    Default What do you use other then the blower

    What do you use when the dust blower doesn't work to clean the sensor or lens? Have some dust in my sensor,the dustblower thing is not blowing the dust away!

    sometimes, u might have blow at the wrong part..becos the mirror reflections may lead u to think the dust is at Part A when in fact its in Part B..

    if all else fails, go to nikon, becos the sensor is a very sensitive area..not worth to play it on ur own.. cheers!

    Take the high-class tissue (PecPed), wrap it round a plastic knife that has been shaped accordingly. Drip some high-class methanol (Eclipse), and activate cleaning mode (PLEASE get a power cord that supplies from your home/office's AC supply, you never know when your batteries run flat, but then again, AC also can trip ). Rub rub rub and your sensor will be cleaner. Target is ZERO specks.

    It is VERY hard to scratch the sensor, considering that it is glass. You can try scratching a glass table with your pen-knife. It is possible to break the glass by applying too much pressure, and that's where you should really take care.

    Copperhill method works. I assure you. I have been taught this by fellow Clubsnapper.

    Blower doesn't work? Well, I just use the 'other' blower ... My Mouth!
    Just kidding! Don't try that or you'll end up with more than just dust on the sensor!
    I normally just send it to the service centre for cleaning.
