My LCD is broken and I need to clean my sensor... (I will send my camera in for repair eventually...)

Could someone please tell me exactly what buttons I need to push to turn cleaning mode on?
(Everything works, I just can't see the menu...)

I thought about putting it into Bulb and doing it that way...but it seems too risky.

I always understood the 350D didn't have an automatic sensor cleaner. If you access the manual online, page 39-40 speaks of how to lock up the mirror and then use a rubber blower to blow away dust on the surface of the sensor.

Exactly (but it opens the shutter too, not just the mirror), but since I can't see anything on the LCD I need step by step directions on what buttons to push to get there in the menu.

I have the paper copy here (didn't think to check there, I didn't think it would have pictures of the menu. Page numbers are the same...btw).

To access cleaning mode I need to:
  1. Push "Menu"
  2. Push "Right" 4 times (or push "Left" 1 time)
  3. Push "Down" 6 times
  4. Push "Set"
  5. Push "Set" again
I'm not sure about step 5... I don't know if the "OK" or the "Cancel" button will be highlighted by default. I think it'll be the "OK" button, but I'm not sure.


......I just tried the above list, it didn't work so I started pushing buttons and it went into cleaning mode. I forgot what buttons I pushed though. I'll figure this out soon...

OK, I got it. Just in case anyone else runs into the same problem here's the steps:

  1. Push "Menu"
  2. Push "Right" 4 times, OR push "Left" 1 time (both ways get you to the same place)
  3. Push "Down" 6 times
  4. Push "Set"
  5. Push "Right" 1 time (pushing "Left" probably works too, but I pushed "Right"...)
  6. Push "Set"
