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:

Lens screen stuck open and no image on LCD view screen.


It is jamming, the only really fix is to have it repaired, that costs a lot and it is sometimes better to just replace the camera.

Cannon powershot A85. I turn on the camera and the screen just shows the menu or the settings. when I snap picture, it shows nothing. i cannot replay the pictures either. what could be wrong?


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.

Some pics have solid gray areas blocking part of the pic


Many digital cameras will display a thumbnail representation on the lcd and not the actual picture (for speed). So the problem is with the picture itself and if it is consistent in ALL of your pictures, it points to a problem with the imager. If the problem is not with all of your images, it could be a lighting issue. Try taking a picture of a solid white wall that is well lighted and see if the problem persists. If not, make sure your lighting is brighter.

Images have pink overlay


I had the same problem with my camera, suddenly the LCD and picture shows some pink image overlay bands on the top usually. When focusing the bands sometimes disappear. But they always shows on image as on the LCD. Canon seems to fix this problem as goodwill (guarantee is not valid anymore) so I sent my camera to service for this. Hope they accept this otherwise it is broken, LCD common problem. (Solution or same problem we will see)

Won't take pictures


An answer has been provided on both your previous posts. If that doesn't seem to apply for your camera, it probably can only be fixed by sending it in for service.

Cant take any pictures


the Shutter or some assicated components is shattered. This may be a repair situation at Nikon- but if you have had the camera for some time I suspect you will be buying another camera.
