Answers :

Unfortunately, what you touched was the cameras shutter. You will have to send the camera for a shutter replacement. You need to contact your dealer or the camera manufacturers support in order to find out where to send the camera.\015\012

After almost two years, pictures taken with my Nikon D80 are showing a black dot in the middle of the photo. You can't see it in the view finder and it shows up on all the pictures I take regardless of which lens I use. The mirror inside the camera does not have the black dot on it either. Is it a problem with the sensor? How can I get it fixed?

Hi, I purchased a replacement LCD screen for my SD3500 from Rongstar DigitalInc. Since I've learned they do not have a good reputation and to make matters worse the LCD screen will not function properly. It seems to light a bit and the "touch" seems to cause camera to beep as if the touch screen were working, but no images or "scene to take" is viualized ion the screen. As I said only a faint lighting ( appears to be black as if no light coming off it) . Help! I am sure it is connected corr

We have just got a Wii and the kids have changed something so when we go back to the DVD it plays with the people looking green. I think they have changed the cords connecting into the TV. They say they never actually touched the DVD player. There are five cords - red, yellow, white then a green and blue. When you move the blue one it changes it all to black and white. Most are colour coded to the same colour as the plugs on the tv.

When i take a picture on my nikon d40, black dots show up on them, like in the sky or on a white surface, my friend said it might be the mirrors but i didnt want to mess with it without actually knowing what it was, was just wondering if anyone knew?


It's actually dust on the sensor. There are kits that will allow you to safely clean your sensor, or you can ship it off to the factory to have this done. It's actually a very simple process though and is something you should learn to do for yourself ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera

Have a Coolpix s60. Worked fine until the other day...when the camera is turned on everything works fine but the viewfinder. Instead of seeing the object it is pointed at the screen is black. All the touch controls on either side are visable and the telephoto and wide funtions work and it will take a pictre. Everything seems to work fine except that you cannot see what you are taking a photo of? The battery is fully charged.

Looking for tips to clean a very dusty Canon EOS 350D I've just boughtoff eBay. The view through the viewfinder is very dirty with a couple of black spots and some dust and small hairs etc. The pictures themselves are clear so the sensor is fine, it is the opaque plastic bit through which the mirror reflects which needs a clean. This is the part with the seven little squares where the focus LEDs light. Also one of those LEDs (the leftmost) is not working and the next nearest ones are dimmer


If you know how to get the lens out, then it shouldn't be too difficult to clean it, but it is tricky. Having it serviced would be the best option. However, if the pictures are clear, i wouldn't bother much, as giving it for servicing would probably ... Digital Cameras
