    It depends on whether the speck is internal or external (on the sensor or the lens). If it's on the lens, it's fairly easy to clean; the sensor of a compact camera might be expensive to have cleaned however, it's fairly unusual to get dust on the sensor (In a P&S) can you post an image or two as examples?
