There is no known end user repair for this one as the sensor is the chip deep inside and most folk can't fix a "chip."

Maybe you could try PhotoShop and color correct these but my bet is that's going to be quite painful.

The purple sensor issue is well known. If someone doesn't respond they know and wants to look and they don't try a full reset then they may be out for a service call and money.

Here in the USA it's a toll free call to 1800SAMSUNG and you have the CNET Samsung forum you can try as well.
