Re: DSC w5 has a spot in every picture

Assuimn there is nothing on the lens[I would not think this is the case as it would not show as a distict spot Not ne fora DIY or a repairshop this is a a failure of the CCD. Depending on the age of the camera and model this may qualify for replacement, as there was a reported CCD issue at one time Either that or Sony may offer a replacement at a good discount.
