Screen has a white stripe down the left hand side

Displays, sometimes get some damage, because something hit the camera, or when the camera falls. If it is a white line, and you don't see it back in the pictures you took, try to live with it. Replacing a display, most of the time is more expensive then buying a new camera.

White screen

This is a problem with shutter not fast enough opening to take a picture indoor shows the horizontal lines. In sun light it is too slow and over expose the picture. Not worth the trouble to fix, buy another camera?

Stripe appeared when taking picutre with SAMSUNG L730

The shutter is jammed open - in picture mode it overexposes and gives the white stripes, in video the shutter stays open and the camera sets the expsoyre, so appears OK. New lens unit will be required.

White screen with black stripes, black spot

Sounds as if the camera would need to be sent to Olympus for service. You may want to call their Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.
