This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S230, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

Found what I needed on http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/canon-digital-cameras-showing-black.html, thanks. Am now in contact with Canon for what I hope will be a free repair (although in Australia they require the customer to be freight when sending the camera to Sydney).

LCD screen only has flashes of light


Does the camera really not take photos, or are the photos black or distorted? If black or distorted photos, then it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Canon Powershot A70 Digital


When I got my A70 I got a CD with the software. If I connect the camera with USB cable to the computer, set the little lever on the back for the camera to display whatever pictures are in it, and turn the camera on, the computer recognizes the camera, opens the software and leads me through the process.
If you have some other photo software than the Canon software, it should still work.

A70 Flash does not work


You can buy a used A70 with everything working for about $50, and it'll almost definitely cost you more than that to fix the flash. If the reconditioned Canon they're offering you is around that price, and they'll give you a warranty, and you love the A70 too much to upgrade, I'd say take them up on it. I love my A70 too, but I recently got an A540 for my wife and now I usually use it also (when she lets me). The lighter weight (2 AA batts instead of 4) and the larger LCD monitor screen really make a difference.
