blurry pictures

I'm just an amateur with a point and shoot Canon sure shot 35mm "grandma camera" I have usually taken some very good pictures with this, but the last couple of films have come back with the closer subjects blurry, and some of the far backgrond objects sharp. I tried a new battery, and a differant processing place with no better luck, then I tried an 800 speed Kodak film, and the indoor photos were blurry, but the outside shots were fine. Is there anything I could do that would be worth salviging this $100 camera?

doug Nelson   Most point'n shoots have a focus lock feature. See the little square in the middle of your viewfinder? Place that on what you want to be in focus and press the shutter button halfway down. While holding that, re-frame your picture. Some of these little point'n shoots have decent lenses, the Canon in that price range being one.
