I'm going to guess that you are using an RGB cable to connect to the projector and the projector is expecting a composite signal. The composite signal would be what uses a yellow connector when you use hte red/whjite/yellow type of cable. All of the video is carried by the yellow. If the projector is expecting this and you send out component (RBG in this case), then the only video signal processed is the green. Since the green also contains the sync signal, the picture will be seen but green.

Check the menus on the projector. You should find a video selection area that will allow you to change to component input.

Please update this if you have any more questions.

Your green gun in our tv is misagligned/out of focus. Your tv uses red, green and blue guns that layer in different shades and mix to create the different colors. Your green is a little off so the colors aren't mixing right which explains the green haze and the shadows. A tv repair man can fix this problem pretty easily and it isnt expenisve.

Samsug rear projection tv, everything looks green


Dust accumulation in color wheel, light tunnel, chip area can cause green tint.

It is very delicate area, light tunnel and chip can be easily damaged. Remove light engine assembly and color wheel. Blow dust out. Re-assemble. If the gasket around the color wheel housing is not replaced in the right position, or the housing screws not tightened correctly dust will contaminate the color wheel/light tunnel area.

Call someone that has done it a few times. If near Calgary, call me.

Color problem


use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

Problem with green color


One of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. If the green color is sagging from the top or bottom then the IC that handles the Green Vertical (GV) is bad, and if the green has moved inward on the left or right sides then the IC that handles the Green Horizontal (GH) is bad. Toshiba projection TV's typically use the STK392-110, and it is a good idea to go ahead and replace both IC's with the updated STK392-150's. If you do not have experience replacing convergence IC's then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
