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!

Focus error on s5600 fuli help


The clip on the focus drive has detached itself from the motor thread ( or possibly broken )
There are no drive gears on this model, only a motor with a screw thread about half an inch long which the focus lens travels up and down on. This is attached to the drive thread by a small clip and a tension spring.
You will have to access you lens unit to acertain the problem.

Help me i have lines on my pictures and i dont know what to do!!!


Your shutter is not closing correctly. only solution is to strip it down and clean the shutter. The lines are due to over exposure. pictures in daylight will appear too bright. The video function should work ok as it does not use the shutter.

I want to have the camera take a pic of my family on its own


Yes. You can even choose between 2 seconds and 10 seconds. Put the people in the shot. Focus the camera on them by holding the shutter button down halfway, and without releasing the shutter button, press the button all the way down to start the self-timer. (That's what the manual says. I go into the menu on the camera and set it up that way.) To do it from the menu: when the camera is on, hit the menu/ok key. The self-timer mode will pop up. Hit the right arrow. Here you can choose between the 2 and 10 second timer options. Select one. The timer won't start until you have pressed the shutter button halfway to focus and press the shutter button all the way down as stated earlier.

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

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!!
