Here is the Cannon website telling about the recall:

Re: The color and the blurry

This is a failure of the CCD or CCD components. This is exactly the sort of behavior cameras on Canon's recall list have. The S1 IS was added to the list.

Lack of definition, blurriness.

Experiment with lowering the "exposure compensation" setting until you get the desired results. Also, don't forget to use a tripod.

Canon Powershot A75. The picture display is blurry.

If picture is blurry but image is not distorted with color shades then camera needs focus adjustment that can be performed in Canon service center. Please check with nearest Canon service center about repair cost and decide to get it repaired or not.

This camera should still be under warranty, so if it's not focussing correctly then let Sony fix it. Before doing so, check that you haven't accidentally left the camera set to macro (close-up focussing) mode.

40 DX - blurry pics

The lens is out of focus or the shutter speed is too slow, to determine if this is a defect or failure, mount the camera on a tripod and use the self timer or remote cable (if you have the remote cable) to take exposures while autofocusing on a neutral colored object such as a beige item,

if they're still blurry then manually focus the camera and try again.

If they are still blurry and your Nikon has a diopter focus adjuster (this is typically in the rear next to the viewfinder where you focus your eye), set the diopter to neutral and manually focus again.

If they are still blurry, remove the lens and using a cloth dampened with high percentage or denatured alcohol, clean off contact rings since this is where the lens and the camera body communicate and transfer focus data.

If they are still blurry, then use the same cleaning method for the contact ring of the camera body.

If they are still blurry use a different lens and repeat the first two steps.

If they are still blurry then you may have a smudged and dirty sensor, this is the part which actually registers the image and should be cleaned by a professional.

If you are so brave to, you can use the cameras feature to lock the mirror and expose the sensor, this is typically only done to perform a dust cleaning using light blasts of clean air and using solvents on the sensor is dangerous.

If you choose to do so anyway, use a bright flashlight and look for anything that appears to be smudging, if it isn't apparent then your camera or lenses are likely in bad need of maintenance.

What are the basic settings I should have the powershot sd 1000 on? My pictures are blurry and the color is not very good.

If you have it on auto the you have no settings. If you have it on manual then you can change the white balance to correct for the colors, also try increasing the ISO, that will give you a quicker shutter and help cut down on bury shots

Player, could you be more specific on the symptoms. Does the image also look blurry on the LCD. Any weird colors? And please reconfirm that you have a Canon SD200 (SD Card) and not an S200 (Compact Flash Card).

Lcd is blery

What you describe may be caused by several different faults. Do the pictures from the camera show the same blurry washed out look? It may be either the aperture is stuck wide open, or the shutter may be similarly stuck open. Can you describe the symptoms further?
