How to clean image sensor?

Follow the instructions in "The Low-Pass Filter" section of the manual (page 125 in my copy).Despite the warning never to touch or wipe the filter, if you're feeling brave you can use a good sensor-cleaning kit to remove stubborn matter. Any good camera store should be able to sell you a proper sensor-cleaning kit. (By "proper" I mean something better than Windex and a cotton swab.)

Spots on my photos

Try cleaning the low-pass filter in front of the sensor, as described in "The Low-Pass Filter" section of the manual (page 105 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download one here.

Blurry spot on bottom left of picture

It sound like you have some dust particles or a smudge spot on the CCD screen (actually on the low-pass filter in front of image chip). To leave an image on CCD, the dusts must be closer to the image plane to be registered so it should be somewhere closer to the screen or right on it. Take a look at the screen with "CCD Clean" mode and blow out any dust. If the smudge is on the screen, I recomend trained tech should clean it. good luck. For further assistance by email, go to

Nikon D60 newbie : colour distortion / large smudge in photos

D-SLR cameras are designed to be used with interchangeable lenses and foreign matter may enter the camera when lenses are changed. Once inside the camera, this foreign matter may adhere to the sensor, where it may appear in photographs taken under certain conditions. To prevent foreign matter from entering the camera
  • do not change lenses in dusty environments
  • point the camera down when changing lenses.

To protect the camera when no lens is in place be sure to thread on the body cap provided with the camera, being careful to first remove all dust and other foreign matter that may be adhering to the body cap.
Remove foreign matter from low-pass filter
  1. Clean the low-pass filter covering the sensor as instructed in the camera manual or continue reading below.
  2. Have the low-pass filter cleaned by authorized Nikon Authorized Service Center
  3. The Nikon D300 and D60 has the ability to clean the sensor* using the "Clean Image Sensor" feature. Please see page 371 in your D300 User's Manual, and page160 in your D60 User's Manual for more information. *Clean Image Sensor may not remove all sensor contamination and additional manual cleaning may be necessary. See page 374 in the D300 manual, and page 162 in the D60 manual for more information.
  4. Fix images with black spots
    Photographs with dust or foreign matter on the low-pass filter can be retouched using the 'Image Dust Off' function available in Nikon Capture 4 or later (available separately) if the image was taken in the NEF format, for more information visit the article on 'How does Image Dust off' work.

When shooting with the D70 I get bright pink, yellow, and green in the bright areas. So far I have: -changed CF Card -changed battery -presses reset camera button -reset custom menu -checked hue...

there may be some dust particles on your low pass filter .To check this have a fully charged battery in your camera .switch on the mirror lock up to on from the menu exit menu and press the shutter now remove the lens and inspect and blow any dust on the low pass filter with a blower brush donot attempt to clean yourself with cotton or any cloth as it may damage that low pass filter reattatch the lens and shoot .Hope this might solve your problem if not have your camera's ccd checked for any dust on it by a professional.

D100 shows small spot on pictures

Sounds like a spec of dust on your low-pass filter in front of the CCD in the camera. You could bring it to a shop for cleaning (probably about $30) or buy Nikon's EH-5 AC adapter that will allow you to lock up the mirror and expose the filter behind it and blow it off with some canned air. Should be regular maintenance if you use the camera regularly. Good reason to limit the amount of time the lens is off the camera body.

Dust inside my d200

The view finder and focusing screen are separate from the CCD sensor. The mirror reflects the image to the view finder until you take a picture. Then the mirror goes up, the shutter opens to expose the CCD to capture the image.

If you have a lot of dust, you should look into a cleaning kit, or have it professionally cleaned. This will show up on your images as white and/or black specks.

Dust on Canon 350D

I have some real experience of finding dusts and even moulds in-between the Low Pass Filter and the CMOS. So no matter how you "clean" the sensor "surface", the things inside are not affected. Very tedious you have to take out the CMOS and open up the Low Pass Filter to clean them. Nothing high-tech!
