Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Black dot on my pictures.

\015 Hello. I'm having a problem with my camera. \015\012It's Canon Rebel XTi. Lately I'm start seeing a black dot on my pictures. I've tried to start camera cleaning several times, but looks like it doesn't help. This dot becomes less visible, If I'm using more light, but in dark conditions it looks very bad. How can I fix it? Or it is something serious?\015

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?
