My Nikon D5000 gives out blurry pictures and the auto focus sometimes does not work. I've sent the lens to be examined & repaired and today I tested it again after being repaired. Today I took a picture of a person standing in front of a wooden fence and instead of focusing on the person (which was my intention), the camera focused on the fence. The result: The fence is sharp but the person is blurry. What causes this? Is it the lens or the body? How can I solve these problems?

I have a nikkor-h 18cm f2.5 lens which is in great condition except that the focusing ring is stiff and takes more hand power than it should to rotate. I want to disassemble it so I can clean and re-lube the threads. So far I have removed the barrel with the tripod adapter and the threaded focusing barrel which rotates inside of it. I now need to remove the barrel that rotates the focusing barrel, the F stop barrel and presetting ring and don't know how it is done. Does anyone know how to

Repair I have a Vivitar 5100/4xzoom. The battery door got broken and I sent it in for repair. They sent it back-finally,unrepaired,& said they needed my phone number so they could call me with estimate...why didn't they just send a postcard? I had to ship it back another time,another $8.00. This was in April. I have heard nothing. Today I tried to call the phone number and was told it wasn't issued.

Lens error I sent in the camera to a certified Nikon repair center that has quoted me a price of $225.00 to repair. It needs a new lens mechanism and some minor adjustments and cleaning.

Bought a 3.5 macro lens.the focus ring does not work manually.This is the second such lens I have gotten(sent the first one back because of same problem).This is not corect is it?It works fine on auto focus however I should be able to focus it by hand if I want shoot different distances correct? By the way the camera is an Evolt 500


Short answer Yes!.. I am wondering if by chance you have the lens switch set to AF rather than M. It would be almot unheard of to not have manual focus, also to have 2 lenses with the same problem. No insult intended, but it sounds more like yo ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Wont Focus I dropped the camera from my tall dresser about 5 feet and now it wont focus. It makes a clicking noise when I try to zoom in. Also when I zoom in it gets dark around the coners of the screen. Can we fix this or do we need to take it in and get it repaired.


If its making a noise when you try to zoom in and out I would suspect physical damage. The more you mess with it the greater the chances of damaging it beyond economic repair. I would take it to the local authorized canon repair shop. ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

I have owned a Canon G9 for a couple years. I dropped it back in May. Lens wouldn't retract. Did research - must get it fixed professionally.

All of a sudden, my Canon Rebel SLR stopped focusing and I cannot depress the shutter button when on AF mode. I can press the shutter button on MF mode, but there is no focusing happening.

Blurry photos I get one crisp clear photo out of about 15. I don't know the reason. I have sent it in twice and they repair it (ya right) and I get the same thing.

When the camera is turned on, the lens vibrates briefly for 4 sec.It doesnt matter if its in Auto or manual focus. It happens while turning off the camera as well. I have sent the camera to the Sony Service center and waiting for a response. Fortunately, its under warranty. Please let me know if is a defect in this model ( Alpha 200 DSLR )


It is likely to be an issue with the auto focus in the lens. You will get the grinding noise even if you switch the camera on in manual focus, but not if you take pictures in manual focus. ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A200K Digital Camera
