Re: screen is completly white

There is a micro connector inside that has electrical traces so small if they get misaligned in anyway you get the result you are seeing. You can try to fix it your self if your are mechanical inclined and very patient. Otherwise take it to a repair shop to be fixed Remove the batteries. Remove the small screws around the case and pry open the camera with the lens down, LCD up. Careful not to damage the alum bracket with holds the LCD, remove the two or three screws that hold it down. VERY carefully lift the LCD and you will see the connector attaching a thin membrane lead to the main PCB. That connector is fragile! It has two very small tabs on each end of it but in fact it is one long piece. Push each end outward from the connector and membrane lead comes loose. carefully wipe it clean and re-insert it. Re-align the membrane carefully. Push the locking mechanism back in place and reassemble the camera. Before putting the outer case on you can power up your camera to see it you fixed it. If you didn' goes to the repair shop. Don't do this if it is still under warentee.

Hi Karen_Earl I can't believe that this advice I found here todayon this site actually worked !! just passing it on. I got the evil white LCD screen today and then found this advice here: turned it off - I smacked the top of the camera afew times and when I turned it back on it worked fine!! who would have thought there was such an easy, instant and cheap solution to what I thought was an expensive or terminal problem! Thanks to Jada 1234 for posting this last year! !

LCD Screen remains black

Have you tried pushing the DISP button while taking pictures? It's on the right from the LCD.

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.

Canon S2 IS - LCD screen is white after taking an outside picture

the image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not, its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it.

White Screen

I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
