i think that pictures are blurry. Is it true ?, if so please check the front lens element. I suppose that you clean it regularly with cotton or any soft clothe. Actually all the lens elements are hi-brid when you clean the element with clothe so many times, there will be scratches on the element. that's why i think you get the blurry picture. Just check out the lens and if so you have to change the element or lens assy.
so go to fuji shop.

When you depress the shutter button halfway, you are (in fact) activating the focus mechanism.
If in AF mode, you should hear the 'beep' when focus is achieved.
However, bear in mind that the XSi has three focussing modes: Quick mode, Live View, and Manual. There is a difference in how focussing is achieved between the Quick and Live View modes. (see page 102 onwards of the user manual "using AF to focus").
Also, the barrel of the lens will move during the focus operation.
If this does not happen, then there is a definate problem.
Having images in focus despite having no movement on the lens, simply means that the aperture settings are probably small enough to give sufficient depth of field to include your subject.
A couple of quick things come to mind first is you may be way to close to your subject for the camera to focus OR you are trying to take a pictures of a shiny subject, painted wall a mirror or some other subject that lacks contrast
u just cannot click unless the object is focused, when u push click buttonhalf click the object should be focused,if not u cannot click,it is clear ur lens unt focussing is failed,so focussing mechnism must be serviced if parts broken,replaced, get it done by a camera tec.
Yes, I do have the same experience but it happens to be solved using the AI focus mode instead the single shot one. We also have to know that the AA of this camera is stronger than the previous generations of XXD cameras.
For the ones saying about not being as sharp as the point an shot, take into account that you can set the sharpening to be as strong as you want with a limit of 7 degrees of sharpening in camera. (but it only works with jpegs)
After the basics (cleaning the lens, replacing the batteries, etc.), 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!
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....
