Camera has worked fine for 2 years and even recently. Now the images are "streaking" and semi-blurry. Picture throwing a cup of paint on a wall...the paint will run down. This is how my images look in the viewfinder: it seems to run down as if paint flowing down the wall.
Camera was not dropped, but one thing I recall was I turned it on and the lens started to protrude, something blocked it's path so it couldn't fully extend. I heard the camera beep 3 times...I corrected the obstruction and the lens fully extended, but then immediately the aforementioned issue cropped up.
Sounds like ccd sensor faulty.the only thing you can try as you say fault happened when lens got jammed is to reset camera by removing batteries for a few secs and reinserting,if this does not work will have to go to service.,

I inform you that the problem only is moisture. Please follow this.
1. Put the camera in sunlight for few hours. After that use it & if you face same problem then
2. You need to visit camera repair shop and they open the camera completely and clean all the inside part of the camera. because you need to clean the moisture inside of lens, viewfinder & sensor too.
So only hope in sunlight. If its solve then fine.
Slow down the shutter speed of your digital camera. Whenever you must take a photo in a low light environment decrease your shutter speed. It is virtually impossible to take a blurry digital photo with a an extremely slow shutter speed. Even if your digital camera has an automatic or semi-automatic mode, slowing down the shutter speed will still produce a better digital photo.
Wait until your digital camera is completely focused. Most digital cameras will notify you that they are focus ready by a blinking light, on screen indicator or a noise. Confirm that your digital camera has locked onto your desired target before pressing the shutter release button. Some digital cameras may have trouble focusing on subjects easily. If this happens use an auto focus mode to produce a better digital photo.
Prevent your digital camera from shaking. Shaky hands or sudden movement will definitely produce a blurry digital photo. When holding your digital camera, make sure the viewfinder is firmly pressed against your face before snapping a digital photo. If you do not have image stabilization on your digital camera, then think about investing in a tripod. This will allow you to steady your digital camera for the perfect shot.
Make sure the digital image is definitely a blurry one and not just a soft image. On many occasions soft images are mistaken for blurry ones. Soft images occur often with digital cameras. When printing these images, the softness rarely shows through. You will be able to easily edit these photos by sharpening the details for a better printing experience.
Take your time. Instead of rushing to take a digital photo, set aside enough time to shoot your image. Hurrying up will not produce an excellent digital photo. You don't need to be overwhelmingly slow when taking the photo, but try your best not to take a hasty one.
It sounds like the resolution on the monitor may be set incorrectly in Photoshop. Try a different monitor setting. Twelve megapixels may result in your monitor "seeing" so many pixels it tries to ignore the excess ones, resulting in an image that looks poor on your monitor. If you order one print, that may give you an idea of the true printed quality without spending a lot of money on a bunch of bad prints. The F50 is truly an excellent camera and gives super images, from my experience.
In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry. http://www.letsgodigital.org/en/news/articles/story_4719.html
Here's a link to some information regarding these problems.
Good Day, is the blurry picture pinkish in color? It might be an imager(CCD) problem, you can check it at sony support website, if it qualifies, just read the provisions, I will not comment on the policy, maybe it differ from country to country, i'm here in the philippines. thanks
