    I have a PowerShot A85 and have created great photos with it until now. I checked the features on the menu panel and all is well. The problem I'm experiencing is the LCD screen is dark. I can't see the image I am taking a picture of and when I take the picture nothing shows in the display.

This sounds like 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:

Dark circle at bottom of lcd toshiba 32" tv after water on front


If they used it as taget practice, then the dark semicircles at the bottom of screen is most likely a crack in the screen, the screen would need to be replaced. not worth the fix. the only other time i see circles on the screen is if the screen has failed

LCD TV has sound but no picture.


Shine a small bright light at the screen when on and see if you can see a faint picture in the dark screen. If you can then your backlighting is not functioning due to ccfl (inverter), power supply, or back light lamps.

Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.

All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp)

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

Faulty main or secondary board. Could also be faulty light sensor or iris. Not a user fixable problem unless you can get another f601 with a broken lens etc with good boards (to replace boards). Or a dead camera with good lens assembly (contains iris).
Very fiddly if you have the parts!!!!!!

Best advise is to sell it as faulty on ebay.

Is it possible that you've gone into M (manual) mode and the shutter speed is fast and a small aperture (large number) been selected? Or has the Exposure compensation been adjusted to be -2? Does it do the same thing in fully automatic mode? It certainly sounds like some setting has been adjusted incorrectly.
