My Panisonic Lumix was dropped in the lake in its case last summer. I dried it out and it still works great. The only thing is now when I take photos of things that are dark like night time photos or a room painted a dark color small spots show up. I am assuming that those are water spots on the lense. What is the best way o fix this problem? Thanks.
If these spots are in different places on each picture, then they are actually reflections of dust particles in the air from the flash being so close to the lens. If they are in the same place on each picture, then they are indeed water spots on the ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

I have a D-80 Nikon with a small spot that always looks darker than the rest of the picture. It is roughly round and about the size of a quarter viewed at arms length compared to the picture it is on. It is only slightly darker than the rest of the picture and is usually only noticeable on a landscape or similar picture where the sky has a spot that looks like slightly darker blue sky. I am guessing there has been a spot of water on the CCD that left behind some residue when it dried.
Sounds to me like you're on the right track. \015\012\015\012There are plenty of places that can clean your CCD for you if you can be without the camera for a little bit, but there is also the solution of cleaning the CCD yourself. This ... Digital Cameras
My camera is producing spots, or freckle-like or shadow-like spots which are noticable on photos such as a clear blue sky photo. The spots are in the exact same place on photos even when I change to different lens. I know the mirror flips up for a photo, but to be safe, I have cleaned it, but that didn't help anything. Purchased camera 11/07.
You have dust on your sensor. your best bet is to get it cleaned professionally, . if you want to clean it yourself, get a kit like this\015\012\015\012http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Survival-KIT-Sensor-Eclipse/dp/B000PNGM18/ref=sr_1_2?s=elect ...

THE SPOT IS IN THE UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER OF ANY SHOT WHERE THERE ARE CLOUDS OR SKY. FLASH PICTURES, INTERIOR PICTURES AND THE LIKE, THERE IS NO SPOT. PLEASE HELP...RICHIE
If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing. However, it's more likely that there's dirt on your CCD. On your camera's menu, select mirror lockup/cl ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera with 28-135mm lens
We are an orthodontic office using the Nikon D7000 to take facial and intra-oral photos. We are noticing that the intra-oral shots taken from 1-2 feet away have spots over the photo that look like freckles. The facial shots taken from 4-5 feet away do not appear to have the spots; however the camera is having trouble focusing at that distance.

The screen shows a small black walnut shape on a white background. Shuttter opens as normal but does not appear to take photos. Camera is fully charged.

In my nikon d50, after I take a photo (when it displays) on the screen), it is covered with a semi-transparent menu of details about the photo. Not a histogram, but a text display with items like the date the photo was taken. Or it displays 4 small numbered thumbnails. When I click enter, I zoom. I just want the REGULAR display mode.

Some of my pictures have a spot on them. like a "water" spot. i thought i was on the lens but two or three pics will be ok then one will spot. any clue?
The clue was that not all of your pictures had this spot or two. What I expect from what your wrote is that these spots are what is called lens flair. It's caused by a strong point of light entering the lens at an angle. Such points of light are comm ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T5 Digital Camera

The camera seems to work fine but when pictures are downloaded or printed there is a mark - like a scorch mark - on the photo. It is always in the same spot. Really like this camera!

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.
It is definitely a CCD issue. First of all how long have you owned the camera? I am guessing it is out of warranty so in most cases it is the best option to purchase a replacement as you will be able to get one twice as good for about as much as the ... Digital Cameras

Hello. I have recently gotten a Sony DSC-s950 SteadyShot. Yesterday, I plugged in the camera and later took it out. But when attempting to view the photos inside of it, all I get is a very small box in the center that looks like a bunch of meshed up colors. When I connect to the computer though, I am still capable of seeing the images. Any help on this would be gladly appreciated.

Are you saying that part of the picture displayed on the camera screen flashes black? If so this is normal as far as I have read. It shows there is too much light on that part of that image. You can alter it not to show it flashing. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
Overexposed pictures I have a Kodak EasyShare C743. It has always done an excellent job. In the last couple of days though, my pictures are all over exposed and the colors are off. I'm very disappointed as I was taking homecoming photos and portraits. Do you have any suggestions as to why this happened? It has not been dropped or exposed to water or anything like that. Thank you
