Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 Digital Camera ?

I have a Sony Cyber shot DSC-H2. When the shutter button is depressed halfway, it does not focus as it should do. Is there a simple solution to this?


Answers :

I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position.

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.
