Hi Pat

You need to check some settings first. Is the camera set to Auto mode on the top(it should be for now). If you are inside make sure the flash is popped up. Also make sure that the focus mode is set to Auto. If you are trying to shoot things close up make sure Macro mode is selected, the 945 does sometimes experience focus problems, but only 1 or 2 in every 50 or so. But this is also inhereent of other long zoom digitals, the camera needs to find a difference of contrast in an image.

You must make sure that when you have pressed the shutter button halfway that the green 'oblong' in the centre of the screen turns green before pressing the button all the way down.

Why not check out the 'discussion forum' at www.hp945.com, there are lots of folks there that own the 945 that share tips, ask questions and generally learn more about this great camera.
