Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera ?

Black spot in center of macro shots

\015 In the center of the photo there is a black circle dead center of the photos, the lens is clean. As far as we can access it. We loved the camera until a month ago it is not that old and well taken care of. Is this an inherint problem with this model? What can we do? Everything we buy is Sony, DVDrecorder, stereos, tvs, etc.I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 that I love. Lately I have two gray spots that show up on light backgrounds on my photos. I have taken photos of sunsets, but have been careful not to focus directly at the sun. Now I'm looking for a reasonable, reliable place to send it for repair. Any suggestions???\015

Hi,
I think it would be dust particles on CCD Imager of camera. This is not common problem of Sony DSC-W100 cameras

CCD Imager can be cleaned if you can open camera. I will assist you to clean CCD Imager.
It would be fine if you post an image of camera showing problem. That will help to find solution.
