Question about Canon Cameras
To start ensure that this problem happens when batteries are fully charged.
If the camera had stayed in a moisty place or in same way it had received damage from liquid getting inside the camera, then that can be the problem.
If you have multiple problems, that can be due to a faulty main board or to a problem with the ribbon cables located at the front side of the camera.
Here the picture from a different camera, a powershot A70 that has bult in flash unit, your camera flash is different, but is still connected with a ribbon cable. I think the same cable controls also may control the lens, in that case that is the reason for the blurry picture.
If the problem are the internal ribbon connector you will need to disassemble the camera. If you have no practice you may end up damaging the camera.
