Answers :

To clean the sensor on the K100D . . .

1) Turn the camera on.
2) Press the "Menu" button.
3) Press the right arrow to the "Set-up" tab.
4) Press the down arrow to the "Sensor Cleaning" item on list.
5) Press the right arrow & follow the on-screen instructions.

And don't touch the sensor with anything. (You will damage the sensor).
And don't blow on the sensor. (You will get your spit on the sensor).
I used one of those old rubber blow bulbs that people used to clean their lenses with before the Lens Pen came along.

Take care & Happing Imaging!

The sensor is dirty, so small dust particles causes the spots. This model doesn´t have automatic cleaning of the sensor.
\015\0121-Remove the lens.
\015\0122-You have to search in the menues Setup/ Sensor Cleaning. This operation will lift and keep the mirror lifted so you can see the sensor.
\015\0123-With a blower just blow the sensor without touching it, this may remove the dust.
\015\0124-When you finish, turn the power off.
\015\0125-Shoot focusing the blue sky or a white surface to see if the spots are gone.
\015\012I think that this procedure is indicated in the user manual.
\015\012If the dust is not removed maybe you take the camera to a technician. Ton´t try to brush the surface of the sensor cause this may cause damage.
\015\012I have done this blowing operation several times with good results.
