Default Dust behind the screen?

Hey everyone, thanks for reading.

I'm having a ZEN X-Fi (16GB) for 10 months now, and somehow dust got behind my screen. First I thought it was behind my screen protector, but when I removed it and tilted the player I could see it's really behind the plastic screen.

Anyone else has/had this?
Is it possible it got in trough the SD card slot?
What can I do about it?
Might 'factory warranty' (Not sure what's the right name for that in English - I believe I have 12 months total, so about 2 left) cover this?

Any help or advice on what to do would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I have the same problem. I had posted a thread regarding this too (which apparently got no replies). Anyway, according to me this happens because of empty slots in the player, like the SD card slot or the charging slot.

Also, I don't think there is a way to get rid of this dust unless we're talking of opening the body.

the speaker on the bottom could be a vent. try vacuuming the dust from there?

Canned air (or an air compressor) and a vacuum (good call suki7) might be worth a try.

Also, if you're adventurous you could try taking the player apart. There are probably instructions on the internetwork somewhere.

I don't really think so because that would require a hollow (or semi-hollow) passage from the speaker to the corner of the screen, but it might be worth a try.
