In the user manual page 109 it says, when the camera reports a focus error, switch off the camera and after a few seconds switch it on again. If the error persists, contact a Fujifilm dealer.
I hope you checked the battery is full and you did not switch to a manual mode. Check the settings if they are what you thing they should be. It happens to me, that my camera wont do what I want, because I hit a rail, causing the settings to be different from what I thought and wanted.
In digital photography, the focus error is especially an error message on Fujifilm FinePix digital cameras, usually caused by dirt in the lens mechanism. To avoid any further damage, the camera electronics totally disables the autofocus system and refuses to take any still image. If out of warranty, the repair costs can easily exceed US $100
A couple of quick things come to mind first is you may be way to close to your subject for the camera to focus OR you are trying to take a pictures of a shiny subject, painted wall a mirror or some other subject that lacks contrast
Sir, You have used the camera since 2004 upto 2008. Now, you know that 4 year is enough time for a digital camera to run. The only solution is to throw it to dustbin & buy a new one. Otherwise, you may spend money in vain with your existing camera. Why?
I also had this problem. When starting the focus error alert came. Trying to move the focus button also triggered this. When I turned it off, the lens did not pull back.After being close to trowing it away, I used a little bit more force than before and turned the lens manually. I heard a click, and than it worked again. PS: Follow this tip on your own risk.....
You can send your camera to FUJI and pay $120 or you can try this at home for zip...it worked for me!
I to have had focus error problem with my Fuji A310 camera and after much frustration and phone calls i decided to try a different approach to this problem........
I FORMATTED my 64mb XD card in my computer memory card reader using the FAT setting and guess what my camera is magically working now.....
Why couldn't FUJI helpline have told me this when i spoke to them, answer because they were to preoccupied in trying to sell me a new camera!!!!!as if, there service is nonexistent and proven!!!!!
Why is it called a HELPLINE then should rename it "FUJI RESELL LINE" hey....or maybe "FUJI NON HELPLINE"
Also formatted 16mb card same way and working also, maybe i should get a job at FUJI hey only problem is i wouldn't endorse there products, very good picture quality in an unreliable package..suggest any better brand for next time nicoleashley ?
ADDENDUM TO PREVIOUS SOLUTION FROM JIM PINEAPPLE---
After you have formatted the XD Card in your computer card reader reinstall card to camera and using the camera software format the card again, this prepares the card to accept it's normal data...
P.S. I called the Fuji Ha Ha Helpline here in AUSTRALIA and informed them of this procedure so as to help all the poor souls like us that purchased our only Fuji digital camera, as if they didn't know already,
and the moral of the story is as of 27-8-2007 Fuji would be absolute Mongrels to not inform via there helpline how to fix there very common "FOCUS ERROR" problem which is common across the Fuji digital camera range, just google FUJI FOCUS ERROR....
