Dark spots in Sony W1


\015 Hi, in my Sony W1 there are dark spots. What causes them and how do I fix it?\015

Answers :

Could be Airborne Dust. Are they in the same spot all the time? Are there the same amount every time? Chance are it is just airborne dust, sometimes when indoors or in sunny conditions it will come up as light spots. If it random, I wouldn't be concerned about the sensor. (I noticed similar things when I first got my camera).
Probably dust. Either you try cleaning the CCD which is not really easy, and can add more dust than remove, or you try and live with it. Usually unnoticeable. If annoying, try cloning it out...

My Panisonic Lumix was dropped in the lake in its case last summer. I dried it out and it still works great.

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.
