The set has sound and no picture.If you the SSB could be the issue but the tiny red dots on a black screen will need the panle replaced also. There is a way troble shooting can be done to determine if you will need the SSB or the SSB and the panel.

First easy thing to try is unplug the TV from the power for about half an hour and try it again. If no luck; Do you get the same effect if you unplug the cable box from the tv completely? what about if you are watching something from another source - DVD player or VHS or PC or similar. Do you get the same? Could you post back a photo of the green dots etc? may help us to diagnose the problem. Do you have a model number for your set - it doesn't seem to have posted? awaiting your info :)

I hooked up my cable box up to my sceptre tv and it had sounds but the picture is black and white I even went and bought the blue and green cords but still only black and white


With the blue/green/red cords (Component) you need to get a very good bright light on the connectors so you get the plugged into the correct COMPONENT connectors on the TV. Note, there are white and red AUDIO plugs right near the COMPONENT input so you need to be VERY careful. If you get it wrong, the colors on screen are often off and even black&white.

How is your cable box connected to the TV? Screw on "COAXIAL", Yellow, Red, White "RCA", single flat connector "HDMI" or 5 colored plugs 2 X Red, 1 X White, 1 X Blue, 1 X Green "COMPONENT"

Brand new emerson led tv has this red tint to it. I have the cable hooked up to the at&t u verse cable box and just a basic cable cord going from the cable box to my tv. Would a hdmi cable fix this


You would definitely want to try using a HDMI cable.
Your current hookup requires signal conversion too many times resulting is quality loss and more chances of introducting errors and this might be where your red tint is coming from.
Assuming AT&T is providing you digital signal at 720 resolution or higher, the box then has to convert back down to composite video (340 resolution) in order to send it to your TV over the basic cable cord. Your TV then takes this low resolution signal and blows it up to fit your nice new flat screen TV.
Skip all that and use HDMI and you'll get the best picture that your provider is sending you. The digital input stays digital and is passed onto your TV over the digital HDMI cable with no loss to video or audio.

Tv screen goes black after 15-20 seconds


It's not the TV from what I can tell. I would start complaining about it and say you want a brand new box. Not used. They tend to give out boxes from people who previously had them and either didn't pay their bill or moved and clean them up.

My tv has a green screen but sound comes out, then when i change the input to play my ps3 the picture is fine. how do i fix it so i can watch cable


It may be the sequence in which you are powering on the TV and cable box. Try different combinations. HDMI is a flaky standard and compatibility with cable boxes seems to be more and more of a problem these days. If this does not correct the problem, switch your cable box connection over to component (Green, Blue, Red,.. White, Red). Your won’t have the problem with this type of hook up. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.
