How do I reset a Whirlpool Duet washer? About 4 years old, just has the "Control Locked" light on...

reset is not necessary.  on front panel you will find a button marked something along the lines of child lock or lock out or panel lock...  press and hold that button for 3 - 5 seconds and that should release controls to you.

Factory reset Cannon PowerShot S2 IS

I found this solution elsewhere, so I can't take credit for it. It seems a small piece of dirt gets stuck between the camera case and the button to take the picture. The button doesn't release fully, and it acts like the shutter button is pressed halfway down. Try running your finger over the top of the button in a circle to release it.
