Help with new 46" TV, showing too green

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I just bought a Samsung LN46C630 TV. Out of the box it has a really bad green tint to it when watching tv through my comcast box. I have the box hooked up via component cables. I know there is a way to calibrate it, but i have yet to find a good guide for it. On a side note, it looks completely fine when connected to my sig rig playing blu-ray movies via hdmi cables. Any help would be awesome!

If the tv is fine when connected via hdmi. I'm guessing you either have a faulty component cable or a loose connection from not inserting the cable correctly.

Before you adjust anything, you need to make sure it isn't your cable box causing the problem. Do you have any other sources? Since your pc looks fine, I think it's probably your cable box.
