Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions


You still have a bad lens the internal focus gear is out of alignment. or is offset. a repaired or new lens is required. Sorry :( ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Lens Problem I have a C-8080 and I like it but I'm not sure if it is working 100%. The lens barrel is sloppy from side to side and clunks slightly when moving it quickly. It has been that way since it was new. It has some issues with auto focus as well. It has a hard time focusing on clouds and soft objects at infinity. I called Olympus when I bought the camera and mentioned the sloppy lens barrel and they told me that that is the way there made. It is slow to focus when going from close objects


The lens play is normal. The focus is not the fastest, which is a shame because the camera powers up instantly! There are techniques to minimize the focus lag if you choose to keep the camera (e.g. hyperfocal; pre-focus w/manual focus lock). Its a gr ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

Accidentally I dropped my Sony DSC S500 camera. Now the shutter is jammed. When i switch on, the lens ejects out and stops half way. While switching off, the lens doesn't come back to normal position, instead it stops in half way ejected position. From the LED display i could see a blurred image. I am able to see all the photos that i have taken so far, but am not able to take any new photos.

I just turned on the camera to take a picture and noticed that the camera was not focusing. I tried changing the setting, turned of the camera and restarted it, removed the battery and put it back in. Nothing I could think of would make the camera focus. The screen only shows blurry and out of focus. The pictures taken by the camera are blurry and out of focus. Any suggestions on how to fix it? Thank You

Focus failure Hi. I hope you can help. I've a canon 40D and am using it remotely with the EOS utility v 2.3. I am only able to take an image when the live view mode is active. When inactive and I use either the shoot button or the timer, an error flashes up "focus failure". The camera focuses fine in live mode. Have dragged my way through the instruction manual and cannot find a troubleshooting section covering this problem. Hope you can help. Thanks Joe

Bought a 3.5 macro lens.the focus ring does not work manually.This is the second such lens I have gotten(sent the first one back because of same problem).This is not corect is it?It works fine on auto focus however I should be able to focus it by hand if I want shoot different distances correct? By the way the camera is an Evolt 500


Short answer Yes!.. I am wondering if by chance you have the lens switch set to AF rather than M. It would be almot unheard of to not have manual focus, also to have 2 lenses with the same problem. No insult intended, but it sounds more like yo ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Camera takes photos without actually "focusing" on the object. Seems their is no "prefocus" with the button. As soon as you touch the focus button, the camera automatically takes the photo. When the camera was working correctly, you'd push the focus button half way down and then it would do it's job. Now it just takes the shot if you barely even touch the button. Not good...........

I can't find object in dark. Though the camera should identify (may be red ray focus) the object to take snap. In manually I set up all the possible way but in vain. Could you pls. give me a set up solution as I can overcome the trouble?


Yes, the camera does attempt to illuminate the area to allow autofocus, but the darker it is, the harder it is for autofocus to work. This is a problem even with high-end SLRs.\015\012\015\012Usually the center focus point is the strongest and ... Digital Cameras

Kodak v803 Camera was dropped and focus lens moves a little but will not go all the way in or out. Also the view screen is out of fucus and pictures taken show up the same way. What should I do.


Lens is most likely been knocked out of place, that would be the reason why you have out of focus and/or blurry photos. This would also be the reason why you can't retract or extend the lens.Gently pushing on the lens MIGHT fix the camer ... Kodak V803 Digital Camera

I can't get my camera to automatically focus on upclose objects. It always used to work but it now doesn't. A small frame used to come on the screen to give me a chance to auto focus without the zoom.

SD550 camera not focusing correctly. Green focus square sometimes shows up, sometimes not, either way, it's not clear even on the digital screen prior to taking the shot. Camera does make a slight click when turned on/when lens open. Any suggestion?


To make the green square show up just press the shutter button until half (this is called the half press) when the green square shows up then it means that the camera has focused already, if not repeat the process til green square comes out you can p ...

Kodak V1003 A few weeks ago, shortly after I'd taken a pic, the lens refused to retract and the camera switched off. It has never been dropped or had anything spilled on it. Strangely, when I press the button furthest left the camera comes on, allows me to view pictures on the card, set the time etc - everything except take pictures. Again when I try to switch off, the lens does not retract. Does this not suggest a software glitch of some kind?


No, unfortunately that is a problem with the hardware, software would not prevent the lens from retracting.\015\012\015\012If it is within manufacturer's warranty (usually 1 year) take it to any Best Buy they will send it out to the mfg f ... Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera

Many thanks...


Here is a quick fix to try. If you attempted to remove the focus error doing the 3 times on and off, and it didnb't help to this. Power the camera on, you will hear the gear skipping as if it is slipping. Right at the moment you turn of the camera pu ... Fuji FinePix A400 Digital Camera
