I won't rule out a mechanical problem but there are lots of settings that could be the culprit and are more likley.
First, you could be locked in the macro setting
Second you might be set for center focusing and the camera is focusing on something in the background instead of things like people who are much closer. If you use center focus you must point the center of the frame at something as far away as the subject of your pictures, and depress the shutter half way, and then point it where you want to take the picture and depress it the rest of the way to shoot the picture.
I am presuming the pictures really are out of focus. There is a focus adjustment on the tiny view screen in the eyepiece viewer, and if that's what you've been looking though, and it's not in focus, everything will look like it's out of focus even if the camera is taking perfect pictures.
