    :(It's ME!:(

    I had a speck on my sensor. The blower could not get it. I thought I would put on a long exposure and knock it with a Q Tip. WROOOOONG! I was too slow and the shutter closed down. Now the camera is broken and I have to get it proffesionaly repaired. Apparently there are some delicate parts on the shutter for speed and precision that break very easily. Also it puts the camera out of sync and the mirror stays up. Woe is me.

    I wondered what the brush was for in the care kit. The care kit came with nothing but the stuff and no instructions.

    Even if mirror lock-up was engaged, shutter curtains would still close after the exposure.

    Sounds like BULB what he needed. But even then, I am not sure if a Q tip would succesfully do the job.

    My Rebel has a setting in the menu for cleaning the sensor. I can't believe that Nikon wouldn't have the same?

    Nikons do have a special setting I just am not sure wich ones. I had a nikon lover see my camera a while back and he was trying to find the cleaning mode and could not believe I did not have a cleaning mode. That migh be part of the scales down in the D40

    This situation requires the READING OF THE MANUAL. Might prove costly but take comfort, you aren't alone on here. H

    :meh:

    It locks up the mirror and opens the shutter so you can clean it with a sensor cleaning kit. But you knew that, right? It was just a clever joke? ;)

    Some of the fancier, pricier models shake the sensor to clean it automatically. Mine, no so much.
