Hi Patrick,

Here is a discussion on cleaning the sensor of a Canon DSLR: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/29...

However, I would get in contact with Canon right away and would explain what happened. They would surely know what to do next and would also be able to tell you a price for a possible repair.

Another way of fixing the issue (however, you would need to know how to do it - practically and technologically) is to get you a broken T2i with a working sensor and replace the sensor. See, for example, here: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=can...

I hope this helps.
