I am not positive but try this. On the side opposite on the screen there is a SMALL switch. Make sure it is pulled all the way down. This is for taking close up pics and movies. If left in the close up mode it will blur your pics and vids. Good luck.
Yep, tried that every which way as soon as the problem showed up. No effect. Behavior is as if it is permanently stuck on the shortest range because the picture is clear when the target is 5-8 inches away.
I've also tried flipping every software switch available and telling the system to reset to factory default - no luck! Pity there isn't a manual focus control (or Macro mode isn't under software control - the macro switch they have looks and feels very mushy and prone to problems)
I've concluded that I'll have to return the unit. Now where did that receipt get to...
PS: Thanks for the suggestions!! But I've been working with software products since MS-DOS 1.1 so I try adjusting *everything* before I start complaining! :-D
