Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again. [This problem happens indoor

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black. Tried turning on w/o SD card

I have a Panasonic DMC-FS3 and I'm having some problems with the zoom focus. I will zoom in and the camera is having a problem capturing the picture and focusing it, so it will focus it alittle bit burry. Is there anything I can do?

Hello there, i have a tm700 from panasonic and it seems like the camcorder has some focus or depth of field issues, it always been working good until last week when i turned it on everything is out of focus, i tried geting focus back with auto focusand tried it with focus ring but it just seems impossible. only things that are focus are the things about an inch from the lense and i can get it focused if i zoom in a little... its odd because nothing really hapenned to the camera that could have
Inside the lens assembly, the focusing ring is controlled by electromagnets with feedback from the microprocessor and CCD sensor. Many things can effect the focusing circuit, but the most likely things would be any dirt, dust, or lint obstructing t ... Digital Cameras
Zoom resets/faulty Not sure what happened to my camera, but it has developed a serious zoom error. When i try to zoom in...it zooms itself back to beyond its capabilities then resets at the widest angle. its just about possible to zoom close in small stages, but as you half press the shutter for auto focus... it repeats its resetting process. ? can it be fixed cheaply or is a big hammer in order?

Focus malfunction I have been shooting with my D70 for a little over a year now with absolutely no problems. I shot with it last weekend with no problems. However, yesterady when I took my camera out to use it I realized that my autofocus single area option won't let me change from one focus area point to another. It is stuck on the center focus area. Even stranger when I tested the autofocus on the closest subject mode it is capable of locking on each of the five focus points. Does anybody know
THere is a little switch on the back of the camera, just under the area selection Dpad. Make sure it is not in the 'L' setting. This locks the selected autofocus area. ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera
My Olympus 740 digital camera does not auto focus any more. I can make it focus for the most part by zooming in, but is there anything I can do to make it start up focused? I had another Olympus camera model a few years ago that I had to send in to Olympus 3 times for the same problem.
Take it off manual focus? There may be an "all reset" option in one of the menus that makes the camera factory default whenever its turned on, usually this is full auto mode. If the camera will only focus when the zoom is used, there may be a seconda ... Olympus Digital Cameras
Hi, I have a Samsung PL100. When I turn it on the lens extends and then buzzes for about two seconds, the camera will then not focus (though it will zoom in and out). I have to admit that I have had the zoom unit apart to look for anything obvious, so it may need replacing. Is there any procedure I can use to seat the lenses in the correct position before switching on or can you advise on anywhere that sells these zoom units, as I cannot find any suppliers? Many thanks Steve O.
Unfortunately you have probably already turned your camera to scrap. Optical repairs of that type need specialist equipment, and in practice the tolerances are so fine that the only fix is to replace the entire optical assembly.In your ca ... Digital Cameras
I just found my husbands old Minolta maxxum 5 AF Zoom lens camera. I don't know how to zoom in. I am trying to take close ups of my infant and it appears that I can only zoom in on objects 4 feet away. Anything closer is out of focus. Can someone please give me a brief "how to" on this camera? Thank you
It's not the fault of the camera itself, it's a lens issue. Zoom lenses can only get so close before the min focus is obtained. Unless you have a macro lens (not suited for portraits, which can focus down to mere inches. Most zooms aren't really desi ... Digital Cameras

My Olympus u 750's telescopic zoom is jammed in the extended position. The cause seems to be the last segment of the zoom, containing the lens, which is not properly aligned with the other retractable zoom segments. I don't remember knocking the camera - not sure how this happened. Is this a common problem that can be fixed by gently forcing the crooked segment back into it proper place? Or if it has to be sent for repair, is it worth the trouble and cost?

Nikkor lense I have a AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor ED 18-70mm lense. Up to now it has been good for me. Now I have a problem. When I take indoor shots the lense will not focus in it spins like it is trying to focus but thats all it does is spin back and forth. Sometimes it will take (allow) a picture and the picture is very blurry. I have no idea how this happened. I don't know too much about lenses and this is baffling me, especially since I don't have any trouble shooting or focusing outside. Outside i

I have a Canon Rebel XTi which seems to "lock up" ie will not allow a second picture to be taken after the first when used in "portrait" mode. I was shooting a wedding with it last week and sometimes it would do this and sometimes it was OK. Sometimes it would shoot three or four consequetive pictures. Only turning it off and then back on would start it again. Sometimes even this did not work for more than ten seconds Is this a fault? Why does it only happen sometimes? I'm not sure if it do

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again. Then the screen is blank, shows no picture until i push the play button, or until I change what picture setting it is on. Once the screen shows picture it will not focus anything. Any help here?

Has stopped taking pictures. It will focus and act like it is ready to shoot, but with or without the flash, does not photograph. Everything else seems to be working fine, screen, modes, power, zoom... just won't shoot.
Sounds like the tip of the shutter release button has worn off. It's merely a tiny plastic nib that breaks off quite easily and commonly. Replacement of the shutter button is relatively easy. ... Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera
My Nikon Coolpix 4800 is behaving strangely. In all shooting modes (except landscape, where it automatically zooms in completely and will not zoom out), it works properly. But in all menu modes it switches by itself every couple of seconds between the viewfinder and the screen and it cycles rapidly (with occasional brief pauses) through the menu items. By timing the cycling, I was able to reset it to the factory settings, but that didn't solve anything. Is there some way to reinstall or reboo
