My canon A470 does not take outdoors pictures they all are white and with lines. when i take inside the house in the dark they are fine but in the light or outside they are white and with lines.

It sounds like you have a broken / faulty camera. But try resetting it back to factory settings. Open the menu or setup menu, and find the reset option, do that and see if it improves, or it might say defaults or factory settings.\015\012\015\0 ... Digital Cameras

Upon placing the tripod for a new photo, I observed that the LCD monitor had turned white with intermittent horizontal flashing black lines.

I have purple horizontal lines across my screen when i try to take a picture. When i snap the picture that is all i get. The memory card seems to be fine in that all the pix stored on it look fine when i check on the camera. What could be wrong? The only thing of note is that i had the memory card alone in my cold car for a few days . I tried putting a new memory card in the camera and that didn't change anything either with the purple horizontal lines.
