When using an HD source in the Component 2 (1080i) input, the screen is very green tinted especially for the blacks on screen for about the first 10 minutes, then it clears up and the picture is normal. Any idea why this happens?

Re: Green Tint in HDTV for the first few minutes.
Possibly adjustments to the service menu could rectify this. Also, adjustments must be made to customer settings in menu for each input. In the past I have improved or solved this by making service adjustments, however, if you attempt this, please make sure you know what you are changing and make sure you are in 1080i mode. Service code (mute,1,8,2,power on)vol+ and vol- to select an item. Use mute and the menu to adjust. Use add to save the settings. Take your time. Hope this helps.

might be adjusted in the tech menu but I recall this set having early on a few odd issues--wrong color, lettering backwards or upside down etc---there was a software upgrade for those---you might want call JVC
You are probably on component input RED GREEN BLUE and the red has come loose at either the back of the tv or the source. If it is not loose, try inputting it into another input source. If that doesn't fix it, try new cables.
It sounds like you can have optical engine issue. That's if green tint was show up very gradually, until one day it really caught your attention.Normally some parts of the screen more green than other. It should get progressively worse. To solve this issue optical engine have to be replaced. It is pretty expensive repair if your TV is out of the warranty. In case if tint appeared suddenly in one moment - you can try to check component cable connection on the back of your TV if you are using one ( green, blue and red colored). Sometimes it's loose or after disconnection people reconnecting it in wrong way. Experienced tech will determine if optical engine is bad by running test patterns in special service mode. If green tint present on Grey scale - optical engine is bad. Sorry for bad news. Regards. Russ.
The only time I have had issues like this was because of the Component Cables not being in the right position (the Red and Blue connections switched), or a bad Component Cable where the Blue Connection is not receiving a signal. Swap out the cable to be sure and double check that it is properly installed. Green to Green, Red to Red , Blue to Blue.
Hope this helps,
The tv will show correctly in 720p mode. Cable box and PS3 must be set to display in 720p or the green tint will remain. For the PS3 I return it to 1080p when I am about to play a game, blu-rays and dvd's can only play in 720p.
if you have hd cable or satellite box make sure the component cables are properly connected(green red and blue) and matching same color in source (cable box or satellite and tv as well)
also make sure in tv menu that color and tint are 50%
