Spots inside lense


\015 I have had a Kodak DX6490 camera for almost two years. Just lately it has gotten white dust (?) spots inside the lense. You can see them quite clearly and they are almost sparkly. The problem is that they show up on the finished photo. What do I do???\015

I have a sony cybershot dsc-p200 digital camera. There is a spot that shows up on pictures that appears to be dust or moisture residue on the lense. I have cleaned the outside lense several times and it appears that the spot is on the inside. How do I clean the inside of the lense?

CAMERA IS THREE MONTHS OLD. ON MY LAST OUTING I NOTICED A PERFECT CIRCLE SPOT ONLY IN SHOTS OF THE SKY. THE SPOT IS IN THE IDENTICAL PLACE ON ALL SKY SHOT PHOTOS NO MATTER WHAT FOCAL LENGHT IS USED.

If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing.

I own a canon s2 is power shot. Symptoms began with the digital zoom beeping and the screen going blank when invoked to draw an image closer. After a periood of time of avoiding the zoom, the camera lense stuck inside and gave an e18 message when beeping. I could still survey old pics but can't take new pics as the screen is blank and the lense won't come out. The warranty expired 10 months ago, I've tried forced air, changing batteries and mem card and pressing on the lense. The lense is off to

On all my Scenery shots there are clear round consistent spots on photos. These 4 spots only show up on sky, ocean, & light scenes. They are consistently in the same spot. Also showed up on a Brides White Dress. What can I do to fix this.....Oh one more fact....I changed out my 3 lenses and it shows up on all three, so it's definitely the camera body problem.

Suddenly the pictures I take with my Lumix DMC-ZS3 have dark, shadowy, relatively circular spots on them. The spots are more noticeable when I zoom in. The spots are always in the same places on my images. This is my favorite camera of all time and I very distressed over this issue. I suspect dust has collected somewhere inside the lens where I can not get at it. I have gently cleaned the outside surface of the lens and have blown it off with compressed air but the problem persists, What c

My IXUS 990 camera has fallen form a 1 ft hight and now lense is not going inside. I am surprised that this is treated by authorised canon repair agency as a broken lense reason. I saw the camera lense didn't had such hit that it will have problem. Now agency propose to change it at a cost of 200 Euro. Is it fair thing to agree?
