Fuzzy/out of focus pictures

The pictures are no longer coming out. All of them are fuzzy and out-of-focus. I have no idea how to fix this issue or if it is even fixable. Please help.

Re: Fuzzy/out of focus pictures

There may be something wrong with the lens (foreign particle got in behind the first lens, since a lens has a few lens), or ther is something wrong with the bayer filter, spinning weel, or any other internal parts that capture the scene.

Re: Fuzzy/out of focus pictures

This may sound kind of obvious, but have you cleaned the lens?

It's common to get finger prints or other marks on lenses, which result in blurred pics.

Why does it take fuzzy pictures some of the time

Fuzzy pictures are usually caused by movement--either your subject or the camera. They can also be caused by the auto focus focusing on the wrong thing. If you upload a picture we could tell you which of these things is happening. Include settings which you can find in the exif files by right clicking the file and choosing properties.

When I take a picture, the camera focuses just fine. But when I'm looking in the viewfinder it looks fuzzy, even if it comes out clear. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

There's a diopter adjustment knob just above and right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder until it comes into focus.

Pictures fuzzy when you look through the viewer.

The viewfinder and the picture lens are totally separate. If it looks fuzzy, and then comes out fuzzy, the capture screen inside needs cleaned. The main lens and viewfinder lenses should be cleaned too.
Get estimates before you say yes to the work. It might be cheaper to buy another camera, unless you can do the work yourself.

All of the pictures taken are very fuzzy no matter what you do

check to see if a flower appears on the screen. If it does then the camera is set to macro and all your pictures except close up will be fuzzy. To switch macro off, move the ring on the front of the camera till the arrow is pointed straight down. I was having the same problem. Wasted a whole day of vacation pictures. That was what fixed my problem and I hope it fixes yours too,

Picture focus problems

make sure there is no flower icon on bottom left corner of screen-very common on sony to hit macro button to turn on by accident and you will get blur-only for extreme closeup-hit flower button to turn off if on and let me know if that was the problem
