Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
The screen on my camera has gone white and nothing will display on the screen including the menu. Turning ON my camera (Canon PowerShot A540) like usual but the display went white (slowly fades to grey then back to white). Nothing seems to bring back a normal display (batteries, connector...). No special sound or smell. Video signal is good when connected to a TV via the audio/video connector. Everything else seems to be fine. Thanks!
Either your LCD is damaged or the cable connecting it to the rest of the camera is loose. I would suggest taking it to be repaired.

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
