Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Out of Focus

I hope you can help me resolve this. Seems that sometimes when ever I turn the camera on, the image on the LCD screen is out of focus & will remain that way until I either power cycle a few times or remove the batteries for about 5-10 seconds & then turn it on. It can't be the batteries because I have the same problem with new batteries installed. Any idea what may be causing this.

Brightness of the monitor screen changes when a picture is taken, the final picture looks blurr. Is there any solution?


Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera time to lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? If not, the good pictures were just luck.

The overall image is out of focus
If Pan focus is being used, the image may be out of focus; use Auto Focus Mode.
Pan focus uses a focus range of several feet, so the image might be blurry but will be captured faster. This could occur in the EX-Z30, EX-Z40, EX-Z50, EX-Z55 and EX-Z57.
If digital zoom was chosen and the image becomes unclear, only use optical zoom, and move closer.

Check the owners manual; hope this helps.

Kodak P880 camera won't autofocus. I bought a used P880 - seems like an awesome mid-high end camera for someone on a budget. Problem is that it won't autofocus properly. When viewing and pressing down on...


Hi mfkcolumbus,

Did you check the firmware version? If it's not v. 1.02, then get it at the Kodak support site and flash that firmware to your camera. If it is 1.02, then you may try to reflash that same firmware. Sometimes this helps strait'n out things.

Hope this helps.

Pentax k1000 ....lens will not focus...(one 50mm...other 70-210mm)...happened once before...brought to camera store and of course it focused...nothing wrong...took some pics and worked ok...now not...


Try this first.

Set your lens focus to infinity and focus your screen at a far away object (like a distant lampost). If it,s not in focus, then you have a misaligned mirror. Adjust your mirror so that a infinity setting, the split-screen image merge well to form a well focussed image. Hope that helps.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

Blurry screen


Sounds like focus is out. These projectors are like cameras; they have an optic with a focus ring. Try rotating the focus. Some have electronic focus as well. If the manual focus does solve the problem, look through the menu for a focus setting adjustment.

Problem with image


What mode is the camera in? is it in "Auto" at the top there is a dial switch it to auto and press button halfway (shutter button) when you press the button halfway the camera will beep and display a square box on the LCD. If the camera beeps once and the box is orange it could not focus and you need to retry pressing halfway again. When it is in focus it will beep 2 times and it will show a GREEN box. This is the indication it could focus on the subject correctly. Its a machine and sometimes it takes it a bit for it to figure out what your wanting it to do. Its the nature of the unit

Manual Focus Problem


Yup, the Oly C5050 MF leaves a lot to be desired... What I did was to use the AF to get a focus lock then while still holding the shutter half way I would change focusing mode to MF - it will keep the distance value of the AF... Hope this helps...
