Images blurry after sensor cleaning

Since I have for the first time cleaned the sensor on my Canon EOS 350D with all the right equipment (specific Sensor Swab, Eclipse product, PEC*pads) and according to the instructions, my images come out blurry. Did the cleaning leave a film that I should remove by cleaning again? Or could it be I damaged something, e.g. by pushing the sensor slightly out of place (though I was careful while cleaning)?

If the PEC pads are anything like the Zeiss or other lens cleaning papers I use for my eyeglasses and camera eyepieces (I try to avoid getting into a position where I'd have to clean my camera lenses), nothing ever seems to get clean the first or even second time. Almost invariably there's a multicolored haze that requires two, three or even more attempts to completely remove. This is partly due to skin oil on the eyeglasses and eyepiece but I've seen the same problem with multicoated filters on which a few raindrops or condensation had accumulated. It took two or three cleanings to remove the multicolored haze.

If you were careful while cleaning, I'd guess the cleaning solution just left a haze on the sensor then, and you might want to try again. Maybe use less solution this time. Hard to say without seeing an example.

Black dot on my pictures.


This sounds like dust on the sensor. You'll need to clean it. Google the words "cleaning a DSLR sensor" and you will find sites explaining the procedure with pictures and info about where you can get the supplies.

Canon Digital EOS camera black spot in images


This is dirt on the sensor. You can clean this yourself but first, get some knowledge. Google the words...cleaning a digital slr sensor. You will find sites that will show you step by step what to do and what supplies you will need. It may seem daunting at first, but believe me, it is incredibly easy once you start.

AF problem in CANON 350D


This is a problem with the mirror and the sensor. Have you out the camera in sensor clean mode? turning the camera to P then use the menu buttons to go to the second set of tool. clean sensor is there. You must have a good battery charge for it to work. take off the lens then hold the camera face down and activate the sensor. This did not work for me but this was one of the suggestions, if the mirror does lift back up when you put the camera in sensor clean mode then it is not the hinge that some are paying to be replaced. I took my camera and oddly enough turned it upside down in af mode in auto mode and it started shotting photos and focusing again. i did this about ten shots and when I put it back right side up everything worked fine! Try it and let me know.

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.

Dust on Canon 350D


I have some real experience of finding dusts and even moulds in-between the Low Pass Filter and the CMOS. So no matter how you "clean" the sensor "surface", the things inside are not affected. Very tedious you have to take out the CMOS and open up the Low Pass Filter to clean them. Nothing high-tech!
