Having problems with your Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera ?

Spot appears in pictures and LCD display.

\015 A spot appears on the pictures my daughter takes with her FinePix F20 and on the LCD display. When she zooms the display out, the spot spreads and lightens, as if it's out of focus. When she zooms in, the spot tightens and darkens. She took the camera to the beach, so I suspect that a grain of sand somehow found it's way into the lens. But, when I examine the lens from the outside, even with a magnifying glass, I don't see anything a grain of sand or anything that could cause a spot.What do you think? Grain of sand? If so, how do I get it out? Or could it be something else?\015

That's a good bet, I think the service centers will do this as an
"annual internal cleaning" although I don't know what they will charge. Taking apart the optics is challanging and risky.

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose
