When you state that you have cleaned the entire camera have you removed the lens and cleaned the back element and have you fired the shutter with the lens off and the dial set to B so the shutter will remain open and cleaned the lens behind the mirror? If not I think you have some more cleaning to do.

Flashcam


I have been having the same problem with a Canon camcorder photo mode. 1st try cleaning the lens in case there are spots on it showing up in resulting images. 2nd, add more lighting to the subject, direct overhead if possible, or adjust the white balance to match the lighting situation, rather than using automatic white balance.

White spots on images


Does the camer have a removable lens. Is it an SLR camera. If so, there probably is microscopic dust on your sensor, or you have some dead pixels on your sensor. If you can get to the sensor, you can easily clean it with a cleaning kit. The most effective way of cleaning is to blow it off with clean air. Be gentle. On an SLR it is necessary to lock the mirror up. Your instruction book will explain how to do that. For more suggestions, Google cleaning my camera sensor and you will get a lot of suggestions. :-)

White cloudy spots on my images - a recent problem


If these are like "bubble" spots and they appear in different places on each photo, I'm guessing you're shooting flash pictures indoors. The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This happens on small point-and -shoots because the flash is almost in the same plane as the lens.

LCD screen and pictures go completly white


The camera is defective. But as you've only had the camera three months it still is under warranty. Canon is usually very responsive to these type of problems and will bend over backwards to make things right (probably the most responsive of the camera companies).

Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve this issue.

No setting can cause white spots on the picture, this is a fault.

By the way you can reset settings on this camera to initial state by simply removing and putting back camera batteries.
Alternatively you should have a reset command on camera settings menu.

My opinion is that this is a fault and not a settings problem.

Typically there are three kind of faults that can cause this problem:

1 - Dirty lens or water inside the lens:
The lens may be dirty inside, for example because of water condensation on internal surfaces, this will cause blurred dots or black dots. The lens must be taken apart and cleaned in this case.

2 - Defective CCD sensor.
The CCD sensor is the chip that detects the picture, if you get well defined white or colored spots on picture that is probably a defective CCD. I think this is the more likely in your case. To fix this the sensor must be replaced.

3 - Defective video chip on internal board.
This can cause any kind of problems, however it is quite unlikely.
It is an expensive repair.

White spot on photo


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this would be a temperature imbalance on the CCD lens. Often white spot(s) appear at night or when the temperature is cold. Workaround is to open the lens but delay taking a picture after a few seconds. The idea is allow the lens to match the ambient temperature.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

D50 black spot of photos


Ok, step one - find an appropriate cleaning solution - be it an air blower, like a rocket blower, a pads, alcohol and a qtip, etc. Keep in mind that it's not necessarily true more expensive means better cleaning... but I wouldn't go the dirt cheap route of alcohol and a qtip, though many claim they use it. Personally, I use a blower, but I havn't had anything more than dust thus far...

After that, prep a very clean environment, then take off your lens, and clean your mirror!!! Then when you think it's clean, try your camera again... if you still have spots, then you're going to have to clean the sensor... again, I'd use a blower, especially considering that if you ruin the sensor, you've pretty much ruined your entire camera.

If you STILL have spots, check your lens for dust, both front and back lenses. Still spots? Try another lense entirely (might be scratches). STILL on there? Then you probably have a bad sensor... see warranty information and pray :).

If any of this makes you queasy, look in your phonebook for stores that will offer repair, and try to locate the Nikon-qualified if possible.

Getting spots on photos


I pulled out the cartridge that was causing the spots, dabbed at the small pool of ink that collected with a very soft paper towel, re-cleaned the print heads and that seemed to solve it...

Dirty scans


Small white dots would indicate progressive failure of the CCD[sensor] or perhaps ingress of dirt to the inside of the glass. hard to say exactly with out seeing the machine.
