Is the dirt inside the viewfinder or outside on the surface? Did you try to get 'Lenspen' cleaning kit? It contain various size kits for cleaning at various location of the camera, so if the dirt is outside the viewfinder, then this should be able to solve your problem without have a need to go to NSC.

hmmz.. dirt in the viewfinder is quite common..i think there mite be some dust in my viewfinder too.. some people will advise to just live with it if you are not too bothered by it as it does not affect picture quality.. I just left it alone
hmmz.. don't know if scratches on the viewfinder caused by the user is covered by warranty :bsmilie: (though i tend to think that damages caused by user are not covered)... but if you got the time to spare.. no harm bringing down to the NSC? Any try not to do DIY repairs on your own if you are not confident.. mite bring more harm to the camera :)

If it doesn't affect the picture quality, you don't need to bother about it. But if it really bothers you, then just bring it down to the service center to get it clean. I too ever had dust and even a piece of hair inside the viewfinder, and I just live with it for almost a year until I got it cleaned at the same time when I send my camera to the service center for sensor cleaning.

haha....for a while i was wondering how long the hair is and whether the full length occupy at least half of your viewfinder.....:bsmilie:

maybe should just get silicon and seal up the whole camera.....:rolleyes: and tape up the whole camera....haha:sweatsm:

your warranty over? if yes, personally i think $100 bucks for settling of the problem is a good bargain (especially if u r not confident of doing it yourself without affecting other parts...) or else just ignore it...

i think u oni need to change the focusing screen..unless u manage to take out the focusing screen to clean the viewfinder, and scratch the prism..then changing the viewfinder prism will be more expensive..let NSC do a check for u, then u decide whether u want to proceed wif the service..changing of focusing screen is around $45..if under warranty, ask them for a sensor cleaning oso..

Hi, I only got the focusing screen for D70. So it does not have on-demand grid lines.
