Black spot on picture

I dropped my camera and afterwards it worked fine. A week later, I found a black spot on the images. The spot comes into focus when I zoom in and becomes a blurred spot when I zoom out. The surface of the lens is clean. The spot is stationary and shows up on the camera screen as well as on an uploaded image. The camera is 3 months old but will likely not be fixed by Casio due to the small dent that shows it was dropped. I am willing to open the camera and look for the culprit and i am looking for suggestions on where to look for it and/or warnings.

My Nikon was having the same problem with the stationary black spot. I used a can of Dust Off ( the original compressed gas duster). I just removed the lens and held the camera upside down (lens facing the floor) and blew my compressed air inside and my black spot disappeared. Just a thought you might like to know !! Good luck.

Thanks Mr. Guest of April 10, 2007. I had the same problem and my camera is fixed now. I had no idea what was going on. Thank you once again you were very helpful.

THe problem is a speck of dust or moisture that is on the digital screen. I opened up the camera and looked inside and the screen is sealed up pretty tight. I was able to get the spot to go away by lightly tapping the camera on its side,against my hand. It took some time but the spot slowly moved on the screen and eventualy disappeared. Its worth a try on yours I guess.

Could be on the CMOS sensor, take it to be repaired. If u still want to go ahead and open it, avoid using your hands inside, use vacuum hand pumps and brushes.

My D3000 focuses, but only black images show up on the memory card. It's as if the images are not being transferred to the memory card

Dropping a D3000 is one to make you you say something bad

Outside of trying different lenses and memory cards, there\'s probably little anyone can tell you that you\'re going to like to hear. If it\'s a problem inside the camera, it should go back to Nikon for repairs. If you obtain an RMA from Nikon and send it in, they will evaluate it and give you a repair price. At that point you can decide whether or not to go through with repairs or cut your losses and buy a replacement.

Good luck!

Recently I found one balck spot on my picture, I dont know whay the black spot is coming. I am having a Nikkon D90 18-105 lens.

The black spot can be from one or two sources. The first, is a called a stuck or hot pixel. Your camera's sensor has 12.9 million pixels (12.3 million are used for the image). Many times, a hot or stuck pixel is a bright color - red, yellow, green, etc. It can be any color however. Dark or black pixels can also be called dead pixels as they look like they're "off." Regardless of which your camera suffers, it will not respond to light projected on the sensor by the lens. You'll have to have manually edit the pixel in each image, or return to Nikon for sensor replacement. Nikon used to perform a mapping out of the pixel, but it seems that they don't do this any longer. A sensor replacement can cost in the hundreds of dollars.

The second source, is dust on the sensor. A pixel(s) blocked by dust will show up in each picture, but will appear to be more in focus in some images than others - depending on the aperture value of the camera when the exposure was made. A stuck pixel usually has a very definite edge on all images regardless of aperture setting. A simple, careful wet cleaning of the sensor with a product designed specifically for the job can solve this problem pretty quickly.

Here's a video for wet sensor cleaning from Youtube There are others here too. I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Caplio R7 Lens having black spots

Sounds like the spots are on your sensor. If on the lens, it would be too out of focus to matter.

Fuji f700

I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
