... your camera may be suffering from the same problem my a65 does, mildew beneath the image sensor. I sent mine to Perfect Image Camera out of Lancaster PA and after spending $59.95 + shipping, they delivered the bad news to me: not economically feasible to repair.

In almost 15 years of shooting digital ILCs and frequenting photography forums, I've never read a report of such a thing before. Must be a rather rare situation.

I suspect they actually mean there is fungus under the low-pass filter, rather than under the sensor. A quick google search reveals a few examples of that. I don’t think fungus under the sensor would even be visible. Either way, it would be difficult and expensive to fix.
