Re: My pictures are purple
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

take out driveshaft and use a press or vice and a socket to press the caps off the old u joint. the inner or outer snap rings have to be removed first of course. Many GM vehicles don't have snap rings from factory and are held in place with plastic. The plastic will break loose when you press the cups and you will have to use snap rings for the replacement u joint
its possible something in this DLP is on the lens that projects the picture onto the screen or the mirror (do not touch it) or between the lens and the inside of the screen---anything will if there show up in the picture.
In some cases I have used compressed air to dust these out but carefully.
None of these Canon Powershot cameras have a lens which will remove. The ring is only for a special kind of add on lens for either wide angle or telephoto, which will only fit this camera or possibly a few other models.
Never try to unscrew the lens, you will ruin the lens permanently.
This is not a hard procedure, but you have to feel comfortable with DIY projects. First empty the bean container. Vacuum out any remaining beans. Remove the philips screws from the hopper. Lift the hopper off. Vacuum any loose beans out. Remove the rubber gasket. You may clean this with a mild soap solution. Remove the grind adjustment lever- lift straight up with index fingers under the flange. Turn the outer ring with the holes counterclockwise, lift the center ring with the ears straight up when the outer ring is loose enough. The ring with the ears is the upper burr. Clean with a brush. Don't use water or other solutions. Vacuum the beans chamber and brush clean. Replace the upper burr ring matching the ears with the grooves. Turn the outer ring clockwise until it stops. Pull the inner ring to be sure it is locked. Now turn the outer ring back 13 clicks. Replace the rubber gasket. Replace the grinder adjustment lever- drop the lever flange inside on the outer ring with the lever grip loop over the top at #4. Press the flange with two fingers while supporting the outer ring from below. This seems tricky, but be patient. Replace the hopper and screws. Do any grinder adjustments while grinder is running with beans, it may take a few shots to be back at your preference grind! Good luck!
What happened is that the camera got turned on in your pocket or somewhere and the lens got jammed trying to open up. The problem is that the outer lens ring is not turning all the way and the camera doesn't fully load.
Solution 1: Put the camera into the charger, press the power button so the green light is flashing, unplug it from the charger. The camera will try to realign its lens. (You might have to do this a few times.)
Solution 2: Manually help turn the outer lens ring clockwise when it turns on.
Front element? You can remove this without alignment worries. The lens zoom mechanism tends to **** in the dust.
Have a look at the front element outer ring. There are 3 black screws. Remove these using jewellers screwdriver (y'know, a very small posi-drive one!). Remove this plastic outer ring. Now you can see three small silver screws, that are about the same size - when you try to unscrew them, they just rotate...
This is as they are not screws, but as mentioned elsewhere - they are plugs (if you notice, they are slightly under the casing. Get a small flat bladed screwdriver, and gently prise them out. Now you can just drop the front element into something sensible - like a microfibre cloth (give it a clean whilst you're there.
Get a rocket blower (NOT canned air), and blow away the dust, and you can use the microfibre cloth (or similar) on the small inner front element.
Then replace the outer front element - you will see where it drops into place - there are plastic guide tabs. Push back the silver 'screw' plugs.
Then screw back on the plastic outer ring and you're done - takes 20 minutes at the most.
I have a very similar problem possibly the same one, what the problem is with mine is the actual ON-OFF-Favorites ring you use to turn the camera on and off with is loose and so if I turn the switch too far ON it actually turns off and anytime I brush or move the outer ring (which is hard not to do when the shutter button is in the middle of it) the camera turns off and on again. I sent mine to a KODAK authorized repair center and there estimate was an outrageous $144 to and I quote "replace switch board / take board". I hope you have better luck (or are still under warranty) than I did. Hope I could be of some assistance, Matt mattyfu.com
