When I turn on the camera I get a white screen on hte monitor and nothing in the viewfinder. This occurs in the still, record and playback modes.

It sounds video processor is not getting voltage from sub power supply section on main board of camcorder that is why you do not get any video output in lcd or viewfinder in any mode.
I'm Sony camcorder tech and can help you if you are handy with electronics stuff repair and can take apart camcorder easily with proper tools.
In my opinion, there would be fuse blow out that provides volts to video signal section. Let me know exact model number of camcorder to proceed and if you feel uncomfortable working on camcorder then local camera repair shop is an option to get it fixed.
Hope these info will help you.

Viewfinder screen and viewfinder are black and lens is off

Make sure the selector switch is turned to record (the center position) and camcorder is turned on. Make sure the viewfinder is pulled out fully when you look in it. If that doesn't work try resetting the camcorder. Open the LCD and there is a small hole near the play button, gently push a paper clip in the hole all the way and press the power on button.
