OK, firstly you will need to determine weather the camera itself is still taking photos. If so, then the problem is most likely a an internally cracked LCD. If the lens extends once you turn on the camera, we know the lens still works. If you can see any power indication, we know that the circuit is still working, hence the only fault can be with the screen.
So, follow the steps above to determine if the other components is still working, if it is, you will be able to replace the LCD screen at your nearest camera repair store for less than $40 labour included.
Please feel free to let me know if you need any further assistance.
You cannot repair the broken LCD screen; the white you are seeing is the backlight for it.
LCDs have extremely thin gold deposits along one edge that is contacted by a silicone rubber strip that has fine wires molded into it vertically and one edge is pressed against the LCD panel for contact.
It is a fussy arrangement when new and it sure doesn't get any better when dropped.
I wouldn't delay too long looking for parts or repair; Polaroid filed for bankruptcy last week although I doubt if the parent had anything to do with the manufacture of your camera; as with many companies with limited manufacturing means, the camera was surely built by others.
No easy fix. Pressure or impact is the usual cause of a cracked LCD. Try not to get the black stuff on anything....it's pretty toxic! The screen needs to be replaced (assuming there's no other, internal damage). They are usually in the range of $75 US.
Your lcd is broken. If you can find a parts camera on ebay, you can follow the disassembly guide I am providing the link for, and replace the screen.
I have followed the guide and completely disassembled mine, so I can tell you the guide is so good even a screwup like me can accomplish it.
Shoot, I'd consider buying your camera for parts if you just want to be rid of it.
