You have a bad CCD imaging sensor. Not worth repairing. Very common problem with most point and shoot cameras. Suggest you buy a new camera.

Your camera is giving you the classic symptoms that indicate the image sensor has failed, the only fix is to replace the sensor and it's not cost effective unless the camera is under warranty.

Note that some models were fitted with sensors which failed prematurely, if this is the case then your camera may be subject a "soft" recall whereby owners who complain are offered a free repair, even if the original warranty has expired. All you do is pay for shipping.

As you haven't stated your exact model of Canon then I cannot advise you whether your sensor has failed prematurely, but it's expected to last for a minimum of five years on most Canon models.

Purple tinged camera screen


all you have to do is, (Now, I know this may sound crazy but it will help) Take apart your camera. Disconnect the black cord wrapped around the blue cord. Pull out the yellow cord out and throw it away. That yellow cord is a virus which is causing your screen to go purple. Now reconnect the black cord and unwrap it from around the blue cord. This will cause your screen to not only turn back to normal but to hold 2x the space of pictures you would usually hold. If this doesn't work, then stop being lazy and buy yourself a new camera. Yes, I'm talking to you granny!!



Good day my fellow American citizens. I really do hope this works. Thank you for your time. ;)

Shooting mode will not operate


Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
