SC 6 Filter Gallery, been using the half tone pattern filter with no problem then suddenly it just started turning the image all white. A few other random filters in the gallery are doing the same thing but others are working fine.Any ideas?

Many of the Filter Gallery filters use the foreground and background colors for their effect.
And you probably have both colors set to white.

That still doesn't answer why suddenly all filters do nothing at all. I mean look at this. What is going on?

It looks like you have a whole stack of filters applied in your screen shot. One of them is probably being applied with white foreground and white background.
