Focus error is displayed in my Camera...

Hi all, I'm having a Fujifilm f420 camera. I've been using it without any problem till now. I've not been using for a period of 2 months. When I put a freshly charged battery pair & turn it on it says Focus error. Some told that camera might have been dropped. There is no chance for that as i placed it safe inside my locker. What could be the problem...??? Help me out... Thanks in advance...

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it. Never put in a freshly charged battery in any unit, let the battery cool down for five minutes or more, a freshly charged battery has higher voltage or power than normal battery and you may have a chance to damage your unit. Some people will say its not true cause they are doing it for a long time, they are just lucky I may say. Never take bad chance if theres any.

Focus error fix

In the user manual page 109 it says, when the camera reports a focus error, switch off the camera and after a few seconds switch it on again. If the error persists, contact a Fujifilm dealer.

I hope you checked the battery is full and you did not switch to a manual mode. Check the settings if they are what you thing they should be. It happens to me, that my camera wont do what I want, because I hit a rail, causing the settings to be different from what I thought and wanted.

FOCUS ERROR

I also had this problem. When starting the focus error alert came. Trying to move the focus button also triggered this. When I turned it off, the lens did not pull back.After being close to trowing it away, I used a little bit more force than before and turned the lens manually. I heard a click, and than it worked again. PS: Follow this tip on your own risk.....

Focus error

It sounds like you've either broken the focusing motor or sheared the connecting gears. Though the latter is less serious (and cheaper to fix) both require the camera to be sent off to the repair man. Good luck!
