I assume you have the manual again. If you don't have the pdf it is available here. I assume your referring to the instructions on p. 41.
You will want to make sure your lens is detached and then perform those steps. Also what is your firmware vesion?
Thank you,

How can i clean the sensor?

This is something that should be done by a specialist ,ie Canon repair.

However this can be done by yourself but is extremely risky.I clean my sensor but have learnt the hard way.

Here are some tips for you, i suggest you read carefully first -

This will apply to most dslr's though some have sensor self-cleaning within the menu.

If you decide to manually clean the sensor, i would suggest you use make sure you list the Camera make and model.

Though accessing Mirror lockup in your menu and using a rocket blower may cure any problems you have.
Do NOT touch the sensor with the rocket blower.

I can guide you through the process, but would recommend you send the camera to Canon for a clean and service.

Reset option and clean sensor option are not visible in set up menu. Canon D20 I had a two spots that kept appearing in the same area of the photo so I looked at the manual and did the clean sensor...

First of all - great camera! Check out for a lot more information on the functionality. The sensor clean function only raises the mirror and exposes the sensor so that it can be professionally cleaned so that may not solve the problem of the spots. Furthermore, be extremely careful if you have the lens off when doing this as you can make the problem even worse. I would recommend you take it to a good local camera shop and ask them to clean the sensor for you. In the UK it costs around GBP30.

You should be able to set the exposure to "B" when the exposure is set for manual exposure settings. The shutter should stay open (and the mirror up) for as long as you keep the shutter button pressed.

Pentax K100D black spot on images

To clean the sensor on the K100D . . .

1) Turn the camera on.
2) Press the "Menu" button.
3) Press the right arrow to the "Set-up" tab.
4) Press the down arrow to the "Sensor Cleaning" item on list.
5) Press the right arrow & follow the on-screen instructions.

And don't touch the sensor with anything. (You will damage the sensor).
And don't blow on the sensor. (You will get your spit on the sensor).
I used one of those old rubber blow bulbs that people used to clean their lenses with before the Lens Pen came along.

Take care & Happing Imaging!
