Question about Canon Cameras
A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image).
If seen on both your pc monitor as well as the camera's LCD then it's likely a CCD issue and it's no wonder that it will be more expensive than buying a new digicam. This is why you need to be exceptionally careful when taking care of your camera since most are uber sensitive to being damaged by the slightest miss-handling.
CCD image sensor problem occurs in this and other brands; in the next link, for example, check a recall on the Sony T1 and other cameras built around 2002-2004 with a CCD chip problem. The recall is good til 3/31/2009. Only $15 shipping charge ( I dont know if they keep this price ). Here is the link: Sony-Asia/Support/Announcement
In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; Check this links that could give you additiona details:
Hope this helps.
