    I take it you are talking about the View finder and not the LCD screen?
    If so there is a small wheel to the right side of the view finder which
    change the focus point of the view finder to your eye.

    To set use the Auto focus on a set point around 2 to 6 meters away then
    move the wheel up or down till the view is in focus and all the
    metering spots are clearly visible.

Complete information is lacking.
By viewfinder, are you talking about the LCD or the view finder on the camera?
Something is out of focus in the internal adjustments.
You can try to go to the menus and set all to factory defaults.
Then try it.
If this continues, the camera needs repair.
Here is a link for Canon Repair call the 800 number and ask for the repair dept.
Also Canon has a trade-in program for re-furbished cameras for a reasonable price when you trade in your broken camera.

SOURCE: blured viewfinder

Look at the viewfinder on the camera.

Now look on the LEFT side of the viewfinder; just above the swivel-screen.

You will see a little thumb wheel there.

That is the focus for the viewfinder. Move it up and down to bring the viewfinder into focus. (Don't forget to do this while you are looking through the viewfinder so you can see what you are adjusting.)

Easy fix. :)

SOURCE: No image on viewfinder Nikon D300

You just need to press the play button which is situated above the menu button and simply has a white triangle on it.

Nikon coolpix p60


The viewfinder on the Coolpix P60 appears to be a small monitor that links to the main image sensor that is the same sensor that the lens uses. If the purple is on the images when they have been downloaded from the camera to another device, then the sensor is bad. If it is only on the viewfinder and the rear LCD, then the problem is in the connection from the circuit board to the monitoring devices.

Either way, it is probably cheaper to replace the camera than to have a non-warranty sensor or circuit board replacement.

When switched on, display reads "In synchronized monitor mode"


Cycled through display options, still couldn't get viewfinder image. Checked images already on card, and they showed OK, so screen operating properly. Went back to viewfinder mode, got lots of horizontal lines across screen. Realised I could do no more, so took camera to shop it was bought from, who checked it and said it had an electronic problem that needed professional repair facility, so camera has gone for an estimate of repair cost.

Nikon D40 will not focus


on the right side of the view finder there is a little bar. Make sure it is all the way down. If it is in the up position then it will make the viewfinder, shouldn't make the images blurry though. Also make sure it is in AF not MF (auto focus and manual focus).

Diopter adjustment and viewfinder problem


Hi
I would not attempt to open the camera for any sort of fix. It has weather seals in place and would recommend sending it in to Canon. If you have any warranties left it would void these. Lastly this is a high proformance bit of kit and you want to get is seen to by an Authourised Canon Dealer.

As for the diopter adustment. To be able to see through the view finder and see your subject clearly, take of the lens cap aim the camera and turn the little dial until the screen inside the viewfinder is clear it should not be fuzzy. You are only looking at the screen/gring and not the image beyond. This does not affect your image but does effect how clearly you see your subject through the viewfinder.

Hope this helps

Regards

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...


The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function

Is my canon eos 400d broken?


This is a Digital SLR With SLR cameras you can only use the viewfinder because the image comesi nto the lens and up to the viewfinder via a mirror. When to take a pic the mirror flips up[usually with a crash] and the image goes to the CCD- afterwards you will get an image briefly in the LCD.

Viewfinder Blank but shows information


From your description it would seem that the shutter component in your lens has failed. Although it is a little strange because the two symptoms you describe are not usually seen at the same time. The fuzzy pictures with streaks on them is a result of a shutter that doesn't close properly, the black screen with just the camera system text on it is a symptom of a shutter that is not opening properly. As for what caused the problem - possibly corrosion or contamination. Was the camera exposed to excessive humidity in the time it was unused? The shutter components are extremely delicate and can easily become stuck or sticky. This is what I believe has happened to your camera. It may not have failed completely but it may be sticking open or closed such that it is not performing its intended function. This will require full disassembly by a professional.
