I can't get the color right. What are the perfect setting?

Have you tried preset picture modes off TV's "picture" menu or "picture" on remote control unit. Most modern sets have "preset" modes: normal, vivid, natural, movie, sports, user, etc. Try to toggle between those modes. may be the one of those will look right for you. Make sure: "user" mode is for custo adjustments. You must choose desired settings: "picture(contrast)", "brightness", "color", "tint", "sharpness", "color temperature". May also have: DNR(dynamic noise reduction", "black level expansion", etc. I'd try presets, first and make notice of those settings. If that is, still not right to you, you may be able to tweak "user" mode the way you like it, based on info from other modes. If that won't help, you may have an issue with your TV.
good luck,

What are the best settings for my samsung lcd tv 620 series

You only have the preset picture settings and the custom settings to use in the user menu.. Only your eyes can tell you what you like. The only other way to get a really killer picture is to have a Professional ISF Video Calibrator calibrate the set.

The screen has a permenant green tinge which dominates all other colours. If watching football the grass insted of being bright grass colour green is more of a dull drab green

It could be the tint settings on your TV. Check your TV's settings menu for color/tint options. If you can't find it, break out the manual and look in the index for tint or color, then locate the page and it'll tell you how to get there.

Make sure the tint slider is in the middle, 0 or 50%, depending on your TV.

Best of luck.

Cannot adjust color

Have you turned the controls from one of the presets? Presets are Vivid, Movie, etc. Most sets have to be in Custom or Customize to adjust the controls, likely on-screen with one of contrast, brightness, color, or tint selected. If those are horizontal bars then up/down selects which and right/left select decrease/increase or red/green for tint. Start with 50% if no reset (0% for R/G) or start with the non-Vivid settings. Consult AVS forums for you model to get better settings. Rules of thumb: Brightness should be as dark as possible without losing gray scale at lowest part. Contrast should not be so high that whites bloom or make it hard to see. Color should not blow out any color nor be unnatural. Tint is best judged on flesh tones. -Ken

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
