This is what is called a "Hot pixel" and it is on the sensor itself, not on the lens. It is an "electrical" anomaly on the sensor. If the camera has a sensor or "pixel cleaning" mode, you can try that, otherwise it can be replaced under warranty, or fixed by Canon... otherwise the other option is to have a graphics program run a batch file to remove the result of the pixel with each image... you would need photoshop or something else fairly high end to use batch editing modes.

Spots on the display screen


Still not clear, what you mean. But take care wham cleaning a lens. Never use a fluid like alcohol. Use a special lens pen or the soft brush on the other side of a lens pen, when you think the lens is dirty. Spots, or disk, also can appear when light is entering the lens from an angle. Even the expensive Fuji X10, had orbs or disks on the pictures in certain situations. Like dark with one or a few sharp lights close bye. Try the camera in different situations, to make sure the phenomena is in the camera or just a strange rare occasion.
When it is caused by a defect in the camera, it should show on every picture.

Intermittent blanking on pictures displayed


There's nothing wrong. The blinking areas are blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that the camera thinks are overexposed.
While viewing the picture, press cursor-up/down to cycle through the different views of your picture.

When capturing picture in open-air at time of night.... my dmc f3 cam shows spots in picture spots if dust particles present in the air which spoil the look of picture :( plz help


If these are flash pictures, you are experiencing dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back into the camera lens. This is a problem with point and shoot cameras because the flash is so close to the lens.

When I look through the viewfinder, it shows up as a circle instead of a rectangle showing the whole view, no matter what lens i put on it, but when the lens is off, it shows up as a full rectangle, whats...


What you are seeing is the focus spot or indicator and it's etched into the mirror so yes you will see this prominently without a lens and considerably sharper with a lens. The square box would be for the light meter and the round circle is your focus point. Nothing is wrong, in fact you can change the focus point on the camera. There is actually 45 focus points 7 which are in the center you need to be able to see these to know where to aim/point the center of the camera.

Spots and smudges


The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back to the camera because the flash is so close to the lens. This is a problem with all point and shoot cameras...some more than others.

Spots on image


Hi,

The 28-135 zoom lens has at some point had moisture inside it. These spots that you can see are dried water marks.

You have to take the lens apart and clean the lens with a class cloth.

Alternatively you can take the lens to a specialist service center to be professionally cleaned.



Regards.

Screen is Blank..


A sudden jolt like that can damage the working parts of the lens, and or the internal connections. What can happen is that the small connectors can become unhooked and lose conductivity. If that happens, then you various controls or all controls will quit.
Because the screen is blank or black, it could also mean that the LCD is broken.
