Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera
The simplest thing which might have gone wrong is that you mistakenly activated the macro function. Try taking a picture of, say, a flower from a few inches: if it's sharp, you're employing the camera's macro function and need to deactivate it.
I don't recall the DSC having a manual focus setting, but check it out. If you turned it on, you need to manually adjust the focus through the zoom control in order to get sharp pictures (or turn on autofocus, of course).
Otherwise, the auto-focusing software might be at fault. There are several autofocus settings available; try cycling them all and see if the problem is reversible.
If not, either the autofocus parameters are gone awry - I'm afraid the camera'll need servicing - or maybe a dirty lens is causing the autofocus to malfunction, in which case cleaning it would solve the problem. Frankly, it's unlikely - it would take a really cleverly positioned and greasy fingerprint to fool a modern focusing engine. But you might be lucky, and it's worth a check.
