Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
The camerawas working fine until today. Now I can review images already on camera on the LED, but when I try to take a picture both the LED and the photo shows up as distored pinkish blur...can you tell me what's wrong and how I can fix it?
thanks. I got this fixed at the canon service centre free of cost although my warranty had expired. the defective ccd imager was the problem

My goodness, nobody has FixYa'ed this yet? OK, I will then.
Each of your problems definitely sound like a defective CCD imager. You're all in luck, as 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:

I found the same fault, but for me it is intermittent. I have tried all sorts of things to clear it, but the best seems to be leave it turned off for a while. I bought my Ixus 400 in Sept 03 and the fault started in Jun 07. It shows already taken pictures with no problem on review on the LED screen, but the screen blurs (with motion) and records that same blurred image.
