TV screen displays all green when turning on or when switching to an HDMI input

    The screen of the XR model series TV is green when turning it on or when switching to an HDMI input.

    This issue is addressed in the current software update. Until your software update is installed, you can perform a power reset of your TV anytime the problem occurs.

    Software updates

    Your TV must be connected to the internet to receive and install software updates directly. However, if your TV doesn't have internet access, you may be able to download the update file to a computer, extract the update file to a USB flash drive, and use the flash drive to install the update on your TV. Downloads are posted on your model support page.
