I've noticed there appear to be some specs of dirt on the sensor of my panasonic LX5 and was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to clean the sensor on this camera? I found this link which has some handy advice for establishing whether there is dust on the sensor. I've followed this and attached the image below:
I've seen this question: Should I clean my camera sensor myself, or take it to a professional? but it applies to a DSLR which presumably would be easier to access the sensor for cleaning?
I've had a go at taking the camera apart and have got as far as removing the rear cover/LCD, but cannot tell if it's possible to remove the ribbon cables from the main circuit board or not? Maybe someone has done this before and can advise? If this is ill-advised, where would be the best place (in Paris) to get my camera serviced?
EDIT Well I've managed to find these quite detailed instructions on how to dismantle a Panasonic LX3, but sadly the author never got as far as exposing the sensor. Also, it seems that the connectors connecting the ribbon cables from the LCD to the main circuit board are different on the LX5 and don't have an obvious way do detach them.
