It sounds as if you have some sort of foreign object somewhere in the optical path. Check the lens for any obvious signs of dirt, but failing that, it will need to go to a camera specialist for a proper clean. I would not recommend taking it apart and trying it yourself!

A black smudge is appearing in the left side of the lcd screen and in my pictures. What is this and can it be fixed?


Hi, It sounds like dirt on the image sensor.
You don't say what camera it is. SLR cameras are fairly sraightforward when it comes to cleaning sensors, Compacts have to go to a service centre.

?Smudge on lens maybe? Shows up in pictures.


Hi!
Does the smudge changes / mooves as you zoom the lens? If so, the smudge is most likely on the focus lens, if not, there's something on the CCD. In both cases the lens will have to be taken apart and cleaned by a professional. I suggest you contact a local repair shop and see how much they ask for it.

White lines on the left side of the screen


well, your camera's LCD has a dead row of pixles you cant fix that, you can try ignoring it, and if yo cant ignore it, then a specialist can probably replace the LCD

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.
