Faulty Lens? Sometimes when looking through the LCD screen the colours appear blended, overlapping and blotchy which makes it difficult to get a clear view of the item to be photographed. upon turning on (sliding open lense cover) screen view is distorted, "stretched", and item to be photographed is almost unidentifiable. Camera operates but pictures taken are "stretched" and distorted. However, stored pictures can be retrieved and are normal. Any advice?

I've got an A-75 digital (Canon) When pushing down on the shutter button, the orange light is on next to the viewing window. It will not take a photograph and the flash does not work. I looked through the manual and it said something about the flash charge. When I attempt to take a photo the image has green squares throughout the viewing screen as if they are focusing screens.
