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.

I own a Quasar SP-3235 32" TV. It has a slight green tint after 10 years of use. How can I adjust the color screens on this set? Is it a function of the remote like Sony TVs or do I need to remove


I would open it first and look, a lot of those had both the screen and drive controls on the PCB at the end of the picture tube, at least look there first.

You are dead on in looking for the screen controls, if you find one it should only be a tiny adjustment due to age and the Crt changing a bit.

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.

Samsung txh1970 tv screen has green tint


I encountered the same problem with a color computer monitor several years ago. Everything went green. The repair techies told me that's a sign that the power supply is going bad. You will not be able to adjust the color. You will have to either fix it or replace it. Hope this isn't a common problem with this model Samsung TV.

Green tint I can't seem to fix


Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.


By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.

Cant locate or adjust the the TV color


All the controls should be accesed thru the on screen menu,your remote should have a menu or display button and if you press it on the screen of the tv you should see a list of different options ,I am not familiar with the kind of menu that your set has but I know the color adjustment should be in the same screen that allows you to change the brightness,shapness,tint,color and contrast,the more you use the menu and become familiar with it the easiest it will be to use.Let us know if you need more information.
