Default Issue with current camera, looking for possible replacement

I got the Sony DSC-HX20V about a year ago, this fall i started noticing specs and white dots in my shots, had some health issues so just started looking into this again it seems to be a dust issue, i tried a tip i saw about vacuuming it not sure that work

any other suggestions also at this point im looking to possibly replace it with a camera that is equal to it in specs but doesnt have this issue and another issue i have when using flash and doing a close up shot there is a shadow in the left or right corner

so i would like recommendations on a new digital camera as well, one that has a zoom equal to this or better and is good for low light events like concerts and sporting events

Budget i say willing to spend up to $350 if i could get away with cheaper that would be better

The problem you have with dust can be fixed by sending it off to the manufacturer, though for a fee. This is not unique to your HX20, btw.

The problem when using a flash with close-ups is common when using the pop-up flash on a P&S camera.
