What's wrong with my DS?

The DS has developed some issues, as of late, so I'm wondering if anybody know's what's going on.

1. Sometimes, when I turn the camera on, I'll get a "memory card error" message in the LCD. This has happened when I've had different memory cards in it.
2. Sometimes, when I go to turn it off, it won't completely shut off, meaning that the LCD screen will remain lit.
3. I'm starting to notice blue streaks in my pics (see attached for an example).

Thanks!
Heather

I hope not--I just got it about 1 1/2 months ago.

EDIT: I just got done giving it a little test by adjusting the ISO. The streaking doesn't show up when I have it set to ISO 200-800, but it does show up at ISO 1600 & 3200. I guess that as long as I keep it set at lower ISOs, then I'll be OK.

Heather, to to try PERHAPS to add a little value...

Have you shot higher ISO and not seen these streaks? What were the conditions? Does this happen with RAW and with .jpg?

The white balance is off in that shot. I don't know the DS, but if it has a preset how does it behave when preset is "on?" Same question vis. custom white balance.

I doubt it really has anything to do with WB, but give it a try? I don't have a DS and have never seen anything quite like this.

Rockwell notes "streaks" in high ISO shots using the Canon 5D Mark II.

If my memory serves me correctly, I think this was the first time I had taken it over ISO800. I had the white balance set at AWB and was shooting in RAW format.

I'll have to play around with it some more to see if I can make it go away. In most cases, I generally don't go over ISO800, so I can work with that.

Wow, that looks eerily like this thread, which appears to need the sensor replaced.
