Question about Fuji FinePix A310 Digital Camera
Check out this link: www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/fuji-finepix-z1_question.html?qid=4289
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!

Hi Minoo I to have had focus error problem with 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 card reader using the FAT setting and guess what my camera is magically working now..... Why couldnt 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!!!!! Why is it called a HELPLINE then should rename it "FUJI RESELL LINE" hey.... 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 Minoo?

All I did was take out the card, blow on it a little and it worked again!!! Try that!

I had the same problem and from what I have read on the net figured it was cheaper to buy a new one than repair it. So instead I tried dropping it lightly to see if something would jiggle and now it works!

At two years old that £64 will go a long way to buying a current better specified camera Thats the way to go I think

Hit the lens (smack it on you're leg); that seems to be the solution..........
But try cleaning the lens and the AF assistent first!!

SOURCE: fuji finepix f50 camera was
Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfortunately these lugs are also clips which hold the focus lens inplace. These are tiny. hard to repair
