Re: seeing green du42px12x

I don't have a solution, but have a similar problem, when sceens change, red and green pixels form and create a burn in effect from the privious sceen. It happens after the TV has been on for at least an hour. I notice it most when goinf from a light to dark sceen. Any help would be great

Describe your sylvania lc225ssx green screen Problem Screen goes green occasionally. Switching to an HD channel then back usually corrects for a while. Sometimes power-cycle also temp fix.

Whenever I hear "green screen" it is a loose or faulty HD cable(s).

Check your HD connections to make sure they are inserted fully and if there is no change, try an alternate cable.

LG 47LC7DF LCD TV turns off with a pop then turns back on.

Sounds like a overheating issue. Try facing a large fan blowing across the back of the unit and see if this changes anything. If it does, it might help to blow the back out with compressed air as dust might be helping it overheat.
