    i had the same problem... after an hour of pusing all different buttons I found out it was just the LCD +bright- wheel on the outer rim of the fold out viewfinder.

Most usually this problem indicates that the fpc cable to the lcd has failed. Sometimes it is only a loose board connector where this cable is secured. Any way you look at it, it will need to be serviced by a professional. Good luck, magic seadog

How to fix screen?

It sounds like you may need a new LCD screen or lens. I'm having similar problem with a white LCD screen on a Canon camcorder, but it still records video, I just can't see what's in the frame or access menus. Does yours still record video? If so, it is the LCD screen.

Is it white or dark?

If blank white, then the cable needs to be reset if dark then the lcd screen needs to be replaced. They are easy to change and run about 35 dollars for the whole assembly.

Here is a guide for that

KRZR blank screen

does the screen turn white or does it not turn on at all?If it turns white you can try a few things like take the battery out let it sit for 5 minutes then put it back and try it out,or you can open the top housing and find the flex cable connection unplug it plug it back in and try it,If the screen isnt comming on at all you need to check that the flex cable is connected if it is your lcd is defective and will need a new one,or your flex cable is bad,I dont know how you would know what one it was without having another phone to test them in but those are the only options for that scenario,well good luck

Lcd Screen

Sorry to hear that!
The only thing I would sugest is to pull the battery (and leave it out for 24 hours (or longer)) to try to reset the camera. But I would guess that the LCD stoped working and the white screen you see is the back lit screen mounted behind the LCD.
