Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A60 Digital Camera ?

Canon powershot a60 white lcd/no photo

\015 The lcd display will turn on and off but when it is on it will only display an entirely white screen with no variation. you can take a photo; however, when you go to view it is completely black. the camera was in working order, and besides a few people who dont know a thing about cameras trying to take a picture with it, there is no apparent damage. i reset the default settings and browsed through the users manual but could find no information that would provide a solution. all functions appear to be in working order, although it is impossible to tell for sure. the batteries were recently changed, but I struggle to take this as the problem. please help....many thanks\015
