I hate to say it but your camera needs to be serviced. Might not be worth the repair. Try to take it to a local repair center that would offer you a free estimate....

The camera turns on but it is all blurry. And when I turn it off it beeps twice and the lense won't go all the way in.

Sounds like your lens assembly is damaged, it isn't able to twist the lens appropriately in order to fully close it or to focus in on the images you want. You will more than likely need to have the camera serviced. In most cases if it isn't under its warranty it will be a repair ranging close to $100, which is typically the cost of a new camera. Check your date of purchase as camera's come with at least a 1 year manufacturer's warranty, and hopefully you can get set straight.

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

My s860 samsung will not focus the pictures are blurry how do I get it to refocus

Use the following steps one at a time and test the camera after each step. Start with a fully charged battery.

1. Make sure you do not have the focus set to "Macro", usually the graphic for Macro is a tulip symbol. Set it on Auto Focus. If that is not the problem, very carefully clean the lens.

2.Power up the camera and when the lens extends, apply a few drops of commercial lens cleaning fluid to a lens cleaning cloth or lens cleaning tissue (not a facial tissue) and gently rub the lens in a circular direction. Then with a dry lens cloth or tissue carefully dry the lens.

3. Make sure you camera's ISO setting is on Auto ISO.

4. Rest your camera to factory default by going to the Settings menu, selecting "Reset", then select "Yes" in the sub-menu.

If none of these steps work, there is damage or a defect in your camera and you must contact Samsung for repair advice.
