Blurry image and photos

The above camera which was only purchased in November last year is only showing a blurred image thru the view finder and no adjustments make any difference. Photos are same. It seems to be over focusing. Any solutions?

Re: blurry image and photos

I had the same issue. Guy at the store thought it was a problem with the ccd. This is a common problem with this camera. Mine was sent back to olympus yesterday for repair.

Have a look at the lens, is there something stuck to it or dirty. If so needs cleaning. I'd try a damp cotton bud. Don't get water in the camera. Use several buds if required. Be Gentle.

I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

Vertical lines and distorted colour on display screen

Just as I got on line to this site I saw your problem being typed in and it's the exact same issue I am having with my Finepix 5000. I've owned it for all of 4 plus years with no problems and really decent photos. I'm getting a blurred image with green/magenta colors when I look through the viewfinder. When I take a photo, it shows the same. It wasn't dropped or even barely touched between the last good photo taken and this. Attached is an example of above description. I would appreciate any advise. See below.7ccd05c.jpg

Blurred image

The viewfinder image should look sharp & clear, as long as the camera is turned ON. If the camera is OFF, the viewfinder image will blur. At least this is how it works on my C2000z. If your viewfinder is always blurry, I would return the camera for exchange.
