Sorry, but I don't quite understand what this means. You mean the camera won't focus, and the pics come out blurry?
Just tried it, and I have no issues taking a photo of a note on white paper. It focuses very quickly, and the pic is clear with just the default settings. Perhaps try to experiment with the camera distance (holding the camera closer or farther) or better illumination.
