Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera ?

LCD screen turns purple in shooting mode. Photos can be taken. Most are Ok, some slightly out of focus or faded coloration. If switched to play back mode and then back top shooting mode, display is Ok for a short time then degrades from top center in a V shape to a purple line display.

Broken My camera fell from less than a foot off the ground, and there is no external damage.

When camera gets turned on, the lens goes in and out of focus a few times and then screen turns blue and displays "D : 5f08 5e02" and does not go back to shooting pictures again.
