Re: Poor picture quality
I heard of problems with the focus on this model when in landscape mode. It's being related to a firmware problem. Are you shooting in landscape mode perhaps?
In any case, this model is not very famous for taking sharp pictures, ans as far as I know got discontinued pretty fast. Kodak also won't repair it, just offer you a replacement.
I also heard that the camera gets focus problems from opening up while in the case - a design flaw makes the power button easy to press while its closed in a case, after a while it damages the lens. This is the only problem that I heard Kodak are willing to fix out of warranty, if you press them hard enough.
Hope you find a solution, good luck ;]

Poor picture quality can mean different things - could you be a little more specific, please ? For example is it over or under exposed ? Out of focus ? Suffering from camera shake or subject movement ? Electronic noise degrading the image definition ?
The red clock indicates that the date and time need to be set. As for the "poor" quality, there are many possibilities. If the colors are wrong, the most likely culprit is an improper white balance setting. If the pictures are blurry, that could be caused by subject motion, camera motion, improper focus, or a combination of the three. If pictures taken with the flash are too light or too dark, that could be because the subject is outside of the flash's range. Without knowing what you mean by "poor" I can't give you anything more than some ideas.
Possible that the CCD has failed on the camera. You can remove battery and keep aside and check few hours later. if the display shows as well as the downloaded images seems hazy and of poor quality it is possible that the optical sensor has failed.
If you had exposed the camera to direct sunlight this is a possibility.
I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.
e sure the quality setting is the highest - 7 megapixels. Otherwise, why buy a 7MP if you shoot at 3MP. The Canon 750 seems to have excellent picture quality where the Olympus has soft focusing (reviews at C-net).
If the photos look pixellated, perhaps you've turned down the resolution/quality setting? Check the manual for how to correct this.
If your photos seem generally hazy, your lens could need cleaning. Use a lint free cloth such as one for cleaning spectacles.
If all your photos have a smooth, out of focus appearance, it could be a camera fault. However, if you've recently been taking photos in poor light without flash, it could also be "camera shake". You can distinguish this from out of focus because the blur is slightly directional rather than being smooth in all directions. Points of light become lines not blurry discs.
Has this has a knock or been dropped?
Whether it is fixed lens or motor Zoom only such treatment would make the lens shift out of the focal plane
Try technical support of the makers website.
If it is failry new there may be an exchange option.
