When I took pictures to get the details of the subject in close up, it was blurry . my camera is canon power shop S51s

I am assuming that you did not set your camera for closeup work, which is why it was out of focus. Try setting for closeup (tulip icon usually) and see if that does not solve the problem. If you did set for closeup it is possible that the lens is dirty or smudged which will cause focus problems when doing close in work. Hope this helps.

When I switch on the camera the LCD screen shows a smudged image at whatever it is pointing at, please advise?

Do you have it set for closeups? Mine has one and it's placement made it easy to hit by accident just pulling it out of the case,

So I shoot all the beautiful pictures, including mule deer, in the wenatchee state forest in the mountain range onyl to find out, when I got home and saw them on a larger screen they appeared blurry and smudged.

How far is the image from you? Try a closeup on a flower, if it clears up you know it's switched.

Otherwise clean the lense with a lens kit.

Can't get the camera to focus ,especually on closeup shots

There is a limit on how close you can get. Check your manual. Also, does your camera have a "macro" mode? That's what you need for close-ups.

What dial do i turn to for closeup (7inch cls up). sp-500uz

I don't know what your camera is but if it's a point and shoot, look for a button with a picture of a flower...that's the symbol for macro (close-up) shooting.

My Jazz JDC25 cannot take closeup pictures without blurring. Is there a button or switch for macro mode that I can't find. Can it even do closeups?

According to the specifications for the camera, the focus range is from 19.62 inches to infinity, so anything closer than this will be progressively more blurred, depending on the distance. The camera has no macro focus options. The specs also say that this is a 0.3MP camera with VGA (640x480) resolution. Unless this is strictly a camera intended for web graphics, its' uses are quite limited anyway and an upgrade may be worth considering. Most modern point and shoot digital cameras have excellent macro abilities at a very reasonable price. To me, this might be worth considering. I like the Olympus lenses for macro work in this catagory and there are several others worth considering as well- Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and Panasonic all offer great options for close-up photography at reasonable prices.

Wish I could give you better news, but am guessing that camera is quite old.

I wanted to take close up pictures so I could sell items on ebay what would be the best settings and any other tips

Get out your owners manual and look for the closeup section. If you don't have a closeup setting, you can always shoot from further back and then crop the pictures. I'm sure you received a picture modification program on a CD with your camera. If you did not there are lots of free photo software on the web. Look for Picasa, Infanview, Photo studio 5, and others.
