RHR Screen Turns Purple
I recently had an issue with my RHR Radio/Nav system that resulted in the screen turning purple. All of the images were still distinguishable, but everything had a tinge of purple and all of the print and pics were pixelated... even the image on the back up camera!
The last thing i remember doing before this happened (almost like a switch was turned on) was syncing my cell phone to UConnect. I don't know if these were associated, but that was the last thing i remember doing. The vehicle was at about 2k miles (so not a lot of use) and the weather was HOT. I thought perhaps it was just over-heated, so waited it out a few days... to no avail. I also saw some RHR write-ups that advised a reset could be done by going to the engineering screen (pressing both seek buttons and the menu button (all "hard" buttons)). I did the reset, but no change. Also, read about clearing the system by holding the Open/Close hard button for 20 seconds... this only is useful if you have disconnected the battery and removed the fuse ("IOD"?)... i did not want to do that, so then proceeded to dealer. They did not have any idea how to troubleshoot the RHR, so luckily enough, they ordered a new one in for me and all is good ... hopefully for more than 2k miles this time!
Now that this is over, but potential to happen again i guess, I would be interested in others experiences specifically with the RHR and if there was an actual fix for this issue.

It's broken. The driver for the green LEDs in the screen has failed or become detached, so only the red and blue LEDs light up.
