    This camera has TTl auto focus.
    Ensure you are half pushing shoot button down first to
    activate the auto focus. If you don't do this and just hit the shoot button
    you'll definitely get out of focus shots.
    If the camera had receintly received a shock, or had been in a wet place The lens assembly could
    be damaged, or there can be humidity inside lens
    Point camera at something about three feet away, and try half pushing the shoot button then still holding the button half
    way point the camera at something a long way off. Can you hear the
    mechanism trying to focus and does the picture in the LCD change. If
    it's all quiet and the picture doesn't change then it could be a
    damaged focus motor or a connection to it is broken.

    Are you
    sure the camera isn't switched to Macro. A lot of people get caught
    with that one. You'll never shoot a focussed picture in macro unless
    it's less than a foot or so away.

Hi Dear,

This issue is due to some electrical circuit failure in your camera which is responsible for the flash to work.

Please show it to the nearest service center. And please do not try to fix it on your own as problem might become complex.

Have a nice day.

My camera is showing blurred pictures when taking pictures help


Try reseting all menus to default, then try again to test.
Make sure the lens is clean.
Do the menus appear clear?
Has the camera ever been dropped or had any other damage? This could get the lens out of focus, and would need repair.
Does blurring happen when zooming or when taking a picture of any kind?

Photo card locked and can not take pictures.


There should be a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Merely slide this switch to the other "unlocked" position.
