Hair and Other Particle on Back of Focusing Sensor

Howdy all, so i have these huge pieces of hair and what might be grass on i think the back of focusing sensor/viewfinder. I can definitly tell its not on the sensor. However when i see it and try to use rocket blower on front, it doesnt work. The pieces are stuck on the back. does this portion come out, so i can try to blow behind it. Items are not affecting photos, just a HUGE annoyence looking through the few finder. Hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks

Steve

Should be an easy fix...

Check youtube for K10D focus screen switch. It will show you how to take your focus screen out (it is super easy) so that you can clean it off and reinstall.

Hope this helps!

AWESOME!! This did the trick! Thanks so much! Is this in the Support part, maybe should be a sticky?
