Trying to get hd picture i connected dvi to hdmi cable, I get a picture but everything is a green tint. When same cable is connected to PS3 the picture is green until I play a game, even blu-ray movies are green. When the game is about to start the screen blinks and "NO SIGNAL" appears on the screen.
Re: Green tint to picture when dvi cable is connected
The tv will show correctly in 720p mode. Cable box and PS3 must be set to display in 720p or the green tint will remain. For the PS3 I return it to 1080p when I am about to play a game, blu-rays and dvd's can only play in 720p.

What media device are you using and how is it connected?
If its an external device (that is your not using a built in blu ray player or such) and your using compost video (it should be three wires for video, blue, green, and red) check the red wire on both ends. Most of the time this is the problem.
If your using a HDMI cable, or the above does not fix the problem, try replacing the cable.
If its only a slight tinting there should be a setting on your tv for fixing it. (Usualy named Tint)
I have found that the cable if it is an HDMI cable or DVI is the best suspect. First try another cable or a difrent piece of equipment to feed the signal to your set. Also make sure the cable connector is pushed in and is seated well in its female recepter.
The only time I have had issues like this was because of the Component Cables not being in the right position (the Red and Blue connections switched), or a bad Component Cable where the Blue Connection is not receiving a signal. Swap out the cable to be sure and double check that it is properly installed. Green to Green, Red to Red , Blue to Blue.
Hope this helps,
Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.
This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV-1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot (AV-4), but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot - if the picture doesn't roll, you're in business.
Once again, I doubt that your model # is a 60pp9202, since that model doesn't have a VGA or DVI slot. If the picture rolls after trying the above, you will need to purchase a HDMI-to-DVI-D cable and hook it up from the HDMI output of your HD receiver to the DVI slot (that looks like a VGA slot) on the back of your Philips or Magnavox.
It is the cable box. Using the HDMI or DVI output on cable boxes is a bad proposition; for some reason the cable box makers have not figured out how to make the HDMI/DVI output work consistently, something that rarely happens with satellite boxes. Use the component output. You will probably not be able to see a difference in picture quality and your problem will disappear. If you liked this solution, please be sure to rate it. Thanks!

I have the same problem here on this Samsung 40" LCD. its a 2007 model. everything was fine until recently. I had to reset my digital cable box. now the picture has the green tint. its ruined what was a nice tv, and it won't go away.
I had a similar issue, try adjusting the advanced settings on the DVD player.....I can't recall which settings it should be on, but when I adjusted them on my upconverting DVD player everything worked fine after.
