Re: Scratched focus screen?

Hi Kevin,

Did the problem get fixed? Can u share your experience on what happened finally?

I had a sleepless weekend facing the same problem.

First I found 3 dots out of nowhere. It was not on the mirror nor the sensor (no effect on the pictures). Then when I observed closely, the focussing screen had this dirt. I used blower & it dint help. I took it to a camera shop & got their bet cleaning kit.

A stronger blower & a microfiber cleaning bud/cleansing liquid. The blower dint help. When I used the microfiber cleaning bud, after one use, I found minute scratches on the focussing screen. The dots were probably from the bristles of the senor cleaning brush in the camera.

I have to send it to Canon NL today.
