Hasselblad motomod dust spots on sensor, How do I clean it?

Based on having used a DSLR for years and dealing with sensor dust spots, it appears that there are three big and a few small dust spots on my sensor (see attached photo of a white surface). These are large compared to what I've encountered on my DSLR, but act exactly the same. Non-interchangable lens cameras are less prone to dust spots, but here we are.

 

Is there anyway to clean the sensor? I have done it successfully on my DSLR, but one must have access to the sensor surface, and it's not obvious how to get into the motomod.

 

As a side note, I'm unhappy with the vignetting this camera has. Is it my unit or is this common in a "Hasselblad"?

MotoBecky,

I replied by private message with the details you requested, but have not heard back from you. Can you help?

Did you have luck cleaning the sensor?  I have a spec of dust on mine too.

No, the tech support finally replied and said it wasn't possible. I had tried to disassemble it, but no luck. I gave up and got a new one for 'free' when I upgraded my phone to the latest Z3play.

 

Bad design, since dust spots are inevitable with zoom lenses.
