Re: why does the screen turn green when i hook hdmi cord...
I had the same problem.... Occasionally when I changed stations, the screen went totally green.
What fixed the problem was to NOT use a HDMI cord at all! Instead I got a cord made up of five separate "prong" cords (like we use to hook up the old VCR's with ), all with different color-coded prongs that individually get inserted into the corresponding colored holes in the back of the Cable box and into the TV. I got this special cord from my cable company Comcast.

You will need an HDMI cable. Please follow the below instructions.
Before you begin installation:
Turn OFF the PS3TM system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)
Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet
Turn OFF and unplug the TV
Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PS3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
Plug in the AC power cord by connecting one end of the AC power cord into the [AC IN] port on the back of the PS3 system and the other end into an electrical outlet.
Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.
Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.
Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.
Plug in the TV and turn the power on. The PS3 should detect the HDMI display device automatically. When prompted, "Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", select YES and press the button. (You may need to press the PS button on the center of the SIXAXISTM controller to enable the controller first).
The next screen will ask, "Do you want to automatically switch to the optimal setting?" Select YES and press the button.
On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, "Do you accept the setting?" You will have 30 seconds to confirm your answer.2 Select YES and press the button to save your settings. You have now completed the HDMI installation.
the colored cords that are not the standard yellow red and white are composite cords most game systems dont support composite cords so i would suggest an HDMI cord that can be purchased for as cheap as 5 dollars
ours would do that i wont guarntee this will work but try using a different connection like we had a HDMI cord running to our cable box and one day it just went black so i unplugged the tv and still had the other componet wires hooked up to the box i thought it was the cable box so i tried another one and switched the input on my tv and it worked after a few days i could use the HDMI connection again not sure y but hopefully this is what your problem is.
New cable box recently? If not, your cable provider has probably pushed a firmware update to your cable box. Green screens are very common with HDMI connection. From your symptom, I am going to take a guess that you are connected via HDMI. If so, switch to Component cables and your problem is solved. It's not the TVs fault... cable boxes seem to be the single largest problem child for HDMI compatibility. I hope this was of some assistance.
may be a problem with the input on the tv or the receiver itself. if you have another receiver, try hooking it up to see if you get a video or component cables (red, green, and blue) work just as well these are video only so also have to have composit cables hooked up with it
Hi, how is the cable box hooked up to the TV? Is it HDMI cable or componet (red/green/blue) ? When you say totally green, do you mean the the picture is only green with the other colors missing or every color looks green ?
sounds to me like a connection problem. If the compaqs output is vga, you need to convert the input (tv side ) to hdmi, component, s-vidio... what ever you can find. Typically when you hook up your computer to a flat screen or such, its best to try to use the hdmi ports or the rpg. But if thats not available you need to take the outout from your laptop ( whatever type that might be and input it into your flat screen tv. If you input laptop into tv under ( eg..HDMI) then when you VIEW it you need to select the correct source on your flat screen. Such as hdmi or pcmi or rpg.I know that the do sell alot of cables that adapt from one type of connection to another. Typically only one cable is required from the laptop to the flat screen. If you think about it you are only using the flat screen as a monitor.
