I have something that looks like a smudge on all of my digital pictures. I think it could be an artifact inside the lens. What can I do short of taking the camera in or buying a new one?


If the smudge is always at the same place you have some dirt on the sensor (I ask myself how it could get there since the lense cannot be removed!) In that case you have to give it to be cleaned (ask for an estimate of the cost!!!) ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera. Everything else is fine, I can see the picture perfectly. It's just the lens that won't go back inside. How can I fix this myself without buying a new camera, or having to pay someone to fix it?

How do I clean dust inside the camera? I noticed some splotches on my photos, then looked closely at the lens and it appears there is dust on the inside of the lens.


You can't clean inside the camera. Dust inside the lens would be so out of focus, it wouldn't register on your pics unless the particle was huge. Do these splotches only happen in your flash pictures? ... Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera

Here we are on our DREAM trip West, currently at the Grand Canyon. Now, with my D80 getting an 'F---' error message in my LCD settings area. Was using my 18-135mm lens. Finally, and regrettably, switched to my telephoto and error message disappeared. This AM put the 18-135 lens back on and worked perfectly for a few inside shots inside our RV.


Use a clean moist cloth and clean the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the mount on the body. When putting the lens back on, try jiggling the lens a little and see if that helps. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?

I applied lens cleaning fluid directly to the lens of my camera, a Fuji F50FD digital compact, but it seems to have leaked into the lens housing. Any photos I now take appear with mutiple fine white streaks across them. Curiously, when I shoot in video mode the footage appears completely unaffected. Is this something that I can fix myself - is it just a question of taking the camera apart, then cleaning the inside with care? Or would the lens housing now to be replaced?


This is not something I would recommend you do without the proper knowledge or alignment tools. You would probably just end up with a brick instead of a camera. Sending it to a repair center would be very expensive. Possibly much more than the camera ... Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?!
