Question about Samsung HCL5515W 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Green Tint in HDTV for the first few minutes.

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?

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.

Red tint on the screen an picture


Make sure the signal cable for the input you are using is tight. Possibly try a different cable. Especially if you are using the Red Green Blue component cables. Make sure the issue is across all inputs. If so, try adjusting settings for tint. if that doesn't help you may need to replace the TV.

Picture has a green tint no matter how much you try to adjust out the green or add red.


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.

All my channels have a green tint on them.


You have not provided any details about your system. What components are in your system? How they are connected? Etc.
Have you tried resetting the TV? Have you tried switching inputs around?

Green tinted people


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,
