Focus is always somewhat blurry and never sharp. Help!
Hey there -- when using my Quickcam Pro 9000 with my Vista laptop, I'm finding that the focus, both manual and auto, is never sharp - and always blurry. I've continually playing with the controls to rectify this problem, but it doesn't seem to be working. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time.

You did not say which lens or lenses you are using, but most auto-focus lenses have a switch for selecting manual or auto-focus. First, check your camera's menu settings to make sure auto-focus is enabled and then your lens to make sure you did not accidently leave it in the manual focus position? If it is in the auto-focus position and still not taking sharp pictures, switch it to manual and see if you can get it to focus correctly. It is also possible that your auto-focus alignment is out because your camera was bumped, jolted or dropped. If realignment is necessary, you can send the camera and lens to Nikon for repair or find a knowledgeable camera repairman.
If you see that the cam is focus on your end then its them, But if its not focus on your end check the camera lens for any defects, make sure you reboot and save you changes in the program where you are focusing your camera as well, I hope these tips help you, it was my pleasure to serve you today please rate accordenly- Thanks
Do you have Microsoft DirectX 9 or later installed to support your Logitech webcam ? Make sure the USB is 2.0 (enhanced) or you will need a powered hub Does the lens have a focus ring around it you can rotate to sharpen the image ?
Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens that you rotate others rely on the software for a good focal length Launch your Logitech toolbar from the desktop or from 'All programs' Click on the 'Quick Capture' menu (2 photo frames picture) to start your webcam. With the webcam running click on the 'Settings' menu (2 gearwheels picture) Here you can adjust all your settings to achieve the best image
I had same problem - I completely unistalled drivers and software, cleaned registry and installed all again. For complete removing of Logitech drivers I used "Driver Cleaner.NET" (unfortunately it's not freeware). But it solved the problem.
Thanks rcodrix! I had the same problem and it got solved after following your steps.
More details of Step 2 given by rcodrix -
Once u remove the back cover, you will come across the pcb with small chip on it, carefully remove the 4 screws attaching the board to casing. The board also contains the camera lens. Remove the camera casing (small black cuboid..didn't have any writing on it as described by rcodrix though) and turn the lens to adjust the resolution. put evrything back.
To me it sounds as if the driver ya using isnot the best.. try Uninstalling and reinstalling any and ALL software & Drivers. Try another testing program, get Amcap, Google it. OR maybe the Focus ring has been moved? tho thats not gonna fix sound.. OR maybe the camera is going faulty?
