No picture on back of camera 'screen'

When looking at the 'screen' on the back of the camera it's completely white - no picture - although you can see the image of what's in front of you when looking through the smaller view finder.

Hi Karen_Earl I can't believe that this advice I found here todayon this site actually worked !! just passing it on. I got the evil white LCD screen today and then found this advice here: turned it off - I smacked the top of the camera afew times and when I turned it back on it worked fine!! who would have thought there was such an easy, instant and cheap solution to what I thought was an expensive or terminal problem! Thanks to Jada 1234 for posting this last year! !

My screen is blank, completely white


Can you take pictures with it? Try to take a picture and download it to PC. If the picture looks fine, then your LCD has a problem. You need to replace your LCD.

Canon S2 IS - LCD screen is white after taking an outside picture


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.

Complete dark screen on quick cam


Try unplugging the USB cable and replugging it while the computer is on. I had the same problem you describe and also did a soft reboot of the computer which did not fix it. Cycling the power of the camera by unplugging it and plugging it back in fixed the picture.

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

if the resulting images are the same, you have damaged the camera settings/controllers. see how they look on your computer.
if only the display on the camera is damaged, you should consider asking for a flat rate repair. most makers offer a price for major and minor repairs, and never charge beyond that.
good luck
