Half picture is blurry. Can't fix it. Help!

For months now every time i try to take a picture half of the pic comes out blurry. It doesn't matter if I clear the cache in camera app, or set it to widescreen or regular or iso auto ot 100 or 800 or normal, fine or whatever setting there is in HTC evo nothing helps. Finally my bank came out the online deposit but I can't use it because half of the check is blurry.  I thought the lens was scratched up. but i actually sand it down and polished it up with PlastiX and now the lens looks superb clean but didn't help.  Help?!   Attached a pic of what is the problem.

put slight pressure to the lens area itself..see if it came undone. again SLIGHT pressure..if it did come loose you'll most likely hear a click sound when it pops back into place.

There are three components to the camera.   The lens  the circuitry in the device and of course the software.  First is the software up to date.  You should be on version 5.07.  Second as fireguy mention the lens may not be seated correctly this can cause and issue with focus.  Third is the device itself.

If the software is up to date I would suggest taking the phone into a service and repair store so they can look at it .   When you are taking a picture does it look fuzzy prior to taking the picture.  If you take a video do you have the same  problem.

Ok.. so here is something else. If I just let the phone auto focus then 1 side will be blurry... just as before.

But if I manually focus by clicking on the corner that was blurry before than the pic becomes blurry on the other side and what was blurry is now nice and sharp. Explain that.
