How do I clean the dust off the sensor on my Canon Powershot SD1100IS Is there a tutorial that shows the step by step process to take the camera apart and get to the sensor?

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u

Hi I am soooo annoyed with my camera, I want to download images from my Olympus FE-120 to my pc, but I cant get my camera to go into 'pc' mode, so I get an error message saying the Olympus software cant find my camera. It did it ok yesterday!!! I know from looking that people seem to say get a card, but I need to do this urgently. Any help very much appreciated.

My wife has a Canon 60D DSLR camera. When she looks through the view finder, it looks like the lens has a speck of dust on it as she can see it in the viewfinder. She has swapped lenses and the spec is still there. She used the auto clean function for the sensor, but the spec hasn't moved, This is almost a brand new camera. Should we clean the sensor by hand? If so, how do you do it?


Take a couple of pictures, over a dark background, if you can see the spec of dust on them, the problem might be in the mirror. Now, if the dust does not appear on the pictures, it's either on the viewfinder, or somewhere else out of the way of the s ... Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera

Reset option and clean sensor option are not visible in set up menu. Canon D20 I had a two spots that kept appearing in the same area of the photo so I looked at the manual and did the clean sensor function a couple of times and the spots remain.

I bought this camera off of an realestate agent, she said it wasnt very old and that it worked great, it didnt have a memory card in it she said i would haft to get one. I have gotten 3 differnt ones and they all say it cant be read. I talked to a walmart associate and she thought I needed a 1 gb memory card for that camera so I got one off line and it still does the same thing. I put the same memory card in another camera and it works just fine. I have this nice camera and I cant even use it

Shutter malfunction few weeks ago I moved and when I began unpacking and got to my camera, I discovered that something had spilled in the box and was coating the camera. I dried it off as best I could, and turned it on. It worked normally. A few days later, I noticed that whatever had spilled on it, that I hadn't been able to clean off, formed a strange gel like coating around some of the buttons. I again cleaned off what I could get to, and again, turned the camera on, and about a second later,
