Any idea how to fix it? Is it the sensor or something else?

Open totally the cassete look for paper jam inside that might cover the sensor.
Remove cassete and look for black plastic actuator located on top of paper when cassete is inserted, it might be broken.
If all are ok , press as follow to reset the malfunction [off] while pressing [ Utility/Counter] turn [On] wait till the display appear then [trouble reset] it will appear OK on screen turn OFF/ON main power.

I am replacing the lock, what does the plastic rod hanging down from it do and does it need to be attached to anything

It attaches to a pull strap. The pull strap is in case the switch fails it can be pulled to get the door open. Most bosch pull straps are located behind the drain filter cover (lower right).

How do I attach camera strap to my SL30? Also,

the very thin part of the strap...twist it as you slide it under the bar.You may need a safety pin to catch it and bring it all the way to the other side. take your finger and open the end that you slid through...and slide the handle part through it..and pull.Not sure what bar code you are typing of...

Need to repair wrist strap attachment on ixus 960

First things first, the small piece that holds the strap, when broken is repairable, but it is best that you dont since there is a strong possibility that the line will give up. the best options you may have to look for are camera pouches that are designed for the camera.


hi clarkent,
  Should you want to attach a hand strap or lanyard to the phone, simply remove the phone’s back cover and lift up the right side of the ‘power’ button’s rubber to reveal the strap hole.

good luck


take off the battery and plug it in to the wall, it it moves or resets then try to close it like you use to, if not make sure the out side cover is open all the way, or if cover is attached to holder try to gently giggle it or see if something is hung up inside
