Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

Poor resolution with horizontal lines

\015 I have a Canon Powershot A95. There seems to be a problem with the lcd\015\012image after the shot is taken. It has a poor "purple looking"\015\012resolution with horizontal lines. It came up after I was changing\015\012settings. I figured I must have changed something by accident and now\015\012whatever I change- it remains the same with horizontal lines on the\015\012pic. Is there a simple fix on functions or settings perhaps? thanks\015
