Reset option and clean sensor option are not visible in set up menu. Canon D20 I had a two spots that kept appearing in the same area of the photo so I looked at the manual and did the clean sensor function a couple of times and the spots remain. I had also done a reset all functions since my stepson gave me the camera and I wanted to restore it to its original settings. Now I don't see either the clean sensor option or the reset in the set up menu. Help!

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
Spots on photos that are consistant and reoccurring. They are not caused by the lens...regardless of lens the spots appear on the photo. I think they may be on the sensor. How do you clean it?
First, try a bulb blower. Don't use compressed air, but a rubber squeeze bulb. If that doesn't work, you can try a sensor swab. There are also things like static brushes like the Arctic Butterfly.Any good camera store should be able ... Nikon D100 Digital Camera

Looking for tips to clean a very dusty Canon EOS 350D I've just boughtoff eBay. The view through the viewfinder is very dirty with a couple of black spots and some dust and small hairs etc. The pictures themselves are clear so the sensor is fine, it is the opaque plastic bit through which the mirror reflects which needs a clean. This is the part with the seven little squares where the focus LEDs light. Also one of those LEDs (the leftmost) is not working and the next nearest ones are dimmer
If you know how to get the lens out, then it shouldn't be too difficult to clean it, but it is tricky. Having it serviced would be the best option. However, if the pictures are clear, i wouldn't bother much, as giving it for servicing would probably ... Digital Cameras

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

My camera is producing spots, or freckle-like or shadow-like spots which are noticable on photos such as a clear blue sky photo. The spots are in the exact same place on photos even when I change to different lens. I know the mirror flips up for a photo, but to be safe, I have cleaned it, but that didn't help anything. Purchased camera 11/07.

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. THE LENSE IS CLEAN AT BOTH ENDS. I CHECKED MY PHOTOS WHEN I ORIGINALLY GOT THIS CAMERA AND THERE IS NO ROUND SPOTS ANYWHERE. THE SPOT IS IN THE UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER OF ANY SHOT WHERE THERE ARE CLOUDS OR SKY. FLASH PICTURES, INTERIOR PICTURES AND THE LIKE, THERE IS NO SPOT. PLEASE HELP...RICHIE
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. However, it's more likely that there's dirt on your CCD. On your camera's menu, select mirror lockup/cl ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera with 28-135mm lens
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?

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've recently wet-cleaned my Sony A100 sensor and in the process, I attempted to clean the viewfinder pieces. The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's
Viewfinders are very sensitive and delicate. The best and safest way to clean the viewfinder screen is not to touch\015\012it and not to use solvents on it. No matter how dirty it is it won't\015\012affect the image. If it gets dusty, use a blower to ... Digital Cameras

Hi.my daughter's Panasonic DMC-FZ7 has gone dark through the view-finder, and all the photos and videos that she tries to shoot are likewise totally black. While photographing yesterday, she paused to gently clean the lens. All photos since then have been black.

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
