I have a dark blob appearing on photos,no matter which lens I use. I have also cleaned the inner lens, does this mean somethig has got inside the camera? Will it be a pricey repair?

    Thank you so much.

    I am pathetically incompetent when it comes to my camera, so I will search for a good camera repair near me, not easy when you live in the back of beyond

    Thank you again

Sounds like you have your "blob" on the actual CCD sensor in the camera. There are special "cleaning kits" to remove dust etc. from the sensors without damaging them. I would not suggest trying a "home-brewed" system of cotton swabs, isoporpyl alcohol, and a can of compressed air, unless you were very well versed in this operation. A scratch on the sensor will ruin the camera. Have a qualified shop do it, or buy the sensor cleaner kit, if you want to be safe.

How to take the lens of my nikon L25


From a look at the spec, neither the lens nor the back of the camera can be removed except by qualified technicians. Have you tried your local camera repairer ?

Viewsonic 5132 dust blobs


Most likely your DMD chip has dust or hair on it. You can try blowing it out with compressed air but the best thing is to tear down and clean the dmd chip itself. Very carefully. Here is a video of a similar unit. SO far all the DMD projectors I have worked on have had a very similar set up. Take pictures as you go.

Bubbles are projected on the screen


I am assuming that the "bubbles" are most prominant when the picture is dark. If that is the case, it is most commonly referred to as dust "blobs". Dust particles get on the lens assembly inside the projector and are just out of focus so they appear as blobs or bubbles. If you can carefully remove the cover and gently blow out the lens / color wheel area with compressed air it should reduce the "bubble" effect. I would not recomend any further dissasembly as it is complex and time consuming and unless your very careful, could end in disaster. Don't forget to clean the air filters either.

A blob is appearing on every frame could that be dirt on the sensor? If it is dirt on the sensor, how do I clean it?


First of all, you can't get to the sensor to clean it. Is the blob in the same place on each picture? Is your lens clean? Does the blob actually appear on prints you make?

You have to know the MODE your camera is in. If you have it in the wrong mode you may not be able to take a photo in some conditions. You typically cannot take a photo of the moon on any auto setting the moon will be a white blob. The moon almost has to be taken manually.

Tiny black dots and a hairline mark now appear on all my photos using a Nikon D40


You might have to have your sensor cleaned. When the camera body is exposed to excessive amount of dust they can get in the mirror housing. When the shutter opens and the mirror flips out the way when a photo is taken, it aggitates the dust then it falls on the sensor. It will need to professionally cleaned by a repair technician.

To test it is dust, take a few photos of a white wall at aperture f22 with the flash on and if they are all consistant that is problem. They will look like soft black blobs.

Vp800 LCD Projector has dark blob on display.


blow out any dust with canned air. chances are there is an object blocking the image. or there is a crack or burn spot on the 2nd fly-eye lens (diffuser). the first one is right next to the lamp (if you remove the lamp, you'll see it). the second is right on the other side of it.

Hi, It appears there is a small amount of fungus inside my lens, and when taking a picture, it comes back very dark. What would a possible remedy be for this? Many thanks Jon


This is actually a very common situation for older lenses. You should take the lens to a trained technician and have them clean the inner elements of the lens. Often times they can, if the fungus isn't too bad. In extreme situations, they will need to replace the element itself.
