No expert advice is needed here
VideoKing has given you the answer in the second part of his reply. Psychedelic colors are (almost) always due to a problem with the Lens module connection cable. So, either the flat ribbon cable has become misaligned in the connector or the cable has become cracked. I suggest you carefully open the ribbon connector, remove the ribbon cable, carefully re-insert the ribbon cable and close the connector. Before touching anything you should, of course, first remove the battery.
Instructions on how to open the connector are given in the developers manual or Rubis made a short video here. If you don't have a suitable plastic tool use a non-metalic tool like a wooden toothpick.
Important: Some cameras come with a different connector (see picture below). To open the latch, very carefully flip the grey bar at the rear upwards.

If this doesn't solve your problem then the ribbon cable has become cracked and you'll need to buy a replacement lens module from one of the recommended sellers here.
