Dark circle in middle of picture

Sometimes when I take a picture (zoomed), there is a small grey spot in the middle of the picture. I can't seem to figure out why that happened and how to get rid of it. Does anyone else have the same problem or can help me?

    I had the same problem - at about 2x zoom to 3,6x I had a small dot at the top of the picture - I tried cleaning the lenses, but that didn't help. Then I thought it was a problem inside the lenses, so I hit them gently few times and the dot is gone. I think that something sticked inside the lenses and by hitting them it got off... Just don't hit it too much ;)

    Thanks for posting. My small spot is almost towards middle of lens/screen. I managed to talk to Panasonic and they told me that it could be some water condensation between the lens. I read in the manual that this could happen when you move the camera from one extreme temperature to another (i.e. from air-conditioned room to outdoor). I try to avoid this and I don't see/notice the spot anymore (so far). Maybe you should take to a service centre and have them check it out, if it doesn't go away after trying this?

I have a small patch of red skin on my face. My doctor told me that it`s a cluster of blood vessels and that it most likely will not go away. I`ve tried covering it with make-up, but sometimes that makes...


Many of the smaller spots and skin lesions of the face are easily removed with lasers. These include small blood vessels on the face, small brown spots or age spots, and freckles and freckle-like spots on the face and elsewhere. To make the blood vessels less noticeable, concealer is your best choice. There are several brands out there, but the one I recommend is Colosé Cream Powder Concealer. It is great for minor skin imperfections and dark circles under the eyes.

Are these flash pictures? Are the spots in different places on each picture? If the answer to both questions is yes, the spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back into the lens.

Having a big yellow spot background in the middle of the picture.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

After changing toner it still has a grey spot in the middle of the page that does not print dark enough


The LED array probably needs cleaning. This is located on the lid that you open when changing the drum/toner and is a dark coloured bar going left-right across the lid. Clean this with a cloth. Also check the opening in the drum where you can see the green cylinder from the top for any small obstructions and remove if necessary. Any obstructions or dirt on the LED will line up with the print defect on the page and should be easy to remove. Be careful not to damage the green cylinder.

What is the difference in metering among multi-segment, spot, and center-weighted?


Multi-segment metering uses 256 segments to measure luminance and color. This data is combined with distance information to calculate the camera exposure. This advanced metering system will accurate worry-free exposures in almost all situations including backlight condition. Spot metering uses a small circle area within the middle of image to calculate the exposure. The spot allows precise exposure measurements of a particular object without being influenced by extremely bright or dark areas within the scene. Center weighted measures light values over the entire image area with emphasis given in the central region. In backlight condition or when the subject is not in the center of image, exposure compensation will be required.
