    I have the exact same problem. I haven't used the camera in a few days and have just left it on my desk, but when I turned it on earlier, the screen is white except for a bunch of colorful streaks that seem to be randomly placed on the screen. Any solutions?

Usually if the LCD screen is partially damaged, it is just a matter of time before you need to relace it as the image will totally disappear and the screen will not work anymore. I'm not sure what appliance you have but generally for cellphones, the screen is replaced.

hi, usually you can correct this issue with only a few system checks, dark streaks can be caused by damaged pixels on the screen, in which case you need to replace the TV.
  • Inspect where the dark streaks are on the television. If the streaks occur at the same place on the top and bottom of the screen, they are due to the formatting of a movie or television show you are watching. This is normal. Also, if the streaks appear on the left and right of the screen, they are due to the show being filmed in full-screen instead of wide-screen. This also is normal.

  • Change the input setting so you are viewing the contents of a different device. If the dark streaks are gone, you know they are due to the device connected to it. However, if the dark streaks remains no matter what input the TV is connected to, the problem lies with the television.

  • Inspect the cable connection. Oftentimes when connecting a computer to an LCD TV, you can have strange dark streaks across the screen. Use a DVI-to-HDMI cable connection when plugging in your computer, then press the "Menu" button on your TV remote, select "Picture" and chose "Square Pixel." See whether the image adjusts and the dark streak goes away.
  • Contact the manufacturer of your LCD television if the dark streak remains. This streak can be caused by a defect in the television; if the TV is still under warranty, you can have it replaced.

    After approx 1-2mins the screen fades to black and white streaks and spots

    LCD is going bad and eventually it won't show any image. LCD is not able to regulate the voltage going into it so to much is going into the LCD and thats why the spots and streaks are showing up.

    My LCD Screen got hit and now the screen is mostly white with a few streaks of color, what do I do?

    There isn't much that can be done if the LCD layer was compromised. Luckly LCD screens today aren't that expensive. Probably the best thing is to shop for a new one after asking a shop how much it would cost to have yours fixed. (It might be fixable - a connector could have just simply come off in the bezel.) Good luck.
