    I have the same problem with my A80. It started in Sept. 2008. First, ocassional fuzzy pinkish-purplish lines in the LCD, but the rest of the image in the display looked normal. Over about a week this problem deteriorated into a totally light pink hued display (when taking pictures) and pictures (when reviewing pictures I took). When not taking pictures (for example, when powering on the camera and you get the "Canon" logo) the display looks good. One time after my camera "died", while I was trying to figure out if I had inadvertantly messed up some setting to cause this (doubtful), I was able to take and review a couple of perfectly good photos. That success was short lived, however, and everything since has been a consistently lovely shade of washed-out pink. I don't know anything about these cameras, but it seems to me like these symptoms are similar to what's described in other posts as CCD image sensor failure which apparently Canon will fix for free. I haven't contacted them yet to find out, but I will.

    Same problem - happens a lot with outdoor shots. Started happening a month or two ago. The sky is pink and sometimes there are lines.

    Hi all,

    Help! I have the same problem, and I'm not terribly fond of pink :)
    My images don't have a pink bar, but they are all tinted pink. This is a new & sudden problem, and I haven't experienced any trouble before from my now 5yo camera.

    Assistance appreciated,

Grey spot on photo

NOISY PICTURES One of the major difference between a consumer digital camera and a digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) is that the former produces images with a lot of noise when using high ISOs and long exposure times, and the latter is practically noise-free (though high ISO performance varies depending on camera manufacturer and model). Noise is apparent by the presence of color speckles where there should be none. For example, instead of a blue sky, you notice faint pink, purple and other color speckles amongst the otherwise blue sky.

This maybe two problems, the pink color hue in the picture and lines from lens shutter problems. Your LCD is still good. You have to replace motherboard and lens.

Color off seems amber

Double check the wb settings in camera, (and be sure to check WB Shift) I'd suggest adding a Blue shift to your images to compensate for the Amber until you find something thats a decent trade off, if you can't eliminate the amber shift.
