Dust stuck under glass on the lcd screen of my d60
I bought my d60 about a month ago and i have noticed that some dust has been entering the lcd screen under the glass. I think it may get in through the delete button, but I can't be sure. I've searched everywhere for a solution to this problem, but I have yet to find one. The dust stuck on the screen does not affect the photos, but it is very annoying knowing that i bought this camera only a month ago and dust is getting into it. My friend, who bought her d60 two months ago has not yet experienced this problem. Please help me find a way to get rid of the dust entirely, and/or prevent dust from entering in the future.

Re: dust stuck under glass on the lcd screen of my d60
If you purchased your D60 new, you could sent it in to Nikon for cleaning but personally, I'd wait a while if it's not affecting the camera's functions. If you need warranty work within the first year, you can send the camera in for that work, and they'll clean under the LCD while servicing the camera.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yep, you can clean the LCD and the inside of the glass, but you will need two suction cups for glass. The ones for picking up window glass work. Lay the computer on its back. Place the suction cups at the upper corners and pull straight away from the table. The glass is held on by magnets and may have tabs at the bottom, so once the magnets are loose you may have to lift the glass away from the bottom edge. Be careful, it isn't safety glass and can break if dropped. The hardest part is keeping dust from getting between the screen and the glass during reassembly. Try working in a dust-free environment. I use two micro-fiber cloths, one with screen cleaner and one dry. You can't believe how much static builds up on the inside of the glass. It just sucks in dust. Don't wear fleece or you'll end up with fuzz as well. Stand your iMac up to reinstall. Clean the outside of the glass so you can see any dust on the inside. Place the bottom in place first. As you prepare to move the top into place, have light behind and above you and view the glass with the black screen behind. You can see most of the dust that way. Good luck.
I'm very sorry but unfortuately if it's showing a bright light then it has damaged the matrix of the screen & the only way to repair it would be to have the screen replaced. Possible you could claim accidental damage under your home insurance to help cover the costs.
My guess is that you have a dust spot in the camera on the mirror. This is not a user fixable ptoblem unless you are very well versed on camera repair. I would take to a camera store and have them clean the mirror.
D-SLR cameras are designed to be used with interchangeable lenses
and foreign matter may enter the camera when lenses are changed. Once
inside the camera, this foreign matter may adhere to the sensor, where
it may appear in photographs taken under certain conditions. To prevent foreign matter from entering the camera
do not change lenses in dusty environments
point the camera down when changing lenses.
To protect the camera when no lens is in place be sure to thread on
the body cap provided with the camera, being careful to first remove
all dust and other foreign matter that may be adhering to the body cap. Remove foreign matter from low-pass filter
Clean the low-pass filter covering the sensor as instructed in the camera manual or continue reading below.
The Nikon D300 and D60 has the ability to clean the sensor* using
the "Clean Image Sensor" feature. Please see page 371 in your D300
User's Manual, and page160 in your D60 User's Manual for more
information. *Clean Image Sensor may not remove all sensor
contamination and additional manual cleaning may be necessary. See page
374 in the D300 manual, and page 162 in the D60 manual for more
Fix images with black spots
Photographs with dust or foreign matter on the low-pass
filter can be retouched using the 'Image Dust Off' function available
in Nikon Capture 4 or later (available separately) if the image was
taken in the NEF format, for more information visit the article on 'How does Image Dust off' work.
One if the small LCD panels inside has dead/stuck pixels. There are 3 individual panels that make up red, green and blue.
Dust has entere the system and is sitting on the back of the polariser. This is a thin colour film ontop of the small LCD panel that sends the right colour light through the LCD.
If it's the first one, then it will be covered under warranty.
If it is the second they will normally cover it under warranty since their dudst filters have failed to keep the dust out of the projector.
Call the number in the back of your user manual for your area and they will arrange it all with you from there.
