According to your description it is one of two things...
Each of the 3 primary colors in an older “Tube” TV has it's own driver circuit. This is most likely your problem. It could be something as simple as a transistor and possibly some support components in your green driver circuit. The other possibility is the color gun in the tube itself has gone bad. If you have electronic repair knowledge then you can certainly attempt the repair it yourself. However, if you do not, it is VERY dangerous or even deadly in the back of these sets and you should call a technician for the job. Now comes the question... Is it even worth fixing? Well, you got a lot of good years out of it. Quite often does an older TV get repaired just to break down again soon after. Picture quality and technology has come so far since then they you may want to consider investing in a new unit. The new F.C.C. Digital broadcasting rules will also affect every older TV to the point that very soon you won't even be able to receive a broadcast with out a signal conversion box.

Green tint I can't seem to fix


Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.


By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.

Check the cable connections and/or replace the cables to the AV2 input.

If replacing the cable doesn't provide a solution, try running your DVD through the input. Since it works fine now, you would be checking the input AV2 by putting your working DVD. If the DVD plays with no problems, the input is fine.

Also try the VCR using coax into the TV instead of RCA into AV2. This will give you some idea about the condition of the VCR.

I suspect either the VCR or the cables.

Screen Green Tint


Turn down your color and see if the screen has a normal black & white screen. If it doesn't then the CRT is bad (picture tube). If it is black & White then you have a either lost your red or blue.That problem will be in your video driver circuit of which a service center can handle.
