I have a canon PowerShot A410 camera.
I have had it for about a year.
One day, I went to take a picture and half the screen just went white. Now, almost all the screen is completely white. I can still take pictures, but I can't see what I'm taking a picture of!
Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Showing pictures with litte stripes is a normal condition. "Much whitter than usual" needs to change the settings. Did you control the posing tool?
-2 -1 0 +1 +2
May be posing is above 0.
Also what is ISO number. Change it to Auto or below 400.
After these controls give me some more information.
I'm sorry to tell you, but the PowerShot A410 model does not have a microphone to record voice. Of all the A400 models, only the A410 and A420 were made this way. For some unknown reason, Canon decided to not include micorphones wiith these two cameras, thus they can only record video, but no voice.
Your LCD is broken. The SD card would not be able to affect the LCD screen in any way. Normally I would say to get the LCD fixed but that would be a waste of money due to the fact that this model was released in 2004 and you would be better off getting a new camera.
For good quality and "user-friendliness" i would suggest the:
Canon SD1000, SD870, SD750 (Thin, sleek designs that come with a rechargable battery)
For more a more convenient price without loss of quality you might want to check out the Canon PowerShot A560. (A somewhat large and bulky camera that runs on regular AA batteries)
It is certainly the CCD failing.
Now you have had it over a year so warranty is out.
But there have been instances of certain CCD's being subject to a recall- and the camera being replaced.
Give Canon a support a go - you may get lucky.
