Is my 4K Fire TV stick dead? Everything is covered by a pink slightly pixelated haze. The HDMI ports work fine with other equipment. The stick is only one year old.

Here's the normally black setting screen:
It looks blue here but in person it looks pink.

Here's the home screen:

Yeah that looks pretty messed up. Does that stick have an option for changing the color output format between RGB and YCbCr? If so, try switching to the other one and see if it helps. Otherwise I guess reach out to Amazon and see if they have any suggestions.

I would get something like this when on my Sony TV, I had the enhanced 4k mode selected for bluray players that could only output 1080p.
