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?

My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.
