It is possible that the camera is recognising the image with error on the detection sensors, this feedbacck or the corresponding correction circuit inthe maiin controller in the camera is having an error.
Try to see if there is any dirt in the lens and use a good lens cleaner to wipe off any dirt that might be stuck on.
Remove battery and keep aside, tap on the lens hood softy with the palm capped on the lens hood so as to disengage any dirt within the mechanism. .
Now replace the battery and check , if the fault is still evident , try and use a manual mode , the camera is set to auto, choose also a diffferent picture setting.Remove memory card and try, if fault clears format memory card.
If none of these settings worked, it will be neccessary to open the camera for investigation but I would advice that this work be reffered to the HP service centre closest- call the toll free ask and send after receiving a confirmation - get an estimate and proceed.
This is because even if we identify the controller or the image sensor/CCD, it will become neccesssary to get the part from the dealer, hence it will prevent further tampering of the camera.
Hope this advice helps

Camera takes blurry pictures up close and sharper ones from afar. Camera will not focus on specific object either.


There is a "close focus" limit, depending on your lens. The standard "kit lens" won't focus closer than about 2 feet away. Check that the switch on the lens is set to "AF" not "MF" "MF" means, "manual focus".
When you lightly press the shutter button, the viewfinder should blink with little dots/squares indicating what it focused on, and beep. If it doesn't, and you are set for "AF", then your camera needs repair.

I own a Nikon D5000 and am experiencing issues with the 55x200 lens. When trying to take a picture (on auto mode) of an item that is too close, I am hearing a squeaky noise (like the noise made my a VCR...


The 55-200mm lens does not focus closer than 1.1 meters (3.6 feet). If the subject is too close, then the autofocus tries and fails to focus or keeps trying (and squeaking). Either way, you won't be able to take a picture. In manual focus, you can take a picture but it will be out of focus and blurry.

Every lens has a minimum focus distance, closer than which it will not focus. Some lenses focus closer than others. It's a matter of design; making lenses focus closer makes them larger, heavier, and more expensive.

If you want to take close-ups, you have several options. You can buy close-up adapters that fit onto the front of a lens. You can buy a special close-up lens ("macro" or "micro" lens). You can buy extension tubes to fit between the camera and a lens.

Picture are out of focus Is lens housing suppost


There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB socket. Make sure it's in the proper position. The flower position is for taking pictures of objects close to the camera, the mountain position is for other pictures.

Well I got a used tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens and I was told It has BIM so it can focus on my d3100 and well.. idk how to turn on the af? just a simple question


Nice lens, there should be a switch on the lens barrel fitted close to the camera body when the lens is mounted. It's between the 50 and 60mm focal length markings I'm going to add a picture but not sure how well it will show up. Also the newer Nikon's have some tricky auto focus motor that's fussy to what lens it's capable on auto focusing here is the picture. Happy New yeartri3mast_50.jpg

Where is the macro setting?


There isn't one. To take macro pictures you can use a macro lens, use extension tubes, use a bellows unit, or use other close-focusing gear. It's the lens that controls how close you can focus, not the camera.

If you'd like any more information, please feel free to ask.

Pictures are appear blurry when reviewing them. I focus the camera object appears clear after I snap the picture it becomes blurry as it is being save for review.


Question : Why are my pictures out of focus (blurry)? Answer : This problem can occur for one or more reasons. Here are some common causes and suggested solutions.
  • The lens is dirty. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt. Wipe the lens gently with a soft, lint-free cloth or an untreated lens-cleaning tissue. Do not use cleaning solution unless it is designed specifically for camera lenses.
  • The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera has a recommended distance for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures.
  • The subject was not within the effective range of the flash. Each camera has an effective flash range.
  • The camera did not focus or expose the picture correctly. For the best possible pictures, press the shutter button halfway and hold. When the Ready light or framing marks turn green, press the shutter button completely down to take the picture.
  • The LCD screen Preview feature was not used to take a picture in Close-Up mode. Always use the Preview feature in Close-Up mode to confirm focus and to frame the subject properly. If the Preview feature is not used, the LCD will not display an accurate view of the subject.
  • The subject or camera moved. Hold the camera very steady when taking a picture, or place the camera on a flat, stable surface. You may want to consider using a tripod or monopod.

Canon rebel xti focus issues


I think it might be a lens issue.
make sure you change the macro option. the macro must be activated if you are taking a picture of something which is close to the camera. if it's not activated, the picture will not be focused.
The same will happen if the item is far and the macro is ON.

Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.

The batteries need to be changed. The digital batteries sold at the stores die out too fast. I had this same problem. In result, I purchased rechargeable battieries.
