that happened to me as well. I had it in my back pocket and when I stood up, the screen looked shattered. it has also happened with my ipod and phone. the screen doesn't look broken, but it needs to be replaced.
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.
There's a lcd replacement linked there for an S40, it might be similar to your camera. If your camera's screen has not been shattered, recommend first trying to jiggle or reseat the screens ribbon cable to see if a bad connection might be the problem.
The LCD itself may not have problems. If it ain't broken it most probably doesn't have a problem. Most likely the problems you have are given by a faulty connector between the LCD and the camera's mainboard. You should take the camera to a service center to have it checked. Tell them to make an estimate over the repair costs before they actually do something. In this way you will know what prices can you espect over the repair. I'll give about 60% chances that this is a minor defect involving that connector. In this case they will just need to reconnect it back firmly.
