Picture blurred when i turn on the camcorder the picture is brown fuzzy but yet has a brighter spot where light is( for example if there is a light bulb in the upper right corner)then it has a brighter spot but you cannot recognizeany shapes or details. Samsung has repaired 10 months ago and it is happening all over again. They never told me what was wrong.

It could be a sticky Iris. I haven't has Samsung with this problem but plenty of Sonys. Especially the M7. It's fiddly job to replace and involves a bit of experience not so much in stripping the unit down but putting the devils back together. One test is to film inside a shady room and then, still recording, point the camera at a bright light or window (daylight of course) and whilst doing si tap the camera and see if the picture gets lighter or brighter. Just the gentle shock could be enough to allow the voltage driven iris to open slightly.

Sillygirl Just an FYI in the united states the manufactures warrantee is as follows. if a unit comes in under a warrantee repair, the repaired item is only covered for as long as the original warrantee. I know peeps that got something fixed under warrantee and it went out of warrantee a week later and something else happened to the set like one of the crts went bad that the company had just replaced!! they covered the tube but not the labor. Wow a repair being covered for a year????

Samsung specialize in bad camcorders. It doesn't even have to break usualy in order to give you a fuzzy picture. If it's the same thing I would expect it to still be covered from the last repair. A repair should be covered for a year, but I don't really know what's their policy. Sorry for the anguish, I hope it works out. ;]

    I'm not sure I would get a year on repair either, but on a case like this, I would give them hell if they didn't compensate me.

SOURCE: Can not capture video or picture

A law suit was filed against Samsung for the SC models including your D23. in accordance with the class action settlement, Samsung has agreed to repair or replace the effected models for zero cost including shipping and insurance. visit this website http://www.samsungclassaction.com/7.html or call Samsung repair @ there 1-800 number. Samsung also agreed to refund your money if you paid to have the unit fixed yourself or if you purchaced another camcorder to replace the faulty samsung. I called and they e-mailed me a UPS label to print out and shipping costed nothing. takes about two weeks for the repair and then it will be delivered @ your door like new:)

Black fuzzy spot in pictures

Have you verified that it is in the picture and not the screen by transferring the photos to your computer?


You way have some dust or lint that got on the lens if the photos have that problem.


Just take an eyeglass cloth and spray wither eyeglass cleaner, or just a little dab of alcohol and then wipe the lens clean.

Cannot view camcorder slides on television taking film of holiday but cannot watch on television as all fuzzy

Unless you have an HD (High Definition) camcorder, the resolution of the video (or pictures) taken may be too low for it to show well on a (large) TV screen. Hence, you'll see the videos/pictures as blurred/fuzzy

When i zoom in the picture is all fuzzy

digital zoom is different from optical zoom. when using digital zoom, you have to keep the camera very, very, very still. may even have to use a tripod.

Has fuzzy spots all the way across the screen and just scrolls up

Is the picture fuzzy whether you are waching tv or a dvd or a tape. If it's only fuzzy on tv or dvd or tape then it's the source. If all inputs are fuzzy suspect a bad tv.

Hello Fixya, Thanks for being available in the Net!!! I have a mitsubishi tv model #ws-55809 and the picture is funky.... It's like it's cartooned. The words are fuzzy a bit and so is the skin...

Sounds like a loss of picture resolution. There is a circuit board in your TV that determines the type of signal (HD or standard definition) The video signal (picture signal) is routed thru this board. Call a local Mitsubishi servicer and get a price on replacement. It may cost more than its worth.

Canon Powershot SLR takes fuzzy photos

Guys,
you need additional flash or brighter light to click in low lighting condition. In order to compensate for low light conditions, the shutter goes slow and therefore you get fuzzy pictures.

Another way is to click on movie(video) mode and then atleast you can see them moving around as well as while editing, you could take out some pictures from the video( though on lmuch ower resolution).

Everything on the screen is blurred and fuzzy, the picture comes out the same

well most digital camera's tend to be sensitive for any movement during the auto focus and taking the picture .. depenidng form light (the more light the quicker the camera usually can respond) and eventually a stabelizer programme (shaking hand on a jog dial or a setup option. If the digital camera can use a macro mode check if it is off, otherwhise only the things near the lens will be good and the rest is blurry and fuzy , chaeck if the aparture can be set , for example if the lens is a 1:3.5 use a Apature 4 or 4.5 than image should be sharp , set the camera to auto mode, and believe me even the lightest movement can be fatal..

When Zooming picture it produces blurred or fuzzy picture

This is when zooming through your camera LCD I presume? For small screens usually banding and pixelation is common, if this happens also when the picture is zoomed in on a larger monitor like on your computer then the resolution you set for your camera is low. You can check for the camera setting and increase the resolution from for example 1024x768 to a much higher value and the fuzinnes (blur) will disappear altogether...
