Unfortunately what you have described indicates that there is a problem with the ccd (the light sensitive chip that produces the image)or the connection to it thats why you are facing this type of problem . So please contact Canon service center because this type of CCD repairing or replacing is not possible at your home. I apologize for this inconvenience.
