Months ago, I found a way and posted how I clean my own CCD and it's been working fine.
Using the AC Apapter along with the following items.
This is by no means an advertisement by the way.
I use these items being I had them around the house and gave them a try.
1. 3 oz. capacity ear Syringe, SunMark by McKesson.
2. 2 inch wide shipping tape, Highland 3710 by 3M
When the tape is pulled off the roll rapidly, it causes a static charge to the tape which draws dust/particles to itself.
Immediately I place a piece of tape, large enough to cover the camera lens mount leaving a small opening to enable placement of the Ear Syringe to blow 2-3 puffs into it.
Without anything to draw out the dust/dirt particles such as the tape, one is merely blowing the particles around and some settle back.
Don't waste any time in tearing off and placing a piece of this tape while the static charge is still present.
