Internal dust speck on Canon A720is in same upper right corner

\015 I am not sure how to clean the internal sensor of a Canon Powershot A720IS. The speck most likely entered the camera or lens when recently shooting some pictures from a moving vehicle. The shape and clarity of the dust speck changes as I zoom. When I use the digital zoom, the dust speck diagonally zooms off to the upper right hand corner of the frame and ultimately disappears at extreme digital zoom range. I tried caned photo dust off air in every opening of the camera with no luck. Anyone have an idea on how to get this cleaned out? Thanks!\015

Answers :

If dust is in the camera, it must be opened. I suggest not doing this yourself. Lookup a Canon dealer in your region and ask for support.

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge
