Question about Kodak EasyShare DX6340 Zoom Digital Camera

Spot on digital camera lens

The camera was dropped in water and after drying out works perfectly, but there is a spot on all photos and a spot can be seen when looking through the camera lens. This happened some months ago.Is it possible to remove the zoom lens to clean the rear lens? It is felt that if the lens can be removed then the spot could be removed from the rear lens and the camera would be as good as new.

    Camera lens not working. I want to divert it into a digital camera if possible & need Bangladesh service center address.

    A few months ago I noticed a small shadow on my display screen, which also appears on my photos. I tapped the camera in my palm and it disappeared. The spot has reappeared and it's in the same location. I have cleaned the lens, so I don't believe it is on the lens. I think it might be inside the camera. I tried tapping in my palm again, but nothing has happened this time.

No. You can't take the lense apart for the cleaning by yourself. Any expert pro camera repairer will do the job

My Panisonic Lumix was dropped in the lake in its case last summer. I dried it out and it still works great. The only thing is now when I take photos of things that are dark like night time photos or a...

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.

Wife fell in while canoeing camera dried out ok spot in inside of lens

Sounds like a dried water spot. There's nothing you can do about it on your own. You could send it to a Kodak service center but it will be expensive.

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.

Bubbles in the photos

Hope the problem is not with the sensor. First try cleaning the lens with a clean dry cloth. If you can't get a microfiber cloth, use a clean cotton cloth. If you can still see some smears on the lens, put two drops of lens cleaning solution on the cloth and wipe carefully.
If you still find these bubbles, take the camera immediately to an authorized service center.

Water spot inside the lens on my Lumix camera

DON'T EVEN TRY TO TAKE THE LENS OFF!!!

To take the lens off, the camera has to be dismantled, and unless you are an experienced technician, there is a 95% chance that the camera will have more problems than what it started with.

Have you taken any pictures with the water spot inside the lens? If it is visible in pictures, then you have several options:

1. Ignore it.

2. Leave it there and use an image editor to clone out the spot in the picture. (Recommended).

3. Take the camera to a repair shop, or mail it to Panasonic's service center. This is the expensive option, to remove the water spot, the price most likely will be well over $100.

4. Buy another camera. The FZ7 is rated to about 50,000 shots, so if you are approaching this number they it may well be worth it to just get another camera.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Unless the spot is seriously affecting your pictures, then leave it there. By having the camera opened there is a high chance that other problems will be introduced, such as: fingerprints,dust or hairs inside the lens or misaligned lens elements.

My FZ7's lens is full of dust, yet this is not usually visible in pictures, when it is, I can usually remove it on the computer.

I would recommend taking the camera to a service center as a last resort.

1 round fog spot on photos

mm i have a canon powershot s5 is and i dropped it in the mall one day then turned it on and had this little black squiggly on every photo, and i cleaned it and everything and it wouldnt come off, so i thought i would have to have it professionally cleaned, (which [by the way] i think you should try) but then this girl accidently dropped it again and i turned it on and the squiggly disappeared so i dont know if that helps you or not but you should try having it professionally cleaned, it might cost a bit though, good luck, cheers.
