    I had no problems till I changed to vista. My xp still processes my pictures well. The danged vista causes them to be tiled and the tiles are out of placement. Or they will be half and ugly green color and half correct. Or they can be a dark blue or they can have half or 3/4 gray with only some top protiong of the picture actually developed. That **** vista program does it to both my cameras. Both continue to work well with xp.

Color in printed pictures is terrible! All HP

try going into your printers properties and look for a print quality tab. One of the tabs will allow you to change your print style on pictures. Or the HP software that came with the printer should allow you to modify the print quality.

Picture quality terrible on Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

You should be able to adjust the focus by adjusting the lens.The little housing where the lens is should be able spin a bit. If you gently spin it a bit, it should change the sharpness of the image on the screen.

I hope this help you.

Just bought CANON #30 cartridge. print quality terrible

sometimes cartridges are bad brand new right out of the box, if you pull out the cartridge and flip it over there is a spring loaded door you can open to see the drum. If you see streaks or a white powder haze on it, take it back to where you bought it and exchange it.

Just bought 42" Aquos but has bad picture quality in Analog & Digital cable

There is no secret to adjusting the picture settings on this unit. My unit is perfect with Hi Def signal and better with Blu Ray. I assume you are using HDMI cables and have tried a new HDMI cable to eliminate the possibility of a bad cable. If you have done this then the unit has a problem and I would take it back or contact Sharp to get an auth. service center involved.

Fuzzy, cloudy pictures

As basic as it sounds, is the lens dirty? The tiny surfaces of digital cameras' lenses really affect image quality. Also check the image quality setting to ensure you're shooting at a high quality setting.

Picture quality has become terrible

Ed, The shutter on your camera has become stuck open. This causes the lines across your pictures. If you take the camera outside or shoot in bright lighting conditions the pictures will come out over exposed. The fix for this problem requires complete disassembly of the camera to access the shutter assembly inside the lens. It is a fairly common issue due to the fact that the shutter is such a delicate component. Check with your manufacturer for warranty support or recalls. If they are unable to help you for free, there are repair providers which you can find online who will repair your camera for a reasonable rate. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
