First, try a new SD card. Sometimes, and I emphasize the sometimes, the card can cause this. But I have Coverts where this happened and one cam still does it to this day, and it pretty much a "garbage" cam that I use in areas where I don't really need to bank on the pic. If I get a clear clean one, great. If not, oh well. They were outside the warranty period, though, so it is what it is.

The pink and green pics are not related to the filter being stuck. If it were, the pics would pink/purple. The green tells me the cam's got some internal problems, not mechanical. Typically in the CMOS sensor.

Moisture in the camera compartment can cause this also. I had one leak and it produced pink pictures.
