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:

Screen flickers and pictures have lines across them on my lumix DMC-TZ3


The camera is probably damaged, this also happend to my DMC-TZ5 as well after a few (5-6) years of heavy use but without any visible damage, a repair is most likely more expensive than just buying one of the new lumix cameras which have also improved A LOT, so you wont be disappointed!

How do I repair a streaky lcd screen?


It depends. are the streaks from the picture, or are they on on the inside or out side of the screen of the outer screen. if its out side use vinegar and newspaper, if its inside like *** smoke (brown stains in streaks) you might be able to take the front off if your lucky! and clean it. They make it hard so you can't do this so you have to buy a new one. They can make them to last a life time now, but how would they make a profit then. top tip buy with your credit card and do not buy extended warenty,(in shop) your card covers this and you can get it for 50% less on line after. pluss you have loads of time to take it back, refund garentied with the new laws. I think 14 days, not sure?

Streaks of red and green flashing across screen when turned on.


Well I guess you mean purchased December 2006 yes? In which case you could be in luck- return it to the seller as defective - which it is. If older- contact the maker website - this is a defective CCD There has been a recall on certain brands of camera that use the same CCD which is failing early.
