Re: auto focus

If you were doing close up- did you switch to Macro? do bare in mind that in close too situations, the focus sensor it looking at something different to the viewfinder[Parallax syndrome]

Focus error

Check out this link:
After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

Clear photo

Is it day or night? If the latter, a good tripod will do wonders! How are you using the focus? Auto or manual? What is the shutter speed you are using? Please provide more details! :)
