Question about Vizio SV470XVT 47 in. LCD TV
I too have a simliar issue with my Vizio. After set has been turned on for about an hour, the images on the TV begin to be outlined with a florecent green/lime color that wont go away until I turn of my set. After five minutes or so, I turn the TV back on and things return to normal. But after a day or two, It will continue with the same problem. Please help. Thanks.
I found out that the main board gets too hot after few minutes that the TV is ON and that causes the interference of voltage, So, I don't know what causes it but my Vizio Tv turned green also and I installed a desk FAN behind the TV and kept it cool. This solved the problem, but as soon as I turn the FAN OFF, TV gets hot and turns green again. I spoke to VIZIO Customer Service and the people that I bought it from; Vizio knew about the problem and offered to fix it, but the wholesaler that I bought mine from is willing to swap it for another one.
I hope this would help to continue using the TV untill the problem is fixed.

I have seen this before. It is a tricky problem it's caused by two distinct problems causing one symptom. The first problem is with your backlight and the driver for it (this includes the ballast and inverter) and the actual LCD screen (the elements on the edge are not reacting fast enough to voltage changes.
A quick fix would be to replace inverter board that would stop the overdrive problem, now for the bad new the get rid of the green haze you may have to replace the screen, and that could get costly. I am only goin on what I have seen, in the past with this problem there may be other causes, however these will require the use of test equipment to do the job properly. I would me the suggestion that you have a qualified TV technician repair this TV for you.
I hope this helps,
