Help Malfunctioning Camera

I was loving the camera on my Evo until a few weeks ago when it started having problems. When I open the main camera the image is extremely grainy and colors are distorted (I would post a photo but the forum won't let me). The secondary camera (the backwards-facing one) still works fine. I thoroughly cleaned the lens and there isn't anything visibly wrong with it; I also tried force stopping and then restarting the camera app, and also cleared the app data, but that didn't help. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong?
