Artifacts in images from Canon Power Shot A710 IS digital camera

Suddenly my A710, which has always worked splendidly, is producing images with fine colored horizontal streaks.  Sometimes they are red, other times blue.
The camera was dropped, but worked fine for a while after that.  The artifacts didn't show up until I had taken about 25-30 images in a single shooting session.  However, they are still appearing in images, even after having turned the camera off for more than 24 hours.  
Is there a simple test I can perform to tell if the camera has been damaged and will need to be replaced?

If the camera had been dropped could be a lose connection, os some broken contact after the shock.

The camera must be taken apart to know the cause of the problem, and this will cost money already.

If the camera received a shock, sure that can be related to the fault.

Camera Canon A710 IS started to ask set time date when turned on


When the camera is left without power for an extended period of time, the time and date settings are gone. You need to reset them and when you're finished, click the set/ok button twice.

How to overcome Grainy photos on some in door shots with my Canon A710


The reason for this is that the auto scene function chooses which ISO (light sensitivity) is needed to have a fast enough shutter speed to capture a still image (instead of a ghosted image). There is no way to change this. You can switch modes to P and specify the ISO you want to use (100-200 will give you a clear, non-grainy image, 400+ will be grainy). To capture a still image in low light with a low ISO, you need to use a tripod. Hope this helps.

Canon Power Shot A710 is


The hand with parenthesis is your image stabilization. It sounds like if your images are turning out black, you may need service.

Try hitting your display button a few times and see if anything shows up on the screen.
