Stupidly went to blow dust of the imaging sensor and ended up spitting on the sensor, just a little. Have tried E2 cleaning solution to clean the sensor but the marks from my spit will not go away. Do I need a new sensor and if so roughly how much are we talking?


Well depends, I would take it to a camera shop to rule that out and not mess with it anymore. You looking around $60 for the sensor depending where you live and the shop. But in genral this sensor can be dipped but I would allow them to tell you that ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera

I have a panasonic lumix dmc-fz18, it has developed what look like three dust spots on the sensor, its just over two years old, shouldnt this camera be sealed against dust? If the above is comfirmed then I assume the dust was in the camera from new, trouble is no one from panasonic wants to answer my e-mails!


It's impossible to seal against the inevitable dust. The best we can do is protect our cameras as much as possible. If you want to be able to clean a sensor, you need to step up to a DSLR camera. Maybe you're ready...I know you will be very happy wit ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 Digital Camera

Hi, my Kodak easyshare MD41 will turn on but when i do it retracts the lens right away. i took it to the beach, so im guessing sand or the sand dust got in it. Is there a way i can fix this without having to buy a new camera or take it to customer service? And also have it fixed before March 14th, 2011?


You are right it got some sand into its eyes. You know that canned Air you can get at the office supply stores I used it to blow out the sand. Remember it will blow refrigerant out if you shake it, or turn it upside down. I set it on a table so I co ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

My wife has a Canon 60D DSLR camera. When she looks through the view finder, it looks like the lens has a speck of dust on it as she can see it in the viewfinder. She has swapped lenses and the spec is still there. She used the auto clean function for the sensor, but the spec hasn't moved, This is almost a brand new camera. Should we clean the sensor by hand? If so, how do you do it?


Take a couple of pictures, over a dark background, if you can see the spec of dust on them, the problem might be in the mirror. Now, if the dust does not appear on the pictures, it's either on the viewfinder, or somewhere else out of the way of the s ... Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera

I was told today my sensor is bad in my Cannon S1IS camera and it would take $130.00 to fix. I have also seen some sensor recalls on this model. What are my options?


Run away from whoever told you that it would cost you money to fix this problem. Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera' ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS 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

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple


If the CCD were bad and everything else OK, you would see all the icons on the LCD (viewing screen), and you would be able to see images on the memory card that had been taken in the past while in Replay mode. The service letter you refer to covers r ... Canon Digital Cameras

We have a Fuji S5000 digital camera we really like. However, lately it takes shots that are more like artwork with colors running down the page. I looked it up and it appears to be the image sensor. Where can I get a replacement sensor or the camera fixed What should I expect it to cost as we are debating whether to find a used one or just buy a new camera.


Hi!Yes, it's the image sensor (CCD). For Fujifilm it usually comes together with lens and that makes it quite expensive - about 200$ here. I whink you should get a new one.Tom ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

I bought a Canon 40D from Amazon--through Ace Digital Photo--in a kit with a 17-85mm lens, presumably new. I replaced it recently with the 50D. Now I learn that the camera, which was never outside my home and has about 100 activations was used--quite a lot of use and significant dust on the sensor. I was cheated, obviously. I can see the dust myself and a camera shop told me the camera was used extensively. Well, I am pretty disappointed. The purchase date was around 08/01/2008 and I still


This is not a Canon web site. But I seriously doubt that Canon would send used cameras to its dealers -- where would they get them? More likely one of Ace's former customers returned the camera and Ace re-sold it as new. Your unfortunate situation is ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a sony dsch5 and am able to use everything on the camera except I can not see the images in the view finder. I had someone local take a quick look at it and he said it was the sensor. I do not know where to get one and do not want to pay 285 dollars to fix it. Can you please let me know how I can fix the camera. Thank you

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

There is some black unremovable dots (not visible on sensor sirface). Is IMAGE DUST OFF REFERENCE DATA helpful to remove that black dust like dot from image? how can I use that feture?


Black, unremovable dots are probably bad pixels in the sensor. These are parts of the sensor that no longer react to light. If you don't see any issue looking through the viewfinder, then the sensor is messed up. Since you say you don't see anythi ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Hello, My Canon A610 is not focusing anymore. Seems the sensor is dead or can't see anything. Otherwise I can play pictures from card but it doesn't take any picture because there is no signal from the sensor. Can be fixed? Thank you very much. Kind regards, Radu M: 07872834832

How do I clean the dust off the sensor on my Canon Powershot SD1100IS Is there a tutorial that shows the step by step process to take the camera apart and get to the sensor?


Sensor cleaning is done on DSLR cameras, not on point-and-shoot cameras. If you take it apart without the proper equipment, alignment tools, and not to mention knowledge, you will end up with a paper weight. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
