Post the contents of: /var/log/vsftpd/vsftpd.log
Then, describe how you have "Checked the service is running", and tell me how you are connecting to it. Ie, which ftp program are you using?, have you tried disabling firewalls?, have you checked on another machine?, what is the output of: /var/log/messages when the error occurs?
Think about the problem, and what you would need to diagnose it without being able to touch or see it physically, it would help me to help you.
