Pink screen when focusing

I am having trouble with me Pantex WG3 GPS. When I go to take a photo or focus my screen will go pink. If a photo is taken it is pink. I tried to reset the camera to the factor settings but that did not help. Any suggestions?

Sorry I know nothing about your camera or its settings, but I'm not liking the sound of your problem too much.

Someone hopefully will be along shortly to help.

You will need to print the photo to see if it is actually pink.
If the photo prints in color as it should then I would say there is a problem with the cable that drives the camera screen.
If the photo prints pink then there is most likely a sensor problem.

Does it only look pink on the camera display, or is it also pink when you load it into your computer? The former suggests a failed LCD screen while the latter would be a problem elsewhere in the camera. Either one will need a repair if a factory reset can't fix it.
