❚❚Manual Cleaning
If foreign matter can not be removed from the low-pass filter using the Clean image 
sensor
 option in the setup menu (0 206), the filter can be cleaned manually as 
described below. Note, however, that the filter is extremely delicate and easily 
damaged. Nikon recommends that the filter be cleaned only by Nikon-authorized 
service personnel.
1
Charge the battery or connect an AC adapter.
A reliable power source is required when inspecting or cleaning the low-pass 
filter. Turn the camera off and insert a fully-charged EN-EL9a battery or connect 
an optional EP-5 power connector and EH-5a AC adapter.
2
Remove the lens.
Turn the camera off and remove the lens.
3
Select Lock mirror up for cleaning.
Turn the camera on and press the 
button to display the menus. Highlight Lock 
mirror up for cleaning
 in the setup menu 
and press 2 (note that this option is not 
available at battery levels of 
H or below).
4
Press 
J.
The message shown at right will be displayed in the 
monitor. To restore normal operation without inspecting 
the low-pass filter, turn the camera off.
5
Raise the mirror.
Press the shutter-release button all the way down. The 
mirror will be raised and the shutter curtain will open, 
revealing the low-pass filter.
6
Examine the low-pass filter.
Holding the camera so that light falls on the low-pass filter, 
examine the filter for dust or lint. If no foreign objects are 
present, proceed to Step 8.
