hi all , i saw 2 or 3 threads about this problem (Blurry Images and always in Macro Focus Mode !) but there isnt any good answers !
i live in iran and in a Rainy Day when im out i saw that my gear 2 camera is stuck in macro mode i've tried restoring , opening it up and disconnect and reconnect the cables , shaking it hardly ! , etc. but nothing changed !
also today i called the samsung service center in Tehran and they said : "Currently we dont support Gear 2 and Gear2 Neo !".

have you considered it might be a hardware malfunction?

I actually was able to duplicate this issue. My first watch was doing this out of the box and I tapped it on the table and it started to work. I then took it to bb and got a replacement.

I have had the replacement about a week and went to replace the watch band and dropped the watch body on the floor from about a foot. When I got everything back together and went to shoot a few pics it wouldn't focus. Again another tap on the floor and it started working again. I think the cameras are really lose in the body. Contemplating weather or not to return it and get yet another one.

Im not going to tap it again for fear of doing irreparable damage. I just lightly tapped the side of the watch on the floor.

WoW nice !!!!!
i can't believe my camera started working now !
I'm just put it on the bed on my pillow and tap it on the side with my hand and open up the camera and .... nice !
you better do this trick (put it on the soft material) because floor might scratch the side of your watch or maybe break it !

Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:l augh:
