Pictures out of focus indoors

When I take photo's indoors, they always come out blurry and out of focus but when I take pictures outdoors they're fine. This has only just started happening in the last couple of months and I have had the camera for about 2 years now.....any ideas what this could be as I can't find any troubleshooting advice in the manual

    Thanks for your advice. I guess I'll have to take it into a Sony repairman and fork out ridiculous amounts of money for them to 'look' at it and then 'fix'it!? I was hoping it might be something simple that I could do myself? Replacing a flash unit would have to be done by a pro wouldn't it?

You know, i guess it's not the flash unit, because it should not be blurry anyway if the flash unit has a problem, instead the output should be dark and grainy. Try adjusting your focus settings and everything about aperture... green earth

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2....

Hi Usually outdoor picture are good within small compact camera. They designed like that. But now your unit just have flash pcb defective. When flash function work, your picture will be good indoor. Regarding your flash unit would be brown fuse or replacement of flash unit. It is 50 and 50 chance. Your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 95 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

I own cannon G9. I fail to get good sharp open outdoor pictures at night especially in place not well lighted. Do I all the time have to take pictures Manually to get sharp pictures as we do with focus...

If you have tried using the auto setting and it is still doing the blurry pictures it sounds like a problem with your camera not the settings themselves.
This blog suggests a couple of the reasons might be:
"When your image appears distorted and with altered colors, in most of the cases there are two possible reasons:
- The internal shutter gets stuck , does not open completely or
The image sensor is damaged.... "

blurry pictures often comes from the slightest movement when the pictures is snapped.
Don;t know if that is your problem or not try a photo tripod and see if that helps or check your trouble shooting area of your amnual. if you don't have the manual go to this site for any type of manual::::

Pictures are blurry.

Try pressing the shutter button half way to let it focus before you shoot. You also may want to make sure the camera is in auto mode and not set to any particular setting.

This camera has a very fast button to shutter release.But,in eg low light situations or indoors you still need to pre-focus by holding the button down part way,and pan if you can.Use flash ,it is very intelligent on this camera. Dont' forget to choose your focus mode.Like an SLR you can choose whether to have multi,spot or average subject to focus on.If you have a central subject it is more usual to use spot (or multi) metering.Its your choice.Experiment.Don't forget to make sure autofocus is turned on,otherwise you will have to focus all shots manually.

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics

It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
