The greenish hue cannot be adjusted from the menu. One has to do it from inside.First confirm by turning the color settings to zero using the remote. You should get a clean black and white image with no traces of any color ( inc: green ). If your TV is greenish , the green drive on the base of the picture tube has to be trimmed. All you need is a screwdriver. There are dangerous voltages inside a TV, some as high as 27,000 volts !!!. Where the color adjustment has to be done there are voltages as high as 110 volts and 8000 volts.If you still want to make the adjustments yourself revert back for instructions
The tv needs degaussing (demagnetizing) unplugg the set tonight and then plug it and turn it on in the morning. You should hear a a "bonk" noise when the set is first turned on after being cold- this is the internal degausse circuit working and it should fix your problem if you don't hear the "bonk" sound or it does not fix your problem call arepair shop to have the degausse your set and possibly fix the internal degausse circuit.
If your lucky the degausser ckt will fix your rainbow in a few days. When the set is cold and on power up, the degausser works before the picture comes up(hum noise). Worst case, the shadow mask is messed up and it will never be right.
