Canon PowerShot A80 - no display through the lens

\015 My Canon PowerShot A80 worked flawlessly for years, including last Friday. Last Saturday it didn't. Not dropped or any event. Picture on CF card displays. No display through the lens. Icons display. Lens opens and retracts normally. Always wants to shoot at 1/60 with flash regardless of conditions. Flash goes off, no image records. Any ideas?\015
