Re: camara not focusing/ zoom not working
Its an error code and shows problem of Lens mechanism. Lens focus / zoom motor is stuck that's why camera gives out of focus image. You need to replace Lens Assembly and it would cost you more then camera worth.

you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera time to
lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? If not, the good
pictures were just luck.
The overall image is out of focus If Pan focus is being used, the image may be out of focus; use Auto Focus Mode. Pan focus uses a focus range of several feet, so the image might be blurry but will be captured faster. This could occur in the EX-Z30, EX-Z40, EX-Z50, EX-Z55 and EX-Z57. If digital zoom was chosen and the image becomes unclear, only use optical zoom, and move closer.
HI there if your focus having problem then the images will come blury. But as per your problem its a lens sensor error or problem. Just replace the sensor and you will get the proper colored image. Thanks.
The camera has limited ability to zoom out. I believe you have a 3x optical zoom, and a 7 x digital zoom. Once you go beyond the optical zoom, the camera attempts to digitally render the zoom which can cause pixalation, or bluriness. This should never be an issue inside the optical zoom range as the image is going directly through the lens.
i just help the zoom to get out with a thin screwdriver and now the "ZOOM ERROR" message disappear, but i have another problem. The camera does not show the target (what to shoot) on the screen. It shows ONLY pictures on card.
I tried everything, but the target i choose does not appear on the screen.
Hello Chad, As you told the condition of the are blurry,This problem is not related to the setting or master reset.This cause is due to malfunctioning of zoom optical motor and sensor who focus the object.Therefore, the solution of it is, You have to change its optical lens assembly. I often deal these sort of cases in routine in said Model Although it's a very fine camera but dusty and moisturized conditions cause this problem.
There are many reasons why images can appear out of focus.
strangely if you think about it it is not focusing per se
like photographic cameras the focus is at infinity by default- from about 50cm - out
So if the images appear out of focus these are some of the reasons
shots taken in low light with a low ASA setting resulting in long exposure -thus camera shake.
Focus hunting- there are various methods used but if the mechanism cannot 'lock' onto something the focus motor will 'hunt'
Faulty zoom Optic Zoom mechanism.
Inadvertently set to 'Macro' mode
Grease on the lens
Careful checking of the camera- its settings- with the manual is essential before declaring the camera faulty
Don't forget the paper manual is a nodensed version of the full manual on the software disk.
It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures.
The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.

iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-8080 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-8080 Wide Zoom, the AF target mark automatically moves to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.
iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-5060 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system, to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-5060 Wide Zoom, the AF target zone automatically moves the to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.
