Question about Fuji FinePix 40i Digital Camera
As i turn on my camera it makes a horrible 'trying' sound of the lens cap attempting to focus. And then as i switch to Photo or Video Mode i am once again bullied by the 'trying' noise and an enormous and blunt "FOCUS ERROR" written across the LCD. After i give up trying and turn the camera off; the lens is no longer covered. I believe it to be that the lens is no longer controlled and that its cover will no longer help protect him. I have no idea what could have caused this problem, any help and absolutly any crazy ideas would be well appreciated and definately taken into some sort of consideration. Thankyou saviours
"FOCUS ERROR" is quite a common problem with fuji cameras, and they don't acknowledge it as of yet. You could still try to reset the camera, either according to the manual, or by disconnecting all power supplies cables and cards for a few days. preferably both. If you have a warranty use it before it ends. Last resort would be to contact fuji and ask them about repair options, mention the fact that you know this problem is very common with their cameras. hope you find a solution thats not too expensive. Good luck

Just tried solution #3 (Frome Electrixman). Awesome it worked - need to remeber to push in on the glass part of the lens while switching off.
I've just become a daddy a couldn't take photos of my new baby girl until now - thanks a million electrixman

I saw the following advice on the internet, decided to try it and it worked then the message appeared again and now i cant get it done. Hope it works for you more than two days
Use a memory card reader and go to my computer, select the drive it is in and left click it. Select format. That did the trick for a couple of days. Oh BARE IN MIND FORMATING IT ERASES ALL PICTURES.
