I'm not quite sure what you mean by AUTO lens shield. Is it the actual lens lever. In this case you will need to send it in for repair.

If it is the little green box that causes the picture to focus in on this area and make the rest of the picture blurry: Reset the settings wihin the menu.

My lens is all blurry


Question is, Is your lens blurred,or are all your pictures blurred?
If you can see the front of the lens is really dirty, you could try to clean it with a lens pen. One side has a soft brush to remove the dust and perhaps other debris. Please try to remove debris with a little presuerd air. If only smear is left on the lens, you than can use the other end of a lens pen. It has a very soct pad, with wich you than can remeove smear.
If the lens looks ok, please don't touch it.
Perhaps you don't take enough time to let the camera focus on the subject.
When making a picture, press the shutter release button half, till he AE/AF indicater flashes and you hear a beep, then you can press down and make the picture.
If you are making pictures without a steady hand, pictures also can come out blurred. Special when there is little light avalible.
Then choise a higher ISO.
I hope this helps. You still can fine the manual online.

I have a nikon 55-200mm lens for the D40X digital camera. The pictures I take are blurred. I use the auto settings. the 18-55mm lens works fine and there are no problems with the picture clarity. Is the...


One of a few things might be happening
1. Photos being taken at high zoom (i.e. 200mm) are susceptible to camera shake, even though the lens is focusing properly. The solution here is use a tripod, zoom out, or steady yourself.
2. Photos being taken without flash when flash should really be used will result in motion blur (which is slightly different than camera shake). This is due to the camera using a longer shutter speed to let more light in, with the side effect being that objects will move while the shutter is open, blurring the picture. The solution here is to use a flash, or take pictures in better light.
3. The camera may be focusing on something other than what you intended.
3. If you are taking photos in good light with a steady hand, and the camera is choosing the correct subject to focus on, then yes, the lens could need readjusted, though this is not a very likely scenario.
If the lens is "hunting" for focus, that could be a sign that something is amiss.
A local camera shop can verify the accuracy of focus for your lens.

My camera has recently not been focusing, so all the photos are blurred even on Auto, i don't think it has been dropped.


Hi,

I have come across this problem personally.
All I had to do is clean the lens with a microfibre cloth to remove all dust and smudges from the lens.
The smudges caused the lens to be unable to focus on the right object.

Hope this easy fix will work for you as well.

Regards

No setting can cause white spots on the picture, this is a fault.

By the way you can reset settings on this camera to initial state by simply removing and putting back camera batteries.
Alternatively you should have a reset command on camera settings menu.

My opinion is that this is a fault and not a settings problem.

Typically there are three kind of faults that can cause this problem:

1 - Dirty lens or water inside the lens:
The lens may be dirty inside, for example because of water condensation on internal surfaces, this will cause blurred dots or black dots. The lens must be taken apart and cleaned in this case.

2 - Defective CCD sensor.
The CCD sensor is the chip that detects the picture, if you get well defined white or colored spots on picture that is probably a defective CCD. I think this is the more likely in your case. To fix this the sensor must be replaced.

3 - Defective video chip on internal board.
This can cause any kind of problems, however it is quite unlikely.
It is an expensive repair.

Blurring/grainy pictures, and lens error


hi

here are some tips that may be the reason why you are having those blurry, grainy and yellowish pics.

It is important to keep your lens away from excessive heat (i.e., hot car in summertime or a heat source in a home). This will help prevent the greases, used in most lens barrels, from breaking down into an oil that can run inside your lens and cause overexposure by slowing down the diaphragm.

Use rear element lens caps on your lenses when they are not on the body. Wide angle lenses, by design, have rear elements that extend out farther then the lens barrel and are susceptible to wear, which can ruin sharpness.

Always use a filter or lens shade (hood) to protect the front element.

Never, ever, oil your lens. A minute amount of oil on the diaphragm blades will cause them to operate slowly.

hope this helps

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
