Red specks on screen always in the same spot

It acts as though the lens has dust on it but it is clean. I think it has dust on the backside of the lens. Is there any way to clean or blow that dust out? Dave in Ft Myers

You can take the projector apart and carefully clean the backside of the lens.

Spots on screen with epson moviemate25

This sounds like a common 'Dust Blob' issue. Dust can accumulate on the LCDs or inside of the lens. You can sometimes take them apart, and use compressed air to clean the lens and LCDs.

How could I clean camera lens? The problem is I see a speck of dust in all my shots. Could I dismount the camera? Many thanks for your help.

the lens does not come off of that camcorder easily. if the dust is on the outside just use a little windex (spray the cloth, not the lense) and wife in a circular motion. If the dust spot (maybe its not dust). is on the inside you will have to have the lens taken off by a professional.

Hi Camera has a black spot on screen. It is not on the photos. It does not zoom up. But stays the same size in the same spot. I think the LCD Screen must have a crack in it from the inside. Is this...

It's likely that the spot is a speck of dust that has found its way inside the camera and onto the sensor. Apparently when the lens barrel extends after the camera is turned on a small amount of suction is generated - enough to pull tiny specks of debris inside. Please refer to the following video:

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.

Pentax SMC D 16-45 Lens How to clean inside? Pictures are showing spots and all the outside lens have been cleaned along with the inside of the camera itself. Can not see the spots when taking pics only...

Your lens would need to be absolutely filthy with enormous dirt specks to cause the fault you describe. Dust, fingerprints, and regular minor debris simply doesn't show in the final image. In any case, you cannot clean inside the lens without dismantling it and that is a job for experienced specialists only.

Your fault is a dirty image sensor. You can buy sensor cleaning kits, but if you're inexperienced with them or trying to clean the sensor in a dusty environment you'll just make matters worse. Many camera shops offer sensor cleaning while you wait at relatively low cost. The reason you don't see the dirt when taking the picture is either because you're looking through the optical viewfinder or because the LCD screen simply doesn't magnify the image enough to show the marks which are present in the image.

You can prevent the dirt from reoccurring by never leaving the camera with the lens throat open for more than strictly necessary, and by always trying to keep the open lens throat pointing slightly down when swapping lenses.

I hope that I've helped, please take a moment to rate my answer.

There's some dust spots in my pictures with my Nikon D80. I have sent it for sensor cleaning at Nikon centre but seems that the spots cannot be removed as the technician says it's hidden underneath/behind...

I think the problem is with the technician. I suggest you talk to the manager and ask for another technician to help you with this problem. I do not recommend trying to clean the sensor yourself as you may cause more harm than good.

Dirt speck

It is probably a speck of dust on the sensor. Get a blower from any camera shop, remove the lens,lock up the mirror (mirror lock up in camera menu) and give the sensor a good blow ( without touching it) while holding the camera front down so that any specks of dust fall away from the sensor. Sometimes specks can stick (pollen for example) in which case you could try a disposable swab and cleaning solution, although if unsure most camera shops provide the service pretty cheap - the sensor would be a lot more expensive to replace if you mess it up.
