Re: s56oo fuju finepix camera focus error

Hit the lens (smack it on you're leg); that seems to be the solution..........
But try cleaning the lens and the AF assistent first!!

Re: s56oo fuju finepix camera focus error

Ha right now i have the same problem and like everyone else i havent dropped it or damaged it.
Fuji being awesome as they are wont cover this in warranty and its about $230 + to get it fixed and reportedly comes back with more errors than before

so how about you try what i'm about to do and smash it with a hammer, in future try canon or something else.

I am now a photographer without a camera for two months my camera is barely a yr old.

Thank you fuji!!!

My daughter has a fuji finepix S5200 with the focus error on the screen. Can this be repaired resonably or is it just a paperweight now?

According to the manual, you should turn the camera on again, taking care not to touch the lens. It also says to turn the camera off and on again. If the message still appears, it says to contact your Fuji dealer. I'm sure you've already tried turning it off and on. Hope this helps maybe. Good luck.

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

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!
