    From one day to the next, the screen displays almost everything overwhelmingly in green. The resolutions seems lower as well.

Sorry to say but your main board is going south, likely killed by a deffect on the power supply.

If you have electronics experience - check the power supply and make sure you are getting the correct voltage to your inverter boards and main av board - also do you see any movement on the screen take a flashlight and shine on the screen - if you can see a dark image on the screen check inverter boards and power first.

This is a foreign voltage issue. It's very high voltage with minimal current. Milliamps to say the least. It is not dangerous. The only way to test for this voltage is with a foreign voltage tester that low volt techs and electricians use to identify charged or hot lines. You can dump this foreign voltage over the coax cable coming into the house as long as the coax cable has a ground block outside where it comes into the house. If the DTV and XBOX are unplugged you say that it doesn't do it, correct? What other peripherals do you have plugged i when you unplug these two? Well, if that's the case then the problem is not your TV it's either the XBOX or the DTV. I diagnose these issues for AT&T Uverse and have come across similar situations like this one. How this voltage comes across the frame is too complicated to explain in this forum. First, determine whether or not it does it with just the DTV box hooked up. Isolate the problem down to the particulars. This voltage will pass over any connection between the peripheral and the tv. this voltage will cause other small problems like voice and video not sync'd, delay on channel changing, automatic shutdown of individual peripherals, etc. Do you have any of these symptoms? I can help you, but we need to establish a question answer forum to go further. Answer these questions and try to get more troubleshooting data. Excellent narrative by the way. Let me know.

Green Screen

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 ?

Green noise on all black images on my SAMSUNG LN LCD TV screen

I had a similar problem with my LG plasma. I used the Image Sticking Minimization
(Pixel Orbitor, White Wash, and Inversion) feature which is designed to prevent image burn in and ghosting. This ISM feature may be available on the Samsung or any other brand under a different name. I activated the "white wash" option for about 30 mins, the screen turns white and somehow the pixels get reset. The green noise disappeared after that.

I hope this helps. Phezbuster

Samsung hl-s6186 screen flickers and sometimes goes green

The humming will usally come from the color wheel(one of the only moving parts), which is part of the light engine. If the tv is starting to get a green picture that is a sign that the light engine is on it's way out.
