BTW, it appears that the OP has left the building.
Are you surprised? You guys hijacked his discussion like you often do!

The thread was "hijacked"? Nah, I don't think so. There was just one nit-picker. He was answered.
I gave a concise remedy early on. The OP was probably satisfied.
"Your post and the fact you are using a fairly old Rebel implies, that at one time the photos were good. Yes, no?
This should tell you, you set something incorrectly or you do have a camera fault. Do this little test. Remove any and all attachments to the camera and the lens. Nothing but a bare camera and a bare lens. No battery, no grip, no SD card, no filters nothing .
Charge the battery fully. Install it. Mount the lens and put the switch on AF. Put the camera to "P" mode and reset it to default. Menus, tools, clear all settings and clear all custom settings. Format the SD card. Set WB to average. ISO 200 and use One shot. Go outside on a nice bright day and take some shots. Take different subjects. If the pictures look good there is nothing wrong with the camera. And, you did screw up something. If on the other hand they still look off call Canon. 1 (800) 652-2666"

Don't think it was so much of a hijack as a clarification. If the OP searched his camera's menus and adjustments I doubt he'd find any reference to an Average White Balance setting.
I just figured the OP is one of those people with a real life and a job and maybe a family that occupies most of his time.

Auto White Balance is somewhat of a misnomer and should more accurately be called Average White Balance. Cameras aren't smart. They dutifully record whatever color casts they see. You can set them to a specific white balance setting to overcome this. Auto white balance, averages, using a specific set of instructions what it sees and does a great job, but it is just guessing. In effect it averages the scene. It is similar to the way it works in post editors like LR and PS.
