Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S500 Digital Camera ?

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!
