Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

CCD problem and then lens problem

My canon A95 would display purple images after 2 years of its use.
I got it corrected wiht free replacement as it was a CCD issue and after 1.5 years I am not able to take any pictures and the canon service says its issue with lense and it would cost 70% of the amount I paid back in 2004.
Is it canon`s marketing strategy?

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

If the symptoms are similar as it was ccd imager problem then contact again with Canon for again free replacement of ccd imager chip in camera.
Can you post an image here that shows purple problem?
And if its lens problem as said by Canon then new camera would be better option instead of spending on its repair.
Thanks.

Pictures turning out dark, LCD not adjusting


CCD sensor problems usually present themselves as either a blank image, purple cast, or lines through the image. Incorrect exposures are usually a result of the lens shutter failing to open and close correctly. Typically, the lens is not servicable and they need to be replaced.
