Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-H20 Digital Camera ?

Spots and smudges

\015 I returned my first H20 after 10 days because there were spots on the pictures. They look like water spots that were on the lens, but cleaned it and still shows spots. they are in different parts of the picture every time. I exchanged the camara and still having the same problem. This one has the same spots and a smudge across the middle. the lens is clean. it is like it is on the inside of the lens. I love this camara and hate to have to get another one if I can not find a fix.\015

Answers :

The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back to the camera because the flash is so close to the lens. This is a problem with all point and shoot cameras...some more than others.

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.

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

Broken screen I have had the Olympus FE 190 since May 2007.  At the moment, the screen is broken.  It appears to have some physical damage, but since I bought a protective case, I can't think of how it would happen.  when the camera is off, you can see a large darker spot on the screen.  when turned on, the top half of the screen is white, with the large black spot running through.  there also seems to be a lighter thin line in the spot.  the bottom half of the screen is fine and ready to take a

I have a Canon SD780IS camera and now notice dark spots on the pictures. I tried cleaning the front of the lens with a Q-tip but they did not go away or move around. I have 2 such cameras . One with 6-8 spots and my new one with one spot. Is there a sensor that one can clean. Does anyone else have this problem

To thansen 3:\012\012Yes, eventually everyone who owns this camera will see these dust orbs in every photo they take once the problem appears, and the problem continues to worsen until you will see no image at all.

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

Some of my pictures have a spot on them. like a "water" spot. i thought i was on the lens but two or three pics will be ok then one will spot. any clue?

The clue was that not all of your pictures had this spot or two. What I expect from what your wrote is that these spots are what is called lens flair. It's caused by a strong point of light entering the lens at an angle. Such points of light are comm ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T5 Digital Camera

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.

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

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.
