Greetings,

I have a Philips 42" HD LCD that has developed a green tint on the screen and quickly turns back off when turned on. Is this a motherboard issue? I appreciate your help

Sounds like something's messed up on the video board. First thing I would do is open it up and check the capacitors. If they look blown, get them replaced or do it yourself. There's plenty of documentation online on how to do it, just do a search for "blown capacitor on tv" or something. Hope this helps.

unfortunately he's got the right idea.
Unless you're set up for it and highly skilled, today's TVs don't have a lot of other things for you to repair.
You might get lucky and see something obvious. but other than that you're pretty much done for.

Take it from a guy who's done electronics for about 40 years now. today's TVs are cheap enough to throw away and buy another one.

I had the same problem, i had two capacitors blow, i desoldered them and resoldered 2 new ones that were slightly larger in size that i got from radio shack for less than 2 bucks. Its been working solid ever since. That was two years ago. There is a good tutorial Here

If you have rudamentry soldering skills its easy, just becarful taking the TV apart. That was the hardest part.
