The camera has just been working great, got it in December. But now when I turn it on, it just displays a white screen with a blue vertical line down the middle. I can hear the sound and playback, but i cannot see it. It has not been dropped or damaged, can anyone help me?

Re: White screen of death?
White Screen of Death huh!
Did you just invent that one, it is very apt I must remember to use it.
Any way it seems you are right - It could be anything from a firmware failure on the main board to a loose connector-
Nothing you can do your self internally.
Simple thing to try take the batteries out for an hour or so and making sure fully charged ones go back in.
Check the manual to see if there is a reset option.
Finally get onto the makers Website to check out if there is not an issue with this model and they are offering remedy's and or replacement.
As it is only 6 month old - You should be covered under warranty

Thus meaning what display on the LCD is exactly what "enters" through the lens. Is this a hairline or thick line appearing on the LCD and does the same happen on the photos/pictures when they are downloaded on a PC? If so "something" could have infiltrated into/onto the camera lens....
Buy one on Ebay for 20 Euro (inclusive of postage)
youtube.com has great videos of how to change a screen. You will need a tweezers and very small "philips" (cross/plus head) screwdriver. Make sure the screwdriver has magnets....so that you dont lose some screws....they are tiny.
If you buy a replacement "LCD Screen Display"on Ebay then usually all the tools you need are included. (I just checked).
I also have just replaced my screen....screen was damaged...LCD leaked and lots of vertical lines on a now only WHITE screen. Camera works fine now.
Check to see if the camera is still working. Try taking some pictures....and then put the SD-card into your computer to see if the pictures are being taken.
