You do not need to use substring at all since your format doesn't hold that info.

SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss");
String fechaStr = "2013-10-10 10:49:29.10000";  
Date fechaNueva = format.parse(fechaStr);

System.out.println(format.format(fechaNueva)); // Prints 2013-10-10 10:49:29
