When you have using macro mode, you need to disable Flash mode.macro mode will show picture(flower) and avoid hand shake during this mode.
When you take in 10cm range in macro mode, it will take more longer time to autofoucus, you need to be freeze a while until it take the picture. The best it, try to take picture in without you inhale. it will avoid you from shage

Try using in different DIS mode when you using the flash.
In some mode, it will have twice flash. First flash it will check the condition and wait until second flash and dont move your camera.

Yes, that is a good option. You know I had a similar problem. Whenever I tried to take a picture it appears too bright due to an active flash. I deactivated it, and my pictures began to look cool. Please,try deactivating your flash. Hope this helped.

Flash setting doesn't work

Does your camera gave a small battery in place somewhere that is used to maintain the date and time settings? (it is generally a watch battery type small flat silver disk.) You should not have to reset time and date after each battery change.

Many digital cameras eat up batteries quickly, especially when using the flash alot., that is why it is important to use good quality rechargeables whenever possible.

Blurred pictures on fuji finepix J15fd

This is the camera shake warning, and thus the blur. It is suggesting you are using too slow of a shutter speed for the lighting conditions. The flash should be set to "auto" in order that it will automatically fire if the light is insufficient. Check your flash settings to make sure it's not set to "slow-sync" or "fill-in" settings.

Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this.

Did you try to reinitialize? Setup menu go down to the third Setup#1 menu and make sure you click OK to reinitialize. That's what the manual said.
