We just bought a Nikon coolpix 4000 camera. My partner used a Vivitar screen protector system which has you use a wipe to clean the screen before applying the protector. The wipe smeared the screen and now we don't know what to use to get the smears off. Any ideas? The little cloth they provided just made it worse.

I have a sony cyper-shot digital camera and have been experiencing a blurred screen as soon as the camera has been switched on and this has remained blurred whilst taking photographs. There is also a code that keeps appearing on the screen at random times. The camera has not been dropped or near any liquids of any kind.

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!

I have taken the batteries out several times and that cleared it up one time but has since went back to the white screen. I can still take pictures using the veiw finder but I can not see them on the screen nor can I access any menu functions. The camera still takes awsome pictures so I don't want to just throw it away.

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?

Not Focussing Hi ! I am Vineet from Indore,(M.P.) India I bought a new Olympus C-170 in 2004. Recently I'd been to Chennai and on the beach we took couple of photos with my digicam. But suddenly it locked and the sliding lens cover (On-Off switch) got locked. I immediatly took off the batteries. Later after few hours away from the sea beach, the buttons started working and camera switched on too. Now the images on the screen are blurred, without focus and the photos too are unclear and blurred.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?
