Spots on pics

Hi I have had problems with my Digital camera. I imagine it stems from dropping it but I have black spots on the pics..basically they show up on light backgrounds and also when I zoom in. I had it in at a shop and was hoping they would fix it..I described the problems to them and they said they replaced the LCD panel. They said the spots had been quite noticeable. They sent it back to me (after I spent over $125.00) and yesterday I took some pics. Brought the camera home and loaded the pics and there was the spots again.So I turned around and took pics of the sky and there you could see all kinds of spots..what causes this? After seeing the spots again,I did check the LCD screen when taking the pics and I noticed some spots were readily visible on the LCD screen.So what do I do now? If its not the LCD panel..what could it be? I could send a picture if that would help.

    Tthere is a black spot right in the middle of my pictures. It is magnified when using the zoom and also with light colored backgrounds. there seems to be a "bubble" when you look at the lens. Its this a dust problem?

I suggest you send it back to repair shop to clean ccd area. there are fine dusts in ccd screen area that camera need to be disassemble and removed and cleaned. I do not think the LCD is the problem. Some point and shoot models dust flowing through more than some others and if I am not mistaken, it seems this model has dust problem.

I bought a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W530 camera 4 weeks ago. About 2 weeks ago the screen developed a bright white spot along the one corner- the display would not show in that area. I didn't do anything...


If you turn off the LCD screen and use the viewfinder, same problem? Even with this wrong, are you try to take pics and see this in your pc? They are white or with some lines over image?

Two things there, first... could be a problem with the viewer screen, or, second choice could a problem CCD sensor go to bad; in both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Olympus service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Keep in mind and check if even you are underwarranty, if yes, applied.

Hope this helps.

Black spot on the picture


Hi cutesaying, if it is on all you photos in the same location it is one of two things, worse case is a bad sensor location (unlikely), most likely is there is crud on the sensor. You can perform a sensor cleaning if you fee up to it with specialized tools. Search the web for sensor cleaners there are many. Changing our lens is the most likely way dirt, and the like, gets on the camera sensor.

Time for new flash??


the camera's light sensor or metering system, for correct flash exposure is no longer working, that's why your shots is either black or white (overexposed or underexposed) the flash firing has loose its control because of the defective sensor, it now only depends on the charge current of the flash capacitor. If you'll wait longer time the charge is maximum picture result will be overexposed(white), and vice versa, less charge, dark result, have the flash assy replaced. Daylight no problem, it doesnt use the flash circuitry, thanks

Black spot on picture


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.
