Canon PowerShot TX1 - I dropped it & now the screen is white

\015 Ok. I admit... I should not have dropped it! Nothing looks damaged or cracked on the outside. The lens looks fine and the screen is ok. But when I power it on the "green light" goes on so I know it's "on". But the screen is white. It doesn't matter what I'm pointing the camera towards. The screen is white. I can't take any pictures nor take any video. I can't bring up the menu. I can't see the old pictures or videos on the camera. I turn the nob (play, camera, m & scn etc.) and nothing changes - only a white screen. I hear the motor trying to do something when I take a picture or take video. But nothing happens. The 10x optical zoom comes out in picture mode. Looks ok on the outside. But white on the screen. I can feel the zoom working... but can't see anything. But I feel the motor zooming in/out and when it gets to its max (in or out) it stops. Just like normal. Do I dare open the camera up and try to fix the insides? I've never looked inside before so I don't know how it SHOULD look ... any suggestions? I'm willing to try anything... Thanks!!! -Katie\015

Troubleshooting problems I have a canon powershot s60. I tried to take a picture earlier and the screen is completely white. The camera turns on, the battery is fully charged and there is nothing wrong with the digital card. THe camera wasn't dropped nor did it get wet. I keep trying to turn it off and on, but all I get is a white screen. No images. But there are 900 images on the camera card and i just used it this morning. Please help. Thanks, Shannon

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.

Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one. ... Canon Digital Cameras

My son dropped my Canon powershot SD450 while it was on, and the nose was out. I can still view photos, but the nose (or shutter... not sure what to call it) is stuck out and whenever I turn it on it beeps (the screen is black) and the screen displays "E18" in the bottom left corner. When turned on, right before the beep, the nose sounds like it is trying to extend, but almost like it is jammed. Is this fixable??

Definately fixable! The e18 error is just a lens error from when it was dropped. The site that specializes in the repairs on the Canon Powershots is: www.camerasandparts.com ... Canon Digital Cameras
