My girlfirend just got me this camera and I've noticed that it takes fine pictures when the lighting is good. Under low light (i.e. underwater or in the dark) it's not so hot. I don't think there is a fix for that.
Make sure that the camera is not in macro mode. If you look at the camera as you would when taking a photo, there is a switch on the left side that should be in the down position.If it's in the up position, then it can shoot closeups only. This worked for a Vupoint 5 megapixel model DC-WPC. Hope this helps

you say previous pics are ok Just the newer ones. Only a guess but it happens regularly... Makes sure you have not set the camera to MACRO mode as if its not aq close up then a;ll pics will be fuzzy and blurred.
You are not doing anything wrong with your white balance, white balance is very difficult under water, and you should be careful, because your mask might be tinted a certain color, I reccommend leving you white balance normal, then adjusting in photoshop, take a white object down there and hold it over a non important part of the picture, to help with adjusting in photoshop, then crop the object out of the final image. Focusing underwater is difficut as well, as dater distorts light, there is nothing that you can do to keep the water from distorting the light, but if you go to apeture priorities, you can increase your apeture to between f7.2 and f11 to reduce blur (to keep the picture from being too dark and the shutter from being too slow, you can increade your ISO)
It could be the focusing, did you check the focus every time? A slow shutter speed also causes blurry pictures. I know you do use your tripod, but if you don't use the self-timer function or a shutter cable then you are not using the tripod properly. Also, check the front piece of glass in the lens, clean it if it has stains or whatever on it.
Blurness doesn't happens because of the number of the pixels in the cameras. Is the picture on the computer screen blur/the cameras screen or the lens hole?
I suggest you to set the camera on Automatic station (red camera on the wheel) in day light,try to stay still see how blur the photos are when you are not playing with the parameters. it it's still blurry it could be the pulley block next to the -eyepiece. roll it until it's not blur.
This is when zooming through your camera LCD I presume? For small screens usually banding and pixelation is common, if this happens also when the picture is zoomed in on a larger monitor like on your computer then the resolution you set for your camera is low. You can check for the camera setting and increase the resolution from for example 1024x768 to a much higher value and the fuzinnes (blur) will disappear altogether...
Check that you have not got Macro set accidently. If lighting level are low and the camera is selectinging a slow speed - reset to Apeture Priority -setting 'A' and and be very gentle with the release - the slightest movement will blur an image on long exposure. Try these thing and if still introuble come back with more detail
