    That sounds like the effect you get when you put a magnet too close, like in unscreened speakers. Keep them clear then switch the TV on and off a few times, and it will auto degauss the screen.

    If it happens again, switch sky to standby and turn to an normal station or better still an untuned one. If the green tint is still there it may be magnetic inteference as welwynnick said. This can be caused by speakers, phone station, radiators or even pipes in the walls.
