The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve

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?

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures.

I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.
