Samsung NV10 wont focus

by megaaamillions / August 28, 2009 10:09 AM PDT

Hey, i have a Samsung NV10 camera, and recently took a few pictures like normal, and after that the camera screen became all blurry. The focus does not work on any picture, and when i try to focus it is always red instead of green which results in blurry pictures. Also, the power button doesnt work when turning on, but works when turning off... Any ideas what's wrong?

The first thing to do is recharge the battery.

It is not likely that dust got inside the lens, but there could be a fingerprint or smudge on the front of the lens (glass).

Also, check to see if you have the Mode dial set to "Auto"

Make sure that you do not have the camera in macro mode.
When in macro mode, the camera can only focus for about a foot in front of the camera.

If it is not one of those, I suggest you call Samsung Service.

Hmm well im not a complete beginner to cameras, i mean i know the difference between macro and auto... I have taken the camera to several camera stores and they have tried cleaning the lens to no avail, and do not know whats wrong. I have emailed samsung but havent gotten a reply. Shame this had to happen while on vacation. Cameras should last longer than 2 years...jeez samsung Sad

I suggest you telephone Samsung Service rather than email them.

Email is too easy to fall between the cracks.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
