Re: out of focus/flashing code
That problem is on the lens assembly...one the two motor is not working properly...sometimes it is a poor connection to the socket of the main board...other is photo sensor of the lens(not the ccd image sensor)or the driver ic of the 2 motor...i suggest you have to go the service center for repairing you camera cause it need to disassemble the camera for doing this....

Your camera has a feature called MF (Manual Focus) if it is switched to MF, the autofocus won\'t work. If on the right side of the screen is MF, you are sure the camera is in that mode. You can change that in Recording Menu 2.

First of all you need a tripod to cut down on the movement . Next use the mode dail and select a nigt setting .
You can even use a shutter speed in Aperature Prioity .Ypu might want to use exposure comp .
This should work for you.
So... there's poor focus, and there's shutter speed.
If the light is very low, the shutter has to stay open for longer to allow enough light in to make a bright picture. Suffice to say, if you move around while the shutter is recording, it will record you moving around, and it will look blurred. That covers the concert you went to. Just use the flash. The camera will know it can use a very fast shutter speed if the flash is going to go off.
As for the person in the background thing... if they are the only blurry thing, then it's the same as above. If not, try this:
Check your camera setup menu... you should have focus options. Most toy cameras have an auto-focus that can focus on multiple points in the shot, or one point only, or even by face recognition these days! Try using a "spot focus", one focus point in the dead-centre of the shot.
On this setting, it shouldn't matter what is going on around your subject, the focus spot will be in the centre, where you are aiming it. =-]
Things to check before you assume it is a mechanical issue-you can get vibration message if flash is disabled, be sure also that the macro mode is not enabled-this is very common on sony cameras to turn on by accident-flower button on camera will put in close up mode and you will get blur make sure no flower is present on lcd screen-if in macro press button on camera w/flower to turn off-also in menu you have continuous and monitor auto focus settings try changing one or the other and see what happens
You don't say which model Digimax you have. Hopefully this will cover most models.
First, make sure the menu is not being displayed on the LCD monitor, otherwise you'll just move around in the menu screen. You must also be in photo record mode, ready to take a picture (not in playback or movie mode).
There is a button (usually on the left side of the direction pad) that looks like a lightning bolt. I can't remember the exact number of times you must press it, but the display should indicate that the flash is turned off as one of the options as you cycle through them.
Depending on your model, the modes are likely to be Auto Flash (bolt with an "A" icon), Auto with Red-eye reduction ("eye" icon), fill flash - always on ("bolt" icon), Slow sync (bolt with an "S" icon), and flash off (bold with a line through it icon).
Also depending on your model, you may not be able to turn the flash off depending on which recording mode you're in. For instance, you can't turn the flash off if you're in the "Backlight" recording mode.

Your problem sounds like a focus problem. Could be that it's on manual focus and you're hitting the sweet spot only in full zoom?
From the manual:
1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode.
2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the
FOCUS is highlighted and then press the
M. FOCUS(MF) will display.
3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down
until the object is in focus.
Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult.
4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ),
press the ENTER button again.
Hope it works out, let us know!
