    Hey there Icecubefairy, thanks so much for the info and the email in
    regard to my problem with my Canon PowershotA75. Typical of me I had
    only had a "blokes" look at first online ha ha. Then with a little more
    research was able to locate the following website

    I sincerely appreciate your help and being so kind as to reply so
    promptly. Just to add a note: I called Canon Cameras in Sydney and they
    indicated that it's more than likely one of over 2 million +++ Sony ccd
    chips that have proven faulty over the years. The offer from Canon, is
    as you said, is to fix it & post it back to me for free.
    Again thanks a trillion for your help top service
    Cheers mate Bill:)

I just had this same problem. Check the canon web site, search for you camera and look for the CCD Image Sensor Advisory. They are aware of this problem and will fix it for free. Just call the customer service number.

I have a Fridgidaire stove FE369COSE. Ran self cleaning cycle but now oven door won't unlock. Oven is cool but an error code of f9 is flashing. Does anyone have a solution? jadimin

I've had this happen with my Frigidaire stove too. The "locked" light is on.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Open the oven door and locate the light switch. Hold it in - sometimes it makes a noise and resets it.

If that doesn't work, push the Clean button and the Cancel button simultaneously and hold for about 30 seconds. The “locked” light should disappear. If it is working, you’ll hear a mechanical hum as it resets.

Placing date/time on the photo

Oddly enough Canon thought that people would only want date stamps on "Postcards". The date stamp options is only allowed when you select the "Postcard" size (1600X1200) in the function menu.

I hope this helps!
