Canon A430- Overexposure and Horizontal Lines

\015 I do have the same problem, which started after 7500 photos. Canon Service Center at Bangalore re-confirmed (after registering a complaint in their website) that the problem is with ribbon connector which connects the optical unit to base, but they told they can not replace it the connector alone. The entire Optical unit needs to be changed and the charges are Rs.3000. Is there any place in India/Bangalore where only Ribbon Connector Cable for Canon A430 is available? If yes, we can replace it ourselves. If not, discard this camera and buy a new one (other than Canon). I agree that Canon should be sensitive to flood of complaints they are receiving and should take it seriously to address it.\015

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.

I have 2 Canon Power Shot 70 cameras (one was a gift) The oldest I have owned for approximately 4 years...the other one slightly less. About one year ago while on vacation, the camera refused to take photos....all I got on the screen were a series of light pink-lavendar horizontal lines in a black background. Last week while at church camp the other camera did exactly the same thing!! Consumer Reports is recommending a Canon camera and at this point I am "gun-shy"! Do you have any suggestions?
