    exactly the same problem

  • BobInUK Oct 04, 2008

    Same camera and same problem, one day it was fine and the next horrible magenta only images with blurring spreading from the bottom of the frame, the rest of the photos on the memory card were still fine when viewed on the camera display still. No changes in the settings including manual shutter and aperture helped. Eventually I tried setting the white balance to "Custom", initially it made no difference and then I notice the normal colours slowly washing down form the top of the frame!! SO - if I turn on and wait a minute then I can still take reasonable quality photos but I suspect things will rapidly degrade if it is the same CCD problem the camera advisory is on about...

Kodakeasy share v1233, Some times when I go to take a picture the screen goes pink and there are lines through the screen, and a Captial AF in brown comes up. It does not do this all the time, but it


Hello Cathy, The "AF" means auto focus, The pink screen and the lines are a camera fault, you are going to need the camera checked to see what the internal problem is, it is not something that you are doing wrong, it is the camera.

I cannot figure put how to correct a blurred image before shooting the pic Help?


Hold the shutter button down half way to automatically adjust the focus.
You should hear a tone and/or see an icon on the screen to tell you it is focussed.
Also, read the instruction manual!

2 problems. I have the Coolpix L100. Sometimes my photos are blurry and also. there is a delay when I snap a photo which isnt good when trying to get action photos.


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

If you take lots of action pictures, you will have to work on a technique of partially pressing the shutter to get focus in anticipation of the shot (perhaps focussing on where the action will occur), then holding it part-pressed until the moment you want to capture. This is really no more of a problem than setting an anticipatory focus on a manual focussing film camera use to be. Some more complex digital cameras will allow you to turn off auto focus and focus manually.

My canon xsi will come out "focused" but when i look through my view finder thing- it is not in focus. do you know what could be wrong?


The viewfinder image focusses onto the ground glass viewfinder screen; your viewfinder image will therefore be out of focus if the screen has moved up or down in relation to where it should be.

Check that the screen is seated properly by removing the lens and looking at the roof of mirror box in the camera body. Usually the screen will have dropped down very slightly and it's held in place by clips to the front and rear. The rear clip is fixed, the front one is a spring clip. Avoid using bare fingers when you manipulate the screen and do not use metal or hard plastic tools on it.

When I take a video, it blurs in and out every 2-3 seconds while I'm recording.


It is probably auto focussing on a moving subject or you are moving the camera making it focus more often.

Black particles on focusingscreen


If the specks are just on your viewfinder focussing screen, they won't be on your pics. If they're on both your pics and focussing screen, you need to find someone else to clean your camera. Cleaning either your CCD sensor or your screen yourself can leave scratches. Changing lenses often can suck dust into the inside if the body is dusty. Try another repair shop for thorough cleaning - it shouldn't cost more than $50.

Blurred Picture in the shooting mode


one of the possible cause of the said problem can be a defective or broken flex ribbion cable carrying signal to the focus motor. the replacement of the flex will solve the problem. othe may be friction in the focus assembly. cleaning of the same will do the job. but in both the cases you will need the help of repair shop.
