I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

Black LCD Canon A60 Cute camera, many nice features. Installed a Lexar 256mb CF. Worked well until just past the warranty period. Now nada, just a black screen, or scrambled LCD. If you squeeze the shutter, wysiwyg--a black photo. Contacted Canon and essentially they offered me an "upgrade" to their A70 for $150 plus $10 for shipping. And a 3 month warranty. Any advice or do I have an expensive paperweight?
