Question about Samsung Cameras

1 Answer

Hi - I have a Samsung TL100 compact digital camera. I have started seeing "spots" in the photos - like there is dirt on the lens, but I have cleaned the lens carefully and they are still in the image. Any ideas?

    I know the white randomized dots due to flash-on-dust. These are dark spots, same location in image as though there are dust particles or fibers on the lens. But they must be inside the optics? Or on the image sensor (though not sure if that makes sense)? How does one remove these particles other than sending camera back to manufacturer?

Well yes most probably its the dust particle and fungi floating around in the air

Cause: Light from the flash has reflected off dust particles or
insects in the air. This occurs more frequently in the following
conditions:

- When shooting at the wide angle end.
- When shooting with a high aperture value in the aperture-priority
mode.

Solution: This is a phenomenon that occurs with digital cameras and
does not constitute a malfunction
And definately the are not ghost...as speculated by many ghost hunters :)

Canon A530 black spot on LCD which is visible in the photos tried to clean the lensa but was in vain canyou help pls?


A blck spot on your pictures, means there is something blocking light on the sensor. Could be dirt, but more lightly is there has formed some mould.
Because you can't open a compact camera to clean the sensor, I think you can't solve this problem. Opening the camera is no option, because without skills, tools and manual, you won't be able to put the camera together. A repair shop most likely won't start the job, because the repair will cost more than a new camera.
Sorry I can't bring a more positive story.

Why my ST50 Samsung camera cannot work even after battery being charged. If I put on photo taking or video icon it will beep and then it gets turn off. Thanks Helen


It could be a lens error or battery already malfunctioning. Do you get any error message or any message at all before it turns off?

I just bought the canon rebel xs and every picture that I take has a black spot "burned" into the picture. Any suggestions as to what I should do? Or should I just return the camera?


Sounds as if there is a fleck of dirt on the rear lens element. While in the house (to minimize dust and dirt) remove the lens and look at the rear of the lens see if there is dirt there. If so clean it gently with a soft lens cloth not a facial tissue. Reinstall the lens, if the dirt is still in the same spot return the camera because I suspect the dirt is on the sensor and will need to be cleaned.

Dirt smudge inside lens


You did not mention the model of your camera but I assume its a compact camera.

It happened to me once. I opened the camera, strip the cards and cleaned the lens.

But I warn you, its very annoying operation. You need shakeless hands and super focusing abilities. And also it takes time, need patience. Use mild cleaner not strong one. You may use a hand blower, this method is more simple, dont need to go through lens and strip entire cards etc. Just open the back of the camera and look for a cavity to put nozzle through to lens area and cross your fingers than blow it lightly with hoping the dust gone. :)

CAMERA IS THREE MONTHS OLD. ON MY LAST OUTING I NOTICED A PERFECT CIRCLE SPOT ONLY IN SHOTS OF THE SKY. THE SPOT IS IN THE IDENTICAL PLACE ON ALL SKY SHOT PHOTOS NO MATTER WHAT FOCAL LENGHT IS USED. THE...


If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing. However, it's more likely that there's dirt on your CCD. On your camera's menu, select mirror lockup/clean CCD (I can't remember the exact terminology but you get the idea).

After you select that, the mirror will stay up. Remove the lens and you'll see that the CCD is now exposed. Use a blower (don't use your mouth to blow as you will end up with spit in the camera) to clear out any dust/debris on the CCD. Don't touch the CCD.

Turn off the camera and you'll hear the mirror go back down. Re-attach your lens and try some shots.

D50 black spot of photos


Ok, step one - find an appropriate cleaning solution - be it an air blower, like a rocket blower, a pads, alcohol and a qtip, etc. Keep in mind that it's not necessarily true more expensive means better cleaning... but I wouldn't go the dirt cheap route of alcohol and a qtip, though many claim they use it. Personally, I use a blower, but I havn't had anything more than dust thus far...

After that, prep a very clean environment, then take off your lens, and clean your mirror!!! Then when you think it's clean, try your camera again... if you still have spots, then you're going to have to clean the sensor... again, I'd use a blower, especially considering that if you ruin the sensor, you've pretty much ruined your entire camera.

If you STILL have spots, check your lens for dust, both front and back lenses. Still spots? Try another lense entirely (might be scratches). STILL on there? Then you probably have a bad sensor... see warranty information and pray :).

If any of this makes you queasy, look in your phonebook for stores that will offer repair, and try to locate the Nikon-qualified if possible.
