Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blury pictures My samsung s500 began taking blury pictures only when there was alot of humidity, like at the beach, but now it does it all the time. Every time I snap a picture it lookx like the colors are running down, sort of like being pulled from the bottom. Does any one know what causes this? Will it cost me more to fix it than to buy a nwe one? The cam is only a few moths old.

I get blury pictures

Possible that the CCD is a suspect. Try and allow the camera to be switched on for a long time, keep free from moisture or near a lamp to dry.
If not best is to take a referral for consensus without tampering without proper jig, spares and tools.

Blury screen

HI there your screen is ok but sorry to say that the lens does not focus because the lens guide pin is damaged or dislocated. So replaced the guide pin or repaired it. After that your camera will work properly. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Blury pictures

When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Blury Display on FE140

It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.
