It would help if you told what camera and lens you see this pink/purple tint.

Well, you are giving absolutely no information that is usable for giving advice.
What light conditions are you shooting under when this happens?
What ISO are you shooting at?
Have you put a bias into the WB by accident? (note, I don't recall if this is possible on the istD).
Maybe post a picture with all exif data intact, they really are worth a thousand words.
