Pictures are extremely blurry, like smeared. Also now lens won't close when off
It all happened at once taking pics for ebay. Didn't damage it, thought maybe it was dead batteries, but new batteries didn't help. Sometimes if I turn it off and turn it back on it will take one shot and then after that it's all wildly blurry. Also, strangely, now the lens does not retract when I shut it off. When I just tried it again I got a message "E18" on the screen. HELP!!!

Re: Pictures are extremely blurry, like smeared. Also now...
If the pictures are smeared, then your CCD is bad and needs to be replaced. The "E:18" error message is a generic message meaning your lens is defective... so it sounds like you need the lens completely replaced.
I would look for a defective camera online and make a good camera out of the two. If you would like to have your A75 repaired, I don't have current pricing for a lens assembly but I can get it for you.
Good luck from Darntoothysam com, and let us know if we can help.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:
this is a tipically problem, of a pressure on the lens, if the lens go out. or if the camera are dopped. to resolve this problem alone you must have specifically knowledge. the cost of the reparation is high. so if you want prove withe the exact model number, search on the ebay international seller the komlet lens with ccd for you camera. any american seller if you buy the lens, can give a guide to change the lens block. but this is not a symply job. if you make one error you loose the camera and the lens. the price of your lens block can go from 25 to 35 euro, if you can change it alone you have resolved with this money. ok.?? sorry for my bad english if you want help can you write me and i will help you
If it is brand new, return the camera, and show what is happening. The blurry pictures has to do with a few things. A damaged lens system, a dirty lens, other damage to the lens while it was extended, water or moisture damage can also cause this, including internal circuit damage or broken parts. Make sure it has not had an impact or other damage, because if it had, then more than likely you will have no warranty, and it will not be taken back by the store.
For the jewelry shots you will need an accessory telephoto lens with a macro feature OR a close-up filter set. The lens will give you more features, but the filters will be the less expensive option. The lens should also help with your video shots. I have a Z650, and I use both options - depending on the situation. eBay is a good cost-effective source for these accessories.
Have you changed the settings in the camera? When are you getting this problem? Is it when you try to shoot in low light?Does it appear like the pictures are shaken or is it out of focus? If they are shaken, use a higher ISO to shoot. If it appears out of focus, first check the lens for some smears. Clean the lens with a clean dry cotton cloth.
Check if there is fungus on the lens (this appears like spider's web or crack marks). If there is fungus, or you are still getting pctures blurred, take it to an authorized service center.
I'm having the same problem with my Panasonic Lumix camera. A year of perfectly clear photos, and now, even after a cleaning, is taking consistently blurry photos. I'm a photographer. I know about half-depressed shutters, focusing on objects, etc. What is wrong with my camera?!?
