Re: Problems!!!!!!!!!! Help..

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.

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.
