You probably have some moist (grease) on the lens, or the optics has been damaged, i.e. lenses are not longer aligned correctly.
This effect can be obtained by putting some vaseline on the lens, thus spreading the light that falls into the optics.

Camera will not focus


There can be so many issues, but to make sure it has nothing to d with any setting, remove the battery and after you replaced it, set the camera to automatic (green camera logo on the main dial)
then try making a pictures as described in the manual:
position a subject to the middle of the frame, press the shutter release button halfway and wait till the subject in the focus area glows green. (I hope this time it works) then press the shutter complete. If it now works, perhaps it is clear where the camera setting was wrong? Be aware the camera needs a subject with enough contrast and enough light to focus correct.
You also could shoot by taping the part the camera should focus on, on the screen. And because yur camera has so many options to focus, i do advice you to look in the manual and check what modes the camera has. Perhaps in the future you can recognise how or on what the camera want to focus.
I hoop your camera does not have any defect.
success.

Hello, I have a canon A95. I know it's not very valuable in today's tech climate but when I bought it I paid around 250-300 for it. I'd like to salvage it if I can. Repair shops won't give...


This is a sensor problem and to get it repaired would cost you as much as a brand new camera (which would have many more really cool features).

I get eyes that glow white in my pictures


bubba41, You didn't mention using the built-in pop-up flash that's when you get the "red-eye" and you can set the flash for redeye reduction when it's used.  If you are taking an indoor photo without the flash, if the redeye reduction is on turn it off that would eliminate the zombie or X-men eyes you are describing. randy320sgi

My pictures are too bright


How much do you know about your camera settings? Possibly you changed a setting. Try taking photos in full automatic mode.

Focus Problem


I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject may look in focus in the viewfinder, but is not. When you fully depress the shutter in one motion (rather than pressing half way first), the camera will attempt to focus before it takes the shot. If you are not careful about camera movement, you may inadvertently be focusing on something other than what you intended. My camera (and it seems all digicams) has trouble focusing in low light, so you definitely want to use the half press in such situations. Even then, I don't always get the focus correct. Thank the digital Gods for instant feedback! Personally, I almost always use the half press method. To get the 740 in manual focus, you hold the "OK" button down until you see the viewfinder display a focusing scale. It takes a second or so. You should also see "MF" and "AF" designations in the lower left corner of the viewfinder when the scale displays. Use the left and right arrows to select the focus mode you want (i.e. MF or AF), then use the up and down arrows to adjust the focus distance. You'll notice that the area you are focusing on is enlarged when you use the up and down arrows.

Pink lines/dots in pictures


Pointing a digital camera directly at the sun can damage its sensor. You should have the camera checked by a qualified repair facility
