\015 I just got this camera today for christmas and I charged the battery and put it in right and also put a new XD olympus card in correct and when I turn it on there is just like white blobs across the screen and it is making little noises like it is trying to focus. It wont focus on anything and Im not sure what to do. ( I also tried putting in the picture card it came with, and it does the same thing). Any help?\015

Answers :

Dear Hokiefootball,

Merry Christmas to you,
Have you Check your Macro and SuperMacro setting whether its turn on or not. The function is for closed up shooting. The sound is from the motorized elements and mechanism in the camera for focusing and shutter adjustment, it is normal. Direct your camera to any object and try to press half-shutter until the target become green. Good Luck

Auto focus no longer works. Every time I turn the camera on, I get the ''Please turn camera off and then on again message''. When I do that, it can focus in the default lens position, but as soon as I move the lens, it is not able to focus. Battery is fully charged. All settings were reset to default. Formatted SD, and upgraded to V1.2 software. Still no help.

Hello there, My Samsung ES55 recently stopped working completely (not turning on) for no apparent reason. I had been taking lots of photos, 153 to be exact, and then it just didn't work. It was still under warranty and when I got it back from the camera shop, they told me it had been dropped - which it hadn't - and whilst it was now working, they would guaruntee it any more. Now the camera works but the images are often blurred. I think it might be an auto-focus problem. When I try and tak

Hi, I've a Sigma 28-105mm aspherical 3.5-5.6 lens. Auto focus does not engage. I can hear the motor trying, but the ring does not turn. When I switch to manual focus, I can turn the ring to focus manually, but I still hear the motor trying to use autofocus. Additionally, sometimes the shutter will not fire in manual focus while the motor is still searching. I've cleaned the contacts, but no joy. I suspect a faulty switch, but that doesn't completely explain the autofocus not engaging. I am

Is there any way I can get my camera back to normal! I turned it on and it said "focus error". When I shut it off to see if it would start over correctly it would not close the lens. I turned it on and the lens closed and then opened again and wouldn't focus. I turned it off and the lens won't shut. How weird is that? It obviously is capable of opening and closing but seems to be reversed and makes a funny noise when it can't shut at the right time. Can I wiggle or giggle something? I bo
