Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera
Hi, I have a Samsung S500 Digimax Digital Camera that I absolutely love. Just recently I was taking pictures, turned off my camera and when I powered it up to take another picture, it wont focus. All pictures look blurry, I have tried adjusting the settings and everything and I cant get a clear picture any longer.
When the camera is OUT OF FOCUS, these are the steps that you could try:
1 Power Reset
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera
- When the distance between the camera and the subject is too close,
the strength of the light can cause the picture to overexposed and
be blurred. On the contrary, if the distance is too far,
the beam is too weak to shed enough light on the subject.
Allow yourself enough space between you and your subject.
- If you press the shutter before the flash is fully charged,
the flash will not be able to emit enough light and therefore
the image can be blurred.
4 Surrounding Light
- Use the fill-in flash mode to create a balanced shot when
the surrounding light is very bright.
- Use the backlight control feature when the background
is brighter than the subject.
- Clean the lenses with a smooth piece of cloth.
7 ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction)
- Put in ASR mode to prevent any blur
8 Master Reset
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds for changes to be saved
* If it still does not work, you need to send the camera for repair.
Just contact the Manufacturer so they could tell you how to send camera safely.
