Question about Canon PowerShot TX1 Digital Camera
Ok. I admit... I should not have dropped it! Nothing looks damaged or cracked on the outside. The lens looks fine and the screen is ok. But when I power it on the "green light" goes on so I know it's "on". But the screen is white. It doesn't matter what I'm pointing the camera towards. The screen is white. I can't take any pictures nor take any video. I can't bring up the menu. I can't see the old pictures or videos on the camera. I turn the nob (play, camera, m & scn etc.) and nothing changes - only a white screen. I hear the motor trying to do something when I take a picture or take video. But nothing happens. The 10x optical zoom comes out in picture mode. Looks ok on the outside. But white on the screen. I can feel the zoom working... but can't see anything. But I feel the motor zooming in/out and when it gets to its max (in or out) it stops. Just like normal.
Do I dare open the camera up and try to fix the insides? I've never looked inside before so I don't know how it SHOULD look ... any suggestions? I'm willing to try anything... Thanks!!! -Katie

Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal). I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have. The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.

You need to power it with rechargable batteries. with the MAH being no less than 2000. I bought a charger which came with 2batteries for less than a tenner
