    I'm having the same problem. When I turn on the camera, the LCD screen remains white. It doesn't appear to be cracked.. It's the backlight that remains lit, but no screen.

    Screen suddenly went white- can still see menu's etc but cannot take photos or videos (though sound on video mode still works) screen remains white. Taken memory card/battery out- tried transferring the white pictures onto my computer to see if they had taken but they came out white too.
    Tried messing about with the functions but nothings happening- it's just all white!!

    Camera reviews pictures and live video on memory card without problem, but in picture taking mode screen turns white when you turn on camera, have tried removing and replacing batteries - installed new fully charged batteries, removed and replaced memory card, have left in off position on dock station, tried batteries in similar model camera to ensure they are fully charged - also a Kodak-. --CW330 model. Have tried adjusting exposure compensation, white balance and tried adjusting ISO speed - still the screen remains white when powered on - camera worked perfectly until recently - has not been subjected to heat/cold water or other harmful environments, camera is less then 1 year old. Please advise! I use this camera for work as well as pleasure and need a solution quick! Thanks!

What happened is the lcd ribbon has loosed up or came off altogether. Try this;turn camera on,squeeze case between your fingers,where sony logo is,if ribbon is just loose the lcd should come back on. If this doesn't work,take it to a local camera shop and have them fix it,it's a very simple fix.

This is for people who have given up and about to throw their camera in the bi: I have a Casio Exilim ex-z33 and the screen went white a few days ago. I wasn't too peeved about this as its a cheap little camera, but I would have preferred it working. I looked on the net for answers and the most logical ones told me that the LCD cable has come loose and that it just needed a little nudge to get it back in place.. i tried applying pressure to the body, even small taps on front of the unit. Nothing worked and I was about to throw it in the bin, when i though i may as well well put more force into it and hit it hard against a table. Imagine my face when i turned it on and it was working! Now, I cant guarantee that this 'technical' procedure will work for all, but if you have nothing to loose then give it a go!

Posted on Sep 23, 2009

Can't be the LCD connections or you wouldn't be able to see the menu etc.

Hello, Go to Kodak website under support and downloads and find the firmware download for your CD82 camera and see if that corrects the problem.

Display screen went white..


your screen is not connected inside your camera it is easy to reconnect as there is a cellophane tab carrying copper connectors that are held in with a plastic clip which has probably unclipped itselfyou need a watch makers screwdriver (small possidriver a eye glass and a pair of small strong tweezers) work on a clean table so if you drop the small screws they can be easily found 6small screws in allI replaced my own screenthat I got fromASAHI PHOTO LTD MDDX on ebaycost was £39 .95 and a genuine replacement screen a doddle to do as it requires no soldering just a bit fiddly hope this helps

White Screen


I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
