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.

What does error30 mean and how can I fix it? I own a Canon 50d

This "err 30" has been quite popular with the 50D as there were several batches manufactured with problematic shutters. This is a shutter failing to open when you take a picture. Canon is aware of this and I have personally sent mine that was even 4 months past out of warranty and it was promptly taken cared of.
Anyhow, I have corrected another 50D using these steps: (Note: Your mileage may vary, I can't even believe how simple the solution was. So, It might not work for all.)
1.) Be in a clean, minimal dust environment with no fans and good lighting. 2.) Do a mirror lock-up (Press button with gray dot left of viewfinder) then turn off camera. 3.) Remove lens from camera body. If you can see the sensor (greenish rectangular flat), send your camera to a Canon Facility for a warranty repair. If not, continue to step 4. 4.) If you see that the shutter (4 lines of black thin film over-lapping each other's tips lengthwise) is closed. Turn camera on. 5.) Find "Sensor Cleaning" from on of the "Wrench" tab menu. Select "Clean Manually", follow camera instructions. i.e "Turn off after manually cleaning..." (Very important!) 6.) While camera is off, attach lens. Turn on camera. Do a mirror lock-up. You should see something on the LCD screen now. Take a picture. 7.) Snap a picture again. This time the mirror would have gone down (so you can use the viewfinder) and the shutter should have opened. The camera should then operate normally.

Canon rebel xt 1. image looks blury in eye

1. The viewfinder's diopter is probably out of focus (doesn't affect Auto Focus of photos). There's a dial and a +/- symbol next to the viewfinder. Turn the dial till you can see clearly through it. Alternative reason: The glass in the viewfinder is dirty/foggy. Use camera cleaning solution (a drop) on a cotton bud to clean it.

2. Malfunction needs Canon Service Centre to take a look at.

Cleaned inside of viewfinder, now AF focus lights gone

Then you learn, when everything works fine, dont mess with it! Have a look at the gold pins that rely the body to the lens. Also check that your lens manual switch focus is engaged... Try a friend lens to see if its your cam or the lens...
