Spots of faded color in my pictures

Have had this camera for a few years now & we love it! However, recently there are two spots that show up in the same place on all pictures that have faded color. It's really noticable. Any idea what is wrong with it or how to fix it?
Thanks,
Kathy

Hello Kathy, The problem Sounds like a faulty CCD unit, The only other reason would be scratches on the lens that you would be able to see.
Either way it will be quite costly on a DX6490 camera. you may be better off selling yours for parts and buying another DX6490 in good working order so you can still use your accessories such as,battery,charger,memory card etc.I have several nice ones for sale.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,Russell hounddogellie@gmail.com

SOURCE: spots inside lense

Your lens needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled. It should only be done by a certified camera repair shop. It isn't something that you should try to do yourself. It will not be very expensive to have this done, probably in the neighborhood of $50.00.

If these spots are in different places on each picture, then they are actually reflections of dust particles in the air from the flash being so close to the lens. If they are in the same place on each picture, then they are indeed water spots on the lens.

My Canon Powershot SD880 sometimes takes pictures that have 'ghosts' or litter spots throughout the picture. This happens more often in dark settings and at night. Any ideas?


This is normal behavior when shooting in low light. Just like when someone is speaking softly into the phone, you may turn up the volume on your end. Any background noise, you can now hear more.

Similarly, when there is low light, the camera turns up the amplification on each pixel. Some pixels naturally have a bit more background noise than others, and these show up as bright spots. A higher ISO setting where the camera is more responsive to light is where this occurs.

At a high ISO, taking a picture of pure black shows up as a mottled grey with a few bright spots for pixels that have a lot of noise.

You can overcome this if you have a tripod - set the camera to manual and a use a lower ISO setting. Rotat the selection wheel to M for manual and then press the ISO (just above the function set) button to scroll through different ISO settings.

Photoshop and other programs have noise reduction tools and a tools to remove "hot" spots as well.

Dark spots on my sensor


Are you talking about spots you see on the pictures? Are these spots you see in the same place on all the pictures? If you really want to see if your sensor is dirty pick a clear day with a great blue sky focus to infinity and then shift the lens to manual focus and the program to "P" take a pitch of the blue sky. Then down load this picture to the computer and open it up to 100% and look it over if there are spots then the sensor should be cleaned. Even if you take the lens off and look into the camera body you still can't see the sensor all you are looking at is the mirror inside the prism box.
To clean the sensor you need to put the camera into "clean" mode which locks the mirror up. It may be possible you just have a dirty lens or UV filter.

Hello Sir or Madam, My wife has recently taken pictures and most of her pictures have white spots in them, does this mean that my digital camera is defective?


Do the spots only occur when taking flash pictures and do the spots look like "soap bubbles" and appear in different places in each picture? If so, these are dust particles reflecting the flash back into the lens. It's a problem with all point and shoot cameras because the flash is so close to the lens.

White cloudy spots on my images - a recent problem


If these are like "bubble" spots and they appear in different places on each photo, I'm guessing you're shooting flash pictures indoors. The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This happens on small point-and -shoots because the flash is almost in the same plane as the lens.

Grainy, Spot Filled Images when using Manual Modes Only


It sounds like the aperture is getting set very high. If the aperture is a high number, the lens opening is very small which lets less light in and would cause a dark image. This would also show any dust that is in or on the lens or image sensor. The dust doesn't usually show on apertures with a larger opening (smaller number). Make sure your aperture is being set to a reasonable number, probably no higher than 8 or so.

those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.

Color wrong and red spots


Sounds like CCD sensor problem . It starts with 'noisy' pictures ( colors not true and resolution deteriorates )but eventually the sensor stops outputting anything and you end up with blank screen. Have the sensor replaced and camera will work fine.
