Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera
First check to make sure the kids fingerprints are not all over the lens. If the lens is clean, then your kids are probably not at fault. This really sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110
By the way, I also have an old A300 that Canon fixed for me this way.

To reset your camera back to the original settings, please switch ON your camera and press (keep it pressed) the MENU button for 10 seconds. You will be asked to "reset settings to default". press the left/right buttons and select OK
