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

Images have pink overlay

\015 Pictures with my Canon S500 suddenly have a pink overlay.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem with my camera, suddenly the LCD and picture shows some pink image overlay bands on the top usually. When focusing the bands sometimes disappear. But they always shows on image as on the LCD. Canon seems to fix this problem as goodwill (guarantee is not valid anymore) so I sent my camera to service for this. Hope they accept this otherwise it is broken, LCD common problem. (Solution or same problem we will see)
