PowerShot A85 Problem CCD sensors???

Dear Cannon Experts,
I have a camera PowerShot A85 and unfortunately since this morning I am not able to obtain any nice picture, it seems that the CCD Sensor does not recognize appropriately the colors. The colors are shifted to red spectrum.
Apparently all functions and display are working correctly. The pictures that I have shot previously are shown correctly in the display.
Thank for your attention!
Best regards from Zurich,
Marcelo

The CCD is faulty ... it is a faulty designed CCD ... Canon had recalled the product for a certain period just check if it is still on and get it replaced ..... or if you need a quick fix ...get the CCD replaced by your local repair man
