Question about Vizio L37 Television
My TV screen is green when I trun it on. The sound works fine, but the screen just stays green. The picture sometimes comes on, but images are still left green. I unplugged all cables and plugged them back in, but that didn't fix the problem. Any suggestions. the TV is only about a year and half old. Thanks!
Found solution (although a pain) by trial and error. At first I turned off and unplugged the tv, disconnected the hdmi cable, put it all back together and plugged the tv back in and same green screen. Then I unplugged the tv and the cable box/dvr, waited 5 seconds, turned them both back on and NO green screen. I get the green screen about every 5 days, I have the cable box and the tv now plugged into a surge protector strip with an on/off button, so now when I get the green screen I simply push the button on the power strip to turn everything off at once, wait 3 seconds, flip the switch back on and NO green screen. If anyone has a permenant fix I'd sure like to hear it.

I unplugged my TV for 15 minutes and that fixed mine a few months ago, the problem returned today, I noticed that it was only happening on the HDMI 1 port, when using my Xbox (on HDMI 2) the problem didn't happen
if you only have 1 HDMI source, try switching to the other port

I had a similar problem with too much green and blue on my screen and no red. It was on all channels all the time. I called the cable company and determined that my cable box went bad so I am going to get a new cable box. (I have HDTV DVR cable box). To figure out if that is the problem unplug the cable box from the TV and plug the TV directly into the cable in the wall. If your picture is fine then you know it is the cable box.

Some people have found if you leave the TV on for 15 minutes the green screen goes away and the TV returns to normal. If it is a Vizio, the tech support folks suggest this:
Try to reset all setting and then to see if the problem is solved. 1. Press the Menu on your Remote Control;
2. choose Set up on the OSD;
3. then choose Reset All settings;
4. Press the Exit on your Remote Control to remove the OSD.
