Contact a Nikon certified service centre and ask what the replacement of the screen cost. Then look what a new camera costs and decide.
If you still can make pictures, but you can't see the results, go on shooting and try to live wit the broken screen. Take care from a broken screen sometimes dangerous fluids can leak out. Don't touch the chemicals, wipe them off with a paper towel.
On almost all cameras, yes. The cost will vary from brand to brand and model to model. For older cameras the biggest difficulty will be in finding a replacement. For newer cameras the cost may be more than the cost of replacing the entire camera.
If you want to do the replacement yourself, take a look here to see if the replacement part is available.
Most likely the LCD Screen is broken, that's one of the ways it looks when it's been broken. It will need to be replaced. Sometimes you can find them on the net, and sometimes you can find an "as is" camera on ebay for a few bucks, and salvage it's screen. There are many articles and even videos about how to change the screen on the net. Get an estimate before you get it repaired. The cost of repair can exceed the replacement cost of a new camera. Good luck, hope this helps!
You may be able to fix it yourself if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have at least some experience with electronics.
Otherwise, the cost of professional repair may be close to or beyond the value of the camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to attempt replacing the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures.
Unfortunately I would be pretty sure that the warranty wouldnt cover the cost of your screen as it would come under misuse... ie: you broke it dropped it caught it damaged it ?. and not covered under electronic breakdown or fair wear and tear , however dont despair a replacement screen is not that much and fitting it is relatively simple with the right tools and a steady hand and good eyesight ..Cost of a replacement is available on the Olympus website .. however if the screen just stopped working and you didn't break it then yes it would be covered under warranty ..
