Sorry but you cannot fix this: it's the classic symptom of a failed image sensor and can only be fixed by replacing the CCD.

Your camera is a six year old 3.2MP model and Canon will no longer have the parts. Even if you could get them, the repair would cost far more than you'd spend replacing the camera with a basic modern model which will far outperform your A75.

Six years from any digital camera is pretty amazing, so you've had your money's worth out of this one! Just don't expect a sub-£100 modern replacement to last anywhere near as long.

Sorry there's no realistic fix for this, but I hope that my reply has still been of assistance to you. Please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer.

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.

I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.
