The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body. This will require disassembling the camera and LCD unit to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Time Machine would only help you in the future. Is your Mac set up with Time Machine? If so you should be able to get the deleted files that way. Click the Time Machine icon in the dock. Then go back to before you deleted the files, they are probably still available.
If you don't have a Time Machine backup yet, then your best option would probably be Data Recovery for Mac

after extensive searching I can't find a usb driver for windows 7 . Unfortunately the maker no longer supports later than windows 2000 for their driver. You might be able to run vmware and pretend to have an operating system that is an earlier version like windows 2000 or XP and run a driver in it for the pretend operating

I do not think this camera has firewire
but it may have a memory stick
maybe you could look at if you can get a memory stick reader that suits its memory stick.
