My digital camera does not let me take pictures anymore
As soon as I turn on my camera, it focus right away on CU and stays there. I cannot take a picture, I press the button but it is blocked. If I try to download the pictures I took when it was working, same thing. If I press the PC button it is blocked. Thank you for giving me a TIP; I do not want to send it to fix it if it is possible to fix right away.

Press menu and go over to setup. go down to reset and press right arrow to highlight ok and press select. Then try to take another picture to see if it will focus. If not it will have to be sent in and I have seen it sometimes cost around $120 to fix.
When that problem has happen to my Fuji A210 is because the slider that cover the lense has not gone all the way to the right ! I usually move the slider strongly 2 o 3 times to the left and to the right, and then turn the camera on. Fortunately, that trick has worked for me, so I hope it also works for you !!!
Make sure your subject is within the camera's range. You should be at least 31 inches away to take a picture without the flash, and 31 inches to 8 feet away to take a picture with the flash. You can take a picture as close as 8 inches in macro mode. When you take macro close- ups, make sure you have adequate lighting (with the flash disabled). Using a tripod will help you capture sharp pictures. Make sure you hold the camera steady after you press the shutter button (until the red light starts to flash), and your subject isn't moving. If you are shaking the camera when you lock the focus, a warning icon appears in the right corner of the LCD. If you want to photograph a moving subject, you can change the shutter speed while the camera is connected to your computer. Try increasing the shutter speed. For more information, see Chapter 6. Make sure your flash is not set to flash off. When you focus on a nearby object, your picture's background may appear blurry. Try changing your focus.
