Take it back apart and check the video connector from the panel to the motherboard. It may not pushed in all the way or possible a pin was bent when you pushed it back on.

Also possible (hope not) that when you pulled the video connector off, you may have pulled out a wire form the connector.

Best bet is the connector is not fully seated. Disconnect and reconnect the video connector, it should go in with a little snap, do not force if it's not going in! That would be a bent pin or something in the way (cookie crumb, etc).

Good Luck!!!

Can"t find white or comfortable background screen other than a light green that is hurting my eyes


If you have a screen that gets "tints" of various colors on a corner or edge, check that the monitor plugin cable is not near or laying on top of a power cable, the magnetic field around a power cord will cause a monitor to get strange tints or lines in the screen. Option two if the entire screen has a tint equally all over it is possibly the color is out of adjustment or failing - a technician should be able to adjust it internally.

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.

Red tint on screen


Good Day,

Try resetting the TV by unplugging from wall outlet for 3 to5 minutes then plug back in. If no fixya take front grill off and panel and adjust the screen controls, turn color off adjust for Black & White Picture. Good Luck, big IRISH.

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.

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.

Green Tint in HDTV for the first few minutes.


Possibly adjustments to the service menu could rectify this. Also, adjustments must be made to customer settings in menu for each input. In the past I have improved or solved this by making service adjustments, however, if you attempt this, please make sure you know what you are changing and make sure you are in 1080i mode. Service code (mute,1,8,2,power on)vol+ and vol- to select an item. Use mute and the menu to adjust. Use add to save the settings. Take your time. Hope this helps.

Screen Green Tint


Turn down your color and see if the screen has a normal black & white screen. If it doesn't then the CRT is bad (picture tube). If it is black & White then you have a either lost your red or blue.That problem will be in your video driver circuit of which a service center can handle.
