Answers :

This is caused by the CCD circuit, this is what senses the light and colors and captures the image, as a user there is nothing you can do to fix this, Canon doesn't sell repair guides or parts to the public, only canon factory repair centers can get these items, they do have an exchange program where u can send the camera in and they send u another camera, not sure of the charge on this camera, it runs about $100-$200 on most models. refer to your user guide for factory repair centers nation wide.

My IXUS V2 has suddenly developed a serious fault. When I switch on, the digital display shows a confusing array of lines and colours, with the actual picture barely discernable. If I take a picture, it comes out as a confused image of colours and lines. The view through the optical viewfinder is fine so I imagine I have a serious electronic problem. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
