This morning, my iphone 4 screen colours were wrong, and kind of looked like a negative or x-ray image. 

I reset the iphone to it's factory settings and this fixed the problem.

However, I'm wondering, is there a setting in the OS  that causes this?    Or, is it more likely a hardware defect?  

While the problem is fixed for now, I'm wondering if it will reoccur.

Sounds like you may have accidentally enabled the functionality for visually impaired folk.

Indeed. You can set the home button triple click action to enable this mode, great for friends with iPhones, watch them freak out.

Cue: evil laugh.

That's a horrible thing to do to someone.
