Take a picture with the camera and download it. If the pictures also shows up white then this probably is a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

I've got the same problem.
Happened just two months ago. I was outside taking pictures by a campfire, so I wonder if the smoke had something to do with it.
Movie mode is fine, but regular photos are either all white or with strange horizontal lines, not clear at all.
I'm going to open it up and reseat all the connections.
Anything else to try?
Anyone else have this problem or know what to do?

Take out the batteries. Take a hair dryer and try blowing the hot air along all sides of the camera. If your camera has a plastic body, make sure not to stay in one area to avoid discoloring the plastic.
Blow the air in for a good 5 minutes. This trick has worked a few times on cameras and cell phones.
If it still doesn't work, more than likely you have shorted out the circuit and it will need to be disassembled.

SOURCE: its shutter is not opening
A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
