This is probably dust on the sensor.

You can clean this yourself or you can send the camera to Nikon.

If you want to see what you have to do, search for "nikon d70 sensor cleaning" on the internet.
There are instructions and videos to help.

It involves taking the lens off and locking up the camera mirror using the menu option.
Then either blow it off with a camera blower or clean the sensor with a cotton swab.

I did this myself on my D80, it is not hard but you have to be careful.

Yes, you can clean. Not as complex as I originally thought.
1) Remove all of the silver screws
2) Separate the silver case (should split in 2)
3) Remove the 3 black screws in the middle
4) remove the center square cover that is over the lens
5) Use a duster spray to clean the lense and mirror
6) Reassemble in reverse order
Not knowing what I was going to get in, the entire process only took about 7-10 minutes.

Mitsubishi wd 62527 has very dark picture changed


Clean the small front projection mirror. That mirror can get dust on it and will cause the projected image to appear dull and dim and cleaning that mirror will usually restore the brightness and crisp details in the image.

There is a large dark spot in the lower center portion of the projection area, I have cleaned the external lense and changed the bulb but the dark image remains.


if the spot is circular, check the lamp itself. if it has a flatter edge, chances are your light tunnel has collapsed and needs replaceing. it's not that old, so dell might repair it. but they might replace the entire optical engine, as they may not sell individual parts.

Dark spot issue.


Its an acrylic condensing lens inside the light engine that has melted/warped. You have to pullout the entire light engine then disassemble the optical light tunnel to get too the lens. Then you need a lens-smith to cut a new lens because Infocus won't stand behind this design flaw. Its really a shame on Infocus!

Nikon D60 newbie : colour distortion / large smudge in photos


D-SLR cameras are designed to be used with interchangeable lenses and foreign matter may enter the camera when lenses are changed. Once inside the camera, this foreign matter may adhere to the sensor, where it may appear in photographs taken under certain conditions. To prevent foreign matter from entering the camera
  • do not change lenses in dusty environments
  • point the camera down when changing lenses.
  • e738ca2.jpg
To protect the camera when no lens is in place be sure to thread on the body cap provided with the camera, being careful to first remove all dust and other foreign matter that may be adhering to the body cap.
Remove foreign matter from low-pass filter
  1. Clean the low-pass filter covering the sensor as instructed in the camera manual or continue reading below.
  2. Have the low-pass filter cleaned by authorized Nikon Authorized Service Center
  3. The Nikon D300 and D60 has the ability to clean the sensor* using the "Clean Image Sensor" feature. Please see page 371 in your D300 User's Manual, and page160 in your D60 User's Manual for more information. *Clean Image Sensor may not remove all sensor contamination and additional manual cleaning may be necessary. See page 374 in the D300 manual, and page 162 in the D60 manual for more information.
  4. Fix images with black spots
    Photographs with dust or foreign matter on the low-pass filter can be retouched using the 'Image Dust Off' function available in Nikon Capture 4 or later (available separately) if the image was taken in the NEF format, for more information visit the article on 'How does Image Dust off' work.

the coolant most likely needs changing in the CRTs. Another possibilty is the mirror has become dull. use a damp soft cloth to clean the mirror then dry also clean the CRT lenses . Dont use windex. You will be amazed the difference just polishing the mirror can make in picture quality. Looking into the CRT lenses while they are on will tell you if any groth are present in the CRT coolant chambers.

Canon 30D spots


It's 99% dust, especially if it appears mostly in smaller apertures (<f/8). To test it, select a small aperture (e.g. f/16) and take a photo of a blue sky. The spots will show consistently on the same location.

They're hard to clean, so chances are you just missed them. Try again, or, better still, send it for cleaning to a professional.
