I couldn't find anything on this, but since I started going flash crazy with the new EI22 ROM's, every once in a while my display colors will randomly go crazy. The best thing I can liken it to is like going from a High Def view to a 16 color view. Everything gets a purplish tint and everything will almost look like its in a negative view. If I lock the screen and unlock a few times, it will go away. I have tried flashing multiple ROM's and kernels, and just recently Odin'd back to stock. And it even happened there. Currently flashed to EH17 Thunderhawk and happening again. Is it possible I have borked my display? Trying to avoid bringing it in for Sprint service!!

I had this happen with a new replacement unit I received. It only was intermittent and usually just an off looking tint not a negative image. That phone got replaced too when I dropped it on cement.
