Hi

I have just discovered 3 green small blobs spread across my images.

Tracing back, its stared around April this year.

I am devastated - my Finepix 602Z is just under 3 years old, has been treated with the utmost care.

I have read that you can clean the lens (internally) - but before I attempt that, I need to confirm if these green marks are dust.

I have included a snap.

I know I can use Photoshop, and most of the images I've taken the spots are not noticeable - but I'd prefer to remove them.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance - Stephen

First off you cannot clean the internal lens, its a specialist job. But this looks like dust spots, You cannot clear that either, another job for the boys.

Thanks geriatric,

However this links do show how to fix a FinePix 602Z when out of warranty.

Looking at the second link, "OH NO" rather you than me. I think I would rather send it away for cleaning.

Hi guys,
Yup its the author :-) Over the last few years, MANY hundreds have done either Dust removal, Internal Lens cleaning, or CCD cleaning, and I do NOT exaggerate this figure. (Including 2 CCD cleans this week). I keep an archive of all the emails.
The spots are TOO In-focus and too small to be CCD dust. They look like inside the front glass. First try the "tapping, vacuum and air methods" as they are easy to do.
Do you live or use the camera in high humidity? Front glass removal / cleaning is sooo easy. Anyway let me know how U go.
There are OTHER reasons to always use an adapter tube but sadly, its NO guarantee it will help with dust. An observation from MANY 100s of users. If you want to read up on S602-7000 issues, I have 1,000s posts in dpreview.
