Question about HP Photosmart R817 Digital Camera

1 Answer

All zoom pictures blurry

Hi there - my HP Photosmart R817 has digital zoom, but the camera just will not focus on zoom. I've needed to take pictures on regular (non-zoom), and then use Adobe to zoom in and crop the picture. Any ideas on why the zoom won't focus?

I am sure your lens is clean but from what you describing you have a definte problem with the lens assy which includes the autofocus sensors. Sometimes is can be a faulty focus motor , dirt between sensor and outer lens. Camera needs to be stripped and checked up.

Blurry picture if zoom is used ( no Sharp mage)


I'm out of practice because my camera suddenly stopped working 6 months ago, but I don't recall having a problem with blurry pictures when I used the zoom. Sometimes, it takes a few seconds for a pic to come into clear focus. I think the trick is to just keep working with it.

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry. I changed my lens to a bigger one to see if it was the lens or camera, and...


Try cleaning the lens contacts on the camera body and on the lens.
This maybe the problem, it is not making contact with the lens zoom motor.

New computer with windows 7 will not allow run install disk for R817 digital camera


You don't need any special software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Camera takes pictures very slowly thus they always come out blurry. I have the megapixel settings on their lowest and even with action settings on they are still blurry is there anything I can do?


You're supposed to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to focus (it will beep) then press the rest of the way. Do you do that? Do you unconsciously move when snapping the picture? You should not set your camera to the lowest megapixel rating...the picture quality will suffer. Try setting your ISO to a faster speed.

Blurry


It's probably stuck on the macro setting (flower icon on the front of the unit) so it will only focus close to things. Try sliding it to the mountain icon for regular pictures.
