Canon PowerShot S400 Screen Problem

\015 I had this camera for years, and a couple of months ago, when i turnedo n the camera, the digital screen was all blurred with pinks lines. A couple of weeks ago, i turned on the camera trying to figure out again how to fix this, and the pink blurry thing was gone! I used it for another 4 hours until i turned it off. I turned it back on again the next day and it turned back to pink. It switches this same way many times, but always goes back to the pink. When i take picture, it comes out fine, but the videos show the blur. Is there a solution?\015
