Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a VPC-E1075 when i take pictures I get a dark spot on the pictures even if if just view them. I cleaned the outside of the lens with a q-tip still getting the same thing


Answers :

First thing, a q tip just may scratch the lens surface. Always use a special cleaning cloth or material made especially for lens cleaning.

This spot may be internal and not even on the lens. If you look at the lens from the front, you may see something inside, in which case the camera would have to come apart which is not a job you want to tackle. If the lens is taken apart, it will affect the focus and may not work right after that.
This spot may be a speck on the ccd under the lens. If that is the case, unless you want to spend repair cost, it may be better to sell the camera on Ebay as parts, as is for repair.

you may consider a repair, if it is fairly new.
You may want to call the company, if the camera has not had any kind of damage, for warranty possiblity.
Some cameras may have a warranty beyond a year. Worth calling the company and find out.

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5D which I really like. I take a lot of pictures outside with my job. I have a telephoto lens and a regular lense as well. I switch lenses a good bit depending on the shot. Everything was working well until I now get a message that reads "no lens attached" when there is a lense on the camera. The weird thing is that I only get this message on my regular lense and my telephoto lens works fine. I even carried my camera by a local Minolta/Konic dealer and they were baff

Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new

I have a Panasonic Lumix digital camera model DMC-TZ3. It fell into a toilet 8 months ago. I know gross. Fell when the water was still clean.Camera seemed dead. Found it in my garage the other day and stuck the battery in it and it came to life and takes pictures. Problem is that the inside of the lens needs to be cleaned as the water dried inside and left it smudged. Camera shop wants $161.00 to clean it. A new camera of this model is on Amazon for same price. How do I get inside the len

I turn on the camera and the lens pops out, but the screen just says "access" and then "Turn the power off and on again". I do so, and the same thing happens. Repeat. I can still view the pictures on the camera, but can't get past the screen errors to take more pictures. Any advice?

Suddenly the pictures I take with my Lumix DMC-ZS3 have dark, shadowy, relatively circular spots on them. The spots are more noticeable when I zoom in. The spots are always in the same places on my images. This is my favorite camera of all time and I very distressed over this issue. I suspect dust has collected somewhere inside the lens where I can not get at it. I have gently cleaned the outside surface of the lens and have blown it off with compressed air but the problem persists, What c

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry. I changed my lens to a bigger one to see if it was the lens or camera, and it's the camera. I had the same problem with the other lens. I've tried cleaning it & turning the lens focus ring but is still doing it. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

All of a sudden every picture I take with the 55-200 zoom lens is blurry and slightly out of focus. Pictures with the 18-55 lens are still sharp. I have been using that 55-200 lens for years for sports shots, and have never had any problem. I get the same blurriness shooting in both the auto sports setting and in shutter priority. It is a brand new issue. Could it be the AF servos starting to go in the lens, or am I doing something stupid?


Simplest answer is that you may have accidentally flipped the focus switch (A/M) on the lens to M. This turns off autofocus for that lens (which you might need to do if autofocus just can't resolve the image). Try turning it back to A.Ano ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

My casio EX-S880 had that common lens error where it comes out and goes right back in - I purchased a replacement lens on eBay and it worked (came out and camera powered on like normal... only there is no picture.

I have gotten my second replacement lens (thinking the replacement was no good) and it is still doing the same thing.

I have spots on my pics. My camera is still new. I've been extremely careful to not get anything on the lens. Don't see anything visible on the lens, and have also tried cleaning it (very carefully with special lens cleaner). Still, there are spots -- the same place on every pic. Is there anything that I can do? It it possible it's something internal?


Ok those "Spots" are dead "Pixels" in the CCD Element that take or sees the image. What has happened is that certain "Elements" in the CCD have gone faulty, this means that they do NOT react at all, to the light, hence a "Spot" is displayed. If you ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15 Digital Camera

Sounds like dust on the sensor. If this was a DSLR, you would be able to clean it but that's impossible on a point-and-shoot. If the camera is new and you have photographic proof the spots have always been there, you should be able to get a replaceme ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15 Digital Camera

Blurry pictures I have had this camera for a couple years and have taken thousands of pictures with it. I have been very happy until recently most of the pictures are blurry and look like the camera is not focusing properly. I am wondering if it is possible (if not common) for grit to get in the lens mechanism restricting the lens from moving to the fully extended position. I am considering a professional cleaning but don't know the cost/benefit when weighed against just buying a new camera.
