When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint. If I try to take a picture, the picture is streaky or pink. Is this the problem that Canon will fix free of charge? The problem has been getting progressively worse since last year. What do you suggest?

Distorted image The image I see through the viewer is distorted(vertical lines). Also if I take a picture that comes up the same, all vertical lines?

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new. The lines go accross each picture like a venitian blind. The picture looks fine when displayed immediately after being taken, but the lines are there when I display and scroll through the pictures. I have a finepix fujifilm e900 digital camera.

Then unfortunately this is a problem with the image sensor on the camera. It would cost more to fix than to just purchase a new one. If you do go for a new one please recycle the old one at a location that takes e-waste. Sorry for the bad news. ... Digital Cameras
