The camera was dropped and the thin, clear plastic piece (about 2 cm x 1.7 cm) that is used to look through was broken. Is the part available, I have disassembled the assembly around it or is only the entire assembly available.

Well the blurry is caused by poor focus. Try not to zoom too much. Better to get closer to the subject if possible. Study your manual and adjust your diopter which loosely means adjust the viewfinder in and out whilst looking at a subject without using any zoom until the picture is clear. Then take you'll find it easier to focus when you do actually zoom. Sometimes there's a small sliding piece of plastic sticking out of the side of the lens. Otherwise it's a matter of turning the eyepiece to get the clarity. That's why I said check the manual. That will explain which method to use.
The yellowish colour is unusual. I would say check you have the White balance switch set to auto but lack of white balance is not usually a yellow picture. But check the white balance switch anyway and make sure it's in auto mode.
Ordinary light bulbs or some street lighting can give a yellow caste so check you have the inside outside button switched to the correct position, depending on where you are at the time of shooting.
Did you buy the camera used or new. Often people who have faulty cameras will sell them off cheap and run. Leaving the owner with the problems.
So to sum up. get closer to your subject rather than use zoom if you can. If you use a lot of zoom either use a tripod or place the camera on a firm surface or even hold the camera whilst you stop yourself from moving by leaning against a wall or tree etc.
Next remeber where you are and switch the indoor/outdoor switch accordingly
It's where you find a view of what the light coming through the lens. Today's consumer camcorders place the viewfinder center-rear usually with a rubbery piece around the end as an eyepiece/cup. Many units shut off the image to the eyepiece if the flip-out LCD screen on the side is used.

I solved this problem Friday night and I have to give credit to a Blogger who suggested buying JB Weld to re-connect the center ring. I cannot find that blog again but if you are out there, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Here is what I did in more detail and I hope it helps you:
1. JB Weld is and epoxy sold at Home Depot. Go buy it for $5.00 2. Get a piece of tin foil and place the equivalent of 1 drop from each tube onto the foil. The product is activated by mixing the 2 drops together. I mixed this this with a wooden toothpick. 3. Put the outer ring in place on the camera and be sure to line it up correctly. Practice this several times if you have any doubts. Also practice dropping the center ring into place wtih the appropriate alignment before you apply the epoxy! If you do not have a steady hand find someone who does and let them do this for you. 4. After you mix the 2 drops together with the toothpick, apply just enough to the 4 anchoring post on the center piece to cover the tip of the post. This is a very small amount and had be questioning whether it would be enough. It was perfect. I did not apply any to the center post. Not sure if this was something that would be okay. 5. With the epoxy on the tips of the post, carefully drop the center ring in place (play/pause button should be straight up). Make sure that it is in place and put a heavy book on it for 24 hours. I used a Websters Dictionary. 6. Remove the book and it should work for you.
I fixed 2 cameras with same problem "Push Reset Switch"
Removed small foreign plastic object which was jamming mechanism without stripping.
In both cases a very tiny piece of one of the broken plastic 'catch' of the door was the problem.
Turn unit upside down and give it a good shake-up and it will drop off & problem solved.
Hope this helps.
Make sure it is completely dry. I have dried cameras by placing them under a gooseneck desk lamp (careful, not too close or you will melt the plastic). Open as many things on the camera as possible, and remove the battery. You shouldn't power it on until it is really dry. You might need to "bake" it under the lamp for a few days. If you see condensation on the lens, it isn't dry. Other than that, I'm not sure what else to do.
