Clean your lens?  ;)

Sorry could not resist.  This sux.  Over the past few days I have lost 
quite a few shots because my brand new 1DIV keeps locking up with an 
err20 code and then when I restart it the settings have changed to weird 
ISOs and apertures and in the heat of shooting I do not always notice 
it.  I am getting REALLY tired of this. Nothing like having the camera 
jump to ISO 1000 and f 2.8 in bright sun on white sand beaches... Thank 
God I go home for a few weeks tomorrow and can ship the piece of crap 
back to Canon and hope they will get it fixed.
