Having problems with your Fuji FinePix 40i Digital Camera ?

Focus error depriving me of fun


\015 As i turn on my camera it makes a horrible 'trying' sound of the lens cap attempting to focus. And then as i switch to Photo or Video Mode i am once again bullied by the 'trying' noise and an enormous and blunt "FOCUS ERROR" written across the LCD. After i give up trying and turn the camera off; the lens is no longer covered. I believe it to be that the lens is no longer controlled and that its cover will no longer help protect him. \015\012\015\012I have no idea what could have caused this problem, any help and absolutly any crazy ideas would be well appreciated and definately taken into some sort of consideration. \015\012\015\012Thankyou saviours\015

I have posted this on several web sites. The fix is easy for this camera. Just push in on the lens at the same time you turn it off. Resets the lens timing to focus. All done!
"FOCUS ERROR" is quite a common problem with fuji cameras, and they don't acknowledge it as of yet.\015\012\015\012You could still try to reset the camera, either according to the manual, or by disconnecting all power supplies cables and cards for a few days. preferably both.\015\012\015\012If you have a warranty use it before it ends.\015\012\015\012Last resort would be to contact fuji and ask them about repair options, mention the fact that you know this problem is very common with their cameras. hope you find a solution thats not too expensive.\015\012\015\012Good luck
