HTC EVO Camera pictures are a weird transparent puplish/pinkish color


Android Question

Used my camera during a party and it worked fine for the first par. Then suddenly, something seemed to have stopped it from working properly. With both the camera and video recorder the display and any photos/video I take has only transparent purple/pinkish color, in stead of the true colors of the objects being photographed. The secondary camera, however, appears to be working normally. This happened another time and the camera stayed like that for a weeks or so, then as I was ready to take it to be repaired it abruptly began taking normal photos/videos again. I am thinking that some setting must have been changed to cause this, but have tried adjusting the white balance and quality, with no luck. I have also tried switching back and forth between main and secondary cameras, and resetting defaults. None of these has solved the problem. Has anyone had a similar problem and, if so, is there any known fix for it?
