I had a problem with my PowerShot A300 where the LCD screen looked as if the image was "melted" with a reddish tone. I checked many different websites and finally got to a link on the http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819 website and indicated to contact the company directly to send unit in to be repaired.
