Fuzzy lines across picture on Canon Ixus 500

\015 The camera switches on ok, but when i try to take pictures there appears to be fuzzy lines across the live view display to the extent that it is impossible to tell what is in the picture, If i wave my hand infront of the lens you can see movement but cannot make out any picture. The picture taken appears exactly as on view display.\015

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve
