Question about Cameras
You haven't stated a make or model so it's impossible to give you a specific answer, but what you have described is typical of a failed ccd imaging unit.
The confirmation is that if you can display pictures taken before the fault occurred just fine then it's definitely the ccd. If all pictures are affected then it's the LCD display or the display driver circuitry.
Assuming it's the ccd then fixing it requires a new ccd unit to be fitted: depending upon the age, make and model of your camera this may be a free warranty repair, a free repair under a product recall scheme, or an expensive and uneconomic repair which effectively consigns your camera to the scrapheap. As you didn't mention the make and model it's impossible to state which option applies to your camera, but in every case it's definitely a professional repair only.
Please take a moment to rate my answer or if you have further questions regarding my reply post a follow-up comment instead and I will respond when I'm next online (I'm in London, England, so may also be in a different time zone to you).
