You need to get a remote. order one from ebay there about $20 do a factory reset, and use code 3355. this will reset the unit back to original specs. if no go, use the rem to manually adj the color to ur satisfaction.

SOURCE: The TV works fine but the screen is green. Color

LCD television sets dos'nt have crt's, but ofcourses out of the RGB circuitry, R & B circuitry is'nt working or its not receiving the proper signals, that's the reason you see only green color,

If you are feeding the signal thru DMI/RGB cable from your set-top box, check for cable loose contact, cable wear-out, if you are feeding the signal thru coaxial cable its problem within the TV's circuitry.

FIX THE COLOR, IT HAS A GREEN TINT THAT DOESN'T GO AWAY WHEN TRYING TO ADJUST COLORS FOR DISPLAY DON'T KNOW WHAT CAUSED IT


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Need to change tint, color on screen using the remote of course


Since you do not provide the make and model number of the TV so we can look for the user manual for you to read on how to make adjustment to your TV.
You just have to get to the MENU button on the remote for the ON screen setup menu and look for Picture adjustment set up to adjust the Pictures.
It should show Brightness, Contrast, Tint, Color adjustment choices.

Color and tint looks different. There is a green hue to the screen, and adjusting the tint and color does not help.


There is a problem with the connectors desoldering in the tv. My mother in laws tv did this after 2 months. Should be warranty issue if less than year old

Here is something that may help from the toshiba.com website under your model number television. Q. Why are people on my screen green?
Models: 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 42HL167, 47HL167, 52HL167, 42HL167, 42LX177, 46LX177, 52LX177, 57LX177
REF:FAQLCD00107
If the problem is not the connections, try adjusting the tint on your television. A high tint setting will usually create a green
image on the screen where as a low tint will create a more red hue. In order to access your television's tint:
1. Press the “MENU” button on your remote control and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys and select the
VIDEO menu.
2. Then use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight PICTURE SETTINGS and press the "ENTER" button on
your remote.
3. Next use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight TINT then use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to adjust the
TINT. If the picture is too green the tint will need to be lowered.
4. Once you have adjusted the tint to your liking, use the DOWN arrow key to highlight DONE and press ENTER. The toshiba customer service telephone number is : 1-800-631-3811. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Green color on Samsung ln-t4042


If the whole screen has this tint problem, there is nothing you can do. It must be repaired. You will need to take it in for service.
