There's no set time limit for the life of CCDs...if you do stuff like point it at the sun there will be more chance of damage.

The damage is in stuck pixels, dead pixels, and more hot pixels.

After a lot of use the TFT screens will dim as they are lit up by the equivalent of a fluorescent light.

Mechanics, especially retractable and zoom lenses, are more prone to breaking down.
