Focus Issue on my Fx1

Hi! My FX1 can't focus even though I put it on auto mode, does anybody experience this on there FX1 or it's just me.

Could your camera be too close to the subject when zoomed in?

Not that close, there was an instance when I was doing a run and gun interview and the lens was focusing more on the background then on the subject.

FX1 auto focus

When the background has fine sharp detail (such as wall paper) it tends to capture auto focus (in my experience). Usually I use the camera in manual (which is normal "professional" practice) but auto focus is useful in shooting live action and I haven't seen any problems there.
