Can anyone tell me what to do please? Thanks Gladys
It appears that the image sensor (CCD) has stopped functioning. There is no fix for the part, only repair, and replacement of the part. If you perform an internet search, type in "bad CCD purple images", you should get several sites with the information in detail. Here's a link to some info also: http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/Canon-Powershot-CCD-Image-Sensor-Service-Notice/
