Are you in the macro mode? To focus on something closer than about 0.5 meters (1 ft 8 in) you have to be in the macro mode. This will let you get about 1 cm (0.4 in) from the subject. See page 57 of this manual: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/L810_EN.pdf

SOURCE: Blurred purple image

The doe problem go away if you bang on the side of the camera? there is a known issue with the CCD sensor on certin model cameras that after a few years the glue or somthing dries up inside the sensor and it developes a bad connection. Canon has admit they know about this problem and they will fix them free of charge and pay shipping both ways. Sometimes users can bang on the side of the camera and the camera will work properly again but not for very long. I cant see your display so im not sure if thats it or not but the problem has this purple blackish symptom. Go to the canon usa webpage and then search around for your camera model and if there is a known issue it will say on their site. Then there are ways to contact them on their site.

SOURCE: focus/zoom issue with Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 digital camera w/ 12x zoom

This is a symptom commonly listed for DiMAGE cameras listed on EBay for 'parts only'. Dropping the camera I had caused the same problem and carefully 'smacking' the camera once again did solve the problem but that may have been dumb luck. Sorry but it is a service task that may cost more than the camera.

SOURCE: nikon d40 not working and focusing

I have similar problem on my D40. I think there is something mechanical with the camera's shutter button, some connections, I guess... The only solution I've found is to go to Menu > Custom Settings Menu > "AE-L/AF-L" and set to "AF". Now you can focus by AF-L button. Focusing works then perfectly. The WORST thing is that I can't lock exposure now and that's sad :( Maybe I can try to fix this in the camera center later, we'll see. But it takes months in Ukraine to do the fixing... Hate that!

SOURCE: Automatic focus not working

The D40x only autofocuses with the latest AF-S (and old professional AF-I) lenses. Most traditional (screw-type) AF lenses from 1986 through today will not autofocus on the D40x. If your lens says "AF-S," you're fine.
Most lenses sold today for the D40x are AF-S, and so is the included 18-55mm kit lens. Many non-Nikon lenses from Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray, Sigma and anyone other than Nikon still won't autofocus on the D40x. Try before you buy, but honestly, there isn't much the included 18-55mm lens won't do.
Autofocus systems are fast, but not usually instantaneous. You have to hold the shutter down halfway as you compose the first shot so the AF system can focus and lock, and then the camera fires instantaneously when you press the shutter the rest of the way. See Preventing Shutter Delay for more.

SOURCE: hi, my olympus FE-290 suddenly went black.

I just solved the problem. The lens system wire connector to the main pcb was out of this female conector. Only you need its disassemble the camera and in the back of the lcd there's the conector, press it with carefully and test your camera.

BE CAREFULLY WITH THE LCD WIRE WHEN YOU TURN IT.

I just got a Bower Elite series 4.7x Xtreme high definition AF telephoto lens for my Nikon L810. Installed but it won't focus correctly. Does the camera need to be taken off auto focus, if so how?


It's not actually a telephoto lens, it's a telephoto adaptor. I have used something similar, though not this actual model, and only on MF lenses. Have you tried at all focal lengths of the zoom - it may only operate within certain limits. If it happens constantly, then you may need to switch to manual focus.

I'm afraid that you are right about the lens being stuck.
The camera has several checks to make sure the lens can zoom freely in and out. If the camera detects there is a blockage of some kind, the lens will retract and switches of the camera to prevent more damage.
I'm afraid there is nothing you could do to fix it, other than bringing it to a repair shop and have them take a look at it.

Took pics and they have the date displayed on them. Don't want date on pictures. Can I undo the date without losing the pics?


Once the date has been stamped on the pics, they're their just like anything else in the pics. You can use a photo editing program to try to remove them, but it's the same process as trying to remove an unwanted object from any other part of the picture.

Canon A1100is. All pics taken with zoom are out of focus. Pics taken at normal are fine.


I got the same problem. Pics with zoom > ~2.5 for distant targets are out of focus. Pics are normal for close targets (~ 2 m). The camera with zoom is a "short sight". Changing setting to 'infinity' could not solve the problem. I did not find solution yet. It seems a hardware problem. Anybody know how to fix?

I have a nikon 55-200mm lens for the D40X digital camera. The pictures I take are blurred. I use the auto settings. the 18-55mm lens works fine and there are no problems with the picture clarity. Is the...


One of a few things might be happening
1. Photos being taken at high zoom (i.e. 200mm) are susceptible to camera shake, even though the lens is focusing properly. The solution here is use a tripod, zoom out, or steady yourself.
2. Photos being taken without flash when flash should really be used will result in motion blur (which is slightly different than camera shake). This is due to the camera using a longer shutter speed to let more light in, with the side effect being that objects will move while the shutter is open, blurring the picture. The solution here is to use a flash, or take pictures in better light.
3. The camera may be focusing on something other than what you intended.
3. If you are taking photos in good light with a steady hand, and the camera is choosing the correct subject to focus on, then yes, the lens could need readjusted, though this is not a very likely scenario.
If the lens is "hunting" for focus, that could be a sign that something is amiss.
A local camera shop can verify the accuracy of focus for your lens.

If it's anything like my D80 there's no way to do that. Would be nice if there was.
