Lightroom showing all photos with sepia colour cast - thumbnails & other elements are fine

I'm new to Lightroom and was in the middle of learning how to use the healing brush to remove dust marks when my monochrome photo I was working on suddenly becomed sepia toned. I tried the 'Back' command in case I'd done something but it only undid my healing tool actions. Now whatever photo I click on displays with a sepia cast whether monochrome or colour. The cast isn't present on thumbnails or anywhere else, only when I have a photo open. Restarting Lightroom makes no difference.


I found advice via Google that it may be due to monitor colour profile but I don't understand why the sepia only appears when I have a photo open and why thumbnails look normal. Why would it suddenly change for no apprent reason? It was fine before....


I'm using a PC with Windows 10.


Any ideas?
