Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a D-80 Nikon with a small spot that always looks darker than the rest of the picture. It is roughly round and about the size of a quarter viewed at arms length compared to the picture it is on. It is only slightly darker than the rest of the picture and is usually only noticeable on a landscape or similar picture where the sky has a spot that looks like slightly darker blue sky. I am guessing there has been a spot of water on the CCD that left behind some residue when it dried.

Sounds to me like you're on the right track.

There are plenty of places that can clean your CCD for you if you can be without the camera for a little bit, but there is also the solution of cleaning the CCD yourself. This is a scary topic, however, because a) if you do it, it will void your manuf. warranty, if applicable and b) if you do it and mess it up, your CCD can be damaged.

There are products out there - swabs and solutions - to clean the CCD if you choose to do so yourself. Personally, to make certain that nothing goes wrong, I would send it to Nikon or take it to your local dealer and have them take a look at it.

Can't locate the oil drain plug to change oil.


Around the base of the motor there should be small round cap about the size of a quarter with two small round quarter inch high posts on it - that is for finger leverage.. Unscrew it and tip the mower so all the oil comes out.. Replace oil and cap.

I have a Bushnell Elite 4200 6x24x40 rifle scope 42-6242M


First is to try for a group, do not adjust the scope in any way. Shoot 4 rounds with out adjusting the scope. The gun should settle down and start to group. If you can not get a group in 6 rounds go clean that gun & check your ammo. Start over. If she does not group, its the gun not the scope. Once it starts to group move the cross hairs in the opp direction small clicks and "TAP' the scope after each adjustment. Shoot for a group each time 2 rounds should group. Get a target that has a grid to help get on faster.

Photosmart pictures have random white circles


It sounds like you have a photosensor that is going bad. If it happens 80% of the time, it is time to fix it or repair it. I have a friend who can fix cameras, he is cheaper and faster than the manufacturer.

Prints have darker same color circles are the same size.


The ccd sensor is dirty. Have it cleaned at a camera shop. You can do yourself with sensor swabs and eclipse fluid but it a is very delicate operation. Local shop here cleaning is $45 and no spots, well worth it.

It might be caused by some dirt on your lens (either front or rear element) but is more likely to be dust on the cameras sensor.

There are a couple of sample images of what this looks like here and here.

Dust spots typically have a softish edge to them and affect more than 1 pixel. (if it is just the 1 pixel affected, which a very sharp edge, this could be a defective sensor).

Following the instructions in the manual for cleaning the sensor. Avoid touching the sensor (unless it is with a specialist sensor cleaning brush) and avoid cans of compressed air; use a hand-blower brush instead.

Black spot on lower part of screen.


Sounds like the LCD is damaged, it's commonly called a bruise. It can only happen when too much force is applied to the screen causing irreparable damage to the LCD crystals, causing them appear darker than the rest.

There is a picture here on the second post down.
