Hello and sorry you're having problems. There are a couple of different causes of a green hue to the picture. Please let me know if this is a solid green screen (no picture present) or if the image is present but with a green hue?

Also, if you grab the original Mitsubishi remote and press MENU, does the TV's MENU appear in normal color or also have this green hue?

These details are needed in order to determine what is causing this problem.

Please elaborate with details as I am not there to see what you see. Please let me know if this is a solid green screen (no picture present) or if the image is present but with a green hue?

Color is good but all the edges to people and objects are a green static like background
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

Okay, offhand this sounds like a fault in the DMD (formatter) board. However if you would like me to check this with certainty, then can you post a picture here- and also a picture with the MENU pulled up?

Also when you switch channels the background has always been black and now it's green and squiggly colored

Hello are you there
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes I posted something above, you can explain and this sounds like a DMD formatter failure. If you want to repair this set and have me find the part it would really be better for me to see a picture of what you're seeing instead of simply interpretting text no?

I need to see a picture of what you're seeing, I also need to see a picture with the MENU pulled up. Or, if we want to go based off your description- then you need to replace your Formatter board. That's about $300 at a shop, but the part itself can be located much cheaper than that if you're looking to repair yourself. There's not a pushbutton fix for this though that much I can tell you with certainty. Let me know how you'd like to proceed.

If the MENU is also affected, then the part below is what needs to be replaced (it formats the picture before being sent to the light engine to display):

http://www.shopjimmy.com/mitsubishi-00-ld311g001-formatter-board.htm

This is only the case if the TV's native MENU also displays the same way, if the MENU is fine over a skewed picture then you're looking at a Digital Main fault.

These boards are all plug and play, but you would need to be comfortable removing the back of the set and replacing parts inside of the TV to do this.

If not, then you can use the link below to locate a shop in your area if you'd like:

Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.
