I have a Powershot A85 and am having the same problem. This might pertain to your camera. Good Luck!

Download your pictures on your computer. If the lines appear on the computer, then the problem is with the CCD itself and must be fixed by a technician. If the pictures are fine, the problem is with the camera's display electronics which also needs to be fixed by the manufacturer but it doesn't need to. It is mainly an annoyance, but a frustrating one I agree. I suspect that it is the second case. Regards, Denis
