If by out of focus you mean 3d looking with colors skewed or red or blue outlines around letters etc, it is convergence problem.

See attached photo and if it looks anything like your trouble, this is what you have.

How do I set my sl620 to selective focus.


Your camera is a point and shoot. This means the camera does auto focus when you want to make a picture. The focus point is in the square in he middle of the screen. The only thing you can change is when you want to make macro pictures. The camera will try to find a focus point within 2 or 3 feet.
Ion some scenes, the focus will differ just a little, like in sports, it will try to be automatic.
The trick every professional photographer uses, is place the focus point on the part, you want to have in focus in your picture. Then press the shutter release button half and wait till the camera is in focus. Then reframe the picture as you want it to be. Then press the button fully. Just as described on page 31 of the manual.

Blurry pictures


I don't know how much experienced you are with a digital camera. Don't even know you have any experience with any camera. But the modern camera's are capable of taking sharp pictures, is used right.
But to let the camera do its work correct it should be setup correct and used correct.
Let me explain.
Most camera's have a possibility to make pictures in automatic. (dail on the green camera symbol) But still there is more to do.
Every camera has a point (or more points, that are used to focus the picture. You can use to put that point where you want the picture be in focus. Most of the time that would be the centre of the frame. But the camera can't focus in theoretical a blink of an eye. It needs some time, to find the focus by differences in contrast, or patterns. A DSLR sometimes can focus in less then a tenth of a second. Compact camera's could need up to one second, before they are in focus.

So try to setup the camera to automatic. Place the focus marks (as described on page 6 of the manual. Then press the shutter realise button half and look if the camera can focus. If it can't, release the button and try again. When the pictures is in focus, then you can press the button fully.
On page 33 of the manual, there are different modes of focus. be sure you use the mode you chose in the correct way.

link to the manual I refer to.

My d80 wont take pictures in auto,P,S or A modes. Will click in M mode but no picture. What am I doing wrong? Treied to reset, but still does not work.


The camera will not take a picture in P, S, or A if the camera is in Auto Focus mode - and is unable to focus. Make sure that the Auto / Manual focus switch on the camera body AND the lens are BOTH in an Auto Focus mode. A tip off would be that you do not hear the lens focus motor running while trying to find focus.

If you do hear the focus motor, you may not have sufficient light on the subject for the camera to find a contrast "edge". In this case, the focus motor will hunt from where ever it is all the way in one direction, and then all the way in the other - trying to find focus. You'll need to provide more light or if you have the focus assist lamp (on the front of the camera) enabled - make sure your fingers are not blocking it while 1/2 pressing the shutter.

You can take pictures "all day long" in Manual Focus mode regardless of whether the subject is in focus or not. The lower left corner has a green circle or disc that indicates proper focus. Otherwise, a green triangle shape will be visible close by.

More info on Focus is available here. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Pix is dim and too big for screen


Hello
Your TVs focus voltage has some trouble. You gets an out of focus piture now. There may be two reasons for this fault. The first one is, the focus pack trouble. The second one is picture tube base socket trouble. Both are repairable.
Focus pack is integrated with Line Output Transformer [LOT], and picture tube base socket is soldered directly to picture tube base card. You just open the TV and check whether there is any "Shhhh" sound comes from the neck side of the picture tube while tv is working. If it is so, you will get a smell of Ozone gas also. If it is so, switch off the set and unplug it from mains socket, pull out picture tube base card from the picture tube neck. Be gentle, and not make any shakes while pulling it out. The neck part of the picture tube is very thin relative to its other portions of the picture tube, and have a chance to break. So be carefull when you pull it out. You can see the base socket soldered directly to it. There will be two wires also, for some sets only one, attached to it. Normally the red wire going to a slot in the socket is focus wire, through which focus voltage reaches to the relative pin of the picture tube. Just detach the wire out from the socket, desolder it out and go for a similar type, and pin confuguration. Replacing it will solve your problem. After replacing the picture tube socket, a slight focus adjustment may be needed. Sometimes may not. The focus voltage can be adjusted. Its adjustment control is located on the above said [LOT]. There will be two adjustment controls, marked Focus and Screen. Out of which the upper one is for focus adjustment, and the lower one is for screen adjustment as its markings states. You just adjust the focus control very little, while watching the picture on your tv screen. Take menu display for reference, rather than moving pictures for focus adjustment, so that you will get a stationary image for reference.
The second stated trouble is related to the screen-focus pack integrated with the [LOT] itself. If it has got damaged, there is no other way than replacing the [LOT]. If so desolder it out from the circuit board, after detaching the anode cap from the top of the picture tube,and focus and screen wires. Before detaching the anode cap, care must be taken, as there may be some extra high tension voltage charge on the final anode of the picture tube, which is dangerous. You must discharge it before unpluging it, otherwise you may get electric shock from it, even after the Tv is switched off and unpluged from the wall socket. The charge may retain there for hours. So be careful.
If you have any more doubts, inform me through Fixya. Ok.

My automatic focus isnt letting me take pictures.


Check the rear optic on your lens. Then may be dust or debris preventing the focus to lock on your subject.

Taking pictures


This could be due to a jammed lens element preventing the camera from focusing properly. When you push the button the camera attempts to focus the image before it takes the picture. If the focus component in the lens is not moving properly it cannot focus and thus will not take the picture. Do you see the camera attempt to focus the image when you press down the button? If it does not make any noises when you push the button, and the camera does not attempt to focus the image then it is most likely a jammed or malfunctioning focus motor. This would require professional repair.

Can't take picture with monitor off?


When the LCD display is "off" the focus mode is automatically switched to "Single AF" mode (since there is no way for the user to confirm that the proper subject is focused) and unless focus is locked the camera cannot fire. When the camera is in "Continuous AF" Focus mode the camera will take a picture whenever the shutter release button is pressed, wether or not the subject is in focus. You can take a photo with the monitor off, but the camera will have to lock focus before it can fire and will not respond as quickly as with the monitor on.
