Re: My tv has a bright grrn tint

Could be one of a few things. There are transistors on the CRT board (board at the back of the picture tube) which control the intensity of each gun (red, green, blue). The most likely thing is not too much green in your case, it's probably the absence of one of the other colors. Likely you won't see any red or blue in the picture.
One other thing could be a blocked electron gun (inside the picture tube) in which case get yourself a new TV, there's no cheap way to fix that, in fact, you can't even buy replacement tubes for most sets 'cause they're just not cost effective.
Another scenario is a faulty processor IC not giving the correct signals to the CRT board for proper color balance.
All of the above would require some electronics skill to troubleshoot. If you don't have any, don't even open the back, there's likely nothing you can do and you put yourself in danger if you don't know what you're doing.

Is there a color button on your T.V? Maybe someone bumped it. You know, like on the old Macs. I know your tv is new, but there might be a button. check.

My TV has a green / purple tint on the corners. Help?

It might be due to picture tube problem... As its too old, the picture tube might be weak and hence you might get colors at the edges.. Better replace the picture tube with a new one to solve this problem

The picture has a green tint to it on all channels

The color signal consists of Red, Green and Blue. Those three colors, at various degrees, make all the other colors on your screen.

If you have a BRIGHT green screen it's best you don't operate your set.
If it's just tinted green then there is a problem on the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) drive board. Do check your "tint" setting and see if someone misadjusted it. If that isn't it then you need to have your set on an electronics bench and get an estimate for repair.

Green tint I can't seem to fix

Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.

By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.
