SOURCE: Zoom Problem
There are two components to a camera lense. One adjusts the final lense distance from the CCD imaging chip the other adjusts the distance between the lenses in the assembly (which zooms the image in and out). It sounds like something inside the lense came loose and when you zoom the lense the focal lense is moving with the rest. The lense will probably have to be replaced if it cannot be taken apart. Odds are something is broken inside anyway. This could be something you might be capable of, I have no way of knowing. If you do not think you are up to the task, have a reputable repair shop do it. Cost should not be excessive. I would think less than $100 US plus the cost of the part. Good luck.

Hi Amber, This is an almost epidemic problem with all brands of digital cameras that have extending zoom lenses. I've had Canons hang before and now my Samsung S500 lens is stuck and camera is beeping in error mode (the kids dropping them you know). Continuing to power on the camera may cause further damage, but you have to face the fact that these cameras sell for $99, so sending it in for service of a very delicate lens assembly is probably going to be a tough call. First make sure you have brand new batteries or a full charge. Sometimes it's this simple. If not, maybe it's just hung and you can gently rock the lens extender as you power on the camera. I've had a lot of success with this method. If the camera takes a lot of hits to the lens assembly, it will eventually strip some of the plastic parts driven by the servo motor. At this point, it's all over; you'll get nothing but some clicking noises as the motor tries to extend the lens and the camera starts beeping in error mode. All is not lost. You can always recover your pictures from the memory card by purchasing a USB card reader from most any electronics retailer. As for the camera, you can try to get it serviced. I'd probably opt for a local service center rather than withering into a skeleton while dealing with the manufacturer. If you know someone handy with a miniature screwdriver, there are dozens of this model camera for sale on ebay for $0.99. Many of them power up and are in great condition except for the LCD screen. You could easily take the LCD screen from yours, transplant it and have a working camera again for 20 bucks or so! Good Luck

the filter near at the ccd lens has being damage that way is blurry...there a switch inside at the lens of the camera try to switch it...in other model the switch is equivalent to night mode... it should be sharp when you switch it if nothing happen the ccd image sensor is the problem

I own the same camera, I have had the same problem on and off for years. Here is what the solution is: ON THE TOP OF THE CAMERA THERE ARE A COUPLE OF BUTTONS WHERE THE PLAYBACK IS AND REWIND ETC... YOU WILL ALSO SEE SEE A BUTTON " BLC / MULTI DISP. wHEN YOUR VIEWER IS BLACK PRESS AND HOLD THAT DOWN AND YOUR PICTURE WILL COME BACK UP. I don't know what this feature is for maybe a lousy fade control, but this will bring your picture back in to the viewfinder. Good Luck...
