White screen seems normal at 15 sec in M.

Long time since I had a G7 but I certainly know that setting 15 sec in the MANUAL mode in bright surroundings leeds to such a massive overexposure that your screen is pure white. Try decreasing the time drastically and you should see the colour returning. Should also be alright on Tv or P or Av. Perhaps there was some setting for decoupling the screen image from the set exposure that was activated before the repair.

Can't really say anything about the flash, too long since my G7. But that shouldn't have been changed by any lens/sensor repair.

Sounds like the repair people reset to the default settings and some things now seem different to you. You would have to restudy the menues to return things to how they were.
