Digital cameras focus with a lens attached to a circular, swiveling ring, controlled by small electromagnets. When dirt, dust, lint, or sand works its way into the lens assembly, the focusing ring can become jammed, not allowing the lens to swivel and focus. This, in turn, messes up other settings, which is why you're probably seeing a green haze. You can try to free up the lens by spraying compressed air into it, in hopes of dislodging the obstruction. Some people have reported banging the camera gently with the palm of the hand to free it up. Here is a web blog that talks about lens issues, and may help you:

If this doesn't help, the camera will have to be serviced unless you're really handy with this kind of tedious repair.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
