The P850 has two hidden screws under the eye view finder. You need to remove the rubber eye piece by removing the two screws and pressing in a downward direction. You will see the two holes for the screws.

Re: Lcd screen comes up in spots

Once your LCD has gone blotchy, that means its probably time to get a new one. Water has either leaked inside and ruined it or there is damage in the wiring. As for opening your camera, once all screws are out, it usually a matter of clips on the inside that snap the 2 halves of the camera together. I don't own this camera so I would suggest using a small flat head screwdriver and gently prying around trying to find the clips.

LCD screen and pictures go completly white

The camera is defective. But as you've only had the camera three months it still is under warranty. Canon is usually very responsive to these type of problems and will bend over backwards to make things right (probably the most responsive of the camera companies).

Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve this issue.

My samsung digimax 503 has a white screen!

Oh my gosh this really works! Our screen went white, we hadn't dropped it or anything. The camera still worked fine but we just couldn't see what we were taking a picture of. We tried this solution and now we can see the picture through the screen perfectly. THANKS for posting this!

Broken screen

Sounds like the LCD. Setting anything next to it, bumping it may crack the screen

Screen in toast!

That is definately a cracked lcd your describing! I doubt there is an easy solution but maybe... If you are able to get into the menu and disable the LCD that might help. However! The fact that the LCD is broken shouldn't keep the camera from running (though its remotely possible) If you can't shut it off or work without it the odds are you've got an expensive paperweight. At least thats what I gather based on your description.

Still have a white LCD Screen!

on the front of the camera, under the flash, two inches from the lens, hit this spot not hard just firm. Do it with the cam ON so you can see it work. Now if you want to fix it you will need to take it apart
