I agree, make sure to white balance whenever you change the lighting conditions. Also, more specific to your shots:

1. The green could be due to flourescent bulbs. Are you lighting your sets? White balancing?
2. May not be lit enough, or the nd filter is on, or the master pedal is too low, or iris is closed.
3. Your iris could be open with too much light in the shot. Try an nd filter, or closing the iris a bit.
4. Again, white balance, flourescent light, not lit enough, nd filter on, closed iris.

Make sure you light for the subject, the auto iris feature can sometimes make a shot too dark if, for example, there is an window with a light coming in, the rest of the room will look dark, including your subject.

1st pic... hmm perhaps a white balance on a purple card... the rest in post.
2nd pic... put your master pedestal at - 5 and go from there.

3rd pic.. ??????
4th pic... one and two?

Seriously though if you can provide images to see what your talking about it would be much easier to help.
