You can't clean it on your own, you need the skills, and the tools, else you will risk damaging your camera.

you can bring it to Nikon Service Center, but we don't know the actual cost as we don't know how severe is the fungus infested. They won't able to tell you unless they able to examine the camera.

so just bring your camera to Nikon Service Center to ask for a quote, and buy dry cabinet at the same time.

trying to understand your description :dunno:
but anyway it sounds serious enough to warrant some action soon.
Your options include (but not limited to) Nikon Service Centre and CSer 'fatigue'.
Cleaning the sensor on your own is a risky job. Best leave it to someone trained for the job... :)

Jobs like this have a specific complexity/difficulty, so it's hard to benchmark the price.
Most important is whether you think spending $100 is justifiable to have your camera returned to 'fungus-free' state :)

Do u think some 1 will buy if the cam have fungi
If you indeed wanted to sell off this cam, please make sure that you state that in your ad that your cam was infested by fungus so as to give potential buyer a head up (partly to protect your own ass too). Plus I believe some people might want one (if cheap enough) so they can convert it to IR.

upgrade = buy a new camera.

As this fungus infected camera, maybe if you have time, convert it to IR cam. :)

in fact, as long as you sell it dirt cheap and tell people will cost at least $100 to clean up the fungus, who knows, you maybe able to find a buyer.

Yes, I have a few friends looking for camera to be converted to infrared. The filter will be replaced so it really doesn't matter

Of course, it has to be a bit lower than the good D60 :)
