Canon Powershot A95: image distorted, unclear and pink

\015 A couple of weeks ago, an otherwise excellent outdoor photo had some pale horizontal lines on the upper part of the image - a dozen perhaps. Since then the camera has become unusable, the viewfinder image being virtually unreadable with vertical elongation and the only colours being shades of pink. Batteries are good,; have returned settings to Default, to no avail.\015\012\015\012The camera is about 5 years old and has given faultless service and great pleasure. I want to keep using it!\015\012\015\012Gerald Hendrie\015

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.

Now that problem has digressed considerably to distortion. first the center 1/3 of the image on the vieing screen will start to take on a pink hue. then the same area will appear to "melt" with pixels of the original image streeking down. sometimes I take a picture and it comes out perfectly

Recently, my Canon Powershot A95 has had an intermittent LCD display problem. While beginning to frame and focus a shot, the image streaks from edge to edge of the screen. If the shutter is snapped, that is the image recorded. The image looks like the subject is rapidly moving, or as though it is a time-lapse photo. Could this be a CCD (chip)issue?
