to work again with this error. Normally, a trip back to Konica-Minolta for service is required.

I sent mine back. (Konica-Minolta) Fortunately it was in warranty. They said
turn around would be 4 or 5 weeks but I got it back so fast I thought it was a mistake.
That's my carry-all-the-time-camera and I really missed it.I love it but if it's
non-warranty I'd pitch it and get the 5 or 6 MP camera.
