Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
The Canon logo would not appear if you accidentally had pressed the DISP button on the back of your camera, so that is not he likely problem. Have you checked the photos that you have been taking? Are they also black? If so, this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

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.
