speck on viewfinder

Ive got this annoying dot on my viewfinder,
and no matter how much I wiped off my viewfinder it wont come off!

its irritating, and its not even on the eyepiece. and tried wiping off the focusing screen still wont come off....

any suggestions on how can I remove the dirt?

Do a search for the existing threads on the subject of spots in the viewfinder. You'll find pretty consistent recommendations to leave it alone as you risk making it worse or even damaging it. But you'll also find suggestions on doing the job if you decide to ignore that advice and take the risk.

It's likely on the back side of the screen that you can't reach. A big Giotto rocket blower will help.

Also, see the various threads in the Beginner section for tips about dust and spots.
