Spots on ccd sensor


... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

There's some dust spots in my pictures with my Nikon D80. I have sent it for sensor cleaning at Nikon centre but seems that the spots cannot be removed as the technician says it's hidden underneath/behind the sensor. I am not sure how true it is or the technician is just plain lazy because I had to tell him where the spots were 3 times before he got the remove most of them. The spots are not visible if I don't scrutinise the pictures though but it sure is irritating knowing there are 1 more spec


I think the problem is with the technician. I suggest you talk to the manager and ask for another technician to help you with this problem. I do not recommend trying to clean the sensor yourself as you may cause more harm than good. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

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 had also done a reset all functions since my stepson gave me the camera and I wanted to restore it to its original settings. Now I don't see either the clean sensor option or the reset in the set up menu. Help!

I have a Canon SD780IS camera and now notice dark spots on the pictures. I tried cleaning the front of the lens with a Q-tip but they did not go away or move around. I have 2 such cameras . One with 6-8 spots and my new one with one spot. Is there a sensor that one can clean. Does anyone else have this problem


To thansen 3:\012\012Yes, eventually everyone who owns this camera will see these dust orbs in every photo they take once the problem appears, and the problem continues to worsen until you will see no image at all.

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

Spots on photos that are consistant and reoccurring. They are not caused by the lens...regardless of lens the spots appear on the photo. I think they may be on the sensor. How do you clean it?


First, try a bulb blower. Don't use compressed air, but a rubber squeeze bulb. If that doesn't work, you can try a sensor swab. There are also things like static brushes like the Arctic Butterfly.Any good camera store should be able ... Nikon D100 Digital Camera

I have the same problem, and the picture is lower than should be. I turned on the CCD clean function and the CCD sensor won't stay in place, it slides down a bit (which is why the picture is lower). I'm not sure how to fix this or even if I should attempt it.


Don't even attempt it as it's not amenable to DIY repair.if you have a warranty then get it repaired. if you don't have any warranty left then contact Sony directly as they have a good track record for offering free out of warranty repair ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera

Hello I have a faulty JVC GR-DF470. It seems that some models (not this one), had a malfunctioning CCD Image Sensor. This appears to be the case with this model. JVC will no longer fix the problem free, so I am just concerned as to how much a new Sensor would be? It sounds expensive! Thank you Allan Wilkins


This is not going to be cheap to replace. As soon as you get out of the warrenty period and end up purchasing repair parts from the factory you will usually pay as much as a new camera or very close. Repair parts are priced differently (quite a bit d ... JVC Digital Cameras

Re: CCD Sensor


Base on my experience with Sony CCD's, if it was the CCD, you would have NO picture. Odds are that the problem is the auto-focus circuit or the focus motor/gear. Either way it's highly unlikely that a shop could fix it, let alone trying it yourself. ... Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera
