Auto Focus Not Working

While taking pictures the other day, the Auto Focusing stopped. I didn't change settings or anything. I tried to reset the camera. I tried turning the camera off and then on again. I changed the batteries. I tried all different settings, i.e. children, portrait, auto, movie. The picture on the LCD sceen is blurry and so are all the pictures I've tried to take. I did not drop the camera, I did not pour water on it. I was just taking pictures of my child and one picture is fine and the photos after that are blurry. I need help before Chistmas. Is there anything that I can do short of throwing my camera against a wall? Please help. Thank you, Mary

Try resetting your camera back to factory defaults. Press the MENU button, select the middle tools tab and scroll down to RESET ALL. Press SET, select OK and press SET. Hope this helps.

Auto focus problem


Well, if all the software is ok, maybe the button is damaged and not able to give the two modes any more. If the camera has done it´s fair share of pictures, maybe it needs some repairs... since you´re the first that I personaly have heard is in this situation.
Mechanical things get broken more easily than we want, I guess. I´d recommend a repair shop for your camera and let us know how you ended up, please.

If you set the camera on "manual", it assumes you focused manually and allows you to press the shutter without having to stop half-way. Check your settings.

My camera is a PowerShot A460. It can take pictures but all white


It looks like you took pictures on Manual mode and didn’t set the Exposure Compensation and Shutter speed properly. If you can get good pictures on Auto mode, your camera is ok.

U might need to change the mode in which u are taking the pics. Try setting it to Auto mode.

Auto focus problem


My first suggestion is to send it back if it is under warranty.

The grease probably got so thick, from the cold, that it caused too much resistance for the auto-focusing mechanism. You probably have damaged the focusing mechanism in the lens. You cannot repair this, yourself. I don't know how cold is too cold but it really shouldn't have done that.... Tamron makes cheap lenses. Try and exchange it for at least a Sigma.

Button-be-dead


Thanks for posting this article as I had no idea of the cause and was suspecting a firmware/software fault. I had the same problem a few days ago. As my camera was out of warranty and the advice from a salesperson in a well known chain of camera shops was to buy a new camera as the repairs would be as expensive, I decided to try and fix it myself. My, somewhat brutal, solution was to use a very thin needle to get around the side of the button and lever it back up again. I did this around the circumference so the button was level again. Since then it has been OK.
