Green lines down length of screen on my samsung 40 inch LE40F8

The reason for the green lines are the resolution. I'm assuming you're TV is set at 1080i, not 720p or 1080p correct? What happens is the "i" stands for interlaced, meaning, your TV displays your images with scan-lines. The "p" stands for progressive, meaning, TV displays picture as a whole. You can not visibly see the scan lines when seeing 1080i, but certain TV programs are not outputting their show to the resolution you're at, which will cause you to have the green line up at the top of your TV. SOME TVs might let you adjust the settings to rid yourself of the scanline, but most consumer TVs will not let you without the maintenance code to protect your unit from over calibrating and braking your television. Hope this helps.

Moving objects extremely blurry in SAMSUNG LCD-football, golf,etc

This is a problem that will pretty much just be there on this TV. I know it has an awesome long as nothing moves. You can try putting it in "Game Mode" in the user menu and that usually takes care of it but you didn't buy the 120/240 Hz tv to watch it in 60Hz. I would say exchange it, and in my opinion buy a good plasma :)

Green outline/shadow on dark images or backgrounds

LVDS Cable is corroded - This is the cable the provides video from the TV Video Process board to the LCD Panels Timing Control Board.

Honestly, if you can take the TV back do so. If not, Service it using the manufacturer warranty

There green tint in my picture on all my connections on vizio 47

Try shielded video cables and make sure you have your cables hooked up correctly. Sometimes you can conect them wrong, specially the red one. If you are using componet in on your tv, make sure the red one is not connected to your audio. The green tint is because you are missing red in your picture.

Red picture

I would just call westinghouse and lie saying that you are still under warranty. Everything I have read about their tech support screams poor communication, confusion, and lack of manpower, so it would probably work.

Too much green color

Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.
