Your screen is not connected inside your camera it is easy to reconnect as there is a cellophane tab carrying copper connectors that are held in with a plastic clip which has probably unclipped itselfyou need a watch makers screwdriver (small possidriver a eye glass and a pair of small strong tweezers) work on a clean table so if you drop the small screws they can be easily found 6small screws in allI replaced my own screenthat I got fromASAHI PHOTO LTD MDDX on ebaycost was £39 .95 and a genuine replacement screen a doddle to do as it requires no soldering just a bit fiddly hope this helps

If the screen becomes damaged, it can turn all white. The white is the backlight, and if the screen is dead, you will see all white. This is not the ONLY cause, but it is one of the most common. If you are vary handy, and good with very small parts, then you can buy a screen on ebay for about $20-25 and fix it yourself.

I fix ALL Pentax Optio A10,A20,A30,A40 models. My price is between $40 and $100 for almost any problem. I will replace your screen for $40, if that is the problem.

I also buy all the Pentax models listed above, in ANY condition.

Nokia display become white

the crystal diode behind the lcd screen has been damaged causing this "white screen".

best chances are to replace the whole lcd screen to get the display in working order again.

Screen does not display

I had the same problem. more than likely your connector cable between the camera and the display has become brittle over time and is beginning to break. as you open the screen the small wires inside the cable are separating. mine went from 30 deg view to 90 deg no display as yours is now, then 30 deg fuzzy display (cant make out the picture like a VHS when it needs heads cleaned) then the cable gave in and snapped. all the way through. Simply not a lasting camera. I got quotes and it was about $200 to fix. for that price these days u will pick up a better camera anyway. Good luck

Screen has gone white

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.
