You might have bumped the LCD screen, they break really easily. You can replace it yourself by ordering one on Ebay for about $25.00. A repair shop quoted me $125, but I would buy a new one in that case. It's not hard to change one, but you have to be careful, and make sure you discharge the flash capacitor. If you google the problem mentioning the make, model no., and add "changing LCD screen" you will find a lot of articles on it. Good luck, and maybe get a hard case for your next camera.
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.
Your ccd appears to be bad. Canon USA will repair this for free. Go here for details. They will send you 2 emails. One with the UPS label and another with info sheets to be sent with the defective camera http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819
Usually it's an lcd burn out where the screen needs replacement. Check the display button if it's just blank then press it to see if it comes on. As far as your friends white screen it not feasible to repair. A good thing to get on any digital equipment is an extended warranty. It does save you in the end when something goes wrong. The limited manufacture warranties are a joke. You should never rely on them.
The problem is in bad contacts on flat cable from the LCD. Cleaning the cable and the connector can solve the problem.
If you need more info please advice.
ps: this should be the long term solution.
I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
I have also run into this problem on my S5000 - the indicator moves to the extreme right on the exposure meter and the whole screen goes white. Any suggestions on how to overcome this problem will be greatly appreciated.
