Having problems with your General Electric A735 Digital Camera ?

When i turn on my camera to take a pic it is blurry but if i zoom the lens all the way close to the object it takes a good pic.


Answers :

Your auto-focus is not working. Inside the camera is a motor that adjusts the lens to focus on an object automatically. It is currently stuck to "close" or near focus. However, it doesn't go far focus. Check the focus functions of you camera - try to use manual focus.

Flash I there a way i can program the camera to take perfect pics without manually adjusting flash. All i need is to shoot at the object and get a clear pics. With this minolta i have to test several shots while adjusting the flash to appropriate exposures before I get a good pic.


What's perfect to you may not be perfect to someone else, That is why this pro grade camera offers so much in the way of adjustments. One doesn't often GET the perfect picture. More often, one must CREATE the perfect picture.. \015\012\01 ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

Camera takes photos without actually "focusing" on the object. Seems their is no "prefocus" with the button. As soon as you touch the focus button, the camera automatically takes the photo. When the camera was working correctly, you'd push the focus button half way down and then it would do it's job. Now it just takes the shot if you barely even touch the button. Not good...........

Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar? Which will also result in removal of the macro setting! Any zooming to get closeup blurs out of focus no matter what I do and that's when still within the optical zoom range.

I just found my husbands old Minolta maxxum 5 AF Zoom lens camera. I don't know how to zoom in. I am trying to take close ups of my infant and it appears that I can only zoom in on objects 4 feet away. Anything closer is out of focus. Can someone please give me a brief "how to" on this camera? Thank you


It's not the fault of the camera itself, it's a lens issue. Zoom lenses can only get so close before the min focus is obtained. Unless you have a macro lens (not suited for portraits, which can focus down to mere inches. Most zooms aren't really desi ... Digital Cameras

A drink was spilled on my camera and now when I turn it on it takes a while for the lens to open all the way. Sometimes I have to force it open. It still will take pictures but if I try to zoom in too much it will freak out and say lens error. Also when i turn it off the lens covers are stuck and will not close. is ther a safe way to clean it?

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture. It is much worse if there is any natural light coming into the picture. I have tried adjusting the flash, the white balance, but the pictures are still coming out this way. Also, if there is a good amount of natural light, you can't see the object you at all, it looks

For several years my C-3020 zoom camera has worked fine. Suddenly, now when I take a picture, the picture leaves when I snap the shutter. Always before the picture remained on the screen so I could see if it was a good take. I can't figure out why it has stopped holding the shot. Any answer for me please?? The way it's working now I have to wait and see if it was a good shot later.


In the camera menu, there should be a setting for "review" to allow you to set the number of seconds the picture remains on the screen. Also, you can always review the pictures you've taken by pressing the review button on the camera...it's usually a ... Olympus Camedia C-3020 Zoom Digital Camera

Toshiba PDR-M700 When I power up the camera, the lens will not come out and sometimes will come out all the way to maximum zoom. When I power off with the lens out, it clicks as if something is stripped or loose. After shut down, I can push the lens back in. Once in a while the camera will work but eventually the "Lens Error" message comes up. This was a good expensive camera when I bought it but taking it in for service would probably cost more than the price of a new camera today. Can you sugg

Canon ixus i7. LCD screen is cracked, and thus does not sdisplay any image, however the camera still zooms, takes pictures, etc Obviously now viewfinder so only way to see what your taking pic of is through the cracked LCD.(whic you can;t as it is pure white with black leak lines of the crack.

Shutter too slow and pics of people blurry. I have the camera on auto setting, push button half way down, focus, then all the way, take the pic. If the subject is moving AT ALL, the pic comes out blurry. There are other settings, but the one I want is the one that will take pics of my kids and not be blurry.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera
