No, Im afraid I also have this problem after the wife dropped our camera. I think its the result of a damaged/poor connection somewhere in the camea.

    The pink caste colud be a camera fault and for this you need to go to the Canon Technical Support team on thier website.
    It might result in a new camera from then if it turns out to be faulty,

    Do you use an image editor?
    A simple editor will correct any colour problem how ever causes once learn to use.
    For a free basic one Google 'Picasa'
    and download and install it.
    May tack a little bit of learning, but well worth the effort.

your settings are wrong on the brightness and contrast

some of the power shots set up by using KELVINS as the method of balancing the warmth or coolness of a picture. Others have a setting for OUTSIDE Inside Halogen and fluro If its set on halogen and you are taking pics outside it will have a red tinge.

Fluro a blue tinge...

check the manual for the right selections

Pink Edges in Photos

It is called 'purple fringing' or chromatic aberration. It is quite common with digital cameras, especially those with small sensors. Sending the camera in for repair would not help at all. It can be removed, quite labouriously, in photoshop. Usually it is very seldom so obvious that it would require corrective work. When it is, it is often only in a small part of the image making it not that time consuming to fix in photoshop.
