Olympus FE-230 digital camera; red lines and blurr across the screen

\015 My 1-year old Olympus FE-230 digital camera was working fine, and then all of a sudden red lines and blurr appeared across the screen. I sent it for a repair estimate and they said it needs a new sensor, which will cost aout $180 (I live overseas, prices are higher here). 3 questions: (1) is it necessarily the sensor? if so, can we 'reset' it somehow ourselves? (2) if it may be some other problem, what could it be and can we fix it ourselves somehow? (3) if it needs a new sensor, how much should it cose and where can we get a good price for repair; we could do this in the US, in a place near 90035 (LA), or 10463 (Bronx, NY).\015

Olympus Stylus 1030SW. The LCD monitor is pixelated. The pictures that are taken with the camera are crisp and perfect. When reviewed on the camera, they are very pixelated.
