This is highly suggestive of faulty CCD sensor. Unfortunately, repair would be more expensive than buying a new camera.You could read more about CCD sensor from :-

CCD sensor is responsible for capturing the images to your camera.

Hope i helped you.

Why does the high limit switch keep tripping

You don't have specifics on the Dryer model. High limit is likely for a temperature being too high, which can lead to damage to the dryer or your clothes, or even to fire.

First and foremost, do NOT work on anything outside of the control panel or drum interior without unplugging the dryer. It almost certainly has a high current, 3-phase power inlet, and you can kill yourself coming into contact with the live power for it. Don't do that!

Most straightforward - look at the vent line. If it's clogged with lint, clean it out, both at the dryer end, and, if possible, for the rest of the line. You'll likely need a flat blade screwdriver to disconnect the vent hose on both the dryer and wall side. Take the vent line outside stretch it out, bang or hand-remove any lint sticking to it. (Stretching will help a lot in getting lint out of squeeze spots in the line.) Wear a dust mask to save yourself a lot of coughing when cleaning stuff.

if the vent is run under your house, go to the outside vent outlet and make sure it's not blocked or clogged.

Complementary to the vent line, clean out any tangible lint in the outlet hole area in the back of the dryer.

Past that point, my experience on the overheat goes a couple of places, all of which involve opening up the back. I'd suggest finding a DIY for your model to cut down on searching for screws. You'll likely have a bunch of 1/4" hex-head screws, which fortunately are the size of just about every hex-bit screwdriver set ever made - just put the hex end of the screwdriver on the head and it'll likely fit.

Inside, you'll open up the top of the blower unit. You will likely find it's clogged with lint, making the air pull anemic. Clean all the lint out of here. There are temperature sensors / cutouts. You'll need a DIY to locate which is which, and likely a voltmeter to test them. Last up-top possibility. Look inside the heater unit. It'll likely be a flat sheet-metal assembly on the right. If it's a gas unit, I'm out of my experience. If it's an electric unit, the heater coils are inside. They are likely covered in lint and laundry room dust. Use a long bottle brush to brush them off, or blow them off with compressed air. (Dust maskt!) A vacuum cleaner crevice tool can be useful. If they're covered in dust, they don't transfer heat to the air well, and can just overheat when the passing air doesn't carry the heat away.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Black spot on pictures - cleaned lenses and inside

The spots can be in the inside of the lens settings to the CCD/imager.
If the cleaning of the lens is done well it can be a speck of dust logged in to the screen and having it on the image.
A careful cleaning in a dust proof set up is required.

How do I get rid of tiny spots that are appearing on my images?

Dark spots are usually the result of dust or dirt on the lens. If a simple soft bristle brush (1/8" wide paint brush is ideal) can't dislodge the debris, you should purchase a lens cleaning kit available from camera stores. They run about $10. These are great to removing these and other contaminants such as finger prints, smudges, etc. High end lenses have special optical coatings and the special cleaning fluid included won't leave a residue - or damage the coatings.

If the spots are bright or colored, (or dark after cleaning above) the electronic sensor inside the camera has a "hot" or "stuck" pixel. This problem is usually not worth fixing due to cost.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

Canon power shot sd1000 black dot on lens

If by saying the upper right corner of the lens you really mean that there is a dark spot on each image AND the rear display, there may be dirt or dust on the lens itself. Clean the lens with an optical quality cleaner. Do not use paper towels and Windex or the like - as paper towels can scratch the lens.

It is also possible that the dark spot is a "stuck pixel" on the image sensor inside the camera. There is no way to repair a stuck pixel outside of replacing the sensor. Any dark spot (regardless of source) can be edited out by using image editing software. This will allow you to to make the dark spot less noticeable - or practically invisible.

If the dark spot is on the rear display only, it can also be a result of a "stuck pixel" on the display itself. This should not show up an images, but only on the display. There is little that can be done outside of replacing the entire rear screen.

There are other things that can cause these problems, but those listed above are the most common.

I hope this was Very Helpful and good luck!

Spots on image when using built-in Speedlight flash

As is common in many compact digital cameras where the built-in flash is very close to the lens strange reflections can appear in images under certain conditions. Particulate matter in the air in front of the lens (between the camera and subject) such as water vapor (as in a cloudy day), smoke, dust or other items can reflect light directly into the lens causing neutral colored white/grey semi-transparent spots to appear in the image. In extreme examples there may be many of these spots in an image or there may be only one per image. Also, since these spots are completely random they will move or disappear from image to image. For example, if two images are shot consecutively with the same camera settings one image may have spots while the other is clean. To avoid these spots: When possible, avoid photographing in smoky, dust, or cloudy areas Do not use the camera's flash in locations such as above Use an external Speedlight flash if a flash is needed Review images on the camera and re-shoot if spots are visible Cleaning the lens will not have an effect on these spots, as the particles that cause this are not on the lens itself.
