Yes this is commonly happening to these plasma tv's, it is the video processing board
and it will need to be taken to a repair shop , because only certified service centers can get these parts from the manufacturer , there is a replacement kit that is available for these problems , do you still have a warranty?

I have a RCA 42"


The YSUS control board has failed from the description given. This is typical of the symptoms presented. It can be removed fairly easily and sent to a repair center to be repaired.

The pictures are mostly green - like instead of black it shows green


It's called Cyan and it's sound like you are having a problem on your D-board. Look for capacitors bulging out and replace first if not then order D-board

Cracked plasma screen


A plasma display is a very expensive part to replace. When the plasma display is broken, the tv is usually not worth repair.

Call Nec at the number listed on the owner manual, and ask a quote on part or repair.

Screen mass of colours


The display driver board may be at fault, or the screen backplane electronics may have a failure. The service tech will try the boards as suspected to service this type of fault.

If the backplane of the display is defective the service cost will not be acceptable.
