    So I got into my 85D today after a 2 hour meeting. The dashboard screen was completely black.
    So I did a reset (holding down both thumb wheels). After the reset the dash screen was bright white. I could see the normal on-screen items "behind" the white screen. Kind of like the screen was super bright but the displayed items are still there- just hard to see them.

    After a minute or 2 the white slowly starts to fade away. After about 10 minutes the screen looks normal again.

    Anyone ever have this issue before?

    Sounds like it might be a display issue. I'd call Tech Support and see if they can verify. If anything, call your local SC and take it in to have them look at it.

    Once, with an earlier version of the software. I can't remember how long ago, but at least a couple of months back and I've never seen it again since. I think I saw a mention of it in one other thread, but that's all I can recall.

    I don't remember why I'd had to reboot in the first place, but I don't think it was for having a blank display.

    ETA: Found the other thread: Instrument Planel - Yellow Haze/reduced resolution
