Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera
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
