The camera's firmware will need to be updated. You can sometimes get lucky enough to find a free download on the web. Others have to send in their camera's to the manufacture and they will repair it for $50

Why are my photos out of focus??


Check your settings - try taking sots with the different focus settings and compare. If all photos show some identical signs, you need a fix on your camera. If, for one photo taken with the auto focus settings, look different, you need more practice with your camera.

Hard to pinpoint the exact problem...
What lens do you have attached? Does it have a switch for M/A and M (auto focus/manual focus)? If it does ensure the switch is in the M/A or Auto Focus position.

On the left side of the camera on the face there are 3 positions, C, S, and M. Ensure it is not on "M" for manual.

Do you have your camera setup to only allow the shutter to operate when it is in focus?

My dnex web cam wont clear up what can I do to


Check the cleanliness of the lens first. If it looks reasonable, then try turning the small outer circle around the lens to focus the camera.

If that doesn't work, then the lens may have become loose from the focus function, it'll either need re-attaching somehow or maybe even complete replacement.

Picture not clear


see if the webcam has a turnable ring around the lens, that is the manual focus

if the webcam has auto-focus, this may be controlled by the software that came with the camera - check here, the auto-focus function may have been disabled

Autofcous and manual focus do not work


excuse me if this is a dumb question but you wouldn't believe the things people do...., but in manual mode are you actually manually trying to move the lens? as manual mode means just that you take hold of the lens and turn it. If it wont turn it sounds like the lens is jammed and needs returning/repairing.

if taking hold of the lens and turning it works for manual mode, take the lens off and clean the gold contacts on both the camera and the lens with a pencil erasor this may bring the auto focus back to life, switch back to auto and try again, if not its most likely the lens but take the body to a canon store and try another lens just to double check the body is ok

drop me a line if i can be of further assistance

best of luck
