    My Fuji S5600 has just developed a problem "Error Focus" I have been on to Amazon where I bought it and can get no satisfaction from them as they kept giving me telephone numbers to ring which were all unrecognizable (4 in all) and one that I did get through to was an advertising agency for Amazon. They dont know what there doing. I have written to Fuji at bedford and still awaiting a reply.

    Same problem on 1.5 year old camera.

    Tried to: change batteries, turn off/on, go into menu and reset all settings.

    None worked. Next, planning to call telephone numbers and discouraged by results that others with same problem say they received.

    hi...I have the same problem but nothing of these suggestions were helpful. I've turned on/off my camera 50-60 times and seems the little electric engine of autofocus can't work because when I turning off I hear a little cyclical if can't reposition to beginning

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!!

    Holy ****. I hit the lens with the palm of my hand while the camera was off. I turned it back on and it worked. Thank you so much. I am leaving for a family vacation tomorrow and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to take any pictures. You are my hero!!!!



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!
