Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera ?

The image I get is not clear

\015 The image is not clear even before shooting. Colours ar not eight; the forms are not right; everything is confused not focused and far from the reality. I don't think it is a LCD problem, because the bird, when I connect, is clear and right. If I don't use the LCD monitor for looking, but the lens, it is OK; but the picture is allways unfocused, with strange colours and forms. I saw already the lens, but it semms to me clean.\015
