Sony Handycam DCR-SR-40 display gets White screen only

After my Sony Handycam model DCR-SR40 was run through Airport security it no longers works. The only thing it does is show a white screen display on its touch screen. I can hear the shutter clicking when I'm in photo cam mode.
Any ideas on whats wrong. Is it fixable, estimate cost etc.

SOURCE: ImageMixer software "could not find Handycam." DCR-SR40

After camera is on dock and usb is plugged in, turn on the camera. You can open the door to see the status of the connection as an option. This should do it. If the camera is off, nothing will happen when you run the imagemixer software
