When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint.

After I have detached my external flash (Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622), my Canon EOS 60D does not recognize the fact that the external flash is already detached. Thus, this does not allow the built-in flash to pop out when needed. I have tried turning the power off and on again. The problem persists.
