    I have a green tint as well.  When I turn my screen to black and white, it still looks bad.  When I use my remote, the volume and channel views also have a green tint to it.  What could this be?  Will it be expensive to repair?

Is the green color on displays as well. (Displays means the video generated by changing the volume or activating menu-and seeing if this is green as well. Secondly, turn the color all the way down to zero. Do you see a "normal" black and white picture? If you do, then the picture tubes are not the problem and you have a failure in the color processing area. Let me know....

    Thanks for the reply. It looks like you have bad components in the picture tube drive circuitry. At this point, you probably have to call a technician in your area. It would be very rare to have a bad picture tube with a set so new.

Green tint on TV screen when playing DVD's or Videos 2nd problem and can't record anything


1: Hi i would recommend trying the recorder on a different tv to check if the problem continues. If the green tint is gone then its the tvs inputs. If it is still green then its the player or the cord. Try a different cord if the green tint is still there then the player has a problem.

2: Now for the VHS to DVD. There are general a lock out encoded on the VHS if it is a store bought movie. This is to protect the content on the VHS from piracy and that would case the DVD to be blank. The VHS to DVD are made for converting your home videos like family vacations and stuff you record your self and not for commercial movies like the ones you bye at the store. If you want to convert old VHS movies to DVD you would have to get another VHS player and another device in between the VHS player and the VHS to DVD recorder.

The picture has a green tint to it on all channels


The color signal consists of Red, Green and Blue. Those three colors, at various degrees, make all the other colors on your screen.

If you have a BRIGHT green screen it's best you don't operate your set.
If it's just tinted green then there is a problem on the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) drive board. Do check your "tint" setting and see if someone misadjusted it. If that isn't it then you need to have your set on an electronics bench and get an estimate for repair.

Old TV and old DVD player


Make sure your TV is "tuned" to the proper input. To change the input, change the TVs channel below 02, find the "input" dialoge on the tv's menu, or press the "input" or "video" button on the TV or Remote.

Repairing a 20 year old VCR (By chance a BetaMax?) is not worth your time. Replace it with a $60 DVD/VHS combo unit.

Here are the settings:

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.
