Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Dark spot I took a series of pictures in November and there was a fuzzy circular dark area at the same place in each of the pictures. I took another series last week and had the same problem, though the dark area was in a different place to the November series.

    I get the same dark spots, but only when taking pics in bright light. In darker settings or with the flash there is no problem.

    I think my spot is there most of the time, but it's at it's most obvious in a bright light. Heard of someone else with a similar problem. Unfortunately Sony charge more than the camera (which is 2 yrs old) is worth for a repair.

  • Mike Pea Feb 25, 2008

    Definitely not my finger! I can even see the spot on the viewfinder both before and after I take the picture. It's quite a small spot, maybe around the size of the sun if you took a picture facing the sun.

    I know it sound weird but are you sure its not your finger in the way. several folks have admitted that the reflection from finger is causing this. as the lens is close to the edge its easy to do.

    oh well that likely means its one of the inside lenses, micro-bug turd or a bit of moisture that had some debris settled within.
    it may move around according to the zoom you use.
    it is very difficult to open this camera to clean anything.

Dark spots on pictures loaded on to the computer


If the spots appear in the same place in each picture, then you have dust on your sensor. Google the words "how to clean a DSLR sensor". You will find sites explaining the procedure with pictures and where you can get the supplies. You can do this yourself...it's easy.

There is a large dark spot in the lower center portion of the projection area, I have cleaned the external lense and changed the bulb but the dark image remains.


if the spot is circular, check the lamp itself. if it has a flatter edge, chances are your light tunnel has collapsed and needs replaceing. it's not that old, so dell might repair it. but they might replace the entire optical engine, as they may not sell individual parts.

Smudge on pictures


Yes, if you have used different lenses and a smudge still appears (in the same place) there may be something on your sensor. Have you cleaned or touched the sensor in the past? Typically sensors only get dust (shows up as small fuzzy dark spots) on the sensor, not smudges.

Spots on screen


Youlikely have dust inside the optical block on the LCD panels. Cleaning the panels is a tricky job and just shooting compressed air into the block will only redistribute the dust. A qualified tech can disassemle the block and clean the panels

The picture shows dark


Hi there

Take out the Projector's lamp and check for any black marks ( almost looks like veins ) on the inside of the bulb.

If you spot anything on the lamp , your lamp will need replacement.

If you can't see anything - then you might be in for a new Mainboard.

Very expensive exercise !

If it's a circular area you might be delaing with magnetism. Check the menu and there should be a control for geomagnetic correction and adjust accordingly.

One of the pictures has a great blue sky but the green tree is very dark and the other one has the green tree and very bright sky?


The two pictures were shot at dramatically different exposures - the "dark" one at 1/1600 shutter speed, f7.3, the "light" one at 1/320 shutter speed, f4.0. This accounts for the great difference, as the exposure conditions for the "light" one allowed much more light into the image during the exposure period. You didn't tell the whole story of how you set this up, I think you were shooting in a "spot" metering mode, where the particular exposure conditions the camera uses would vary considerably whether you were aiming at a dark area (making the picture light) or a light area (making the picture dark). I would make two recommendations: Switch your metering mode to "center weighted" (the mode labeled "[(•)]"), and also change your ISO setting to AUTO, as there would be no reason for shooting these photos at ISO 200 that I can think of.
