lens or sensor problem, on my favorite older camera

Like this older but overall a very good camera, Canon Powershot A540.  Recent purchase of $7 from Goodwill.   Not super sharp but good, attached a picture from my back yard this AM (after darktable touchup).

There is a black spot seen below the picture frame on bottom right, can also see it on LCD, disappears with zooming in.  Since it is a "cheap" camera, won't repair it.  Just curious as to what the problem is.  ?lens on a sensor, see perhaps a tiny dust on the lens but...

-- hide signature --

it is not the camera but the brain behind the lens
