Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
Last night my LCD suddenly went dark, and stays that way in record and play modes, regardless of other settings, EXCEPT if I turn the mode dial to "stitch" mode recording. Then the screen suddenly lights up, until I change to any other mode.
So, it looks like the LCD hardware is capable of display, what could be causing it to stay off all the time? I tried cycling through the Disp button, and pushing every other button on the camera, but nothing helps.
Thanks for any help!!
I have the exact same problem for my Canon A85. I happen about two weeks ago. I tried Dieter's method to connect the A/V output to my TV. The image were displayed on TV.
What kind contact spay you used? I would like to try.

I have exactly the same problem as Shimoni and Antonio with my 4 years old A85.
But sorry, its not a problem of the CCD, cause we all get a clear actual picture on the LCD but just in stitch mode! In any other shooting or playback mode the LCD is dark. So the sensor must be working well and Canon Germany doesnt repair for free. Our failure is different and we have to pay much more than the camera is worth ;-((
