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?

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

We have a Fuji S5000 digital camera we really like. However, lately it takes shots that are more like artwork with colors running down the page. I looked it up and it appears to be the image sensor. Where can I get a replacement sensor or the camera fixed What should I expect it to cost as we are debating whether to find a used one or just buy a new camera.


Hi!Yes, it's the image sensor (CCD). For Fujifilm it usually comes together with lens and that makes it quite expensive - about 200$ here. I whink you should get a new one.Tom ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Hello I have a faulty JVC GR-DF470. It seems that some models (not this one), had a malfunctioning CCD Image Sensor. This appears to be the case with this model. JVC will no longer fix the problem free, so I am just concerned as to how much a new Sensor would be? It sounds expensive! Thank you Allan Wilkins


This is not going to be cheap to replace. As soon as you get out of the warrenty period and end up purchasing repair parts from the factory you will usually pay as much as a new camera or very close. Repair parts are priced differently (quite a bit d ... JVC Digital Cameras

I am not sure whether this feedback will work for me or not but still I must say that I am totally dissatisfy with canon DSLR camera and it?s service that is available in Kolkata. 16 months ago I bought a canon EOS 1000D (SN. 730203665) camera. Two months ago I found a problem that, the images I took, a black spot was coming on the top of all the images. I went to the local canon service center in Kolkata they advised that the sensor needs to be cleaned and I handover the camera to them for c

Image sensor is off centre, therefore the resulting image is not matching the one showing on screen. Thanx.


Hi,\015\012For that problem it's a fix best left to a professional because the sensor is very delicate. If you're within your warranty I'd contact Sony and ask them about repairing it (since it should be free of charge), if they refuse or it's out of ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera

Pink image I seem to have faulty sensors on my ixus 500. I get a pink image from time to time, but the frequesncy increases. Last year the canon agent repaired it for free, but iI didn't expect it to be faulty again in 12 months


Sounds like they put another defective sensor in your camera. "Pink images" are very indicative of a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should again fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping var ... Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera

There is some black unremovable dots (not visible on sensor sirface). Is IMAGE DUST OFF REFERENCE DATA helpful to remove that black dust like dot from image? how can I use that feture?


Black, unremovable dots are probably bad pixels in the sensor. These are parts of the sensor that no longer react to light. If you don't see any issue looking through the viewfinder, then the sensor is messed up. Since you say you don't see anythi ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Black Screen Bought wife L18 last Xmas. Used once since. Turn it on and lens comes out, but screen is nearly completely black. Menu items barely readable if not viewed under bright light.

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple
