Question about Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera
I don't know if this is too late to be of any help, but ...
I had the exact same problem and tried every imaginable thing to fix it, including calling an engineer out, all without success. Eventually someone asked me if I was using Canon own-brand ink and Canon own-brand photographic paper. Although I've never used anything other than Canon cartridges, I was using the cheapest photographic paper I could find at that time, it being the case that I'd honestly never thought it would make any difference. I tried using Canon own-brand photo paper and it fixed the problem instantly. It's dearer, but at least all my photographs don't have a 'lobsterish' tint to them ...

Is this when you've printed them, or on the camera screen?
If it's when you've printed them you may need to clean the print head of your printer.
You'd do this by going through your printer's 'toolbox', which should be accessable from a menu tree - my one starts with clicking the 'HP Solutions Center' icon on my desktop.
Never try to clean the printhead physically as it just makes the whole thing useless.
I hope this helps.
