Re: DSC w5 has a spot in every picture
Assuimn there is nothing on the lens[I would not think this is the case as it would not show as a distict spot
Not ne fora DIY or a repairshop this is a a failure of the CCD.
Depending on the age of the camera and model this may qualify for replacement, as there was a reported CCD issue at one time
Either that or Sony may offer a replacement at a good discount.

may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into
the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
