Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera

Spot on photos

I have a small black spot on my photos that I am assuming is something needing to be cleaned off.  It is not in my lense, as it is there when I switch between different lenses.  I am not sure how to clean the mirror/lense area inside the body.  I don't want to ruin anything.  Can you give me some cleaning tips?

    I have a Nikon D50 and have cleaned the mirrors in the body. I still have black spots in the same area of my photos. I also have switched lenses and have the spots.

I have one as well. I believe it is coming from the flash. See if it only happends with the flash. If so check to see if the flash has some burn areas

Do you see it on the screen as well as on the computer? Then there is something in the camera; dust or debris, and it needs a cleaning. If it is just on the camera screen, there could be a defect on the LCD.

I have small, fuzzy, gray spot in the same place on every photo. Nikon D40.

I would first try to clean the lense. If that does not work, swap lenses and see if it is in fact a problem with the lense or more with the body of your d40.

Spot on my lense and it shows up on my photos.

I doubt it would be a good idea to try to get in there and get rid of the spot yourself.

If it does not affect your photos significantly then leave it be or if you feel you must, have a a professional clean it. ($$$$). Weigh the cost vs. leaving it alone.

D50 black spot of photos

Ok, step one - find an appropriate cleaning solution - be it an air blower, like a rocket blower, a pads, alcohol and a qtip, etc. Keep in mind that it's not necessarily true more expensive means better cleaning... but I wouldn't go the dirt cheap route of alcohol and a qtip, though many claim they use it. Personally, I use a blower, but I havn't had anything more than dust thus far...

After that, prep a very clean environment, then take off your lens, and clean your mirror!!! Then when you think it's clean, try your camera again... if you still have spots, then you're going to have to clean the sensor... again, I'd use a blower, especially considering that if you ruin the sensor, you've pretty much ruined your entire camera.

If you STILL have spots, check your lens for dust, both front and back lenses. Still spots? Try another lense entirely (might be scratches). STILL on there? Then you probably have a bad sensor... see warranty information and pray :).

If any of this makes you queasy, look in your phonebook for stores that will offer repair, and try to locate the Nikon-qualified if possible.

Black spot in screen

Nice picture illustrates the problem very clearly. It seems to be out of focus and as it is recorded on your pics ( as I understand), it must be something in the optics. See if you can peer down the lens at the front of the camera to see it there is something trapped between the lenses. You may need a strong light to do this. Shake the camera (gently) to see if it moves.

Let me know how you get on.
