If it is all green, it is usually just the connection that is not plugged in properly - disconnect the cables and re-connect and make sure you did not bend any pins on the connectors. Also make sure it is not a lose connection in the cable (i.e. a damaged cable) test this by bending the cable at the connector - sometimes u find its just a damaged cable that can be replaced.
It is possible that your tuner module has some dry solder/weak joints that is causing the fault. Open as before and look into the board very carefully to see if there is any weak spot. Use a good solderring iron to touch up all the suspect areas but be very careful and do not try this if not familiar to solder as it might turn serious. Hence you can ask an electronic technician to check on this and solder up the chroma/processing stages and reset. If this does not solve the issue , the fault could be failure of the concerned IC. Confirm and replace carefully. Hope you get this right.Good day
It is very difficult to hook a laptop to a TV using the method you are trying. To get it to work go into your display settings (right click on desktop, go to properties, settings tab) and drag the slider bar all the way to the left (to the lowest possible setting, the numbers should get smaller as you slide it). Then try again. Currently the resolution is not compatible with your TV.
If you are talking about a continuing display of features and menus, press the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons at the same time to shut off that display.
If the problem is that the set acts like you are pressing the front panel button and random things happen, there may be bad switches. Sometimes if Windex or other cleaners have been sprayed on to clean the picture tube, they can drip down onto the board and cause corrosion which makes the switches funky. They need to be replaced and the board cleaned of any residue.
If cable is hooked through cable box with a coaxial cable, then turn tv to ch 3 or ch 4 as appropriate.
If cable is hooked through any other type of cord (red/green/blue or red/white/yellow) use the AV+ or Source button to change your source to Av1, AV2, HDMI, or however you have the cable box hooked to TV (I am assuming your TV is a Philips).
