New K-r, screen problem

Hi, everyone. I received my new k-r this noon and found there is problem about the screen. The color of the screen is very strange. Please see the attached pics for reference.

I have tried to set up with some threads posted before but have never solved it. Any message from you is welcome.

Weird. That's two this week with this problem. It almost looks like the color depth of this one is too low, like badly displaying 16 bit colour when it should be 32 bit (although that's just an example, I'm not sure what the correct colour depth is with the K-r).

Thanks for posting this. I've now decided that when I get mine (which should be soon) I'll get it from a brick and mortar so I can verify it's alright before paying.

Return it

Definitely a display screen problem. It looks like a 10 or 15 years old "bleeding" LCD screen due to humidity & temperature on old digital cameras. Return the unit and ask for an exchange or refund.
