EVF on Brand New GH4 has turned...PINK?!

I got a brand new GH4 2 weeks ago from Adorama. The camera has worked perfectly thus far. Tonight I took it out to shoot some Halloween festivities. After taking a couple photos without any issue, I went to take another and noticed the EVF display was completely pink with a thin blue line (like 1 or 2 pixels wide) running down the left side. I actually snapped a pic with my iPhone:

I've tried turning the power off/on, removing/reinserting the battery, removed/attached the lens (I have the Panny/Leica 30 mm 1.7), cycled through all the EVF/LCD display modes, swapped the memory card, switched between every mode, etc. but the EVF is only displaying a solid pink screen with a blue line down the left side. The LCD display works fine. However, if I switch the display mode for the LCD/EVF to auto or just to EVF, the screen is pink. Not sure how this could happen so suddenly.

 

Has anyone else had this issue? Do I just have a bum camera? Having only had it for 2 weeks, I'm still under warranty (though this is the first time I didn't buy an extended warranty!) so hopefully they can just replace it or have it fixed free of charge!

 

Thanks in advance for any info!
