Make sure the lens is clean--use a soft cloth and don't press hard when wiping--use a circular motion starting from the center of the lens and working to the outside--that way, you wont grind dirt into the glass. If the lens is dirty enough, the camera will actually try to focus on the smudge or finger prints on the lens! Look into the lens and use the zoom button--do the interior lenses move forward and backward? The zoom button could be damaged(liquid or impact), or the lens could be jammed due to impact or liquid( I just fixed my sister-in-law's unit--had cola in it and sugar acts like super glue when dry.)(Lenses jam due to excess heat, too) NEVER leave a camcorder in a hot car. The grease used to enable the parts to move freely and smoothly can flow to sensitive areas and stick like glue.
If the focusing is indeed stuck, the unit must be repaired at a reputable facility. Don't send it in through a retail store unless under warranty.--Hope I was of help.---Rick
