    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?

    I have a similar problem. I haven't used my Canon powershot G9 for several days and it has been stored at normal temps, but when I turned it the screen is black except for a bunch of colorful streaks that seem to be randomly placed on the screen.

    I have a fujifilm camera and my problem is that about 1 quarter of the screen has thin white lines running across the left side from top to bottom, the camera still works great and this does not effect the pictures taken at all, I'd just like to have my lcd screen look like new once again without these lines. any suggestions for fixing this problem? any help would greatly appreciated, thanks.

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.

Streak on screech

Hello, If the streak is only on the screen and not on your photos it means the LCD is bad. If it is on your photos it is the CCD unit.
Best regards, Russell

White horizontal streaks

This sounds like some kind of lens flair. Make sure there are no bright light sources at about 45 degrees to the lens and it should correct this problem. If it is not that then there may be a problem with the CCD, the part that receives the exposure. Without knowing if this is a point and shoot or digital SLR this is the best answer I can give.

LCD screen and pictures go completly white

The camera is defective. But as you've only had the camera three months it still is under warranty. Canon is usually very responsive to these type of problems and will bend over backwards to make things right (probably the most responsive of the camera companies).

Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve this issue.

The back screen on my kodak C743 is malfunctioning

You are correct. The LCD screen is broken. This is super common with the C743. It is unprotected and unlike most LCD's, there is no hard plastic or glass screen over the LCD. My wife broke my son's 1st 743 when she left it in her bag. My son broke the second one by packing it in his duffle bag for a summer camp trip.

You can spend about $40 for a replacement that will probably break again, move on to another camera or use this as a "green mode only" point and shoot camera just like the old days where you don't know what you got until you get home. You can still hook it up to your TV set to change the settings and review your pics, but that's all you are left with.

Olympus Digital FE-170 LCD screen is shattered.

You may be able to buy a new screen for your camera and fit it yourself.
It takes a bit of know how but can be done if you take your time.
Check the internet to see if a replacement screen can be bought for your camera.
Check the price if you think it's not worth the hassle
buy a new camera and get a bigger purse - better still buy a camera bag.

Focusing problem

Your camera model was included in the general recall issued last year for the CCD factory defect. Here's a link to the announcement, you can also see a screenshot there for comparison - If for some reason sony tells you that it's not the same problem with your camera - it could still be a CCD defect, or the camera's main PCB. Try not to take a no for an answer and get it fixed through sony. Good luck
