Try taking the camera in for a cleaning service. Having lived near the beach for sometime, believe me when I say, you would be amazed at where fine beach sand can get.

HI,

Its a CCD issue and you'll have to get it repaired and thats the only solution to fix it.

Check your settings dial. Make sure it is on AUTO. If it still produces white pix, then we can look further

All of a sudden, my MacBook says "cannot recognize format" of some of my Nikon Coolpix L18 pix and won't download my last 10 pix, nor any more that I take. It downloaded the previous 20 pix...


Sounds like the memory card in the camera has gone bad, or the camera has glitched. Try replacing the card. If it still does it, the cam has issues.

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.

Pictures no longer show up, only partyl horizontal lines


It is the CCD and it is a defect, no fix that is economically feasible unless you get a parts cam of Ebay and make one good one. Too bad Sony will not fess up to this model as they have with some other "newer" models like the F717 as it has really put a cloud over the post consumer digital camera market.

Oh my gosh this really works! Our screen went white, we hadn't dropped it or anything. The camera still worked fine but we just couldn't see what we were taking a picture of. We tried this solution and now we can see the picture through the screen perfectly. THANKS for posting this!
