No. FixYa only provides online support, and we can't clean your sensor online. Any good camera shop should be able to clean the sensor for you, and/or sell you a sensor cleaning kit.

Service fee for D5100 lens / sensor cleaning

You could ask a Nikon service centre closest to you.
You could try to clean it yourself. But only with the correct tools and enough knowledge about the camera. Cleaning kits for DSLRs can be bought in almost every camera shop. Perhaps you even can order a set with Nikon. Please if you do it yourself, inform yourself before you begin.

I have dot of my coolpix camra but after cleaning upper lens it will not remove anybody suggestion in it

Hi, Sounds like some dust or sand got into the camera and is on the sensor. That means you need to have the camera cleaned, if you contact Nikon they can tell you of authorized service centres in your area that can clean the sensor.

How to clean Nikon D3x sensor?

Go to your menu and choose 'clean sensor'.

In the video you'll see Jared Polin (famous photographer) clean the image sensor of his Nikon D3s (not exactly the D3x, but should be mostly the same procedure).

Spot on images

Sorry, I read this as being for a Nikon N70 35mm SLR, but now see that it's a Canon EOS 350d.

In that case, you simply have a dirty image sensor. Either use a DIY sensor cleaning kit on the sensor (put the camera body into "sensor cleaning mode" to expose the sensor), or get a professional cleaning done. Professional is best for a one off, but as the problem will re-occur then there's no substitute for the experience you'll gain by doing it yourself. Until you get good at sensor cleaning, just clone out the artefacts using your preferred image editing software.

How to clean the sensor of a Nikon D90

Google the words "how to clean a DSLR sensor". You will find sites explaining in detail the entire procedure including pictures. They will also tell you what supplies you will need. This may sound difficult, but with the right supplies, it's really easy.

Small round dot, upper right corner of all pictures. Same place, same size. Cleaned all lens. Nikon D80 with Sigma 28-200 lens

If this dot is fuzzy, then you will need to have the camera sensor cleaned. If the dot is in focus, then you may have one or more dead pixels on your sensor.

You can purchase sensor cleaning kits at better camera stores and on line. Be prepared to spend 60 to 100 dollars for the kit.

You can also take the D80 into an authorized nikon repair center for cleaning or service.

I see a spot on every image taken with my Nikon D70

This is probably dust on the sensor.

You can clean this yourself or you can send the camera to Nikon.

If you want to see what you have to do, search for "nikon d70 sensor cleaning" on the internet.
There are instructions and videos to help.

It involves taking the lens off and locking up the camera mirror using the menu option.
Then either blow it off with a camera blower or clean the sensor with a cotton swab.

I did this myself on my D80, it is not hard but you have to be careful.

Sensor Cleaner making noises?? (Nikon D300)

Yes, all D300 makes this noise when the sensor is being cleaned.

It might be caused by some dirt on your lens (either front or rear element) but is more likely to be dust on the cameras sensor.

There are a couple of sample images of what this looks like here and here.

Dust spots typically have a softish edge to them and affect more than 1 pixel. (if it is just the 1 pixel affected, which a very sharp edge, this could be a defective sensor).

Following the instructions in the manual for cleaning the sensor. Avoid touching the sensor (unless it is with a specialist sensor cleaning brush) and avoid cans of compressed air; use a hand-blower brush instead.
