Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera ?

Still shot has many small white lines across it, giving a washed out look. Sometimes a rapidly clicking sound. Earlier, photos presented as shades of pinks istead of images. Video still works.

Yesterday I took some pictures and when I reviewed on camera they all show up. However when I go to download on computer, one photo wont show up. It just shows as an icon. It also has sound on it which I dont know how to remove. I have tried to copy the photo, but it copies with sound and I still cant open the image. Is there anything I can do to get image?

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well.
