All white screen...

I went to test this top mount on my helmet .. the cam was all set with the proper prompts in the screen. I turned it on ..and headed out. I usually just let it run 'till the battery is done ..about 75min. I came back to the shop and all I get is beeps, verbal choice of camera or playback mode ...but a totally White screen. I tried Menu ..and can get it to beep ..but I can't see anything on the screen? My SD card is also not visible to my Mac in a card reader?! Have you seen anything like this? ...and I RTFM, it said nothing about this specific condition. (run it for a year without errors..) Thanks.

.......interesting: I was able to get access to the files on the card via a cable from the camera to my iMac. (usually, I simply plug the SD card into a reader to save the battery) It recorded fine and appears to work. I have to pretend to be blind; I have used it often enough that muscle memory comes into play. But, I'm willing to bet my screen, or it's driver, is toast.
