I learned how to destroy a CCD

I was going to take a pic of my toddler who had a malfunctioning Sony P&S. He was pretty close and pressed the shutter on his camera and the flash triggered at full power at close range. From that point on the LCD shows pure white when in camera mode and any pics taken with it are pure white.

FujiFilm FS31 FD

I've tried resetting it, removing the batteries over night -- nothing works. The LCD will display the menu, icons and pictures taken before the incident. It's hosed.
