I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

This was my first digital camera - and what a disappointment! The batteries drain almost immediately, and never try to use

Kodak V803 I think this is due to the camera being dropped: The camera switches on but all that appears on the viewscreen is a white light accompanied by black patches of distortion.

The display screen shows images very distorted like it is too bright and the image "runs" it's really strange. Almost like when you look at a heart beat monitor and it "spikes".

The image is clear when looking at the settings, but the display is very distorted.
