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

    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 ?

My panasonic Lumix DMC-ZX1 shows 3 dark spots and 2 hairs on all pictures. When I zoom-in the dirt is more visible and when I zoom-uit I dont see the hairs any more and the dark spots appear wider and...


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.

The !AE error messsage and a yellow !camera image appears on the camera screen and pictures are horribly blurry. How can this be fixed?


if this is a slr camera ensure the lens is fitted correctly or that the connectors on the lens and body of camera are clean.

also try changing setting out of AE "apature priority" to another setting such as auto, the indication could mean that the place where the photo is being taken is too dark and that the apature setting for the speed set is too small for a decent image. and the apatures needs to be open further or the shutter speed needs to be slower or the IOS/ASA needs to be raised. to stop bluring at slower shutter speeds or in dark areas it is advised to use a tripod or other sability device.

I hope this was useful.

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?

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.

Black blob appears on display screen and the background is white


This usually means that the liquid crystal has been broken in that section. Usually caused by something poking or pressing on that section of the screen. The only solution is to have it repaired or replace the camera. I'd get an estimate from an authorized repair shop or Samsung directly, and then weigh the options against buying a new camera, buying a working used one, or paying for the repair.

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.
