You should learn the mechanical basics of your camera, here is a good overview with a basic diagram of how the light travels in your camera.

http://www.digital-slr-guide.com/what-is-a-digital-slr.html (external link)

The only thing they don't show is that the mirror that reflects light up into the pentaprism and into the view finder is also partially transparent and the rest of the light hits another mirror right behind it that is at a different angle and reflects light down where it hits the focus sensor array. The whole mirror assembly flips up and rests against the focusing screen at the base of the pentaprism and then the light goes against the shutter which opens to expose the sensor. So as you can see, if there is something on the mirror or stuck in the pentaprism it will never actually be seen by the sensor.

Thanks! That actually helps alot! It puts everything so simply and was easy to understand. I'm thinking the fiber wasn't on the sensor. The guy at best buy said he could see it when he took the cap off the camera and that it was on the "mirror" on the top. That wouldn't be the sensor right?

Nope, that would just be on the mirror, the sensor itself is further back behind the mirror and the shutter. Odds are that a little puff of air would have gotten it off of the mirror, but it could have then found its way back to the sensor itself.

It is just too bad that the employees don't know the basics of how a DSLR works but they are expected to sell them.

Well dang... He stuck his finger down inside the camera trying to get it and then decided it would be best just to exchange it. I about flipped when he stuck his hands inside the camera. Haha. Of course, I didn't know where the sensor was located at this time but I knew it couldnt be good to just stick your finger down inside of the camera.

AAAAAH!!! Oh noes. The mirror is front silvered (actually it is super thin aluminum), and it is extremely fragile as the metal is on the front, never touch it with your hands. I don't do anything more than use a rocket blower on it. A few daring souls in here have cleaned it, but I think I would only trust that to a professional either at a local camera service place or send it to Canon.

In fact, the mirror is the most fragile part of the camera, the sensor itself has a glass filter in front that also serves to protect it and is much easier to clean than the mirror.
