Question about Olympus Accura Zoom 80 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Help!! 10-year old Accura Zoom 80 film camera is taking blurry photos all of a sudden

I've never had any problems with my camera since I purchased it 10 years ago. All of a sudden, in the middle of a roll of film I recently shot, half the photos came out blurry. I read my manual, it said to clean the lens and autofocus windows. I did that. I also opened the empty camera, cleaned off the main lens with an alcohol swab, and blew out any dust with compressed air. Now, without shooting and possibly wasting another roll of 35mm film, is there any way to tell if cleaning everything will fix the problem??? I'm heartbroken at the thought that this beloved camera may no longer work. Any suggestions for equivalent replacement 35mm film point-and-shoot cameras? Thanks for any help or insights anyone can provide.

You should be able to place your hand in front of the auto focus window while looking in front of camera (be careful not to blind yourself with the flash) you should notice the lens moving sightly as if to focus. The best way though is to actually shoot a roll through it. Do not shoot a wedding or anything of real importance...the cost of a roll of film and develop is worth piece of mind.

Cant take picture

First reaction, when your camera acts strange, is to switch it off. Then when the memory access light stops burning, or flashing, you can remove the battery (Batteries) Give it a few seconds, and then reinsert the battery. Now the camera will start from scratch. So if the problem was caused by a software problem, it should be solved.
Only when after switching on, the error reoccurs, you have a bigger problem, that perhaps only can be solved in a photo store, or at the service centre, closest to you.

I have an old Canon 105 zoom sure shot. I want to get the old film out but the battery is dead. I don't want to purchase a new battery. How can I accomplish this? Thank you

If you have a changing bag, you can put the camera inside, open the back, remove the film, and rewind it by hand. You can also do the same in a darkroom (a photographic darkroom, not just a dark room). A good camera store can do it, though you'll probably also have to have the film processed there.

If you have any plans to use the camera in the future, you may as well invest in a battery now. You can take the battery out of the camera and set it aside to preserve the charge.

Your camera will accept a type-M xD card up to a maximum 2GB capacity which will hold hundreds of images.

They're widely available from online retailers such as this one for example, but you can find a retailer more suited to you by simply entering "2GB xD" into your browser search box.

When I push the button to take a photo, the camera

Sounds like a broken gear or linking arm. It will cost as much to fix as to replace. You now have a very nice Minolta paperweight, lol.
Those neat little film cameras are now a thing of the Ebay, LOL. Since many are dumping them for digital, they're quite available at good prices now.

Panoramic pictures??

A panoramic photo on 35mm film is just cutting off the top and bottom. even if you can't set the camera that way, you can ask your local photo store to print any shot that way for you. Usually 2x the price of 4x6.

No picture

it seems that the flex ribbion cable from the camera body to the lense assembly is damaged. A good repairer can replace it.
