Question about Nikon Coolpix S51c Digital Camera
I bought a Nikon Coolpix S51about 3 months ago. The camera was working fine, until a few days ago, every picture I take is clear in the center and blurred around the edges. I have no idea why because I didn't change any settings on the camera or drop it or anything. I cleaned the lens, but that didn't change anything. Any suggestions....?

Be sure you can do a pre-focus press on the button, if you press the camera lightly it will focus and then press the rest of the way and it should take your shot. Another issue i have seen is in lower light situations, go ahead and be sure the flash is on, it forces the camera to use a faster shutter speed. Also check to see if your camera has a function for a focus light to be turned on to help it get ready for taking pictures.

Have you tried to change the settings like to scenery or adjusted for lighting that could have an effect. The only time it's blurry for me is when I don't adjust for the picture I am taking. The camera itself focuses so maybe there hasn't been enough time for it to focus. Try those things and if it doesn't work I would take it in to a camera shop maybe it has internal problems.

i have a question for dream3bcop.
the little bar thing worked for me. it was up for some reason, and when i put it down, my focus wasn't fuzzy anymore. so what exactly does this little bar do?

The technically correct solution would be to dis-assemble, clean, re-lubricate and reassemble the lens assembly or better yet, seek repair from a authorized service center or a qualified professional. However, a non-technical workaround maybe possible. This would require thumping the bottom of the camera against the palm of one's hand while powering on. The idea is to jar the lens back into action. Please bear in mind that the opposite could also hold true, the lens would be more stuck.
Another possibility is insufficient power even with new/fresh or fully charged batteries. It maybe that the camera is not receiving sufficient power to engage/retract the lens fully. Possibly, the battery terminals/contacts of the camera has developed a resistive coating of corrosion. Please try:
If problem persists, you need to call Nikon.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The red hand is warning you that the shutter speed is too slow for handholding. Your pictures are coming out blurred because the camera is moving during the relatively lengthy exposure.
Put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and/or use the flash.
