Help! 5D Problem

Help! I have a problem with my Canon 5D.


The problem appears to be with the LCD screen. The LCD is displaying all images so that they look solarized -- oversaturated and pixelated. Do you know what I mean? Apply the solarize filter in photoshop to any image and you'll see what I mean.


I just got home and downloaded the images that were on the card and they appear to be fine. So, the good thing is that it still takes photos correctly -- that is a huge relief because if I can't fix the issue right away it doesn't mean I can't use the camera.


The problem is that I can't view the images as they truly appear on the camera's LCD. I can view them -- they just all appear solarized.


Sort of a strange problem, huh? I can use it like this for the time being. It's like going back to film in that I won't be able to view results immediately. But I can still shoot hundreds of photos without the cost of film/development, etc.


Any suggestions other than to take it in and have it looked at?


I will be grateful for any help or suggestions.
