Blurry images I purchased about a year ago a new Panasonic DMC-TZ4. And up until this point, I was in love with this camera. However, just recently, sometimes when I turn the camera on, the screen is showing images to be out of focus and blurry. All the settings are correct. Some times it stays like this for hours. Other times, I can turn the camera off and then back on and the blurriness goes away. Twice the camera has frozen and I had to take the battery out. And some times when I turn the cam
Sounds like a lens problem. If you've ever let the camera "auto turn-off" as a power-saving measure, any button pushed will turn it back on...even if it's in a case or your pocket. This puts strain on the lens as it tries to come out...result....lens ... Panasonic DMC-TZ4 Digital Camera

HI, I have a Canon Powershot Sd 790 IS and it totally quit working on me so I took it all apart and then put it back together and now it powers on okay, and the lense opens and extends, but the image is blurry. I'm thinking there is a reset somewhere so that the camera knows when it is focused and then stays that way. Am I right or is there another problem? If I'm right, what do I have to do to reset it? Thanks Marty
This is probably a problem with the focusing ring. The focusing ring is inside the lens assembly, and there is a ribbon connector going to the main board. There's a chance that the connector is slightly misaligned, or loose. Another problem co ... Digital Cameras

From what you said, it shouldn't be a lens problem, but even dust, lint, and sand can cause problems. The focusing ring works with an electromagnetic field, and that attracts particles. You can try to spray compressed air into the lens assembly t ... Digital Cameras
