Having problems with your Kodak Easyshare M580 Digital Camera ?

Compact digital camera; zoom blur images. what am I doingwrong?


Answers :

You may be doing nothing wrong, however the camera is either having trouble with the focusing circuitry/lens assembly, or you're not holding the camera still enough, with a solid focusing object (not likely, but happens). I suspect that some aspect of the focusing circuitry (while zoomed) isn't functioning. While that can be a microprocessor problem, it's rare and not likely. Most likely there is debris (dust, sand) in the lens assembly, and needs to be blown out with compressed air. If that doesn't work, you can try to zoom, then hold the camera with the lens facing up, and bump it gently with the palm of the hand, on an area without switches. The focusing ring inside the lens assembly is sometimes stuck, or jammed by debris, and can be freed by compressed air. Bumping the camera tries to reseat the focusing ring, so that it works correctly, from the cpu signals, and focusing detector. If these suggestions don't work, it will have to be serviced. Make sure you get an estimate first- the cost of repair often exceeds replacement cost of a new camera, on sale. Good luck!

I have a Digital IXUS 750 which until recently was able to download all images from the camera to my PC without a hitch. Immediately the USB link from camera to PC was made the Zoom Browser Ex fired up, the blue light illuminated on the camera and hitting the button and the images downloaded with no probs. Now despite uninstalling, reinstalling and applying canon's latest zoom browser update - nothing. Connecting the USB to Camera link and turning the camera on in the playback mode does nothing

Lens error When I switch on my Exilim Z-500, the zoom extends only half way of what it used to and there's some cracking noise as if something was blocking it. The zoom is at maximum, i.e. when I zoom in further it goes to digital zoom. But when I try to zoom out, it gives me another cracking noise, a lens error message and switches off. I can't take any pictures because the zoom setting seems to be totally messed up. The image is all blurry - at any distance. I partly disassembled the camera a

My Canon S3 IS compact has a viewfinder problem. Upon switching on it always shows the "settings" icons around the viewfinder but the image is not there. I have to turn the camera on and off about 6 to 10 times. The viewfinder image starts to appear dim and blurred. Finally it starts to work OK. It is 2years old and taken about 1000 images.


It sounds like the camera either has a connection for the image that isn't the greatest or the control board needs some work. You could try removing the outer panel and taking a blow dryer to the internal parts but don't let it get too warm and see i ... Digital Cameras

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface
