There are tiny magnets connected to a ribbon cable, that control the focusing lens. It is possible that it has come slightly ajar, or loose. You can reseat these, but you have to disassemble the camera to do it. The other possibility is that there is a problem with the focusing mechanism (infrared mostly). If the sensor is bad, you have a major repair. Sometimes the ring that the magnets "sit" in can become stuck. In this case, you can try to give the camera a slight tap with the palm of the hand, hoping to free it up. Some people recommend laying the camera on it's back on a towel, and gently hitting the usb compartment, or other surface without switches, to try to free the focusing ring. Here is a web blog about stuck lenses, but some suggestions will possibly help you. This fellow has a lot more expertise than myself:

Oh, if you do elect to have it repaired in case everything else fails, make sure you get an estimate first. These repairs can run more than new cameras on sale. Good luck, hope this helps!

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

Blurry pictures


When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Also try to reset the camera back to factory defaults as there could be a setting that is causing the images to be blurry. To reset the camera - have the camera in shooting mode - go to Menu - left arrow to reset and press ok. Highlight yes and press ok. This will reset the camera back to factory settings. See if this clears up the blurry images.

There is a focus ring around the lens of the WEB cam turn this ring until your image becomes clear, just like a camera focus knob.
Click on the WEB cam software, you will be able to go into an options or configuration, click on video setting, you should see an image of yourself, adjust the focus until the image is clear.

Try resetting camera. If that doesn't work more than likely there is a lens error. 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.

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

Ritz LIED. What u can try doing is resetting the camera.

Press menu
go to setup tab
go up one to reset
press right arrow, highlight reset
press set button in middle of arrows.

Also make sure you are only pressing shutter button half way down and allow time to focus before pressing rest of way down. Can also try changing focus mode from spot to multi. I believe that is under the rec tab in the menu. I think it is called AF AREA. Can't remember for sure.

Try that. If it doesn't work then you will have to send it into casio.
