Jensen back up camera moisture in lens

I would try a blow dryer on low to medium heat. Have someone watch the monitor with the engine off and the ignition on so if the view improves you can stop without over heating the camera behind the lens.

Hi, I have a Pentax K-x and it usually takes great pictures but for the last past 6 months my pictures look like they covered with dust and also i have have a few spots in the left hand corner looks...

Hi there you are right in your place. Its a dust. but you need to clean in different way. because the dust stick in side the lens and its not easily clean by that dust clean option. Some how your camera get moisture and dust stick on it. After drying the moisture that dust permanently stick there. So i suggest you visit a service center and submit your camera for manual cleaning. They use alcohol and cotton so the dust easily clean by them. Thanks.

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature...

Hi Steve, I inform you that the problem only is moisture. Please follow this.
1. Put the camera in sunlight for few hours. After that use it & if you face same problem then
2. You need to visit camera repair shop and they open the camera completely and clean all the inside part of the camera. because you need to clean the moisture inside of lens, viewfinder & sensor too.
So only hope in sunlight. If its solve then fine.

Occasionally, I get a black spot on my pictures. Why?

Before testing your sensor look at and clean the front element of your lens or lenses, clean with the proper lens cloth don't use liquid lens cleaner instead just huff on the lens to create a little moisture and clean off with the lens cloth. That's a lens cloth not tissue, also remove the lens and keep teh camera body mount facing down so not dirty falls into the cavity and ot put the body cap on.

Check the lens rear element for dirt partials and remove carefully if there is, remove body cap and install the lens back onto the camera.

Next I'm going to give you a quick test method to actually see if your camera sensor is dirty.

On a good clear day with blue sky go outside switch the camera to "P" program focus on a subject at infinity then shift the lens to manual focus. Point the lens skyward to a clear patch of blue and take the picture(s) Now down load this picture to your computer and enlarge it to at least 50% I use 100% but I'm way fussy and my prints can go to poster size so i need clean/

Anyway look closely at that blue sky if you see spots of black then the sensor is dirty and needs to be cleaned by you or a professional. There are special kits for cleaning sensors on the market BUT, make sure you are confident it what you are doing because the sensor is extremely sensitive to damage. Read your manual on this cleaning function.

Whiteout on fujifilm f20. how do I remove the lens?

Firstly, to isolate the shutter as the problem, turn the camera on and the flash off. put the lens into full optical (not digital) zoom. Then turn the camera lens to face you and look at the lens and take a picture.
With the camera in full optical zoom the shutter assembly will be right up to the outer lens so you can see it clearly. When the button is pressed you should see the shutter fire across the lens inside. It should cover the lens completely. If it does not or doesn't fire at all then you get over exposed pictures or lines across the photo. The most likely cause for this is moisture residue on the shutter leafs sticking them together.
To clean you will need to strip the lens down almost completely to access the shutter assembly. If this model of camera uses a sealed shutter unit then it will be impossible to clean. The only models i have found so far that use a sealed unit are the F460 and F470. Yours I am not sure of as I haven't opened 1 up but the solution for most is to strip it down and clean.
Tip: use another camera to photograph each stage to help on re assembly

Picture on viewfinder is blurred Everything in my viewfinder is blurred, even the numbers and stuff in there. The picture I take isn't blurred.

I think your camera has a diopter adjustment. If it does, it'll be located on the right side of the eyepiece. It's a small wheel with a + and -. Adjust that until the image is clear.
It's possible that it is in need of cleaning. If you plan to remove the focusing screen, be exceptionally careful not to scratch it. Has it been subjected to extreme moisture conditions?

Blurred pictures

If it's from moisture then once that dries out it will clear up. Otherwise if it doesn't then you will have to send it into repairs and they can clean the internal lens for you.
