Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Stupidly went to blow dust of the imaging sensor and ended up spitting on the sensor, just a little. Have tried E2 cleaning solution to clean the sensor but the marks from my spit will not go away. Do I need a new sensor and if so roughly how much are we talking?

Well depends, I would take it to a camera shop to rule that out and not mess with it anymore. You looking around $60 for the sensor depending where you live and the shop. But in genral this sensor can be dipped but I would allow them to tell you that as I cannot see the situation with my own eyes to decern how big the damage is to the sensor. Thanks

How can I clean out the inside of my lense?


dont worry about dust too much unless it actually affects your image sensor.check it by pointing to a white wall or sky with f put to it maximum like 32/22 , focus and take pictures.. if its problem with the lens then it will make prominent dark speckles on the image.. but if you get dark speckles even at lower f - stops like 1.4/3.5/5.6 then its dust in the sensor.

dont try cleaning your sensor yourself as you may spoil it and finally have to refer a service center of the brand .

When game cartridge is inserted and NES powered on the TV screen flashes on and off and on and off, etc.


Try cleaning the cartridge with a q-tip dabbed in a little alcohol. And make sure your mouth is very dry (read no spit please) then blow into the console to dislodge any dust. This is what causes most problems in older consoles.


Best of luck

I see a spot on every image taken with my Nikon D70


This is probably dust on the sensor.

You can clean this yourself or you can send the camera to Nikon.

If you want to see what you have to do, search for "nikon d70 sensor cleaning" on the internet.
There are instructions and videos to help.

It involves taking the lens off and locking up the camera mirror using the menu option.
Then either blow it off with a camera blower or clean the sensor with a cotton swab.

I did this myself on my D80, it is not hard but you have to be careful.

Pentax K100D black spot on images


To clean the sensor on the K100D . . .

1) Turn the camera on.
2) Press the "Menu" button.
3) Press the right arrow to the "Set-up" tab.
4) Press the down arrow to the "Sensor Cleaning" item on list.
5) Press the right arrow & follow the on-screen instructions.

And don't touch the sensor with anything. (You will damage the sensor).
And don't blow on the sensor. (You will get your spit on the sensor).
I used one of those old rubber blow bulbs that people used to clean their lenses with before the Lens Pen came along.

Take care & Happing Imaging!

Dust problem


Ive only had my DS for a few weeks, but have changed lenses many times. I havent noticed any dust yet at all in any of the 300 or so images that Ive really taken a good look at. I am pretty careful though -always cover the lenses with the rear cap and fit the lense immediately, always do it in a place "protected" from wind/dust etc (as much as possible). Just like I always did with my non-D SLR. LOL the only time I took any camera to a shop for "cleaning" was when I stupidly blew into the focussing screen to get rid of some dust -I didnt use a blower, but used my mouth...and spat into it by accident :( $20 later it was fine.
