Blurred image after switching on camera (takes blurred pictures ). Only cure is to slide the sound/film/camera button up and down until I see a clear image in the viewfinder screen. Often unsuccessful...

The four main causes of blurry photos are:
  1. Out Of Focus
  2. The subject moves while the shutter is open
  3. The camera moves while the shutter is open
  4. Depth Of Field is too shallow
About the battery catch, visit some technicia shop to solve it.

Pictures are fine in camera and on computer but blurry when memory card is installed in television

I'm guessing your tv screen is much bigger than the computer screen. You're stretching the pixels past their limit and that's why the picture is blurry. How many megapixels is your camera capable of shooting and do you have your camera set to take the maximum at the finest quality setting?

Is there anyway?

If you take a picture with the camera and take the memory card out of the camera and read it on another computer are the lines and blurry images still there?
