hello good folks. The unfortunate has happened to me.

It seems I got a hair on my LX100 sensor. I've read on other forums that it happens when the zoom barrel extends and air is sucked in and out.

I don't think my camera is covered by warranty anymore, so I'm curious if anyone has fantastic ideas how to dislodge it?

Or a good contact for a Lumix repair shop?

And if I had to bring it to the customer service center, how much does a repair like this cost?

Cleaning is rarely accepted as warranty claim. Go to the service center or repair shop for a check, then compare the quotes carefully.

maybe try using a blower when the camera is on and also when it is off. see if blowing when the lens is extended/contracted helps at least dislodge the hair from the sensor. but it will just fall somewhere else and may go back on sensor in the future too.
