I have a Fuji FinePixZ5 that is about 6 months old. The pictures have always been extremely clear but now when I try to take pictures, the view will focus for a few seconds then go to a grainy focus. When the picture is actually taken, the outcome of all pictures are substandard.

Have you tried focusing before you take a photo? To do this, press down the shutter button on your camera but don't push it far enough to take a photo. This enables the camera to focus on what it's about to photograph before you press the shutter button again and take the photo.
I have this problem also with Fuji Z90 model. Problem is fixed and focus now working ok. Camera is fall down and after when camera was started giving sound click click from focus big motor and error on screen Focus error Focus ( lens ) was open ( small cover on top bellow sticker ) Small "snail" gear is taked out . Two sliding segment adjusted
for focus ( upper full up and lower full down - beware about spring inside below this focus pins )and snail is inserted back. Camera started and focus start
working. I need to make small adjustment . Reason when camera is
started picture is not clear and before using camera i need to do full
zoom in and back zoom out. After this picture is crystal clear and all
Lens errors (zoom errors on Fuji's) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.
same here - 1 month old... camera never dropped at any point. thankfully there's a warranty!! just about to send it back to olympus for repair but after repair if it does it again i'm going to return it as not fit for purpose - i really don't fancy the repair bill if it hapens again when out of warranty!
Check house not inadvertently set it to macro.
If it has manual focusing try to reset the focus collar - check the manual for something you may have overlooked
Failing all that look up the Fuji Tech Support team in the website
I have this same problem. If I shut the camera off then on again it clears up. Someone from Fuji said that this is because the Auto-Focus is stuck on. They advised to half push the shutter button to release the auto-focus.
