Help: Bad Panasonic TS2 Camera??

I am leaving in 3 weeks for my honeymoon. I just purchased the Panasonic TS2 for snorkeling and general picture taking. Unless there is a setting I am missing, I believe the camera is bad but wanted to get some opinions first before I send it back.

Please see the following two images.

One is from the Panasonic TS2, the other from my old Cannon SD800 IS. The Panasonic was taken in Normal Picture mode (iA's picture looks almost identical) with auto White Balance, ISO, etc. The Cannon image was taken with everything in Auto as well. Almost every picture I take on the TS2 has this purple tint to it. And when I record movies there is purple horizontal banding. What is wrong with the camera?
