Does it appear only on broadcast sources? A particular channel?
I have a similar problem with red objects - Big Red Dog on PBS channel
28 has a pink border. So does the Canon logo on Nature broadcasts. It
drove me nuts! until I figured out that it's being transmitted that way;
or at least it appears that way on all TVs tuned to that channel.....
Also, if it's an analog TV, try a different cable. Maybe it's some sort
of weird ghosting due to reflections in the cable?
