Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera
Your lens is aperture is most likely stuck closed and the lens needs to be replaced. If you can see menus but can take only solid black photos then it is either the CCD or the aperture; most likely the aperture.
We have never been able to repair a stuck aperture, we always have to replace the lens on the camera. A CCD can be replaced, but you need a CCD to use and they are only sold as part of the entire lens assembly.
There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.
I know this because I OWN ONE that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')
Just let us know if we can help! Good luck from
