I have a Canon PowerShot S400 and every once in a while the image gets blury and the colors are off. is there something I can do to fix it?

Play around with diffrent settings, try with flash on and off. You can also reset the camera, there should be a reset or initialize option in the settings that will restore the camera to the factory default settings and it should return to normal, if not play around with the settings and try diffrent things to see if it improves.

blury might come from out of focus shot or shaking hands/camera (out of focus also)
I think it comes down the settings and its not a real fault or anything serious.

you can also use a photo edition program picasa has some features, a better one is photoshop. with those programs you should be able to correct color problems, blurry pictures on the other hand would need to be retaken, or if you wish you could edit the picture with a edit program "zoom out" and make the picture smaller so it looks better. But for optimal results retake the picture.

Colors off Something has changed.  In the beginning (years ago) my 4500 got great interior and exterior pictures.  But now the colors are off.  And fooling around with the image in Photoshop doesn't really fix it.  There is an overall underexposure without a flash (indoors and outdoors).  And a tendency to overexposure with a flash (indoors, especially).  And the colors aren't right either.  Although there are a differences between what happens to each color, the general issue is a lack of satur

Canon SD400 I dropped my SD400 and it will turn on, but the shutter will not retract. However, the screen comes on in color and then goes black and says no image. I can access the menu screen while on the picture taking mode. If I move to anything else the camera beeps three times and turns off. What should I do? Can it be fixed? Should I take it somewhere to get it fixed... and where can I take it?

Its very eas to fix this one.. \015\012\015\012just use a small screw driver and open it up.. \015\012\015\012its possible that the gears were just misaligned. \015\012\015\012got mine fixed..  ... Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

Hello. I bought my Powershot SX1 IS in April 2010, and have never felt I could get good photos with it. The 'noise' seems bad, when I playback and zoom in just one notch, definately worse, the more I zoom. The color is often poor, and the focus on close-ups is not sharp. Would you say this is the best this camera can do, or would you say there is something wrong with this particular one. (I always have it set at highest resolution , often 100 ISO, try the set of three exposures to get diffe

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

We have a Fuji S5000 digital camera we really like. However, lately it takes shots that are more like artwork with colors running down the page. I looked it up and it appears to be the image sensor. Where can I get a replacement sensor or the camera fixed What should I expect it to cost as we are debating whether to find a used one or just buy a new camera.

Hi!Yes, it's the image sensor (CCD). For Fujifilm it usually comes together with lens and that makes it quite expensive - about 200$ here. I whink you should get a new one.Tom ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

My Canon Powershot A95 now has the problem described in great detail all over the web...purple screen of death..that indicates a highly probable ccd failure. Fresh batteries and new compact flash card does nothing. Can't remeber exactly when I bought my A95, but probably around 2001, but it has been well cared for but I am questioning if it is worth the hassle to get it fixed or move ahead into something new. Thanks for advice and recommendations

As I recall with mine. I believe my issue was a faulty screen. When I took it to Canon they replaced my screen free of charge and last time I checked it out works fine. With that said, that was still within the repair lifecycle of the camera. The ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white. No matter what setting I turn to, I can not get the image to appear. It had been working fine till a couple of days ago. It has not been dropped. I get the same result when trying to view a picture of a card. Is there any way to reset the camera?

Color Saturation I just upgraded to the Digital Rebel XT, and I noticed that my images (i usually shoot at ISO 100 w/a polarizer) are a little bland in the color saturation department. I have the camera set to Adobe RGB and am using photoshop to process the images (I usually shoot the high-quality JPGs), but I'm frustrated that the only way to get the color to match what I'm truly seeing in front of me is to pump up the saturation levels in Photoshop. I'd like the camera to capture that in the f

I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

Black Screen I turned on my camera a few days ago and the screen is blank, when I take photos thay are also black, but if I scroll through old images I can still see them, have I pressed something on the camera by mistake?

Color Problems I have currently been using a Kodak 14n at my current job and have noticed something rather strange. With every picture I take, the photo has an deep magenta cast. In photoshop 7 I adjust the color either by using autocolor or by manual color adjustment. After getting the color a close as I can, I notice that there are faint sections of color vertically across the picture. One third is slightly green, the middle third is yellow, and the right third is magenta. So basically I have
