I would recommend sending it in. the lens is on a motor if it is striped you may not have the part to fix it.

Not Focussing Hi ! I am Vineet from Indore,(M.P.) India I bought a new Olympus C-170 in 2004. Recently I'd been to Chennai and on the beach we took couple of photos with my digicam. But suddenly it locked and the sliding lens cover (On-Off switch) got locked. I immediatly took off the batteries. Later after few hours away from the sea beach, the buttons started working and camera switched on too. Now the images on the screen are blurred, without focus and the photos too are unclear and blurred.

Nikon Coolpix S50 has screwey autofocus when I shoot close-up. I select my subject, center it within my frame, depress the shapsot button half-way in order to initiate the autofocus function... The camera then begins to slide between out-of-focus, to in-focus, then keeps on going to out of focus again, and then slides "back" to an out of focus position! I understand that it is "looking" for the sharpest image as it does this--- but what it consistently selects is NOT the sharpest image! Ide

Focus Problem I recently took the camera apart to fix the zoom. lens would not come out. Fixed it all good now goes in and out smothly. Now the pics are fuzzy out of focus. has auto focus 2' too infinity. Wiped the lenses off while i was in there with a lens cloth from binoculars. Maybe not well enough and it might have a film on it. Would that make the pics fuzzy or out of focus? Or is there something else?


A small amount of dirt on the lens would just produce some flare and redule overall contrast slightly. It wouldn't produce a grossly out of focus image. Either you misaligned something or you messed up the autofocus system somehow.\015\012\015\012Can ... Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital Camera

Dear Sir,I would like to ask you to help me with determination of old Carl Zeiss Jena binocular 15x50. If you send me e-mail adress I can send you photos. I can not find similiar piece 15x50 in the Zeiss binocular list. The binocular has focusing on each eye, there is no central focusing. Can you also help me what was time when the binocular was produced? I think that it was produce in year 1941-because of its serial number. Thank you very much for your help.


Carl Zeiss Jena is East German manufacture, that is why you don't find it in the Zeiss catalogue (it isn't Zeiss). It is also almost certainly post-war, as there was no East Germany before WW2.Carl Zeiss Jena made inexpensive optical equi ... Digital Cameras

My Canon powershot A1100 IS is not focusing at all. The lens extends when turned on, but when it tries to focus (when set to "Auto"), I hear a clicking sound, as if the motor is trying to adjust the lens, but is not. It sounds like a more serious repair and probably not worth fixing. Anybody have any thoughts what this may be and whether to fix or toss? Thanks! A. Nadell
