Are you sure you didn't mess up a setting somewhere (left the ISO speed set too high for the fastest available shutter speed in bright light with the aperture wide open, white balance set incorrectly, or something similar to that)?

Does it do the same thing if you use the Green Auto position on your mode dial? If not (works OK using the Green Auto position), it's likely a settings issue. Try looking at ISO speed and WB settings first. There is also a menu choice somewhere to reset it back to factory defaults. If you dig around through the menus, you should see it somewhere (and if memory serves, there is more than one place to reset it, with one reset handling some settings, and another reset choice handling other settings).

Strange, sounds quite different from the "First Shot Black" phenomenon. Don't know what it could be. Did it get wet? Did you drop it?

I was hoping it was just a settings issue. But, to be frank, your symptoms sound like a bad CCD. A very overexposed image (often with lines running through it) is a common symptom with a defective sensor.
