How to Fix a TV With a Greenish Tint

By Nina Nixon

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.

Step 1

Press the "Home" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to highlight the "Settings" icon. Press the "Enter" or "OK" button on the remote.

Step 2

Press the arrow buttons and select "Picture Settings" from the Settings menu.

Step 3

Select "Hue" from the Picture Settings menu. Use the arrow buttons to decrease the level of green tones.

Step 4

Select "Color Temperature" from the Picture Settings menu.

Step 5

Use the arrow buttons and select "Cool" for blue tint; "Warm1" or "Warm2" for a red tint; or "Neutral" for a neutral tint. Press "Enter" or "OK" when you are finished adjusting the picture.

Step 6

Use the arrow buttons to select "Advanced Settings" from the "Picture Settings" menu if the greenish tint is still visible.

Step 7

Select "White Balance" from the "Advanced Settings" menu and use the arrow buttons to reduce the green color temperature. Press the center button on the remote control navigation wheel when finished.

Step 8

Use the arrow buttons to select "Reset" from the "Advanced Settings" menu if the greenish tint is still visible.

Tips & Warnings

  • Decrease the greenish tint in small increments. An unnatural picture tone may result from too much of that color being removed.
  • The steps for removing the greenish tint from your TV may vary slightly; please refer to your TV user's guide for details specific to your model.
  • A picture settings reset will revert your TV to factory default. Since it will take more time to re-input other picture settings, only perform a reset as a last resort.
