Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.

I just bought a refurbished canon A590 digital 8.0 meg, 4x optical zoom, LCD display screen camera via eBay. after only shooting 40 shots, some of them using flash (like 3 or 4 shots out of 40), i found the camera showed battery used up sign. then, it refused to shoot any more. i checked the voltage of the batteries with my old VOM. the batteries were not used up. the meter read they still had 1.35 out of 1.5 volts. i'm just disappointed that the camera can't use up the rest of the

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

No focus It does not get focused on object. Looks like there is something on lenses inside the camera because when I do wide zoom directed on white paper there are few gray dots visible on the picture.

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?

My Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will no longer focus, especially after using zoom. It displays messages re shutting camera off and on, takes 30 seconds to turn off and sounds like a ticking clock! It is only 3 months old. This is easily the worst digital camera I have ever bought and the Internet shows many people have the same problem with this camera. it should be withdrawn!!


If you mention "ticking clock" sounds, then most probably something like a grain of sand fell into the cogs in the zoom mechanism (been taking pictures on a beach? ;). Dirt gets into the mechanism through the gaps between the zoom barrels and the cam ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera
