Black spot on all pictures

I am a beginning photographer, and I am having trouble with a small blurry spot in the corner of all of my pictures. I have performed the dust removal, and changed lenses to make sure it wasn't on the lens. What do I need to do next?

I assume you mean by use of the camera's dust removal function which sometimes isn't enough. In these cases, the next step is to use a blower. Before you do this, read the manual and do some research here on PF. It's effective and fairly easy but there are pitfalls you'll want to avoid.

Huh! It worked for me (and it's exactly the right stuff for the OP.)

Works for me too. It's an article I wrote that is hosted in the Articles section here on pentax forums.

There has been a couple of threads, when an user had dust on the sensor. Some users found that the dust removal had be run several times before all the dust is removed.

I hope that it may work for you.

I had that problem with my K7 almost as soon as I got it. In camera dust removal didn't work so used a good quality blower and was all fixed! Hope this helps
