Progressive input suddenly is a green screen!!

Suddenly the progressive input on my Toshiba TV (non-HD) is showing a green screen. It does not appear to be from the video in as I have unplugged everything and it still appears green. The video image, besides being green appears fine.

Is there anything I can do here or anyone have a clue as to what may be the cause? Is the TV just shot somehow?

Loose cable will do that. . .

also not having the TV and/or player set to progressive will also. Recheck the connections and settings.

Well I thought that at first as well, but it occurs when nothing is connected to that input.

Unless that symptom is listed in the owner's manual, it may be time for a repair appointment. Nothing in any modern TV is "user serviceable".

You dont know what you are missing, man rite now you can buy an entry level hi-def t.v. starting about $500 and for about $1500 a top brand huge screen t.v. Once you hook up a hi-def cable or sattelite system and snap on discovery h.d. theater you will see it was worth every penny you paid for it steweee
