Canon PowerShot A85 has a blank screen

I erased the photos on my memory card because it was full and after that my camera turns on and the cannon logo comes up, but then the screen goes black. How do I fix that?

Hi,
It is known problem of ccd imager chip failure in Canon A85 camera and ccd imager chip will be replaced by local camera repair shop to solve this issue.
Since camera wont show live view/ blank screen so same gets saved as picture in memory card that is why no picture/ image in playback either.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Memory cards are storage devices, so there is no highest storage cards. Your choice of storage cards depend on how large you want your file to be before uploading. So you can use up to 4G or more memory card for your Canon Powershot A85

When I turn my PowerShot A85 on the Canon Logo appears on the screen for a second then the screen goes blank. I can still take a picture, but can't use the display. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Does your camera have a button or switch on it that says something like this: "LCD Backlight" and "On/Off" for the toggle switch that goes with that LCD Backlight?
If I turn off the LCD Backlight on my digital camera, I cannot see anything, but I can take pictures anyway. When I turn that Backlight back on, I see everything I point the camera at, and can take pictures without problems.
The Backlight helps you to see what it is at which your are pointing your camera.
Makes a big difference. And you can accidentally hit that switch and turn it off without being aware you have done so.

By the way, don't tell Canon that you dropped the camera. Sounds like the CCD imager was about to go bad anyway, and the drop just accelerated this.
