Question about Cameras
The problem is the S3000 is not an SLR. The lens does not remove to expose the sensor array. The camera needs to be disassembled.
I have not done this yet to my S3000 but did it for a friend on a Canon. Must be in a clean dust free environment. You need the small set of screwdrivers. Be careful and take notes of where each screw goes and if they are different sizes or lengths. Remove the batteries!
Once you can see the sensor array (some are quite small) .5 x .5 in. use some dust off in a can and if absolutely necessary some methanol on a lint free cloth or cotton swab. Use only enough force to remove the debris. A magnifying glass and good lighting is also needed. I just have two spots so can I live with editing them or do I want to preform surgery? I will let you know.
