Hi nicoleashley You can send your camera to FUJI and pay $120 or you can try this at home for 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.... Happy Snapping JIM PINEAPPLE

Focus Error

It's a message given when the internal lenses get jammed, possibly due to debris within the gears that move the focus. The "Focus Error" message can involve many FujiFilm models.

Fujifilm finepix a820 zoom error ... i turn the camera on and it wont focus... message on lcd screen is zoom error. it will not take picture and when i turn it off agan the zoom bit wont go back inside

    This problem is related to the malfunctioning of zoom motor, Two possibilities are there,
1- If company provides technical help on component leve in your regionl then zoom motor may replace.
2- If component level support is not available then LENS ASSEMBLY must be replaced.
   Contact your nearest fuji service centre or contact any expert nearby for the specific part replacement.
    Thanks for using fixya.

When FinePix V10 digital camera is switched on the LCD screen is blank, The lens works but does not display picture. FujiFilm Digital Camera FinePix V10

Hi, When you say the screen is "blank" Is it totally blank or do the icons appear on screen? can you review any previous pictures etc?
As the camera still powers up it is possible that the ribbon for the screen has popped out of it's socket.
My email is listed in "the only way i know how.." In my tips n tricks section on my profile if you would like more advice.

The lens will not retract when the camera is turned off. the screen says focus error when the camera is turned on. is there a way to fix this problem?

I was able to lightly tap the lens in with the tip of my finger while turning the camera off. Then I applied a little pressure on the lens while turning it back on. I guess I was thinking that I would make the lens work a little harder to come out and tighten whatever may have slipped or something. Anyway, after dropping it on carpet and tapping the lens, then the pressure.... It works. Hope this helps..

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.....
