I got my camera for Christmas (couple of days ago) and it was running fine! The focus was amazing etc. Then all of a sudden today, it won't focus. When i half shut the shutter, a noise is created (sounds like an error noise) and won't let me take a photo. It focuses for a tiny second then blurs again. HOWEVER, when I go into live mood it lets me take photos whenever however the focus isn't as good. Please help :(

  • Sadly not, no :( – Kate Howard Dec 28 '18 at 17:51
  • Can you provide some more information? What are you attempting to focus on? Is it a high-contrast subject? How's the light? What focusing mode are you in? What are your other camera settings? Have you tried "reset shooting options"? – mattdm Dec 28 '18 at 18:11

    @xiota All camera makers have units that can malfunction. – Michael C Dec 31 '18 at 3:58
