It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
Check your "white balance" (WB) setting.Try setting to "auto" and see if you get the same results shooting outdoors on a sunny day. If you do, the camera is in need of repair, if you do not, you need to buy a book on digital photography to supplement your manual.
unfortunatly, all I can offer you is an accurate testing for the settings, in order To verify that the camera cannot make a proper exposure. Go outdoors on a sunny day, put the camera on manual, aperture to f8 and shutter speed to 1/500 and ISO at 100. You should get a pretty good picture with proper exposure.
This is the "Sunny 16 rule", F16 at 1/125 ISO 100 which is EV15. Correct exposure for a clear sunny day, not in the shade.
if it fails, I would say there's some problem in the mechanizm, probobly one that requires a technician, or at least more knowladge than I can offer you.
