Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
Camera monitor does not display image in picture-taking mode. Camera will take pictures but will not capture any image. Monitor will display past pictures on memory card just fine. Essentially, it appears that the lens does not register any image to the camera.
This sounds like it might be 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:
