However, if you cannot do it on your own, do not worry because you can always ask a technician to repair it for you.

Repair The Charge-Coupled Device

This device translates the light entering the lens into a digital signal. If your CCD is defective, it can cause your camera to take photos that have pink or purple dripping paint or solid black pictures, or they might have a repeating horizontal or vertical line in the images it produces. If you witness this, call the manufacturer to repair your camera. When the camera’s CCD has some specs of dust on them, you will find out that your images have bigger and smaller spots when you zoom your photos. That camera will be repaired by getting the lens removed and then remove the CCD from the back and have it cleaned to remove the dust particles on it. When doing this, ensure that you do not misplace or lose the gasket that goes around the CCD. Be careful not to leave any dirt on the lens or fingerprints.
