have opened my camera. (it was useless anyway, right?) GUess what I found: in the lens-assembly there is a ribbon cable that controls the two solenoids, one of the shutter, one of the diafragm (or what it's called). This one is broken, the electric circuits are discontinued and so there is no control. It seems to be a design error since it broke exactly where the ribbon bends at 180 degrees almost with no place for a loop most of the focussing time. Can anyone find out where to find a NEW replacement ribbon cable?

Tend to agree with you that it's a common design problem for the A430, but it's a very different issue than CCD failure mentioned in you referenced article.
Please see this Fixya post instead of the one that you mention above. Unfortunately, Canon has yet to officially recognize this A430 specific problem. But if you reference this Fixya post, (include a link), when contacting Canon (if in US, email is CareCenter@cits.canon.com. You'll have to research www.canon.com to find an equivalent UK email contact), who knows you might get lucky
