I don't know what the material the low-pass filter/sensor is constructed of, if it is a plastic, perhaps it is ruined. If it is a glass(which I would hope) the substance you used may have simply left a nasty residue. Try cleaning it a couple more times using isopropyl alcohol. Alcohol will leave very little or no residue. If it is still messed up, you may be in for a bit of an expense. I have used isopropyl alcohol/Q-tip successfully on my D70.

Good luck,
