White LCD Screen on Sony Handycam DCR-HC21

Hi. Whenever I turn on my camera, the screen just goes blank and won't do anything. I've checked all the buttons, or at least I think I have. Any possible solutions would be a great help. Thanks.

LCD screen stopped working

sounds like the LCD screen viewfinder may have been twisted or accidentally catched or got hooked or snagged on on something at one stage and pulled something, if the screen went yellow it means the three wires going to it are possibly broken or the small white clip was slowly coming undone inside the Viewfinder for the red and green to no longer work to complete the image also indicates why the buttons on the viewfinder are not responding, try twisting the viewfinder very lightly whilst on, but most likely the small white clip holding the wires has come off at the elbow inside the camera
