Clean View Finder on Pentax K2000

Where is a good place to send my camera for view finder cleaning and the cost of this kind of maintenance? Thanks, Kevin

The view finder? Are you talking about outside the camera or inside?

If the dirt is on the outside part (where you put your eye) then there's no need to send it off.

Simply buy a lens cleaning kit and use that.

The kit I have contains a blower, a brush, a cloth, some cotton buds, and a cleaning solution.

I simply blow off any loose dust, then use the brush to stir up any leftover dust before blowing off again.
If there are smudges still there I spray the end of a cotton bud with the cleaning solution and rub it over the viewfinder.
Then I'll dry it off with the clean end (or the cloth if it fits)
(I use the same method for cleaning lenses, just replacing the cotton buds with the cloth since they're bigger)


If the marks are internal, ie: on the mirror inside the camera, then I simply use the blower to blow off any dust.

If you are not sure where the dirt/dust is, you are probably best off taking it to a local camera shop.
