When I plug in both power supplies the lights on the power supplies are how they are supposed to be. As soon as I plug in the LAN jumper cable the light on the Rocket supply turns purple.
What are some reasons for this? Also these are plugged into a GCFI outlet if that matters....

The strange thing is that I can see the power light on both radios is lit up but cannot access either radio through the LAN port..... Anyone have any ideas???

I don't know about the light turning "purple" ... but the fact that it changes when you plug in the LAN sounds like either you are using a non standard or inconsistent wiring pattern or maybe you have a staple through your cable or something along those lines.

Why would the power lights be on both radios? Also if the Nanobridge has power, why would it not connect to the other end of the wireless PTP link?

The short can be made by an ethernet cable with a problem, or in alternative by the internal protection diode, present on every Ubiquiti device (usually is located near the ethernet port) is a double contact squared SMD piece 5 x 5 mm. marked GEZ.
This diode protect the device from problem on alimentation line, it's very robust, but in some case, it can dead, and can be substitute with a standard 1N400x series.
A nice evening to all

Oddly enough it was on a sector that had been operational for 6 months... But when the temperature swung to below freezing, the fitting went bad and took it offline.

43-north - did you ever figure this out? We just installed 2 Rocket M5's at a site, and both showed the "purple LED" (red/blue flashing at the same time). They are acting like they've been bricked. The POE adapter lights blue until you plug in the Rocket M5, then comes the purple lightshow.
No never did figure it out. Tried switching power supplies but that did not work. Ended up RMA the device. Once we installed the new one, all worked perfectly and has been ever since. Never did anything with the ethernet cable etc. Something in the radio itself was bad. I would just RMA it if I were you.
