If you can see images in play mode, previously taken pics, then check to see if iris is opening and closing, could be seized vanes on iris motor. If nothing is ever visible on LCD or the eyepiece, this is what the manual has to say- remove batteries, reinsert them after a minute. If it persists press the reset button with a fine tip, its located inside the memory stick/battery cover. all your settings will be cleared. Use your warranty if valid Good luck

White Screen. When I turn my camera on, it has power but, the display is white and you cannot see anything through the view finder.

hi,
did you check the picture through the view finder ? if it is clear, then there may be snag in the monitor, normally the connecting cable to the motherboard become break, if so should replace it.
if the picture is visible when you turn the monitor to either side, then you can confirm the fault of the cable.

PENTAX K200D Manual

I have the same camera and to my knowledge, a 'live' view with the LCD screen is not a feature with this camera. All pictures are taken through the eyepiece and then reviewed on the LCD screen. BC

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo

The feature you are referring to is called "Live View mode".

This is NOT available on the Nikon D80, and was only introduced on the D90, which is available now.

Live View mode allows you to use the LCD screen as your view finder instead of using the eyepiece, but unfortunately, this feature is not available in your model.

LCD not working

There's a good possibilty that your mode switch is broken. Same thing happened to my Z6. I was able to source replacement switches, and can replace them.

Can't get image in viewfinder

Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations.
