I was told that my Tecnik SE6TIE1GB/17 Dishwasher is a bosch. I have seen the news today that some models have been recalled can you tell me the full E-NR number please


The recall is only for freestanding or semi intergrated d/w. If your control panel is along the top of the door it is not subject to the recall.

Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see the following:

Cannon s1is turns off even with new batteeries


Try lithium batteries. Sometimes regular batteries even when new cannot run a digital camera.

Try setting your camera to mass storage instead ptp.
Reinstall the software of canon.Also see if the camera is in transfer mode rather in shooting mode.
Check if your card is accidently locked somehow.
Always try to load original driver cd and software that came with the camera.

I agree with you, although I would not rely on Kodak. I find their digital products don't stand up to much. Based on what I see come through my digital lab, I recommend Canon, Casio and Sony

Cannon


go to the canon web site they have an advisory out on this I just got mine back actually they kept my S1 IS and sent me a new S5 IS because "they did not have the part and wanted to expedite my repair"

Here is another site I found when I encountered my problem
http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1164376280.html

I sent my camera in per Canons instructions, received an e-mail a few days later(1/9/08) confirming that they would repair it a few more days later (1/16/08)I received another e-mail confirming that it had been repaired and shipped. Today (1/17/08) I got it and to my very pleasant surprise the box contained a new S5 IS!!! I will be sending them a very nice THANK YOU for it after I post this.

PS: e-mail accepting repair 1/9/08
1/16/08 e-mail stating it shipped on 1/15/08,
received 1/17/08 via FED EX

Black screen cant take photos


I had this problem today with my S1 IS. I did a google search for similar symptoms and found that many digital camera models made between 2002 and 2004 have a CCD issue. I called Canon's Customer Support (1-800-828-4040) and they offered to fix the problem for free. Hope this helps!
