Hi, there is only 1 mirror in your camera. Is it the mirror you see or the focusing screen above it? Not a 'home fix', try getting an on-line quote from any well know repair company like KEH.com or from Canon directly.

One of the mirrors in my d40 camera is scratchef


Any scratches on any mirrors should NOT show up in the pictures, since there are no mirrors in the light path when taking pictures.

The big angled mirror you see when changing lenses flips up out of the way when you take a picture (that's the 'R' in "SLR"). Scratches on it may affect the focusing and exposure metering but will not show up in the pictures.

Scratch on Gold Contact


You can replace the contacts, but a light scratch would not cause a lens communication error. Using your fingernail, push all the contact pins in the mirror box in and out 5-6 times to break any corrossion between the pins and their ciruit board

My pentax k1000 has a black splotch in viewfinder, does not show up in images.


It would depend on exactly where the splotch is. If it's on the outside of the viewfinder, you could simply clean it off with a damp cloth (and maybe some Windex or Formula 409). If the eyepiece is damaged, you can order a replacement part here.

Remove the lens and look at the mirror. If their is something on the mirror, you can carefully clean it. The mirror is very sensitive and vulnerable to scratching. If the reflective coating has been removed then you'll need a new mirror.

Look up at the bottom of the focusing screen. That's the more-or-less clear piece of glass that the mirror will reflect light from the lens onto. If there's a splotch on the outside, you can clean it off.

Those are the parts you can get to. If the splotch is on something on the inside, then you'll have to take the camera to a good camera shop to have a trained professional disassemble and clean it.

I have an internal scratch on my n90s nikon camera


I believe you mean the focusing screen. While this is an interchangeable part on higher-end Nikon cameras, it's not on the N90s. Your local authorized Nikon repair center may be able to replace it, if they can get a spare.
Before repair, bear in mind that the focusing screen will not directly affect any of your pictures. Due to the very nature of a SLR, when you take a picture the mirror flips up next to the focusing screen to let the light from the lens through to the film, bypassing the focusing screen and the rest of the optical viewfinder system. If the scratch isn't very big then while annoying it won't affect camera operation. If the scratch is very large, on the other hand, it may affect the exposure metering and, of course, your viewing.

N70 body clear plastic (flips up and down) has major scratch. Doesn't affect photo, but makes composition difficult when looking through the eyepiece.


Is the focusing screen scratched, or is it the mirror? You can buy a replacement focusing screen for about $25 on eBay. Removing and installing the screen is an easy task that you can do without any tools.

The mirror inside the camera has flipped up and wont stay down I can't see anything through the viewfinder


The ZX-50 does not have a mirror lock up feature so there are several possibilities for the problem. There could be residue on the foam padding where the mirror hits the inside of the camera frame causing it to stick. In this case the foam may need replacing and the inside frame cleaned. Checking with a camera dealer in your area will answer the question in more detail.

I can't get a clear image. there is always a haze!! What can i do?( i have had other photogs try and shoot with it as well to make sure it wasn't just me)


The mirror and/or sensor is probably dirty. Try cleaning the mirror. If you're not sure how to clean the mirror, it's best to take it to a camera dealer who will do it for a fee. The mirror can scratch if you're not using the right camera cleaning equipment and cloth/lint-free lens tissue. So it's best to pay a trained person to do it for you.

Sctratched Lense


Unfortunately, the mirror is part of a larger assembly. Like the D70, the mirror comes with the frame. To replace one, you are probably looking at close to 300$.

That being said, it is unlikely that the scratch will effect photos or performance of the camera

Broken Mirror


you need to see if the lens where the light comes out is scratched..
if it is then the picture will never be right until you replace it..as for a cheap replacement mirror the picture might be watchable if it is a good quality mirror

Scratch appears in photo's


The nice curvy pattern looks like a hair but I supposed it could be something else. Are you sure you've cleaned both the front and back of the lens?
