    I have exactly the same problem!

    I was out hillwalking and taking shots along the way, and then for no apparent reason, when I switched off, it wouldn't switch on again. I tried changing the batteries but that didn't work. Using the Canon website is no use either, as they just refer you to one of their service agents.

    Anybody else having this problem????

I have the same problem too. I turned it off and it will not turn on again. Bummer too I was taking it camping this weekend and went to check it to make sure the batteries were good and it is dead. The web site said to clean the battery contacts but mine are clean.

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.
