Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera ?

I can't get my camera to automatically focus on upclose objects. It always used to work but it now doesn't. A small frame used to come on the screen to give me a chance to auto focus without the zoom.

Answers :

Try locating the macro button which looks like a small flower. When you press that the camera will focus on close up obejects (usually <1-2 ft).

LCD White-out I have had this Fuji FinePix A350 since Christmas 2006. This August while on vacation and taking quite a few pictures with a new 1GB XD card, the LCD screen would come on with a blank white screen as the camera was turned on. I continued to take photos using the optical viewfinder to frame my pictures, hoping that it was still working even if I couldn't view them. Fortunately, all the photos did come out fine even though some were totally out of focus (focusing was sometimes a prob

Hello, I have been given a very old model of this camera for use in a workshop with street children. The screen is out of focus and all the pictures come out blurry. When I look at the screen without any pictures on it looks like grainy like it is a really bad resolution. Is the camera just too old? It also gives off smoke when the flash goes off! If possible could you get back to me asap. Many thanks, Kate

I was using my Nikon D40 at son's baseball game with the 55-200 mm lens & was too close to the fence when zooming since it tapped the fence. Now it makes a squeaky noise when trying to auto focus.

It's nota problem with the Zoom, but with the autofocus. When it attempts to autofocus, it goes thru the extremes of the le

Focus Problem I recently took the camera apart to fix the zoom. lens would not come out. Fixed it all good now goes in and out smothly. Now the pics are fuzzy out of focus. has auto focus 2' too infinity. Wiped the lenses off while i was in there with a lens cloth from binoculars. Maybe not well enough and it might have a film on it. Would that make the pics fuzzy or out of focus? Or is there something else?
