sounds like a shutter leaf dropping into the image. however, they are usually horizontal and more likely to manifest when in landscape mode. (horizontal, normal)
try using flash pointed up to ceiling.
also, could need to check for auto sync speed setting. usually 1/125 to 1/60. if its off, it could be catching the shutter in the wrong place.
check manual for settings for using flash.

The symptoms you're describing sound like a classic case of having a faiiled CCD image sensor.
First try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.
If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.
If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have a CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired.
Hope this helps.

This may be a manufacturing defect. Canon will repair an A80, regardless of warranty status, if it exhibits particular sensor problems.

Canon is fixing this problem on my camera with no charge, It is a problem with the CCD imager that they either replace or send you a new refurbished (later model) camera). Sorry I don't have the specifics. Check the Canon website for details or call them. Thanks to this website for all the information!!
