Although there are several causes for a white LCD screen on digital camera models, one of the common causes could be solved without sending the device to an electronics or camera shop or service center. If you have encountered this issue, you may want to know how to fix a digital camera that has a white screen outside of picture taking, even if you have the best digital camera available. You should also check your exposure settings to make sure they are not too high, as this can affect image quality.
As with any device you are trying to fix, you will need to remove the power source from your camera. If you do not, you could end up electrocuting yourself. Additionally, you should remove the memory card. Finally, if you accidentally touch the circuit board, you may damage the camera further. In some cases, you may receive a shock from the residual energy, even after removing the battery. This method may not work for all models, and GadgetReview is not responsible for damage done.

Try to avoid touching the circuitry on the camera, as these parts can be damaged easily.
Why do my flash shots keep coming out dark?
Try moving closer. If the flash can’t reach the subject, the image will still be dark. Additionally, you should check your shutter speed and aperture settings. The shutter speed may be too fast or the aperture too low.
Will changing lenses mean I end up with dust on the camera sensor?
You may not end up with dust on your camera sensor when you change lenses if you do it correctly. Make sure to clean off the sensor before attaching the new lens.
Why is my camera starting without a display?
If you have a button to switch between the viewfinder and LCD display, try pressing the button. You may have forgotten to switch it from the viewfinder. If that doesn’t bring up the display, it could be an issue with the display or a connection problem. You should send it in for repair in that case.
