Re: cannon powershot 85
This model has had problems with the switch block assembly. The shutter control is a two stage switch which gets stuck and attempts to fire the shutter when the camera is powered on. This is not a very serious problem and is easily resolved by a qualified technician. Replacing the switch block takes a bit of skill and should be done by a Canon service facility.
Good Luck my friend

Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.
its just a matter of batteries...some are not powerful enough to operate the camera ....Try to change them and buy some real good ones..like Duracell or Tatra...do not make any compromises when buy the batteries...get the best cause these kinda cameras really require powerful ones...or ...try to get a set of rechargeable ...
Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Sounds like an oversensitive autorotate sensor. Recommend holding the camera very steady when taking a picture. If it still acts up, recommend just turning the sensor off, as you can use just about any photo editing software to rotate your photos if desired.
Press the Menu button, find and select the "Setup" menu, go down the list to find the "Autorotate" selection to turn it on/off.
