Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The pictures have lines through them

I'm not sure what is wrong. When I look through the viewfinder the image is clear and focuses. But when I take the picture, and view it, there are lines running horizontally all the way through the image. I've tried resetting all my settings, and turning the camera on then off. I tried a new battery...nothing works.

    When I view the picture in the viewfinder, there are horizontal lines across the picture. When I take the picture, there are lines on the picture when printed.

I have a Cannon EOS Rebel xsi SLR camera. When I look through the viewfinder the image is blurred. IT worked fine the last time I used it, but this time it is blurred and I haven;t been able to correct...

Two possible situations. It might be that the lens focusing system isn't working. Try focusing by hand (turn the lens manually) If the image moves through a point of sharp focus, then you have a lens or focus motor problem.
More likely, you have improperly adjusted the diopter. There is a small, circular wheel on the right side of the viewfinder, toward the top corner. It is sometimes covered by the rubber viewfinder hood so you might not notice it. This adjusts the diopter correction in the viewfinder and if it's set wrong, nothing will ever look in focus. The pictures would be fine, but since the diopter is a correction for your eyesight, the viewfinder will be out of focus.

When I take a picture, the camera focuses just fine. But when I'm looking in the viewfinder it looks fuzzy, even if it comes out clear. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

There's a diopter adjustment knob just above and right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder until it comes into focus.

Sony Cybershot viewfinder shows vertical lines nothing visible in viewfinder only vertical lines in colors can't get focused picture in viewfinder or picture. Please help!

CCD Imager in your camera is probably defective and needs to be replaced. If the unit is still under warranty, i advised to have sony fixed the issue for you.

Image in viewfinder slightly unfocused, photo clear.

Either your viewfinder needs to be cleaned or your camera needs to be cleaned. Most of the time it is the mirror in the camera that is causing this issue and cleaning it will make everything better.

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully...

Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and the light from the lens goes to the image sensor. So...if the mirror is dirty, the picture will be fine but the viewfinder image will be dark or out of focus.

Canon rebel xt 1. image looks blury in eye

1. The viewfinder's diopter is probably out of focus (doesn't affect Auto Focus of photos). There's a dial and a +/- symbol next to the viewfinder. Turn the dial till you can see clearly through it. Alternative reason: The glass in the viewfinder is dirty/foggy. Use camera cleaning solution (a drop) on a cotton bud to clean it.

2. Malfunction needs Canon Service Centre to take a look at.

Whats wrong with my viewfinder?

Try adjusting the viewfinder diopter. It's a little wheel next to the viewfinder that adjusts to your eyesight.

Whats wrong with my viewfinder?

I don't have my camera with me, so I may be off on the exact placement, and I hope I'm not telling you something you already know and the problem is worse, but on the left side of the viewfinder itself is a tiny dial that adjusts the focus. Just look the the viewfinder and play with the dial to adjust to your eyesight.

Viewfinder focus

Mickykay,
Have you tried focusing the diopter? The focus wheel is just left of the viewer. If you know all this then consider one more thing. There is a plus and minus setting for your eye so roll the wheel slowly to not miss the sweet spot for your vision. goodeye

JVC camcorder with blurred images

It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment: 1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. 2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you. 3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused. Hope this helps. NewMediaMan
