42" Plasma Displays only Green Screen


For the past three days, my plasma only displays a green screen, not the picture! I checked the cables -- everything is fine. The TV is mounted to the wall.

I can't find the instruction booklet, but I purchased the TV in around June/July 2003.

    Has anybody encountered a problem with their Plasma TV displaying too much green? (Looks like watching the Incredible Hulk.)

    I noticed that when I am watching cable (HDTV DVR) the picture is green. However, when I am playing a DVD its really good. I am using Audioquest Component Video Cables to play DVD (Denon Receiver and Denon DVD player).

    Could it be my cable connection or converter box?

    I have had a plasma for 6 months, when I bought the tv I purchased an hdmi cable with some kind of filter that attaches between two hdmi cables and adjusts the picture. Yesterday my dad turns on the tv and gets a green screen so I turn it off and on and off and on sometime fixes problems with the screen. Turned the cable box off, tv on and all that stuff. messed with the tv settings. I came to the conclusion that the hdmi cable was causing the problem so I used a coax and hooked it up and it worked but the picture is really crappy. went to walmart got a new hdmi cable hooked up and i have the green screen again???

    Green screen problems are usually video cable problems. dds426 you should try a different cable, even if you have to run it externally, to check the cable.

    Chief2002's issue sound more like a calibration issue. Chief, how is your HDTV DVR connected to your TV? Does your DVR have it's own color, contrast, etc., settings?

Dds426's reply:

The problem was not a cable connection. A chip needed to be replaced at the tune of over $600j (includes $200 for the repairmen coming to my home to dismantle and take to the shop and return it).
