Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
When I take a picture and view it on my camera, there's a dark mark on the left side of the picture. It's still there if I upload it onto my computer. I don't see any marks, though, when I look through my viewfinder. I started noticing this problem today; when I used my camera on Monday, May 26, I didn't see this mark on any of my pictures.
(the picture is of a wall, not the sky)
Most likely debris on the ccd as noted earlier, or possibly on the inside facing element of the lens. A true SLR has a mirror that locks up and exposes the film to the light, a DSLR will have a CCD sensor behind the removeble lens that can be cleaned professionally or by the end user but requires special swabs for a wet cleaning. Your case can probably be brushed off with a lens brush that is attached to a bulb that blows air when squeezed. Use the air to puff off the debris and if there are other dust specs, lightly brush off. Some cameras have an ultrasonic CCD cleaner function tthat vibrates off any dust. Yours may or may not have it, check your manual.

Looks like debris on the CCD, maybe a hair. You can either clean it yourself or have it done professionally.
