I have a D300 that I had professionally cleaned at the local photo store a few months back.
I felt I would learn to clean the sensor myself so I bought a Visible Dust Sensor Loupe and Copper Hill's basic cleaning kit. I was able to quickly and easily clean one of my cameras but was unable to clean the D300.

When I go to the "Set Up Menu" I can scroll down to "Clean Image Sensor" but it then skips over the "Lock Mirror Up for Cleaning" to the "Video Mode" selection as the "Lock Mirror Up for Cleaning" is grayed out.

Any suggestions?
