Answers :

The lens isn't connecting to the mobo correctly, put some pressure on the lens (sounds bad but it works for me haha) it will work correctly until you shut it down for a while. Do not take it apart and attempt to fix it, it doesn't help ( I thought maybe the screws that held down the lens were loose or that the connectors needed to be cleaned but nope) a replacement lens should solve it, but why buy one of those when you can just put pressure on the lens before every use?
Your display screen is going bye bye or, you need a new back lite. thier is no way i can help you fix it, you are going to have to buy a new camera or take it in.

When trying to take a picture the color is off. It shows a purple tent on the screen, but there are old photos on there that are shown in normal color. It suddenly switched to giving everything the purple tent and has grainy lines going across the screen. I have tried to reset the settings to see if that would help but it hasn't. I haven't tried to upload any of the photos with the purple tent to see if they come up normal colors on my computer. Thank you!
