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.
I would imagine a part has broken in your camera. The best advice I can say is to get it professionally serviced and don't take it apart on your own. Many times with these products when you take them apart, more damage can be done and you'll often need parts anyway. If you go to this site: www.camerasandparts.com they just service the powershots exclusively and they are amazing for servicing these cameras. They don't charge much at all with there total service packages and your specific problem is on their site. It doesn't say what the cause is but to fix it and service the camera with shipping is $89. I can tell you from experience they are wonderful for service on these Canon cameras. Hopefully you can get it working nicely again since that is a really nice camera.
Try removing the card first and then trying to power up the camera. Cameras often fail to turn on/off when a card goes faulty. Next I would try pushing the playback button, it also acts as a power button but starts the camera in playback mode. If this works it could indicate a problem with the power switch circuit itself. If there is still no sign of life I would suspect a fuse to have blown. They are internally located and very small, you would need to have a service centre try replace it for you. Good Luck!
so the pics u take are also black and blank but power of camera is there u can see signs on lcd and all info but lcd is blank

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
Note that Canon should fix this for you free Worldwide. Sorry, but I don't understand French. But here's a starting point for your search for repair help in France: http://www.canon.fr/Support/index.asp
You can reinstall the software. But a really good solution is a card reader. They are cheap and reliable and don't need any software. When you plug it in, it will install itself, and then when you put your car in the reader its like an extra little hard drive in your computer. Just drage the files or folders where you want them on your computer. Less wear and tear on the camera is always good and then you don't need to plug in power or waste batteries if you don't have a dock.
