Debris Within the Lens Body

Sirs, Hello. I am in Iraq and apparently there is a little hair and dot inside the lens. Everytime I take a pic, it is in the same spot within the picture. I have cleaned the outside of the lens, but it is somewhere within the camera. Do you recommend a place I can ship it to get the camera cleaned, or is it worth it?
Thanks for your assistance.

Regards from Iraq,

Federico

The dust you describe is likely to be on the sensor (more acurately the filter in front of the sensor) not in the lens, otherwise it would not appear as hair and dust spots.

If the camera you are using is a digital SLR camera, you can clean the sensor filter. This is one of many websites that provide useful information on sensor cleaning.

What is F EEon the LCD screen?


You're apparently using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn the ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If it has a lock, lock it. You can then control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as on a lens without an aperture ring.

Dear sirs; What type of uv filter fits a quantarary tech 10 28mm - 200mm zoom lens. I have several 62mm filters and the zoom lens does not accept the normal threaded screw on format common to lenses


First, make sure that the lens diameter is 62mm. It should say on the front or on the body of the lens. If this is correct, it could be a unique mount that would require a specific brand. If it's quantaray, it might require quantaray filters. If it's an old lens, it might require an attachment to the front of the lens that would act as a filter holder for the square filter tiles.

My d80 is flashing fee and wont take no pics


You're apparently using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn the ring to its smallest opening (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.
If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post specifying the lens(es) you're using.

My Nikon D90 has started to shoot images with what appears to be hair in lens, Switched lense to Macro and hair is still there It is always in varying shapes, so to speak But is ruining my images It...


If you switch lenses and the hair is still appearing on your pictures, it is quite possible you have an actual hair or thread or something located in the camera body in the way of the sensor. Remove your lens and visually examine the inside of the body for debris. Stay clear of the sensor and the mirror, but you can use tweezers to remove an obvious foreign object. You can also command your mirror to stay up and out of the way (see the camera setup menu "mirror lock up") for closer examination. It's best to use a bulb type squeeze blower to blow out debris from inside the camera. Do an internet search on "rocket air blower" and you'll see what I mean. Blowing air from your mouth can introduce moisture.

Hello hemantp. This error code in this model indicates that the lens electrical contacts are dirty or slightly oxidized. To clean them you will need a common pencil with a clean eraser on the end and a lens cloth.

Detach the lens from the camera and hold it so that the lens' gold contacts are pointing down. Lightly "erase" their exposed surfaces and then clean them with the lens cloth to remove any debris.

Do the same with the gold contacts inside the camera body. Although this is a wee bit more challenging, you can do it by holding the camera so that the lens opening points down. That way no debris will fall inside as you clean. Joe

How can I clean the INSIDE of a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 lens?


Unscrew the entire lens assembly from the body. The inner lens cannot get debris inside it but the outside of it and the inside of the protector lens can. It's a good idea to do this cleaning in your bathroom with the shower on hot but not visibly steamy as this will cut the airborne dust by 90%.

Camera lens won't come out and it beeps three times.


hi...
The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u
rate me!!!

the lens contacts are dirty - get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them. Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I've used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.
Works well for me....let me know how you fair!

Black particles on focusingscreen


If the specks are just on your viewfinder focussing screen, they won't be on your pics. If they're on both your pics and focussing screen, you need to find someone else to clean your camera. Cleaning either your CCD sensor or your screen yourself can leave scratches. Changing lenses often can suck dust into the inside if the body is dusty. Try another repair shop for thorough cleaning - it shouldn't cost more than $50.
