42H81 -- display's all green

I have an interesting problem with my 42H81 hdtv... its about 4 years old. HDTV works fine, that is, HD programming from comcast, or my xbox w/ an HD game, but any normal signal gets displayed in all green.... that is, all the rest of the cable channels that are not hd, and anything else on the analog inputs as well... anyone got any ideas on this one? Thanks in advance... -Alex

Try switching the input mode for the relevent channel -- from RGB to YcBcR.

Power down all componets by unpluging power cords from wall for 60 seconds. This resets memory.
