It's good you said you still have a tint b/c otherwise your claim would be well... laughable, I explained why. New V2 has purple tint.

I am new to the Wyze cam world, v2 is my first cam.

I sir will return this laptop and go back to Dell if I don't find a proper fix by tomorrow. Have you extended the camera away from the gray base and then turn the night vision off and then on again (camera settings > Advanced, or the night vision button atop the live stream)?
