Took my camera to Six Flags and I think it got shook around too much. At first the lcd screen looked like a tye-died shirt and the lens wouldn't come out. I took it home and took out the battery for 2 days. When I put the battery back in, I pushed a few buttons and now the lens comes out but the lcd screen is just white. Everything else seems to funtion, as I took a few pictures and down-loaded them on my computer. But I want my lcd to to work. Am I out of luck??

If the pictures have lines, the fault is either with the processor board having a defect, or an open group of contacts, or the LCD imager itself. Lines are an indication of a loss of matrix addressing.
The service rep would replace the processor board or the imager. This will not be low cost to service. Check to see if the camera is under warranty.
I suggest if you buy a new camera, take an extended warranty.
The screen must be replaced. To do it yourself, the screen will cost around $40 from virtualvillage dot com. I just did one. It took about 15 minutes. The ribbon cable is held in by a flip up lock on the main board. Otherwise, it's just remove the screws around the case and pull the bottom edges outward first.

I'm unfamiliar with the F80 but on models like the f65 and f75 the viewfinder screen has an lcd overlay and when the battery is exhausted or removed the viewfinder goes dark and blurry.
Looking at a picture of the f80 it looks like it's just an update on my f75 so it strongly suggests that you just need to insert a fresh battery. The lcd does draw power from the battery even with the camera turned off.
I hope that you found my answer useful, once you've tried another battery to confirm what I've suggested I'd appreciate it if you return the favour by rating my answer.
Hmmm, I'm thinkin' if there's no memory card in camera, there are NO memories, aka formerly known as photos.
Unless there is some sort of an internal memory, but me thinks not.
As for error message, might be because....card fell out while an image was being captured.
