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! ;p
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.
