    I bought various 2nd hand ixus500 camera's because we like the quality of its sensor, but three out of four the photochip have gone wrong during the last three months, same as yours.
    We think it has to do with stability of of the chip it has come to the end of its lifetime? Could canon have done this on purpose?

I had the same problem with my camera, suddenly the LCD and picture shows some pink image overlay bands on the top usually. When focusing the bands sometimes disappear. But they always shows on image as on the LCD. Canon seems to fix this problem as goodwill (guarantee is not valid anymore) so I sent my camera to service for this. Hope they accept this otherwise it is broken, LCD common problem. (Solution or same problem we will see)

The lcd screen distorts & my pictures show up pink on the display screen on my ixus 500


If the menus and icons look normal, but images are distorted or discolored, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See Canon's service notice regarding this issue here. Canon will repair your camera at no cost regardless of warranty. Contact them at your regional Canon service agency.

I had the same problem with the Canon PowerShot S410. I called Canon and they said it was a known issue. They are going to send me a return, paid postage label and replace the sensor at no cost. Canon rocks!
