XL2 w/green highlights. Sensor problem?

Has anyone had this problem before? Fully overexposed parts of image show white as per the usual, but the edges of these highlight areas are a bright green. The two photos below are taken from captured footage, so it's not just a viewfinder issue. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi, Ben...........

Can't tell you what it is, but the first thing I'd do is a hard/ factory reset (do make a note of any special settings BEFORE you press that button).

If it's still there after that, at least it isn't a fried ROM.

If it is appearing on all your footage I can't think of anything else but a date with the serviceman.

Anything specific in the settings such as white balance or color correction. It looks to me as if the R and B channel run out of gain/headroom and go into saturation before the green channel catches up and paints it bright white.
