Can you as the first step remove the battery and then hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds then release.
Then put the battery back in, turn it on and tell me if the screen now displays correctly please.

Thanks
It is the actual screen that has failed Mrs E, we have confirmed this now.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the camera to have the screen replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
