it seems that your camera was in contact with water or Coca-Cola. In order to repair it you should change light guide plate part number: 147913011 or LCD part number: 180572011 or both.

I am not sure about the specific brand. Open the case by removing screws (usually 5-6). The LCD screen is immediately accessible. Lift it carefully and trace the ribbon connector. Lift the small flap in the connector carefully and pull out the ribbon cable. Replace it in the reverse order.
Hi Karen_Earl I can't believe that this advice I found here todayon this site actually worked !! just passing it on. I got the evil white LCD screen today and then found this advice here: turned it off - I smacked the top of the camera afew times and when I turned it back on it worked fine!! who would have thought there was such an easy, instant and cheap solution to what I thought was an expensive or terminal problem! Thanks to Jada 1234 for posting this last year! !
Had the same issue with my wifes camera. Stripes going accross the screen. I figured that there might be a loose connection. I removed the batterys and three small screws (one is under the memory stick). Then I GENTLY removed the back, starting above the battery compartment. With the back exposed, I put the batterys back in and gently started playing with the screen connections. I got the screen working after playing with the lower, larger conection, on the bottom. Figured I had nothing to lose. Hope this helps you out.
