changed a lens this weekend, and now i have C%%%%%p all over the inside of my viewfinder, tried to clean it and made it worse.

Started off with just one black spec in the viewfinder and now looks like the whole family moved in......

HELP !!!! , what is the best way to clean the inside viewfinder on a K10D

It's probably just dust inside the main chamber.
Get a "Rocket Blower" and a soft brush.

A full clean (as quoted) is pretty time consuming and will include disassembly and internal cleaning.

Try the blower first! (And don't use compressed air, or worse - blow it with your mouth!)

HTH!

I've got a few spots on my screen that I can't get off, but I ignore them now. They have no effect on the actual image recorded.
Please call me aj,

I use a Pentax K10D, on a MacBook with LightRoom (vers 1.3 + beta 2)

Hang on a minute. I had the viewfinder changed when I bought my K10d, it came with pincers to facilitate removal therefore surely if the screen as crap on it, it surely is easier to clean than on an *ist DL, which I had, where the screen is not removeable.

That surely is not a value of 47, or it is a rip off in my humble opinion.

But it is the cost of a replacement screen if the old one is damaged.

Oh I see what you mean. In that case I would be lucky as I kept the original one.

The DL screen is removable but it's damned awkward and far too easy to bl**dy well scratch
Die my dear doctor, that's the last thing I shall do!
