Seems way to precise to be a lens defect. I'd guess its the sensor. Does the camera have an interchangeable lens? If so, can you shoot frames without a lens? That will help pinpoint the problem.

Reaffirming my distrust in modern electronics since right now.

If only that method worked with everything. Cars, computers, plumbing, children, the tax man..... Hey you should start a business.. Call it "broken? I'll shake it" You could be worth millions.

Good luck. I hope that fixed it. But I can't see how something would fall out of the lens or the camera and if it did, I would be really worried.

"If only that method worked with everything."

I have a certain generation of iPod that has faulty grease in the hard drive. Sometimes the hard rive will start to click and you will get a "sad iPod" picture on the screen. What is actually going on is that the grease is gumming up and the read arm on the hard drive is sticking.

The solution? While it is turned off, hold the iPod vertically about three inches off the table and bring it down hard to give it a good solid WHACK along its base.

So, yes, you can fix your broken iPod by hitting it.

I actually had that happen with a medium format camera during a wedding -- took off the 120 back and a piece from inside the camera fell out! No idea what it was for and I was lucky nothing seemed to be wrong -- soon after that I replaced my system, however.

I think Randeezee will agree with the "unplug it and plug it back in" method.
