Hello, sorry to hear you are having this problem. To start we need to know:
1. What is the full model number of the Tv?
2. If you press MENU on the original Samsung Tv remote, is that also tinted green?
3. Does the problem happen if you connect different things into the Tv using different types of connections- hdmi, component, composite, coax?

Please reply with all the information to get started. Additional details may be required. My replies may take several minutes so please be patient.

Yes even in the MENU it is tinted green


Yes even if we connect different things, ie: netflix, dvd, etc.


 


I think this is a different problem but we also have a white dot in approx the middle of the screen

Jill,
The white dot is the DLP Chip-
