Questions & Answers
How do I reduce what looks to be over exposure on zoom?
There are so many causes, why a camera can over or underexpose. If you put the main dial on the camera logo or on the camera logo with the P next to is, every picture should be correct. Only when you have chosen for scene and the wrong scene is selected, you fool the camera.
If the main dial was not on one of the two logo's put it there and test.
Later look in the manual to see how you could improve a picture to your wish, if you want to shoot a fast moving object of a portrait.

Battery not charge
the battery may have developed a memory from continually recharging a partially used battery. The battery charges to this point and reads fully charged but when used it shows as flat because the charged portion is the bit that is used and not the whole battery. Replace the battery with a new one and only charge the battery when it shows as flat.

VIEW SCREEN IS SO BLURRY I CAN'T TELL WHAT ITS
Is it the viewfinder (that you hold up to your eye) or the screen that's blurry?
If the viewfinder is blurry, there should be a diopter adjustment to fix it, probably right above the rubber eye cup.
If the screen is blurry, you should take some pictures and video and view them on a computer. I they are sharp on the computer but blurry on the camera screen, there may be a problem with the screen and you may need to take it in for repair.
If the pictures are blurry on the computer as well, the camera may not be focusing properly. If you can't focus manually, or the camera can't focus when auto focus is turned on, you have good light, and aren't too close to your subject, then it may need to be serviced.

I have a sony DSC-F717
The chip that drives the image to the LCD is faulty or the LCD screen itself is faulty. The problem will most likely get worse or continue indefinitely. The only solution is to contact customer service and see if you can get it repaired. If it is under warranty it should be a free fix but if that expired you will have to pay to get it fixed. Luckily though, the camera sensor is fine and it still will function but your display will continue operating oddly.
