at the night setting the shutter speed is really slow so when you are holding it by hand your hands move and create those lines from the light

You need a tripod for night shots.

I don't think anything wrong with the camera. I would try more. In some instances (I have canon s200, old one) I found without flash also delivers some better results(obviously you need more light though)

Experiment a little. Even if the camera is messed, Canon(or the retailer you got it from) has good warranty.

aperture time was long, you need a tripod for night shots...

You have moved the camera before it finished to take the pics..

I try to use a tripod when ever possible, makes the pics (even daytime) look highly focused.
