Following the above instructions may damage your camera because you have removed your lens that communicates with your camera and the paths that the electronics is expecting to fond will not be present, so strange results can be expected from the electronics, including circuit failure, due to stress and overheating, caused by partially completed circuits.

If that is true then manual cleaning a sensor with mirror lock up would damage the camera. If that electronic is so sensitive then the manual needs to be seriously updated. I do not see the warning under attaching/detaching lens that needs camera to be in power off first. There are few operations that manual indicates power needs to be off first but not with attaching/detaching lens as far as I can find.

Regards.
