If it looks like a crack, it is a crack. You may not feel it because the internal screen is protected by an outer screen. Pressure of some type is usually the cause of cracked screens. This is an expensive repair.

I have a white upright line on the right side of the screen at all times can yiou help please

This is caused when the screen has hit something slightly or a bit hard. When the hit occurs, it usually causes some kind of crack or dispersion of white or other colored line or patching on the display side of the screen. This is because the inner ink that displays objects have been partially shattered.
The only way to fix this problem is for you to send it to a specified technician or to the company as there is a very high possibility a new screen would have to be put to replace the former.
Hope this solution was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya

Shattered lens? not sure, but looks like it

Going to have to replace the camera. You can also try to turn it in to Kodak for repair but your easier route is to replace the camera.

When camera turns on, i see white screen with crack

the crack that you see is an internal crack. this may solve your problem. turn camera off, take out battery and memory card then after 10 secs replace battery with a fully charged one. do not insert memory card. turn cam on and check if you still have the internal crack, if it is not resolved, send cam in for repair

Sounds like its broken. the black ink stuff could mean the screen is cracked and it has bled internally. I had the same problem (screen bleeding). the not-turning-on part could be because ur not using full batteries, the batteries are not in the right way, or the screen crack is shorting something inside and not allowing the device to come on. get it replaced. when you turn it on press the menu/ok button is there any noise, tune. this happens to me to show its entered the menu section. if you are getting this sound, then its turning on but the screen is cracked. if not then you have a dead camera or change the battery positions or use new batteries.

LCD Screen "cracked"

I have the same problem right now. It was fine last night, and when I woke up it was cracked, now it looks like a black sunset. I've only had it for 5 months and I need to get it fixed, but I have no idea where to take it. I bought it from best buy, but I didn't buy the warranty or anything, will they still fix it? I'll pay.
