1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instrutions.
2. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
If those two suggestions do not work, then I suspect you have a circuit problem. Was the camera ever in a hot or damp situation? Could moisture have condensed inside from bringing a cold camera indoors?
Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.

4. Use the zoom in (one tree) button to advance the number.
5. Repeat steps 3. and 4. to set each value.
6. Press the zoom out (three trees) button until the colon (in the hours:minutes) is flashing. When the colon stops flashing, date and time setting is completed.

What you are experiencing is a phenomenon called camera shake. Camera shake is caused when there isn't enough light for the camera to set a fast shutter speed. The camera's shutter opens and has to stay open for up to several seconds for enough light to hit the CCD to capture the image. Most people cannot hold a camera perfectly still for more then 1/60th of a second.
In addition, when the telephoto feature is used on an Ultra Zoom camera, the field of view becomes smaller. Since a lens with a large focal length provides a small picture area, even slight imperceptible camera movement will cause a blurred picture.
To reduce camera shake, try one or more of the following when applicable:
Change to a fast shutter speed.
Put the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod.
Brace yourself against a tree or wall.
Put the camera in sports mode.
For situations with low light, raise the ISO. (Please note this will impede image quality)
