How get parts or repair canon a75 ccd, for non USA residents
I have a Powershot a75 since November 2004. Now when I try to take a picture or take some video I just see a distorted pink image.
Where I live, Dominican Republic, we do not have a canon service center.
I went to a generic service center to check the camera, they just see it, and they told me it was a ccd problem.
They estimated the camera repair about 155 dollars, 108 for new ccd and 47 for the service repair. I think this is too expensive. I can buy a new camera with accesories for less than that.
What can I do?
Can I buy the ccd replacement? Do you know the specification of this part and where can I buy it?
Is it cost effective to send the camera to USA service center or another canon service center in Latin America?
I will appreciate any help I can receive.

Contact Canon. I had the same problem and eventhough it was outside of warranty they fixed it for free because they recognized this as one of their own problems with the camera.
Unfortunately I have the problem again. So I am going to see if Canon will fix it again for me.
