I just got this camera today for christmas and I charged the battery and put it in right and also put a new XD olympus card in correct and when I turn it on there is just like white blobs across the screen and it is making little noises like it is trying to focus. It wont focus on anything and Im not sure what to do. ( I also tried putting in the picture card it came with, and it does the same thing). Any help?
Merry Christmas to you, Have you Check your Macro and SuperMacro setting whether its turn on or not. The function is for closed up shooting. The sound is from the motorized elements and mechanism in the camera for focusing and shutter adjustment, it is normal. Direct your camera to any object and try to press half-shutter until the target become green. Good Luck

on the right side of the view finder there is a little bar. Make sure it is all the way down. If it is in the up position then it will make the viewfinder, shouldn't make the images blurry though. Also make sure it is in AF not MF (auto focus and manual focus).
the only wayi found to make the card accepted is to upgrade the firmware software, this can be downloaded from fuji website, and extract the file and copy it in the initial memory card supplied with the camera, then put bnewly charged batteries or ac adapter and on the camera holding the disp/back button. then it will show the option for the update, and then click ok . after installing ne firmware switch of the camera and put the new xd card on the camera and format the card. this will enable you to shoot inthe new card.
Fuji uses a 16MB xD card with
the camera, which won't hold too many 4 Megapixel photos
at the highest quality setting. So you should plan
on buying a larger card right away. xD cards are currently
available as large as 1GB, and I think 128MB is a good
starter size for most people. Be warned that xD cards
tend to be more expensive than CompactFlash and SD
Batteries don't play a role in it. Maybe it has slow focus. Try to push the shooting button to only half of its full push, wait a while until it focuses an then shoot by full press on the shoot button. You can also check if you have not switched on macro settings (flower in frame). If you do, turn it off.
Hey cambameriezz, I would make sure I purchased the correct battery, and if you did I would make sure the battery terminals in the camera are clean by cleaning them with a soft cotton swab. If none of this works I would try charging the camera using the ac adapter rather that plugging it into the computer. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
This is ether focusing motor itself or CCD sensor is starting to malfunction. In either case it should go to a repair outfit. If I am right and it is a CCD sensor you can have it repaired ( sensor module replaced see enclosed pic ) FREE OF CHARGE BY SONY.
When the camera is OUT OF FOCUS, these are the steps that you could try:
1 Power Reset - Turn off camera - Remove batteries for a minute - Reload batteries - Turn on camera
2 Distance - When the distance between the camera and the subject is too close, the strength of the light can cause the picture to overexposed and be blurred. On the contrary, if the distance is too far, the beam is too weak to shed enough light on the subject. Allow yourself enough space between you and your subject.
3 Shutter - If you press the shutter before the flash is fully charged, the flash will not be able to emit enough light and therefore the image can be blurred.
4 Surrounding Light - Use the fill-in flash mode to create a balanced shot when the surrounding light is very bright.
5 Backlight - Use the backlight control feature when the background is brighter than the subject.
6 Cleaning - Clean the lenses with a smooth piece of cloth.
7 ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction) - Put in ASR mode to prevent any blur
8 Master Reset - Press on MENU button - Press on the right button until you see SETUP - Scroll down until you see RESET - Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO - Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved - Turn off camera for a few seconds for changes to be saved
* If it still does not work, you need to send the camera for repair. Just contact the Manufacturer so they could tell you how to send camera safely.
It is possible that this is a CCD issue, and may be subject to a recall by Canon.
