Fuji FinePix V10 Focus Error

I have the Fuji FinePix V10 camera, I got a message saying "Focus Error" and it wouldn't take photos. Then I held the camera upside down and jiggled it a little, thinking perhaps something had gotten into the lens apparatus as it zoomed or retracted, not much improvement. Now, as soon as I turn on the camera, even though the camera is set with the "tight/wide" zoom ring right in the middle, the lens extends as if it is trying to aoom, and the image is extremely blurry. I can work it back to about mid-range and even do a little zooming, but when I try to get it back to the default, the camera lens will not retract all the way unless I actually turn the camera off. Help, please?

    My Fuji Fine Pix v10 gives me a focus error. The lens won't retract when shut off. IT keeps trying to zoom when turned on. I tried the reset but it didn't work. Lens still extended. and the error and beeps.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Focus Error


It's a message given when the internal lenses get jammed, possibly due to debris within the gears that move the focus. The "Focus Error" message can involve many FujiFilm models.

When I try to take a picure it says focus error When i try to take photo, 'focus error' message flashes on the screen.


you can try 'knock' this to try free it but the motor that controls the focus is probably siezed.It's fairly common to get zoom/focus error with several types of compact camera, I think the cause is probably being switched on while in a case.
I've dismantled one down to components to find it was the motor itself and been unable to do anything!
If you want to sell it for parts, I'm after one - email me "a.r.jardine@swan.ac.uk"

Hi nicoleashley You can send your camera to FUJI and pay $120 or you can try this at home for zip...it worked for me! I to have had focus error problem with my Fuji A310 camera and after much frustration and phone calls i decided to try a different approach to this problem........ I FORMATTED my 64mb XD card in my computer memory card reader using the FAT setting and guess what my camera is magically working now..... Why couldn't FUJI helpline have told me this when i spoke to them, answer because they were to preoccupied in trying to sell me a new camera!!!!!as if, there service is nonexistent and proven!!!!! Why is it called a HELPLINE then should rename it "FUJI RESELL LINE" hey....or maybe "FUJI NON HELPLINE" Also formatted 16mb card same way and working also, maybe i should get a job at FUJI hey only problem is i wouldn't endorse there products, very good picture quality in an unreliable package..suggest any better brand for next time nicoleashley ? ADDENDUM TO PREVIOUS SOLUTION FROM JIM PINEAPPLE--- After you have formatted the XD Card in your computer card reader reinstall card to camera and using the camera software format the card again, this prepares the card to accept it's normal data... P.S. I called the Fuji Ha Ha Helpline here in AUSTRALIA and informed them of this procedure so as to help all the poor souls like us that purchased our only Fuji digital camera, as if they didn't know already, and the moral of the story is as of 27-8-2007 Fuji would be absolute Mongrels to not inform via there helpline how to fix there very common "FOCUS ERROR" problem which is common across the Fuji digital camera range, just google FUJI FOCUS ERROR.... Happy Snapping JIM PINEAPPLE
