Well I am not sure about that model but I had one do that and what I had to do was unplug and replug the LVDS which is the codt connecting the Main board to the screen. I am not sure exactly where it is located on that model but if you take off the back and locate the board that looks to be the "main" board. Then you have to locate the cord that connects to the screen, in mine it is a bunch of wires in a black covering, and unplug and replug it. I had to do this about 10 times to get the picture unfortionantly I already bought a new one but it now works.

The PDP ( plasma display panel) is defect.You can look for badly soldered SMD resistors on the COF panels wich are located at the bottom of the screen.
Beware,the flatcables wich the resistors are located on are verry fragile!

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.
