my S1 keeps showing a flickering purplish screen when i try to take pictures or videos. anyone had a similar problem? would it be worth it to go service the camera?

Looks like the batch of cameras that have faulty CCD. Canon and Sony M'sia was replacing them FOC.

I think can forget about repairing. Most likely repair cost for CCD is ex.
Start shopping for a new, updated model already ;)

Can't remember but I think there is a longer list. Since I do not own any Canon I cannot confirm it.

No harm going down to ask them to check.
I brought my gf's A95 down to check, which had some CCD problem as well. Its not listed as one of the models with problem, and the A95 was 2yrs old (ie. no more warranty), but they fixed it FOC. And send it to my house via SingPost FOC as well :)
