have opened my camera. (it was useless anyway, right?) GUess what I found: in the lens-assembly there is a ribbon cable that controls the two solenoids, one of the shutter, one of the diafragm (or what it's called). This one is broken, the electric circuits are discontinued and so there is no control. It seems to be a design error since it broke exactly where the ribbon bends at 180 degrees almost with no place for a loop most of the focussing time. Can anyone find out where to find a NEW replacement ribbon cable?

I've got the same problem.
Happened just two months ago. I was outside taking pictures by a campfire, so I wonder if the smoke had something to do with it.
Movie mode is fine, but regular photos are either all white or with strange horizontal lines, not clear at all.
I'm going to open it up and reseat all the connections.
Anything else to try?
Anyone else have this problem or know what to do?

No this definitely sounds like symptoms of 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:
Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500
And even if it's determined not to be a CCD sensor problem, just tell them to send it back unrepaired. The A85 is a nice camera, but my goodness you can almost get a good new camera these days for $80.

If the menus and icons look normal, but images are distorted or discolored, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See Canon's service notice regarding this issue here. Canon will repair your camera at no cost regardless of warranty. Contact them at your regional Canon service agency.
