I have an Sanyo Xacti camera. It still records video, but the screen shows as flat white - it doesn't display the image. I don't know how serious this issue is, and I have no idea where to get it repaired...

Hi

 

If you take a recording (even though you can't see what you are recording) can you play it back through the TV? In other words is the camera still working in every other way apart from the screen?
