The most likely cause (if the lens is clean) is that the focusing ring has jammed or is sticking due to dust, or it has become dislodged, and isn't moving. The focusing ring has tiny electromagnets on it, and it rotates as signals from the microprocessor control it. You can try a couple of things to fix it. First thing, is to spray some compressed air into the front lens area. This will often dislodge any dirt or sand that may have worked it's way inside. If that doesn't help, lay the camera on a towel or soft cloth, on the LCD side, with the lens facing up. Hold the camera firmly, and tap it gently with your palm of your hand somewhere where there aren't any switches. What we're hoping for here, is to jar the focusing ring, and make it reseat itself. Try it 2 or 3 times, then take a pictures, and check to see if the focus is restored. This method seems to work about 50% of the time, but if it doesn't, service will be required. There is a possibility that the ribbon connector from the focusing ring to the cpu board has become slightly ajar, and to reseat it, the camera will have to be disassembled. The lens assembly can be expensive to fix, laborwise, so make sure you get an estimate before having it serviced, if all else fails. Sometimes the cost of a new camera on sale is less than the cost of repair. Good luck, hope this helps.

Most pictures that I take with my Canon powershot SD 1200is, come out blurry.

Try pressing the shutter button halfway before you take your picture. This opens the lens for exposure and also triggers autofocus based on your camera settings. Once you do that and aim your camera properly, you can press the button all the way to take a photo.

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"

I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.

My Canon Power Shot SD 630 Digital Elph

When was the last time that you replaced your rechargeable battery? It was only meant to last a couple years, regardless of the amount of its use. If the battery is old, a generic replacement is relatively inexpensive these days. Look for those rated 4 or 5 stars:
