Sounds like the Backlight is working but the LCD is not. The first thing I would try is opening up the camera(if this is the sort of thing you are comfortable doing) and pulling out and then pushing in the LCD ribbon.
See this image for where the ribbon for the lcd connects (at least on a SD600). http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_XmSxWfvnwsE/RlOsEjYjN5I/AAAAAAAAADs/0OuqTpB0GRc/s1600-h/plugin.jpg

-after charging the battery and still camera freeze it means your camera needs of service please call kodak toll free 1 800 235 6325., Gudluck!
I know that when you take the ribbon cable off the LCD screen, and power the camera up, the screen is just white. It's probably that cable that came lose, or is not properly connecting. A good cleaning on the cable (behind the LCD screen) would fix it.
hi have you tried removing the battery for couple of hours so it can reset any settings that need to be set back to default it only resets camera memory not settings you have changed but this can sometimes solve the problem your having.
Also when you switch camera on and then press zoom when the camera switches off does the lense go back inside the camera as normal or does it reamin out.
when you switch in on do all the other buttons work like can you take picture and can you access all the menu if you can then take it off auto if its on auto then see if this let you use zoom if not then the chances are their is a fault on the zoom button either jammed could be that the lense motor has come out of line with zoom button, is the display clear when you go to take picture without adjusting the zoom is it still possible to take pictures
