I've solved the focus error on my S6500fd by dropping it on the ground and violently shakeing it.
I will never buy a Fuji camera again, next time it will be a Nikon.

I have had an E550 for about two years and a few months ago found the focus error message came up and the camera failed to function. A friend of mine was with us at the time and suggested that as the price had now been considerably reduced since I purchased mine it was effectively dead in the water, so if he ruined it there was no loss.
In short what he did was as follows:
1. The camera fails with the lens barrel open.
2. Turn the camera towards you, holding it in your left hand.
3.Grip the lens barrel with the right and and put a firm torque in an anticlockwise direction until you hear (and feel a clunk).
4. Maintaining the torque on the barrel, press the on off button.
5. After a few turns and presses the system appears to re-connect with its focusing system.
I have had to do this a couple of times but IT WORKS FOR ME.

    do u have a solution for the s5200


I had a similar problem, and found I had set focus mode for C-AF or continuas focus. I set for S-AF single point focus, and I can focus on the foreground or backgroung. Remember it will focus on a high contrast feature in the focus zone, so tree limbs in the foreground can cause an error.

Try buying lense cleaner to remove fingerprints, smudges and other 'particles' from the optical lense. Call Fuji, let them advise you.

Fuji Finepix S5200- Problem with autofocus

Hi I had exactly that problem and in frustration left it in the cupboard for 2 months and then it worked again perfectly, but the same problem has reappeared, I have had a quote from Fuji in Singapore s$246 for new lens and it is only 2.2years old! Can sympathize and would think twice about buying another or even fixing it.

S5200 Focus range

I assume you're taking the mickey out of Fuji here. But just in case you're not it is obviously meant to describe the AF assist lamps range in low light conditions.
