Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

Dust particle inside lens

I've had my camera for about 7 months now and I absolutely love it. Recently I noticed that there was a darkened spot in the display which I figured must be in the lens because when I zoom in, the spot gets darker. I cleaned the outer part of the lens with a soft lens cloth, but that didn't help so I know definitely the problem lies inside the lens. Can you help me please? Thanks LK.

    Camera shop says I have dust inside the W55 lens. Would buying a broken camera with a clean lens be easy to replace? Pattern of smudge on pic at full zoom.

It could be some dust particle on the lens to a faulty sensor. Check the lens if you can spot any abnormality on it and if not, please get it serviced.

Hello Sir or Madam, My wife has recently taken pictures and most of her pictures have white spots in them, does this mean that my digital camera is defective?


Do the spots only occur when taking flash pictures and do the spots look like "soap bubbles" and appear in different places in each picture? If so, these are dust particles reflecting the flash back into the lens. It's a problem with all point and shoot cameras because the flash is so close to the lens.

How do I clean dust inside the camera? I noticed some splotches on my photos, then looked closely at the lens and it appears there is dust on the inside of the lens.


You can't clean inside the camera. Dust inside the lens would be so out of focus, it wouldn't register on your pics unless the particle was huge. Do these splotches only happen in your flash pictures?

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.

White cloudy spots on my images - a recent problem


If these are like "bubble" spots and they appear in different places on each photo, I'm guessing you're shooting flash pictures indoors. The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This happens on small point-and -shoots because the flash is almost in the same plane as the lens.

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The gray spots are caused by dust on your lens, very easy to clean.

Power down the TV.

If you open the right side access panel (right side as you are looking at the front of the TV) you can see it in the middle, it's not very big. Using a scratch/lint free cloth, gently wipe off the lens or use a vacuum to **** up the dust being careful not to actually touch the lens.

Replace the access panel and enjoy your spot free screen.

If the dark spot is not focused, it could be on the sensor. Otherwise, check the lens for any dust particles. If you can't find any dust, take the camera to an authorized service center.

Help, White spots on photos with W1


Could be dust reflecting the flash. Water droplets also do it. Here's an example from an indoor trials where they had little RC cars on a dirt track next to the trials. The RC cars kicked up dust. The flash just bounced off the particles. This is an 828 with a Metz flash with a pocket bounce/diffuser on top. With the smaller camera with the flash more on axis of the lens the effect will be more pronounced since closer dust particles will be illuminated.
