Question about Pentax Cameras
You haven't stated which model you have, but on Pentax models "green mode" is an auto-everything mode. You just point the camera, adjust the zoom and the camera chooses everything else. As a result it does not allow access to almost all other functions.
Not all functions are available in all modes: you'll find similar restrictions when using any of the scene modes which your camera is likely to have, but for most of them you'll have fewer restrictions. You get maximum control in manual mode, and a very slightly less in aperture priority mode (the choose the aperture, the camera selects the correct matching shutter speed) and also in shutter priority mode (you choose the shutter speed, the camera selects the correct aperture). Program mode chooses the aperture and shutter speed for you, but allows you to retain full control of everything else and also to adjust the balance between the pre-selected shutter and aperture settings whilst maintaining the same exposure level. These modes are labelled P,A, S, M on those camera function dials which support these modes, your may or may not have them.
I hope that my speedy free reply has been of assistance to you; if so please let me know by taking a moment to rate my answer. If not, please add a comment instead and state your exact camera model and I shall be happy to assist you further.

Tips for a great answer:
3 choices are available. Take it in for service(expensive), try to clean waste ink pad yourself(messy) or try this reset yourself. It works on many different models and may be your answer.
I have been running my printer for approximately 2 years since resetting mine without a problem.
Waste ink full reset
These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma mp470:
1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.
4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)
5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)
6) Power off then back on and test.
