Your problem may be that the camera is "locked" on manual focus. If so, you will need to go to the menu, scroll to "2" menu in "P" mode, and click on "focusing mode". From there, hit "single focus or continuous focus." It should correct the problem. Also, is the lens dirty? A dirty lens will not benefit the camera. The light may be too low, also. Try using a flashlight to focus, then take the picture.

I have a very similar problem: The part is scratched at my camera. I called the people here: http://support.sony-europe.com/DIME/KM/km.aspx?l=en and was told that the parts are not available new, but they send me a good one from a used camera. The name is "front lense". So good luck!
Spare yourself the trouble. I had researched it (I thought) and got one, and stuck it in. The screen read: "Unable to use," It continued to read this, even after I formatted the card, so I ended up giving it to my brother, who has a Kodak camera. Sorry!
I don't think there's any problem. Simply, a longer zoom means that - without a faster shutter speed - there is an increased probability for camera shake. Additionally, cameras usually struggle with focus in longer zoom. To be sure that there isn't a fault, do this:
1) Place the camera on a tripod or other sturdy surface 2) For additional stability (and to avoid camera shake due to shutter button movement), select the self-timer 3) Focus and take the shot. If it's still blurry, then yeah, there's a problem
Well, I also bought the DiMAGE Z2, and my problem was similar: It worked for some time, but then it started freezing sometimes, not responding to any button I pressed. One time, it froze, shut off, and I wasn't able to power it up again.
In short, the camera was still under its warranty, so I gave it to their lab and they fixed the problem.
