Having problems with your HP Photosmart E327 Digital Camera ?

Blurry display after dropping


\015 My wife dropped her E327 and now the display image is blurry when trying to focus for a picture, after taking the picture it is also blurry. Photos taken prior to the drop display normally, so I am assuming that the problem is with the lens. Any help prior to my taking into a shop for a repair estimate would help. All said and done it may be cheaper to just upgrade and buy a new one.\015

I had the same problem. I removed both screws on the side of the camera and the four screws on the bottom. Then open the battery compartment and remove the one screw in there. While the battery compartment is still open and the front slider in the open position, pull the whole front silver faceplate off. The last place that will come off is the narrow section under the wristband holder. Inside you will see the lens with the black holder around it. When mine was dropped this part got stuck towards the front of the camera. I pushed it slightly back into the camera and heard a slight click. Before I reassembled, I put batteries back in and pressed and held the very small lever towards the top of the camera. This lever allows the camera to turn and you can verify that the lens is autoadjusting. When reassembling, make sure the toggle lever at the bottom of the camera is slid into a position that it will line up with the sliding bar on the front faceplate. Reassemble with the battery compartment open and starting with the corner under the wriststrap holder. Hope this fixes the problem.

My Pentax Optio A20 camera display doesn't show true colors, they now have a red-orange tint. It was dropped on the grass yesterday. When I play back the pictures, all of them show up as red-orange on the display, the ones I took before it was dropped and after it was dropped. Everything else works fine on the camera. My brother-in-law says that there may be a reset button to restore factory settings.

Blurry Images Hi, I have a coolpix 5700 and sometimes when I take pictures with it and later go look at them on the camera's display they start out blurry and then "snap" into focus.

Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

Blurry pics The last time I used this camera, most of the pictures came out very blurry. I had to try to hold the camera completely still to keep them reasonably clear. These were just pictures of people, no sports, etc. It was on the usual auto setting. Even the ones that weren't too blurry were very grainy. It has worked fine in the past and I have never dropped it or gotten it more than rained-on wet. What could be the problem?

Sony DSC-S700 when turned on sometimes the screen is blurry and pink toned with blurry grey lines running accross the screen. Photos turn out the same. Happens intermittently.

Checked all the settings in the menu. Not sure why it does this...worried it may be a board problem.

Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think). Image on the display screen is blurry. it WILL take a very blurry picture. there is a faint 'ratcheting" sound when the lens is fully extended. is there a way to 're-set" or calibrate the lens extension setting or focus? thanks very much for your assistance.
