There's a cautionary tale here:
1. Winter is coming.
2. Verbal descriptions are notoriously unreliable and open to interpretation- what is a pink image. Does it look like it was shot through pink cellophane or it just that Caucasian skin looks like a sunburn.
3. It's basically impossible to buy a bad camera nowadays. If something doesn't seem right from day one:
- bring it back to where you purchased it for exchange
- if there is a camera club in your area go to a meeting and ask for assistance
- if you can't do that send it to the manufacturer for warranty repair
4. At least for me, life is too short to endure a problem for three years. I would either get it fixed or write it off as a bad experience and move on.

Thanks for your comments RobertTheFat ... I was thinking the same thing these past two and a half years that maybe it was just my camera taking skills ...
However I only shoot in auto mode ... I don't touch any settings nor have I ever looked at them ... I am afraid of messing things up without in depth knowledge... I figured one day I will read the massive manual but auto mode should be a safe bet ...
Tyrion thinks that is true also ...
My little Lumex camera takes great color pictures all of the time but has no great zoom capabilities ... I've been taking pictures for 40 years and have set aperture and speed etc ... worked with different lighting conditions etc
This camera has added pink no matter how I took the shot and the colors were so disappointing from the first day ...
A fine gentleman suggested the color sensor is broke
I hope it's that simple
Thanks Robert ... Ned has your back !
You are shooting yourself in the foot by assuming, against all available evidence, that your rudimentary understanding of your camera is sufficient for your current needs.

Robert the Fat ... yes my rudimentary knowledge of the Canon 80D should have sufficed since I turned the little dial to automatic ... that's all I needed to do right?
At least that's what the advertising touted from Canon said
Sip my iced tea and take faultless pictures set to automatic !
Let Canon technology take over ... relax ... you need not worry ... what could go wrong ... just focus and shoot with the light at your back ... it's a Canon !
The fully automatic setting turns your modern, expensive DSLR into the equivalent of a cheap, entry-level point & shoot. If the latter is all you really wanted or needed, it's what you should have bought. Live a lot, learn a little.
