When I switch on my Z5 the lens makes a noise for a few seconds after the power has come on and the internal viewscreen flickers at the same time. There is also a semi-circular mask on the top right of the screen which carries over to any images.
You probably have a broken/loose spring in the anti-shake unit. The dark spot is the lens "seeing" the edge of the housing. The noise is the anti-shake trying to adjust itself and you are seeing the result on the screen. If you zoom in a bit, you will see the shadow disappear as the lens moves past the edge.

The tracking servo motors and associated gears are damaged or misaligned. The purpose of these servos are to automatically adjust the lens positioning so that it seems the camera is almost stationary. When the anti shake is enabled, the lens locks onto a target and if the target moves, the servos move the lens to compensate for the offset. If you are experiencing screen shaking it means that the lens is trying to adjust but cannot because the servo system is damaged. It's quite possible that only one servo motor is functioning and the other is loose. It will require in shop repair.
Your Card may need to be formatted. to fix this problem: [note- before you start, make sure that your SD Card is blank, or that the information is unimportant, because formatting your card will erase all of the information.]

4) press format
5) Make sure all of the correct settings are on and start the format.
now your SD card is formatted and should work in your camera and you can continue taking pictures. YEA :^)
The odds are you have a broken spring in the anti-shake assembly which has allowed the lens unit to shift to one side. The smudge you are seeing is the edge of the lens housing and will have a slight rounded shape. As you zoom in, you are extending the lens past this area so it no longer shows.
