Re: All pictures are blurred and when looking at screen...
Your camera's Focus mode may be set on Macro Selectable in which case the Auto Focus Range will be "wide: 0.07–0.7 m, tele: 0.4–0.7 m (macro AF)" as quoted in the specifications from www.kodak.com web page for the EasyShare M1033. While this setting is great for a close-up of a flower, anything more than a meter (about one yard) away will be blurred unless you reset your Auto Focus mode back to "normal AF" or "landscape mode"
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Could be several reasons. The front lens is dirty. That can be cleaned with a lens pen. Or a soft cloth, the same as you should use for your glasses. It could be there is mould in the lens system. You can see this when looking into the lens, passed the front lens. That can't be fixed, without replacing the whole lens. And when the camera is dropped on the lens, it could be the elements are not aligned anymore. Same as with mould, only an expensive repair could cure that. I hope you did not try to clean the front lens with any fluid like alcohol, because that is irreparable to.
Question is, Is your lens blurred,or are all your pictures blurred? If you can see the front of the lens is really dirty, you could try to clean it with a lens pen. One side has a soft brush to remove the dust and perhaps other debris. Please try to remove debris with a little presuerd air. If only smear is left on the lens, you than can use the other end of a lens pen. It has a very soct pad, with wich you than can remeove smear. If the lens looks ok, please don't touch it. Perhaps you don't take enough time to let the camera focus on the subject. When making a picture, press the shutter release button half, till he AE/AF indicater flashes and you hear a beep, then you can press down and make the picture. If you are making pictures without a steady hand, pictures also can come out blurred. Special when there is little light avalible. Then choise a higher ISO. I hope this helps. You still can fine the manual online.
There are three reasons why do you get a blurred images.
1. The camera lens is dirty
- clean the lens with soft and dry cloth
2. AF frame (lit red) and !AF appeared when taking pictures.
- check the focus on the subject and take pictures
3. A small camera icon appeared when taking pictures
- It may cause camera shae. Hold the camera steadily.Use flash photography. A tripod may be recommended, depending on the scene and mode.

Definitely you just have to change the lens of the camera, because of the reason of it becoming blur is because the water that went in formed some form of moisture where it is not necessarily needed.
The moisture formed blocks the lens from receiving the light rays from outside and that is why it goes blur, just clean uo the camera screen and see, that cleaning should be done by a phone expert.......
I think your camera has a diopter adjustment. If it does, it'll be located on the right side of the eyepiece. It's a small wheel with a + and -. Adjust that until the image is clear. -or- It's possible that it is in need of cleaning. If you plan to remove the focusing screen, be exceptionally careful not to scratch it. Has it been subjected to extreme moisture conditions?
If you have a SLR camera you can take your lense off and clean it.. I do not reccoment canned air because if you do not use it the right way liquid will come out. At best buy they have cleaning kits, and in their kit they have a little brush that you can squeeze regular air and brush off anything on the lense or around the lense, If you have a SLR camera you might have a built in cleaning option... SLR means Single Lense Reflex and this means your lense can come off/interchangable..
you could try 2 things.. check the configuration if its been changed.. the best thing you could try is do a factory reset... there must be an option to set your camera to default values.. the other thing is cleaning the lens with something really smooth, otherwise you could scratch the lens.. hope that works
It may be the equipment or it may be the way you are holding / taking the picture.
Here are suggestions on how to take better zoom lens pictures (this also applies to any camera) before you start diving into the equipment.
1) Use the fastest shutter speed possible. This reduces the amount of time of exposure, this limiting the amount of motion blur that can happen. 2) Don't hold the camera by hand. Either use a tri-pod or rest the camera on something stable, like a wall, rock, bench, etc. This makes it less likely that the camera will move when you are taking the picture, thus reducing motion blurr in the image. 3) If you have to hold the camera by hand, hold the zoom lens with your left hand (because it is more towards the center of gravity than the camera is) & try to slow your breathing & take the picture between heart beats. 4) Also, another thing that helps is to use a remote shutter release (such as that rubber bulb or plunger attached to the shutter release). I would also say using the self-timer would help, but the K1000 doesn't have that. This is so the camera doesn't shake from you pushing the shutter release button. 5) Make sure the lens is clean! Even get one of those lens pens from your local camera shop.
If you have tried all (or most of these) then its time to start looking at your equipment, such as . . . is your shutter getting stuck when exposing, thus lengthening the exposure and making for a blurring shot or do you need glasses? <grin -- which is why I find it really difficult to use manual focus equipement now, because my eye sight is really bad!>
one of the possible cause of the said problem can be a defective or broken flex ribbion cable carrying signal to the focus motor. the replacement of the flex will solve the problem.
othe may be friction in the focus assembly. cleaning of the same will do the job.
but in both the cases you will need the help of repair shop.
