One way you might test it out is to pick some sort of screen that sisplays the same (or similar) colors within the exact same section of screen real estate that your sub-menus occupy, and see if you are observing the same strange color cast.

If you ARE, then this is probably a display problem (i.e. pixels and or coatings, and or backing pcb damaged in some way.

If you DO NOT though, then this is related to how your BB is telling the correctly-functioning display to color the sub menues.

Try these tests. If the second case turns out to be it, thenit is highkly unlikely that there is a physical defect in the display. Physical defects will ALWAYS show up in the same place, regardless of the content on the display.

In the meantime, I will look closely at my BB screen tomorrow and see if I notice anything similar to what you are describing.
