Worth a shot I think.
Thanks wavemachine for your interest. I cannot get to the shutter on this camera as it is sealed. Well, there are tiny screws all over the place but I wouldn't know where to begin and I don't have the tools or the skill. I have tried a different card as well, just to see if I had been using a corrupted one but to no avail. I see the pink stain is now getting worse and is virtually covering the whole image.
I think that I will say farewell when the dustman calls on Thursday. So sad. I've come over all dewy eyed.
PS I've got two batteries Cannon N8-1LH which if anyone can use I will be more than happy to send if you pay the postage.
I have a little Leica D-Lux3 which is superb and can take splendid pictures but I will miss the eyepiece on the Cannon and it was so petite
