Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair.

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!
