I am not sure if its the lens or camera or both. Its very blurry and will not take pics. I have tried everything I can think of. HELP! The camera is only 2 days old!!!

Take off the macro and try it. That will quickly answer the question. But it sounds right.

Please try this...

Take a look at the lens.  There should be a switch labeled AF/ MF.  Make sure the switch is set to AF.  When the camera won't focus or take pictures, it's usually because the lens is set to MF - manual focus.

Did it ever work?  Did anyone play with settings?

 

Go into menu and clear all camera settings. Then switch to green A+ and try.

It worked on day 1. Then the next day it didn't.
Is there a specific button to clear them because I've looked all through menu

Switch to P mode and look under yellow wrench 4.

Cleared. Didn't fix it. Any other suggestions?

No. If you are close to where you purchased go back for exchange maybe. 

 

You could call Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON.

Do you think it's the lens or the camera?
