Screen and photos are purple-M575

If you view this pics in the oc, the same thing? If your answer is YES, its possible that you have a problem whit the CCD (Charge Coupled Device); this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

Cannon PowerShot A80. Pictures come out with red tint and what appears to be horizontal lines across complete image. However, record video without problem.

If camera shows previously taken pictures in playback mode and does notshow live view to take fresh pictures then it is ccd imager chipfailure. CCD imager will be replaced in your Canon A80 camera.

FinePix F470 Lines on images and faded colors on photo mode.

You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid

When taking pics they end up pinky/purple with horizontal lines

It's a loose connection between the CCD and motherboard - a very common problem with these cameras. Unless you have experience in camera repairs, you should give it to a local repair shop - don't let them say you it's a motherboard problem or something like that, it's 99% just a loose connection. I have repaired hundreds of these. I work in a Kodak service center.
