look harder on the internet for the free solution.
fixya has alot of nerve asking me for the solution when fixya wont help
until i pay.. so i for sure found the solution and when fixya wants to shell out 20.00 i will give the premiuim answer and not even the cut rate solution for 10.00 that will take two maybe three days to arrive to you via email, maybe. yeah i found the solution to the problem i had and you wont get it from me on fixya.

Safegaurd mode

Unfortunately this is a repair issue. There are several failures that can occur, none of which will be resolved without service, that create this safeguard situation. Often the fpc cable which carries sensor information to the micro has been injured and that requires repair. Good luck, magic seadog
