I'm sorry to say this, but cameras die. It could just be that your camera was well loved, and has been affected by everyday wear, or it is suffering from water or other damage. In any case, you would have to replace the screen, which would be more hassle than it's worth. If you remember any sort of water damage, though, than you try try taking all memory cards and batteries from the camera, then putting it in a bowl of dry rice for about 2 weeks. I had an iPod touch 3rd Gen that suffered SERIOUS water damage and this perked it up.
I'm sorry to say their isn't an immediate fix, but this can hopefully help a little.

I have a Gateway m-series laptop computer that has worked fine until today with I was working on it and it suddenly when white screen and i can only operate it in safe mode


This may be virus problem. Or some software you have installed that altered the display driver. Do the following.
1. In safe mode run a virus check.
2. Try to recall what software you installed last. Un-install it in safe mode.
3. If you don't remember exactly the remove latest 3-4 software that you have recently installed.

You should be fine.

Check whether there is anything obstructing the range sensor just above the rear LCD. The sensor could be thinking that your face is near, thus turning off the display. Also, you should be able to use the Disp button even in auto display mode, which might make the display not show anything by default.

The problem is the iris is stuck.

The solution is:
1. Move the camera to TV mode(the wheel with AUTO,M,TV,...)
2. Set the exposure time to 15 seconds(15")
3. Take a picture.
4. After 7 seconds remove the batteries and put them back on.
5. Repeat the procedure until it works.

Vertical lines obscuring image


The matrix is dead. Probably because of an intensive light got into the lense while the camera was in night mode. It's dead. Nothing can be done.

Rebel 2000 went retarded


I got a Rebel 2000 off ebay, and it had the same problem. The Shutter wouldn't open, it showed dead batteries, and the mirror hung until I pressed the shutter button or changed modes.
After a good deal of surfing, I found that the most likely reason was a sticky/oily shutter
(http://photonotes.org/articles/oily-shutter/).
Since I didn't have much $$$ invested in the camera, I tried cleaning the shutter curtain with Qtips and alcohol. After a little cleaning, the shutter started to move. After a lot of cleaning, the shutter moves freely. I ran a roll of film through it, and it seems to be working just fine now.

Blank screen


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say.
