    This camera is supposed to be shock-proof up to 6ft but I accidentally dropped it from less than 1ft into grass, and the screen is only white. It does still take pictures, because I can transfer them to my computer still. What can I do to get the screen to work again? Is there somewhere I can send it (I don't have the warranty anymore)

    I have the same problem. Today a received a call from Olympus  Tech Store, pricing US$500 to fix it. I just leave it away. The new model 850SW is US$195. The problem now is that I lost confidence. May be I should  try another brand.

When turn on power on olympus stylus 710, the screen comes blank

Is it a WHITE screen? I had this problem with a 710 also.
It turns out that everyhting in the camera will still be perfect...except one thing---One or more of the conducting filaments in the ribbon connector (that bridges the electronics in the front and rear halves) will be found to have been broken, perhaps almost invisibly, at the fold in the ribbon.
At this point you own a "parts camera", and might get a few bucks for it on ebay. Sorry.

Blank screen

Did you accidentally hit the lower left "Display" button on the back of your camera? It manually turns the screen on or off to save batteries. Turn the camera on and press it once to check.

Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
