    Hi,

    I have a TZ5 which has done me proud for years but it appears the inside of the lens has somehow got dirty, very fine dirt which is stopping it from focusing correctly sometimes.

    Is there a way to clean this? or would it need to be taken to a camera shop?

    Thanks
    Pete

    I also have one of these and I have a white piece of something in the inside of the lens. I'm guessing I'd have to send this out for cleaning.

    I agree. The lens has to be removed which is not something you should try to do yourself.

    I viewed your Youtube video and, well the technique may work well for some, I personally would feel nervous about trying it.

    Links are OK unless they are merely advertising gimmicks.
