Lens is blurred when you aim to shot


This is a common problem with these camera's. This is either faulty screen or a problem with CCD sensor.In both situations,repair is never recommended as buying a new camera would be cost effective as compared to getting this camera repaired. Try to look at previously saved video's or images, if you still see blurred lines, it would confirm faulty screen unless if the saved video's or images are fine, and this happens only when you try to click a picture, this would confirm faulty CCD sensor.

I wish i could have a better solution.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Pictures are pink


If pictures are pink and blurred shadow-like on all settings, both on LCD and on picture files, then you have a faulty CCD sensor.

The CCD sensor is the device that captures light to generate the digital picture.

Depending on the camera model number the CCD sensor fault is repaired at factory expenses. Call Nikon at the number listed on the owner manual, and find if the fault will be covered by recall.

If pictures are not blurred, but well defined and just kind of purple, then the green or blue channel is not working. In that case diagnosis requires testing to find out where the problem is.

Camera takes pictures with pinkish sheets layers,sometimes melted

Melted shadowed and blurred pinkish pictures are symptom of defective CCD sensor.

The CCD sensor is the devices that captures light to generate picture. In your camera this part is faulty and must be replaced.

Pics out of focus

Sounds like "Camera Shake"

With Digital photography, any motion of the camera will tend to blur the photos. You'll see double edges in some photos, and plain fussy pictures in others.

The sharpest photos come from cameras sitting on stationary objects while the picture is taken.

Depending on how advanced your camera is, there are a couple of settings you can toy with.

One is the ISO setting which mimics the "Film Speed" exposure rating of camera film measured in as ISO100, ISO 200, ISO 300, ISO 400.
The Ratings are a balance between Fast action light capture, and slow higher resolution detail light capture.

ISO100 will make a cyclist passing by look like they're standing still.
ISO400 will make a cyclist passing by look like a blur passing by.

ISO100 will have larger dots of colors on the picture, (Low Resolution)
ISO400 will have tiny dots of colors on the picture, (High Resolution)

So, ISO setting is a matter of getting the best picture without the blur; get as close to ISO 100 as you can.

The other setting is Shutter Speed.

Some cameras will allow you to slow the shutter speed down to help get clearer pictures in dark environments, like places with high ceiling lights, or outside after sunset.

Again you want the fastest option available, here the balance is the same as the ISO, bright clear picture versus dark blurry picture, so you want the shortest shutter speed possible.
This is measured in fractions of a second, and often only the denominator (lower half) is mentioned, like this:
1/8 of a second is called 8 or (125 milisecond)
1/4 of a second is called 4 or (250 miliseconds)
1/2 of a second is called 2 or (500 miliseconds)
1 whole second is called 1 or (1 for one second)

On digital cameras it often simply mentioned as the fraction in a menu called shutter speed. The default is often the fastest capable speed.

Browse the menu options for ISO and Shutter speed to see what modifications you can make.

Remember it's about capturing the light, so bright sunny days are easy highest speed settings, but shady or indoor environments will take practice and fine tuning.
Also, make use of the timer delay option and set the camera on a stationary object to capture the clearest sharpest images.

Have Fun.

All my pictures are either blurred or dark.the flash used to work but it doesnt work any more.i dont know if you can help?

Almost certainly the pictures are dark and blurred because the flash doesn't work. These cameras are not worth repairing, generally, so either just use it in daylight or get another one - and don't buy Sanyo. Canon, HP, Panasonic, Samsung are better.

Cant turn off Blur mode

The camera gets reset to factory settings simply by removing batteries for two minutes.

If that does not work , then the camera is not in 'blur mode' , but has a faulty CCD sensor, that cause this typical effect, picture blurred an like moving, and often a wrong color tone.
