Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera ?

Date/Time Stamp option is greyed-out

\015 This feature used to work. I noticed last week however that the date was not imprinted on my printed pictures. I checked the user's guide and went into the setup to enable it and as I scrolled down the menu list it jumped over the date stamp option not allowing access to this feature that I had just 6 weeks ago.\015\012\015\012Any help/suggestions?\015
