I think your camera has a diopter adjustment. If it does, it'll be located on the right side of the eyepiece. It's a small wheel with a + and -. Adjust that until the image is clear.
-or-
It's possible that it is in need of cleaning. If you plan to remove the focusing screen, be exceptionally careful not to scratch it. Has it been subjected to extreme moisture conditions?

Blurred LCD screen = Blurred taken picture


Still I think your CCD or CMOS sensor is damaged. The viewfinder, is just a set of lenses, where you can see through. It has no connection with the sensor. These type of camera's also use the sensor to focus. The sensor needs things with some contrast, where it should focus. But when the sensor is not working correct, the camera can't focus, or take a sharp picture. On your screen you just see what the sensor can record. Nothing more, nothing less.
I don't think it is worth repairing the camera, because this will cost more than you pay for a new camera, with better specs.
Sorry I can't help you with this.

There's a diopter adjustment knob just to the right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder at a blank wall until the numbers in the viewfinder appear sharp. This knob allows the camera to adjust for individual eyesight.

There are 2 possibilities. The viewfinder lenses are dirty or, depending on the model, there is an adjuster, right at the viewfinder, to adjust the focus of the viewfinder. It has NOTHING to do with the picture, only the viewfinder.

All of a sudden everything is out of focus and very blurry, pictures and even through the view finder. we took a few pics tht turned out normal, set the camera down picked it up about 5-10 minutes later...


If the viewfinder is also blurry, it might be as simple as a smudge on the lens. Is the blur uniform and consistent on the pictures and in the viewfinder? Was there a curious dog nearby when you set the camera down?:)
