\015 It won't focus and the photo is blurred, What should I do please?\015

Answers :

If the camera is showing a black or distorted screen when set to photo, and photos that are taken with the black screen also show up black or distorted, then this would likely be a CCD imager failure, a common occurrence for your model camera.
If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.Please check this linkfor more info.

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.
