Question about Pentax Optio 430 Digital Camera
I have taken a lot of photos over Christmas, and now when viewing them - all appear blurred and out of focus. On reviewing various photos on my memory card, two at the beginning have perfect clarity, and then the next and from thereonin, all are heartbreakingly distorted. I have tried changing the autofocus from wide angle to spot, and cleaned the auto focus sensors at the front of the camera which helped slightly, but the image created is far from what I was achieving previously. I cannot recall dropping or banging the camera, so am at a loss as to what to do now. Is it time for a new camera, or is there a solution to this? Thankyou in anticipation of anybodys suggestions.

You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."

Cameras dont like drop tests! Check if you are getting the same results on the images- printed or viewed on the computer screen. This will prove whether is is a LCD error or CCD error or Processor error But the remedy will be that same New Camera

Being an SLR camera, you should try another lens. It may be a servo fault in the lens. If the lens is okay, then it can be anything in the lens sensing, lens control drive circuits, and or lens to camera interface area. This would have to be properly diagnosed and serviced.
