I am wondering if is it possible to access the sensor cleaning option (in the menu) from the computer. I have a T3/1100D and the back panel buttons (including menu) is not working any more. Once I theter the camera to take my photos, it is not a big deal. However, I am not sure if I completely lost the function of sensor cleaning... Appreciate any help on this.

Thank you Scott! You are right about the repair: it would be better to buy a new one. My only concern is that this one is full spectrum modified (lfp1 and 2 removed) and works great for astrophotography. It would be perfect if I could access the sensor from times to times for cleaning... When testing for spots (with background, highest f number), I could find a lot of big ones (probably result from the environmental conditions that I expose the camera for astrophotos). Anyway, I appreciate your reply and will weight the pros and cons of buying a new one (seems that accessing the cleaning function from the computer isn't a option, from what I looked online).

Thanks Scott! I did it with bulb exposure (kept pressing the shutter button while blowing the off the dust particles). It worked fine (removed the big dust particles)! I will keep the idea of the video in mind for deep cleaning with a swab, if required in the future. I really appreciate your feedback and help!
