Having problems with your Pentax Optio 30 Digital Camera ?
There are some spots on a picture that look grey(shadowing)? what is the cause of this
Do these spots look like soap bubbles and do they appear at different places on each picture? Also, do they only appear when you take flash pictures? If so, these are dust particles reflecting the light back into the lens because the flash is so close to the lens. We all have this problem.

I have a D-80 Nikon with a small spot that always looks darker than the rest of the picture. It is roughly round and about the size of a quarter viewed at arms length compared to the picture it is on. It is only slightly darker than the rest of the picture and is usually only noticeable on a landscape or similar picture where the sky has a spot that looks like slightly darker blue sky. I am guessing there has been a spot of water on the CCD that left behind some residue when it dried.
Sounds to me like you're on the right track. \015\012\015\012There are plenty of places that can clean your CCD for you if you can be without the camera for a little bit, but there is also the solution of cleaning the CCD yourself. This ... Digital Cameras

Lens error When I turn on Nikon Cool Pix S230, it tries to adjust the lens for a little bit then it says lens error. It is only a few months old. I think what caused the problem was the last time I took a picture there was a strobe light in the background which caused the picture to look funny. Then a few days later when I tried to work the camera I got this problem. thank you!

When I turn on my camera black spots appear on the lcd screen. They have been getting larger and it is hard to take pictures, since I have no peep to look through. The spots do not show up on the picture, just the lcd screen. It is getting to the point that I cannot see everyone that I'm focusing on because of it!

We continue to have problems once a picture is taken we get file errors or the picture is half merged with another picture. Also, the picture looks fine in the camera, but when we download to the computer it is merged with another picture that was not even loaded on the camera at the same time. We thought we might need to be more agressive in pusing down the shutter button, but this problem is really puzzeling us and causing aggravation. Can you help?

When I look at a picture from my D60, a thin red vertical line appears from about the middle of the photo down to the bottom in every picture. I swapped lenses and it still appears, so I think it's in the camera itself??? Any idea what would cause this, and if it can be fixed? Thank you!
In this condition, the problem might be caused by:-material such as thin soft fabric, hair, or dust that entered and glued on your sensor, you can use a blower to bring it out of the body-the sensor was broken due to hard impact or fall d ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera
Coolpix L6: the view screens looks as if the lens is cracked... there is a curved line with the picture showing below and a bright view with nothing legible above the line.. also these are two spots on the crack where it looks as if water or oil has seeped in the crack.

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature had changed enough to cause the lens to fog up. However, after cleaning the lens, the blurriness was still there. I could look through the photos on the camera and the photos taken prior to noticing the blurriness are clear and look great. After two days of being inside at room temperature,

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

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?
Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera
