Hi

Its hard to say without seeing the camera myself, but it's either dust inside the lens or it could be a small amount of condensation that has dried up and left a small amount of dirt behind.

What you will need to do (or have somebody do) is open up the camera, tear apart the lens and see if there is any dirt on the CCD. You can also look inside the lens from the front and see if you see any dirt trapped inside.

If you see dirt trapped inside the lens.... The only solution I know of is to replace the lens. If it's on the CCD (behind the lens) it's easy to clean off. Just make sure you don't leave fingerprints on the CCD when you're cleaning it.

If you need somebody to do it for you, we are a digital camera repair business (Google Darntoothysam) and would be happy to help. I think we have a CCD cleaning listed for about $35 including return shipping of the camera, but please note as I said above if its inside the lens elements and not on the CCD we can't clean it off.

Hopefully this advice helps, and if you need to ask further questions please feel free to contact me.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Lumix pictures blurry


I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.

Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

Black fuzzy spot in pictures


Have you verified that it is in the picture and not the screen by transferring the photos to your computer?


You way have some dust or lint that got on the lens if the photos have that problem.


Just take an eyeglass cloth and spray wither eyeglass cleaner, or just a little dab of alcohol and then wipe the lens clean.

Try cleaning the lens with a camera cleaning kit, other than that it will need to be serviced by a professional.

My FE-230 is only 2 years old and will not turn on/off properly


This sounds remarkedly like a camera that has been dropped. Even by someone else! The odd noise it the can[mera trying to set the lens up and failing. The black screen is because the lens has not travelled the distance etc. multiple problems !
it needs a complete overhaul and may well be cheaper to ditch it and get a new camera

FUZZY & BLURRY PICTURES.


It could be the focusing, did you check the focus every time? A slow shutter speed also causes blurry pictures. I know you do use your tripod, but if you don't use the self-timer function or a shutter cable then you are not using the tripod properly. Also, check the front piece of glass in the lens, clean it if it has stains or whatever on it.

Screen all fuzzy when taking photo.


What you have is a CCD issue. The CCD is the part of the camera that captures the images and stores it to the card. When the CCD goes bad it does some pretty funky things, including blurry, fuzzy or other weird things when they go bad.

Here is a link to an eBay auction with a CCD on it.
