    I get green blotches on my Samsung 42" HDTV. When I turn it on it, the whole screen goes green, then the picture comes on but with green blotches running especially where white color should be. Anyone can help?

You need to repower the cable box. That should fix it.
Good Luck

SOURCE: green screen

Try doing a "factory reset". This will "burp the baby". Turn the set on and ignore what you see. From the side control panel, push the volume+ and channel+ buttons in synch. This will take you to a base OSD (on-screen display) that can best be compared to the BIOS on your PC. The real goodies are here.

On the OSD, you'll see "picture", "audio", and "advance". Using standard navigational input on the remote, go to "advance". Tab down to "clear all". The set will appear to turn off, but the front LED will remain blue. The set is re-formatting the on-board memory and will restart in a few seconds.

Your panel should now restart as normal, but will be returned to factory "burn-in defaults". Your color and audio adjustments will be lost, so you'll have to do some fine-tuning in the regular OSD menu. Cycle power to the TV after you have made the desired adjustments.

TIP: Perform the factory re-set a second time, then select "picture". Toggle down to "video format". You might find it set to "Pal". Change this, using standard navigational input on the remote, to "NTCS" or "AUTO". Cycle power to the TV after you have made the desired adjustments. The TV will now perform at a refresh rate of 60hz, the American standard. "Pal" is 50hz, the EU and Asian standard. The improvement to image quality will be noticable very soon, as both your eyes and the set adapt to 9.94 hz improvement. NOTE: You may need to fine-tune the TV again after making this change.

House struck by lightning and no picture in tv


I am so sorry but you should have claimed that on insurance. The amount of damage to all the solid state items in that set would mean that you are going to be replacing everything.

How to Fix a TV When the Screen Is Green


A TV is calibrated by the factory to provide a "standard" picture that attempts to appeal to the vast number of buyers who take the set home. To adjust a TV picture that is too green, you must first enter the hidden "service menu" that technicians use. Adjusting the colors to remove the green cast will save you the cost that would otherwise be incurred from a TV technician coming to your home. No special tools are needed, nor any expertise in how the TV works.

Press the power button on the remote of a TV whose picture is too green in order to turn it on.

Press and hold down the "Menu" key until the manufacturer's logo appears on the screen. This could take up to a minute or more. Release the "Menu" key when the logo appears.

Immediately press the "9," "8," "7" and "6" keys in this order. Press the "Enter" button on the remote to enter the "Service Menu" screen.

Press the "Menu" button to go to the second of the two "Service Menu" screens. Press down on the "Down" arrow until you highlight "Color Calibration." Press the "Enter" button to enter the "Color Calibration" screen.

Select one of the color bars on the screen. Adjust the color by changing the values of the color bar by pressing left and right on the "left" and "right" arrows on the remote. Repeat this procedure with the other color bars as well. Stop adjusting the colors when the green cast is no longer present.

Press and hold the "Power" button on the remote to exit the "Service Menu" and save the adjustments you have made. Turn the TV off.

Green is going, going, gone?


I would suggest check the the secondary side of the power supply for around 130VDC if that voltage is found to be lower than 120VDC I would suggest to replace CP80 with a 100 mfd@250 vdc. Part # 218374
Check Globalsemi.com for these parts.
