Exclamation Camera (backside) isn't focusing

Hi, I need some help! I have a Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, and the back camera isn't focusing. The app opens up just fine and appears to function normally, but the view is very blurry and not clear. However, the camera that faces me works just fine and is clear.

I can't say for sure when this started happening, but I took my last clear picture on January 19th. And yes, I wiped the lens off.

I clicked on settings and here is a list of them and if it's on/off, etc.
Self Portrait - Off
Flash - Off
Shooting Mode - Single Shot
Scene Mode - None
Exposure Value - 0
Focus Mode - Auto Focus
Timer - Off
Effects - None
Resolution - 3264x2448
White Balance - Auto
ISO - Auto
Metering - Center-weighted
Anti-Shake - Off
Auto Contrast - Off
Guidelines - Off
Image Quality - Superfine
GPS Tag - Off
Shutter Sound - On

Anything you can suggest is super helpful!!!!

That setting changed to "on" may solve the issue. Also, I'm wondering how many of those settings are default, and which ones you changed.

I changed it to "off". Didn't help. But the suggestion made sense. Thanks.

As far as I know, I never changed any of them.
