It may not be the view finder. My guess is that there's some dust on the lens. It will look like the dust is inside the view finder but its actually not. Do these "spec" appear on pictures too? If yes then you will need to clean your lens/get it cleaned.

Let me know if you need more help,
Sai.

When using any lens, the view through the viewfinder has small spots like a liquid was sprayed on a optical component. What is this and how can I fix it?


It could be on the mirror, the underside of the focusing screen, or the back of the viewfinder. All three can be inspected visually.

The back of the viewfinder can be cleaned with any window cleaner. Don't spray any directly onto the camera, but rather onto a clean microfiber cloth and then wipe the viewfinder clean.

The mirror and the focusing screen are more delicate. First try a handheld blower (NOT canned compressed air). If that doesn't do it, try a camel-hair brush. Only then resort to wiping it with a clean dry microfiber cloth. Use common sense, and avoid scratching the mirror/focusing screen.

If it's on the inside, the camera will need professional cleaning.

The viewfinder on my Panasonic PV-DV200 needs to be cleaned. I have the instruction manual but I cannot get it to turn the 1/8 turn recommended to remove


Hi, My PV-DV200's viewfinder needed cleaned too. Try, try and try again. The entire viewfinder assembly will turn, but if it's never been removed before, it will be on extremely tight. My viewfinder has a small notch at about 1 'o' clock on top. That notch needs to be turned to about 11 'o' clock. Once there, the viewfinder slips off easily. It will come off much easier from then on.

However, simply cleaning the removed viewfinder may not be enough. You may also need to remove the two small screws on the underside of the piece that's still attached to the camera in order to get inside there and clean that too. I removed the small rectangular glass and cleaned that and behind there as well. I used a Rayban cloth (needs to be lint-free) and some Plexus, along with a dull pencil in order to get everything cleaned all along the sides of each lens.

Just double check and make sure all parts of the viewfinder are clean by slipping everything back into place prior to screwing it all back on. This will save you some time because you will probably not get everything cleaned on your first attempt.

Hope this helps!

My wife has a Canon 60D DSLR camera. When she looks through the view finder, it looks like the lens has a speck of dust on it as she can see it in the viewfinder. She has swapped lenses and the spec is...


Take a couple of pictures, over a dark background, if you can see the spec of dust on them, the problem might be in the mirror. Now, if the dust does not appear on the pictures, it's either on the viewfinder, or somewhere else out of the way of the sensor.
You should never try to clean the sensor by hand, always ask a profesional to do that for you.

How do I clean specs of dust from an olympus OM10 camera? I have an OM10 that has not been used for many years. My kid is hoping to use it in a college class she has next semester but I noticed it has...


Well, you're right, not worth 150. Unless you have the plug in manual speed adapter for that camera, it's not really suitable for classroom work. The good news is that the specks you see in the viewfinder will not appear on any pictures taken with the camera. The mirror flips up and covers the viewfinder so the image created is straight to the film from the lens, ie the view finder is not part of the picture.

Is there supposed to be a hole on the side of my dryer


Well, though it be simple, you might clean the lint filter everytime you use it. Over time a dryer even with lint filter cleaned will still collect small amounts of lint inside it. You shouldn't worry much but you could call the maytag man to come and take apart the dryer and clean the inside. <;O)

LEQ1442ES--Nasty Smelling Clothes--Major lint inside


They make a 'air vent' lint cleaner and there is a handy brush made for cleaning your fridge coils that would work great. After you clean it, toss a 'Bounce' dryer sheet in to freshen it up!

Lint on mirror


The lint you are seeing is probably up inside the viewfinder on top of the focusing screen. It may be obnoxious, but it won't affect the pictures.

The only way to clean it out is to drop the focusing screen down and remove it and clean out the dust and lint.

It is a fairly delicate job, but if you are careful and have a pair of nice tweezers to drop the screen down with, you might be able to do it. Otherwise, it shouldn't cost too much to have your local camera repair shop do it for you.

Dryer screen


No. The accumulation of lint in the dryer screen generally doesn't have anything to do the amount that ends up INSIDE your dryer. Too little lint is not a bad sign. It's dependent upon the type of clothing you are drying as well. If the clothes are not "lint givers" (like cottons and wools), you generally won't see a lot of lint in the dryer screen. Dryer screens are not perfect, either and some lint always gets through. As long as there are no holes in the screen and you have it seated correctly, and you clean it after each use, you shouldn't have any problems.

What affects dryer performance the most, is your vent hose and routine cleaning. The simple rule of thumb is: The SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the vent hose the BETTER. The vent hose should also be cleaned thoroughly periodically. I recommend once per season. That's about 4 times per year. What causes the lint to back up into a dryer is when the vent hose becomes kinked or clogged. The lint is mixed with moist air when it leaves the dryer. If it has no where to go, it starts to accumulate and stick in areas of the vent hose that are sagging, or at tight bends. Eventually, the vent becomes so restricted that the lint ends up inside your dryer. This causes the heating circuits to overheat to eventual failure. Not to mention, accumulations of lint inside a dryer can cause a fire. I have personally inspected dryers that were so full of lint that the dryer hose contained about a gallon of water from condensation and the inside showed evidence of multiple fires. If you need further info, I have an article I wrote up explaining all of this under "Tips and Tricks" under my profile. I hope this helps you.

How do I clean the camera lens?


The best way to clean a lens is to use a piece of lint free lens cleaning tissue and a small amount of lens cleaning solution. Place a drop or two of cleaner on the tissue (never directly onto the lens) and then wipe the lens in a circular motion, removing any marks or smear. Additionally a smaller blower brush can be used to simply blow off or brush away loose dust. If the above supplies are not available a clean, dry, soft, lint free cloth can be used to clean the lens. The same method can be used to clean the viewfinder eyepiece of Nikon cameras.
