Question about Samsung S860 Digital Camera

Blurry pictures on my digital camera

I just bought a Samsung s860 from a friend for $30 and it worked just fine when I bought it. Something happened and now the lens will not even close when I turn it off. Also, when I take a picture they ALL come out blurry. It didn't do this when I first got it, and I don't know what happened!

    Have S860 for 9 months. Took photos till the battery ran out rather than change when showing low. Put fresh recharged in. Image on screen is now blurred and lense originally would not retract back into the case. This eventually resolved itself but image is still blurred and there are two loud beeps everytime I switch off the camera.

I had this same problem. But, I realized that the camera was on "Scene" instead of "Auto". Then, I turned it back to Auto and it worked. Make sure it is on Auto before you take pictures. If it is already on Auto and it is still blurry, then you most likely have something wrong with your lens. If there is something wrong with your lens, it will probably cost a lot more to get it repaired than it will to get it replaced. So your best bet is to just buy a new one. Mine was $80 from amazon.com and it was the cheapest new one I could find. Good luck :]

I think you had problem in lens assy could be the focus motor not function or something stuck between the gear and worm gear most of the time the dust or sand got in same thing for lens cover not shutted in any case it will expensive to repair because it require to replace a new lens assy it might not worth to repair

My Samsung S860 won't even turn on anymore. I changed the batteries but it is still not doing anything. Is there something I should do?


Same thing just happened to us. The green light comes on and the lens opens up but the screen stays blank and it gets stuck here. My daughter barely used this camera - only has taken about 180-200 pictures since she received it as a gift.

My s860 samung camera will only take blurry pictures it was fine one day and the next it would only take blurry pictures


it may have moisture inside that could be the root of the problem,
try removing battery and card and put it in a jar of rice (rice acts as a great desiccant) and leave for a few days the try your cam again,
if problem persists let me know and we'll sure find an answer.

My Samsung S860 will no longer focus and will only take blurry photos. When you press the power button to off, when the lenses retracts, it beeps twice. Is this fixable?


Yes, the problem of your camera still repairable and I hope only adjustment of focus or cleaning of gear inside of the lens.

If you can open your camera and try to adjust the focus gear or clean the gear inside of lens.kindly check alos if the cable is not broken and connected properly.

goodluck and thank you my friend

Blurry pics Samsung S860


Try it with DIS function on.
You take a shot, in average daylight conditions in 11 modes, See which settings give good pictures and use those settings.
Probably the best setting for the digital camera is AUTO(green),for a novice
