Camera Cleaning service

Hello all

I currently have 2 K20D's and am having a problem cleaning one of them. I have made multiple attempts to clean my lenses, sensor, and all other components on my carema but for some reason cannot seem to eliminate dust spots on my prints. I am getting very frustrated about having pictures ruined by a dust spot. I am looking for a service center in the central NJ area that provides cleaning services for both my camera bodies and lenses. Any one have any suggestions?

Webbcam in Philadelphia will clean your sensor while you wait for $40. Website says $30 but the price re cently changed. They do NOT carry Pentax.

Sensor cleaning isn't brand specific. Any competent camera repair shop should do an adequate job.

Yes, that is true. Just wanted to point out that other than sensor cleaning, they are not a Pentax dealer, just in case poster is interested in more Pentax products, etc....

Philadelphia is a bit of a ways from Central New Jersey. I'd call a local repair center or at least a local pro photographer for a recommendation. Of course, a trip to New York for B&H and Adorama wouldn't be a total waste of time.
