No change. I guess camera sensor is finished.
tried removing batteries memory card resetting several times. Camera tries and fails to focus. Any other ideas ?
It is possible that the sensor is bad, but it seems more likely, if only distant objects are out of focus, that a lens component is either out of alignment or not moving correctly. While I do not suggest this often, if you decide not to have this unit repaired and are prepared to purchase a new camera, give this one a "wack" on the bottom, with the palm of your hand, with the lens closed, then, one with it open. This may force realign the element.
