Having problems with your General Electric A950 Digital Camera ?

Hi. I'm looking for a place where I can buy a usb cable for my GE A950 camera. Someone is lending it to me and they can't find the one that came with the camera. I am also having trouble with the focus of the camera. I need to know how to make it focus on the subject that I want. Please help! p.s. this is for a photography class.


Answers :

Hi -

A simple solution for the cable is to buy one at a store like Best Buy, although you might save some $$ by getting it at a large computer store, like MicroCenter or such-like for cheaper. Be sure you have the camera with you so they can match the two USB ends -- the one for your computer is the usual one; for the camera will likely be the smaller one (there are a couple of smaller sizes, which is why it's good to have the camera).

If you aren't able to take the camera with you, try going onto the GE website, search for the camera model, download a specification document that will tell you what size it takes.

As for the focus issue, I don't know about this model specifically, but most all digital cameras will lock onto the object you focus on if you press the shutter-release half-way down. Then, maintaining the half-press, reposition your camera to your liking and then press the rest of the way to take the picture. Focus-and-hold, reposition, press all the way. Might take a little getting used-to, but the skill comes quickly.

Good luck on your photo class. They're great for starting out -- and even for experienced photo enthusiasts as a refresher!

Above all, take lots of pix, and have fun!

Hope this helps!

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.


I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it SOMETIMES works, but then for some reason stops recording images. I have started to always carry a second camera (a point & shoot). However I am enrolled in a number of photography classes in the new year where I need an SLR. Is this camera issue serious or something I can fix? Thanks.

When I tried to zoom either way it would make a whirling sound. I opened my camera to have a tiny little piece, with "C 805" inscribed on it, to fall out.

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 got a new SP800UZ. I have never used a camera, other than point and shoot. Are there "how to videos" or classes I can take? I read the manual and don't even understand the jargon. I'm really in kindergarten here. I signed up for a community ed class on digital photography, but it isn't "how to use your camera". It is more of a "how to get great photos, IF you KNOW HOW to use your camera". Please help!

My Canon SX210 IS is brand new. Just bought it on yesterday. The problem I'm having is that the LCD screen does not look sharp and clear when focusing on a subject. It looks grainy. Can you tell me if I need to adjust the settings on the camera? I was indoors in low lighting, but I've never seen the LCD look this way on a camera. The LCD is always clear and sharp when focusing.


Some cameras display a grainy picture in low light. Do you have the camera set to the highest number of megapixels and fine image or do you have it set to a lower resolution to get more pictures on the card? ... Canon PowerShot SX210 IS Digital Camera

Focusing problems Hello, I have been trying to take close-up pictures (between 4-12 inches away from subject) but when I press the shutter button halfway, on the screen I see the image come into focus, come out of focus, come into focus,.. on and on for several moments until it settles on the out of focus image. I've tried setting the camera to the macro and super macro settings, and that doesn't help at all. I know it can focus, because I see it on the screen but for some reason it chooses the

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off. I am in the process of taking it apart to figure it out but unless it is a problem of the screws needing to be tightened I don't know what to do next. Can you help me or refer me. I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks


The problem you are facing is most likely to be lens related. Perhaps it is not able to extend fully and hence retracing and turning off. The cause may be a mechanical obstruction. However before we try anything else, remove the battery hold for 1 mi ... Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera

Focus malfunction I have been shooting with my D70 for a little over a year now with absolutely no problems. I shot with it last weekend with no problems. However, yesterady when I took my camera out to use it I realized that my autofocus single area option won't let me change from one focus area point to another. It is stuck on the center focus area. Even stranger when I tested the autofocus on the closest subject mode it is capable of locking on each of the five focus points. Does anybody know

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras
