Hmm.. I moved my TV up onto one of those wall things today and the color of everything is green. Its a normal TV, only had it for a year. Anyone have any ideas? I messed with the color settings to try and fix it but it just made the green more or less intense..
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

Is it a Plasma or LCD TV? (That's what I imagine it is, since you said "wall things")

What kind of connection do you use for the TV? Component, S Video, Coax, etc?

It sounds like either your TV has demagnetized somehow (which causes discolorization. I may be entirely wrong on that though, I also highly doubt this happened), or (more likely) you're on a Component connection, and one of the colors isn't plugged in all the way. I installed TV's at Best Buy, and that would happen all the time.

*edit* So check and make sure all the connections to the TV, and anything else you have it run to (VCR, DVD, Game console, etc) are secure.

Thanks, its just a normal Philips TV. By wall thing I meant one of those things you put on the wall and the tv sits on it, it swivels. I WISH it was a flat screen. It connects to the cable box through 3 CVI cables and a 2 audio (red/yellow) cables in the A/V in slots. I think the only way it could be demagnetized was I had like 4 surround sound speakers about 3 feet away and they were separated by a 2 inch wood shelf. Could that do it? All the cables are secure also...

Well, you usually only see a TV getting demagnetized if it's A-Really really old, or B-Been damaged/dropped in any way.

I still think it sounds like something's not quite right with your cables/setup, honestly. But beyond that, I don't have a whole lot in terms of advice. Sorry!

Yup you were right. There were 2 red component cables plugged into the back, one for the CVI and one in the audio in. Had those switched around. Now its workin fine. Thanks!
