Just when you thought that all of your worries swept away, you come across another query. We cannot emphasize enough on this fact that dealing with smart products require in-depth tech knowledge. You cannot keep on using these products without having any related knowledge. We don’t expect you to know everything but you should at least know what it’s like to deal with such queries.
After fixing the black screen of your Samsung TV now you have to deal with a green screen. What is with all these colors? These colors indicate the severity of the issue which you might be dealing with. Now the question is what do you do when your TV screen turns green? Well the answer to this isn’t based on a single line so we have to discuss certain things in detail.
WHY IS MY TV SCREEN GREEN?
Asking a question like this is your right and answering it is our duty. So the bone of contention is that you are witnessing a green colored screen and you have no clue what to do. Like previously mentioned problems, this problem also has multiple reasons for its occurrence. We will list down all possible solutions and will also guide you regarding their fixes.
MY TV SCREEN IS GREEN – WHAT ARE THE REASONS?
Your TV display is made up of 3 different type of colors; Red, Green and Blue. The matrix of these 3 colors combine in such a way that they display all the content normally. However, if any single color is absent then the display will be all messed up and you wouldn’t be able to see the content. The same thing might have happened with you, the absence of red and blue colors make only the green color to light which may lead to a full green display.
Following are the reasons why your TV screen has turned green without you noticing.
1. LOOSE CONNECTIONS:
If you have connected a gaming console to your TV or you have connected a cable box then chances are that your connection might get a little loose. When the connection gets loose or any wire is damaged then the TV is incapable to send the signals in the proper manner. When the TV will not receive proper signals then the screen will turn green.
So if you are using a single input then it will be easier for you to figure out the root cause. Check the HDMI connection that whether it is a stable one or not. Secondly, check the port that whether you have inserted the cable into the correct port or not. Lastly, if there isn’t any problem with the connection then check the cable. If the cable has any fault or damage then it would also contribute in this cause. Check for the faults and fix them as soon as possible.
2. SOFT RESET REQUIREMENT:
Latest tech products might get confused sometime and can interpret wrong signals. This wrong interpretation could lead to a plain green screen. This happens because the TV becomes incapable to understand the signals and displays wrong output (in this case green screen). For this problem you will have to perform a soft reset to overcome certain errors.

3. FACTORY RESET REQUIREMENT:
Doing a factory reset will surely make all your pre-defined settings go away. The need to perform this kind of reset occurs when you have made some changes in the settings and now you have no clue what to do. In this scenario if you perform a factory reset then all your settings will become default and you might not see the green screen again.

4. ENABLED HDR+ MODE:
HDR stands for “High Dynamic Range”. In most of the TV models if this setting is enabled then you might witness a green screen on TV. Why does this happen? This happens because in most of the TV models this setting is not supported. Even after this, if you try to use it then it will lead you to a green screen TV. Disabling this option might take away the green screen.
Disabling HDR+ mode is an easy task to perform. Just follow the steps and you are good to go.
STEP 1 – Look for “Menu” button on your remote
STEP 2 – Visit “Settings” and then select the option of “Picture”

Congratulations! You have successfully disabled the HDR+ mode
5. FAULTY/DAMAGED WIRES:
Sometimes when you have everything connected with your TV, some of the wires get damaged. Due to that damage the current flow stops or doesn’t reach to most of the parts. This thing creates a communication gap between different components and you see Samsung TV green screen of death. The most common solution is to get the wires replaced or at least fixed.
Take a voltmeter and check the power flow of the internal circuitry. If the power isn’t getting to any specific part then check the connecting wires of that part. If the wire is damaged then replace it with a new one.
6. SOFTWARE UPDATE REQUIREMENT:
Last but not the least, if you want to solve this issue then perform a software update. Performing this update might take away your green screen and you could see the actual content. Other than this if you already have your TV updated then skip this fix.
Follow the following steps to update the software of your TV.
STEP 1: Go for “Settings” from the remote’s menu
STEP 2: Visit the “Support” section
STEP 3: Find “Software Update” option and click on it
