    Cleaning Inside Sony DSC-P200?
    Anyone ever taken a DSC-P200 apart to remove possible dust?

    I figure the lens may have a slight smudge inside. I'm going to try shining a couple of different color lights into it to see if I can visually identify it.

    That cleaning site is a keeper, for when I get an SLR digital camera. Mine isn't right now.

    Are you in Tazmania? If so, perhaps you'd like these pics.

    Over a year later I found an answer at dpreview.com. I guess I plugged in the right search words into Google this time. Anyway, my camera is taking clean pictures again, after some difficulty.

    Tip: Disconnect the speaker cable.

    Point and shoot cameras have sealed lenses that aren't supposed to be taken apart. if yours is faulty and has a gap where dust can enter, get it replaced by the company. taking it apart yourself would only remove more dustproofing and dust would build up again really quickly.

    I drive a Mazda Rx-7, shoot a Canon 20D, and soon.......... I will use a Mac.

    Rowe2ry, apparently some Sony models, have poorly seal lenses, as I found out after reading the dpreview how-to that I referenced. My camera model is one of them. What actually happens in many cases is dust gets onto the glass that covers the CCD. After I cleaned that, all was fine.
