Question about Canon EOS-10D Digital Camera

Cleaning my sensor

I own a canon 10D and have a spec or something on my sensor. I know how to open up the camera to expose it, but am very uncertain of how to go about cleaning it. How gentle should I be, and what materials should I use? Thanx very much to anyone who can help.

Re: Cleaning my sensor

I have tried cleaning my 20D a few times. It is easy to do and the result is satisfactory. For routine cleaning, I just use a blower to blow off any dust on the sensor. Remember to turn the camera so that the sensor is facing down. In this way the dust once blow away will not fall onto the sensor again. For dirt that cannot be blown away, I use the Sensor Swab from Photographic Solution. http://www.photosol.com/swabproduct.htm They are very effective and easy to use but expensive (still much cheaper than going to Canon for service). Just remember not to add too much cleaning solution to avoid sneaking.

I have a canon 10D that is getting an "error 99".


You could've used a non-compatible lens or the contacts are dirty. Turn the camera off then use a clean micro fiber cloth or pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

My Canon 10D will not Power On. Do I need the original battery ? Currently I have A battery from my Canon 30D in the 10D.


According to Canon, the battery should work in either camera. Does the battery work in the other camera but not in the 10D?

Try cleaning your battery terminals. You can use a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip. If you are still having issues then you will need to get another battery as that battery is shot

There is a mode in which you can lock up the mirror and shutter blades so that the sensor is exposed. Use a appropriate cleaning kit and avoid touching the sensor.

My 10d won't focus


At 700 images/week for 52 weeks, you're just about at the point where the shutter could fail pretty soon. I don't think that would affect AF though, and AF doesn't "wear out" with use (other than experiencing the random failures that all electronics do).
