Rebel T6i, how do you clean manually, like with a blower. "Clean manually" is not in the menu of options. Thanks

Page 274 of your manual.

That just says how to keep the mirror open, not how to clean.

 

Use a rocket blower and follow their instructions.

If you re-read the original post the OP refers to a blower. The question was that they did not know how to manually clean, which of course, involves opening the mirror.

That's what I read, but on my menu it does not say clean manually. All it has is clean sensor now, then it's clicks and cleans. So I can't get to the sensor with the rocket blower.

See the little star in the title? That means you have to be in the PASM modes, not the greensquare or other auto modes
