What you have is a CCD issue. The CCD is the part of the camera that captures the images and stores it to the card. When the CCD goes bad it does some pretty funky things, including blurry, fuzzy or other weird things when they go bad.

Here is a link to an eBay auction with a CCD on it.

Flashing colours on screen

You have the review feature active and the flashing colors are most likely showing you the highlights and shadows that are too bright or too dark for a good photo. Look for the features in the menu to turn them off or try a factory default reset from the camera menu.

Black screen

Try downloading the photos to a computer. If this doesn't work there may be a problem with the flash chip. If so, try reformatting it - that worked for me when I had a couple of photo storage locations that constantly put up garbage displays and produced file error messages on downloading.
