Re: Е:61 :00 flashing on screen
check out this site for the mavica FD73 solution.
The problem is the lense focus adjustment motor.
Better explained in the above web site.
The sudden impact of the camera frees up the
adjustment mechanisms. Thus the error: E:61:00
disappears. I just fixed my Sony Mavica MVC FD 73.

My problem is blurry photos. Problem occurs when taking pictures over a few feet away. I have tried manual focus, with no improvement. The pictures are blurry but I don't think it's a focus problem. No...

You haven't switched the camera to "macro" mode by any chance? Flash should eliminate camera shake as the source of the problem. If it isn't macro mode, then it sounds like a fault requiring the repair shop.

My photo's are not sharp and clear. What am I doing wrong?

you could be doing nothing wrong, These cameras have auto focus and when there pas there prime, you need to get them fixed basically.

If the output is out of focus more then likely the auto focus is your issue.

Hope this does help, would be considerate if you do leave a rating or feedback before you go, Thanks

If the camera is in autofocus, it might be hunting focus. This usually happens when you zoom out. You can avoid this by putting your camera in manual focus while zooming out.
Hope this helps!

ebay a parts camera - with a working camera ( most ' as is ' have tape problems ) , get jeweler ' s screwdrivers and take pictures ! as you begin disassembly - so you can put it back together ; a good technician can do the swap in 2 hours from start to testing ( your pictures will be interesting , whether you finish or not ! )

Blurry still pictures

I had the same problem and found this forum.  In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom!  back on to focused pictures.  Hallelujah.

Picture still blurred on record mode

Your problem sounds like a focus problem. Could be that it's on manual focus and you're hitting the sweet spot only in full zoom? From the manual: 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button.  M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus.  Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again. Hope it works out, let us know!
