I had hoped that a few people would check their cameras and posted replies before I contacted Pentax about my dust problem, but nobody has so far. But it's interesting that someone else posted a message this morning that he has some dust inside the lens of his 550. Anyway, this morning Pentax Canada told me that there should definitely be NO dust inside the viewfinder or the rest of the camera for that matter. Although the Viewfinder is "almost sealed" from the rest of the camera, it is not a total seal - which means to me that if dust can get into the viewfinder, it can get into the rest of the camera's interior - including the lens and imaging chip. They have asked me to bring my camera in so they can remove any dust particles that are inside. Basically, they told me that the only place I should see any dust is inside the lens cover, which is meant only as a protective covering rather than a seal from dust. Even then, they claim that any dust on the outer lens would only enter while the camera is being used. That one I don't buy, as the lens cover is very flimsy and can easily be accidentally spread open while the camera is turned off.

Most likely it is a mechanical failure such that the reflection mirror does not return back to its normal position, then blocking any light to the viewfinder.
Check this by unmounting the lens. If so, you may have to consider a repair operation.

If you have a SLR camera you can take your lense off and clean it.. I do not reccoment canned air because if you do not use it the right way liquid will come out. At best buy they have cleaning kits, and in their kit they have a little brush that you can squeeze regular air and brush off anything on the lense or around the lense, If you have a SLR camera you might have a built in cleaning option... SLR means Single Lense Reflex and this means your lense can come off/interchangable..

SOURCE: Dust inside my d200
The view finder and focusing screen are separate from the CCD sensor. The mirror reflects the image to the view finder until you take a picture. Then the mirror goes up, the shutter opens to expose the CCD to capture the image.
If you have a lot of dust, you should look into a cleaning kit, or have it professionally cleaned. This will show up on your images as white and/or black specks.

If dust is in the camera, it must be opened. I suggest not doing this yourself. Lookup a Canon dealer in your region and ask for support.
