Digital camera taking blurry pictures

I have a Sony Cyber-shot 4.1 megapixel camera that's a couple years old now. It's always worked great, but lately all the pictures it takes have horrible motion blur. Even still objects blur. I've tried cleaning the lens, it's not dirty or scratched. I looked through the menu to see if it was some sort of special effect I accidentally turned on. I don't know what else to do. I can't afford a new camera right now. Any ideas?

Nope. Not adjustable. The batteries are full. The lens is clean, scratch free...I don't get it. My camera worked fine just a week ago. Nothing bad happened to it, it just started getting blurry for no reason. No water spilled on it or dropping it. Wierd that it would just suddenly get blurry.

check your user manual for image stabalization settings, if that's not the problem than check for the option of reverting all the setting to the original factory setting. Probably pressed one of the buttons by accident and messed up a setting. do you have a tripod? do you use flash?

Another thought.... what kind of batteries? I had a camera that did that with some brand of batteries and not others.... from the way you worded it , sounds like they might be rechargable.... could be that you need a new battery/battery pack... Do you have spares? Do you have a shop near you that will test your batteries for you? WE have a place here called batteries plus that will check/recondition batteries for a resonable fee....
