Sony AX2000 LCD issue on overlay text - RED color under white text

Well, after 4 years of soft use the AX2000 shows this issue, on LCD screen and visor: RED shawdows under overlay texts & graphics.
It don't affects recordings, but it's a bad signal. Let's wait to see what happens.

Now I'm using a new Canon XA20 (yes, the mames are vey similar) and I am very surprised by the quality, use and performance.
More recording options (1080 50p, etc.), wifi remote (quite useful), more image definition (the AX2000 is more or less a quite good 720p sensor, not FULL HD), less noise and very very similar in luminosity (one stop abowe????, I can't mesure it but is nearly the same in real conditions recording the same in dual carmera mode).
I can combine the two seamlessly if I render the final output to 720p. If I mix together to a 1080p render the AX2000 shows less definition, quite noticeable.

Then is better to use the AX2000 for closeups and the XA20 for wide shots.
