Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 Digital Camera
I have the same camera and the same problem as I always keep the camera with me in my pocket. The camera can be taken apart and cleaned if you have a clean work space. I would not attempt this if you do not have experience separating electronics with delicate ribbon cables. Wants the camera is apart it is easy to see why this happens as there are several gaps in the lens barrel. If you have patience it can be done but I recommend as much of a dust free environment as possible, some cleaner for a DLSR sensor and some air duster. When I tear my camera down I start with the bottom and work my way to the sides. The most difficult part about separating the camera for me is the top portion of the camera where the zoom control an on off switch is located is attached permanently to the flash and the flash capacitor. This needs to be wiggled with the utmost care and pulled straight up and out of the camera. Once the camera body, sides front and top are separated the LCD screen lifts up and there are a couple of screws that screwed directly into the back of the sensor mounting bracket area once these screws are removed the sensor is easily accessible. Again you do not have experience with not touching anything while you're doing work like this do not attempt this. Once the sensor is pulled up a can be dusted and cleaned my typically blowout the lens barrel with the air duster, obviously making sure that you do not tilt the can because even the slightest residue will set you back even further.

What makes you think you have dust on the sensor? And no, you can't take apart the camera to clean it.
