How to Fix a TV With a Greenish Tint

The hue and color temperature settings for your television regulate the amount of tint that will be displayed in the picture. The hue typically controls the amount of green tones, while the color temperature controls the amount of tint in the white areas of the screen. Adjust both settings to achieve a balanced picture.
