Not always but sometimes I will get a small red dot when I print a picture. Sometimes it is visible on my screen with no zoom and sometimes the zoom (computer) must be used to see it. Do you think this is a camera or computer problem? Thanks for any input.

Perhaps a CCD issue which is why it shows up on screen and prints.

If the dot is always in the same place then it is probably a CCD fault (I had to get my sensor replaced by Panasonic in my FZ20 from a red dot fault - which happened most often under darker conditions).

If it moves around, then probably just a 'hot pixel' - more common the warmer the camera...
