pinkish photos in all modes

I had my camera away for a while, now when I take photos (in any mode) the photos are pinkish and underexposed.

Could it be because of the white balance, perhaps? Try resetting that to auto, and see if that helps. Posting some sample photos would help as well.

It could be white balance or even a colour profile if you shoot in jpeg. Also, how do they look on the little camera screen?
