    We are having the same problem with our camera ( Sony Mavica MVC-FD90 Digital Camera). We cleaned the lens. We know to click a little then continue to take picture. The camera was fine until we went on a trip. When we got to where we were going and wanted to take some pics the camera would not focus. It would not and still won't focus in automatic or by manual.

    We are having the blurry problem as well. We have the Sony Mavica MVC-FD90 Digital Camera. The camera was working fine until we tried using it on a trip. The pictures were blurry as well as everything that you could see thru the view window. We tried cleaning the camera and moving the focus from auto to manual. The camera still only took blurry pics with auto and manual. It seems like it will focus or try to focus after playing around with the manual focus.

    I have the same problem. My samsung S630 is blurry. And I got it today. Help would be appreciated. BTW: It is less blured when it is zoomed in though.

Had the same problem but was immediately solved when I used Alloy's solution.When I checked the lens there was an oily fingerprint smear. I cleaned my lens with a really soft dry tissue paper with circular motion. Now my photos are crisp! Thanks

Well, really the first thing to check is the lens for a big shiny fingerprint, or smear. This is very common. Depending on the model, It can be a little tricky to clean. Because some lens assembly drive systems are delicate, I reccommend a trip to your local camera store for the right tools for the job - like a lens pen etc. Clean in circles from the center out very gently as many times as necessary. Little pressure should be required. I do not reccomend everyday liquid lens cleaners in addition. They can leave a 'film' on the front element which you will have to buff away. If there is something stubborn, use Isopropyl alcohol with your cleaning tools instead. 1 or 2 drops is good on the cloth or q-tip not the glass. It is very pure, won't rust anything like water, and evaporates very quickly. If in doubt, let the camera store do it for you. Though you should learn. If not this, you should check the focus mode, or shooting mode. Test different modes in good light. Most cameras do not focus well in low light, might have apparent poor focus at very high ISO's, and might in some modes use a low shutter speed which can result in camera shake (worse the more you are zoomed in). Hope this helps...

I have a Kodak M1033 camera that I bought just over 6 months ago. I took it on holiday it worked fine and then suddenly it switched off. Since then it only powers up for about 5 seconds, shows a unfoc

I'm not sure why this works for me, but I think it's worth a try:

1) First, take your SD card out of the camera.

2) Then turn on your camera and let it turn itself off.

3) Read the next step first and be ready to press the shutter release button (take a picture) right after the LCD screen turns on

4) With the camera lens pointed down towards the floor (aim down), turn on the camera. At this point the LCD screen should not be blurry anymore. Immediately press the shutter release after confirming that the LCD is not blurry. If the camera stays on and you can review the picture (most likely of your feet), then you are almost done.

5) Turn off the camera and re-insert your SD card.

5) This may not be a permanent fix, but point the camera lens downward whenever you turn on the camera. It should work normally if you do this. Mine worked normally (meaning I don't have to point it downward when I turn it on) after doing this several times. Your results may vary.

Black screen in shoot mode

The most common cause of this is a failed image sensor. Usually the playback mode will let you view pictures taken before the issue happened just fine and you will also be able to view the menu system just fine. When viewing the screen in an image taking mode, however, there is typically discolorations, horizontal or vertical lines, image bluring or distortions, or simply a black screen.

This situation, if caused by the image sensor, has to serviced and cannot be fixed by the user. If you are within your one year warranty and no user damage has been done to the camera, the camera will be fixed at no charge. If beyond the 12 month period however the customer may opt to have the unit repaired at a cost or take advantage of the Canon Loyalty Program and upgrade to refurbished S3 IS at an alternate discounted price.

Hope this helps.

The left side of my pictures are blured.

If it's been like that since Day 1, I'd guess either an improperly assembled lens, or a misaligned CCD in the body. Hopefully it's a warranty fix. If it has recently started, it may be due to impact to lens or body. Fingers crossed for the warranty situation.

Blured Pictures

When you sent the camera in did they give you a diagnosis? Even set to macro it shouldn't affect wider angle pictures. My money would be on a fault with the autofocus, sony probably should have replaced the unit. I wouldn't give up on sony though, every cybershot i've used (which quite a few) has always given good results and never had a fault. I agree i've seen plenty of dsc w30's/35's/50's/55's etc models on ebay with breakdown problems of one sort or another, but all manufacturers have problems.
