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...

I think they are from condensation on the lens, or something like that. I've had them with my W1 too at times, but mostly when there is moisture in the air and I'm taking pictures of the sky.

Hi Brandon,
I am afraid that the dark spot in the screen is not repairable. Manage as long as you can or go for a new tv.

Hi

It could be a power supply problem or an inverter board problem or something internal having to do with the backlighting of the unit. remove the inverter, and look at the back side and you will see a hot spot, now on the other side of that hot spot, re-solder the service mounted components and that should take care of your problem.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Dark area on Sony LCD screen model KDL-46XBR4


This model of SONY TV uses a Samsung display panel, the problem you have is the panel went bad.

SONY was offering an extended warranty to change the panel free, please call SONY to check it out that if they still offer the free replacement.

Use a flashlight and look closely at the narrow glass next to the platen glass. I usually find a spot of white out on the glass causing the streak. Also a dark spot on the white guide above the glass will cause a streak like you mentioned.

Help, White spots on photos with W1


Could be dust reflecting the flash. Water droplets also do it. Here's an example from an indoor trials where they had little RC cars on a dirt track next to the trials. The RC cars kicked up dust. The flash just bounced off the particles. This is an 828 with a Metz flash with a pocket bounce/diffuser on top. With the smaller camera with the flash more on axis of the lens the effect will be more pronounced since closer dust particles will be illuminated.

It has Multi AF, Center AF or fixed focus. The V1 i had went to 800ISO, if you turn the ISO up a little more may you can set a faster shutter speed. I think the only priority settings are the "scene modes" there may be an action ssetting in the scene modes.
