Hi I think that some of the settings on my camera must be wrong - I keep getting a shaky hand symbol and the photos that I take are really bad quality and blurred.
I dont have shaky hands and the camera used to work just fine - is there anything that can be done because I am getting to the point of throwing away a camera thats only a year or so old.

several things can cause this including a bad ribbon cable and a worn out button pad, or just a bad switch. Time for a tech to look at it. If you're feeling froggy, open it up and replace the button pad. Canon will send you another and may not even charge you.
This is just a reminder, that with its current settings, the camera would use an exposure time that is too long for clean hand-held shots. It does not mean that the shot actually will be blurry, so e.g. if you are using a tripod and shooting a static subject, you can safely ignore it. To get rid of it, either enable the flash, use better lighting or use a higher ISO setting (which of course produces more noise).
Image stabilizer (IS) will help you stabilize your shaky hand when photographing static object in dim light environment. When photographing moving things such as humans, camera IS will not and cannot not freeze them unless you use high shutter speed. If your camera allows high ISO and manual shutter speed setting, experiment indoors with it. Just remember, high shutter speed freezes motion and IS can only steady your shaky hand for so long. Tripod can only steady your camera not the subject if the subject is a human being.
Have a look on the manual, there will be all the On Screen Symbols description there, if you didn't got yours, you can also download free from here.
Have a look at it, your problem will be solved.

check to see if your image stabilization is on (shaky hand). turn this feature off. also check the properties of your image to see if the iso is set to automatic. high iso, such as 800, will cause this in cameras
Blurness doesn't happens because of the number of the pixels in the cameras. Is the picture on the computer screen blur/the cameras screen or the lens hole?
I suggest you to set the camera on Automatic station (red camera on the wheel) in day light,try to stay still see how blur the photos are when you are not playing with the parameters. it it's still blurry it could be the pulley block next to the -eyepiece. roll it until it's not blur.
Hello The hand symbol is alerting you that the camera will have to use a slow shutter speed to get enough light into the camera. Try pointing the camera at something bright, and the hand will not show. Therefore, if the hand is on, then you probably need to use the flash.
That shake warning will appear whenever the camera is in a low-light situation where the shutter speed is low and the images may blur. If it's coming on even in bright light, maybe you set the shutter speed to a fixed low setting? Either way, you may be able to shut off the warning in the settings of the camera.
