Question about Cameras
The LCD display is most likely just too dim / the back light is set on too low or it has generally an dimmer display back light.
Look around the camera's settings and look for the LCD back light adjustment, try to adjust it, and when taking pictures, try to stand in a shadow so that you could at least make something out from the camera.
I suppose there are some hoods available that you could put on top of the back of the camera / on the LCD display so the sunlight wouldn't get to it as much.
if even after all those things the back light is still way too dark I would suggest to take the camera to a local dealer and have it checked and compare it to another model of the same brand or to another same camera if they happen to have one in the shop.
even if the camera is on warranty I don't think this goes under warranty, as I don't think its actually a problem that would require repair. Unless the back light goes out completely, then the company should replace it / repair it free, if its under the warranty.
you could even possibly think about a hood for the camera, do you remember those really old cameras? and the person taking the picture behind the camera had this black robe or something to that direction on that covered the back of the camera and he / she had to get under the robe to take the picture. maybe you could try something like that.
Just a suggestion, let me know how that goes.

It is normal as camera LCD can not show image in direct sunlight because sunlight is far brighter then LCD Back Light.

The display being white can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the display is not seen, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.
However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the phone aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
