Honestly, this comment just goes to show that these green tinges, as well as yellow in your case, and red/pink (mine went from green to red with defined vertical edges) - I'll post pics later tonight) are imperceptible by a the vast majority of people. That, and the fact most people probably don't watch hockey, or golf, or basketball, or play video games, where these tinges are really only evident besides the few seconds of a commercial or scene with solid, light toned backgrounds.
I've went through three st30s last year and they all had green tinges and same for all the models I"ve seen this year including all the displays (UTs, GTs, and a VT) I tried with they grey slides on an sd card. At Sears the salesman even admitted to seeing an undefined green tinge in the upper right of a UT50 on display and it was even evident during the commercials showing, but he wouldn't budge on the price and only suggested to buy their extended warranty, lol!
Some displays are better than others obviously, with some not showing obvious blobs per se, but what seems to be common is a broad green tint to the middle of the screen with the entire left and right edges about three inches in showing a more violet tint in comparison. My S1 never showed this issue but I take it is just one of the quirks of the new panel tech Panasonic is using. It still bugs me though I've come to live with it. Well, that is until a few weeks ago when suddenly a red tint with defined vertical edges developed. I am lucky enough to be a Silver rewards member with a 60 day return window at Best Buy, so I just bought the 2 - year warranty from them on my 60th day.
When you consider this tint variation in the screen as well as the vertical shadow bands you get with motion, Panasonic plasmas are no where near perfectly uniform like the impression you get from some people and reviews claiming uniformity a positive trait.
And to the OP, that is bad! I sympathize! Especially since it's a VT50 and not something less costly like mine, a UT50. If you know anything about last year's green blob/tint issue one the UK forums you'll know Panasonic will not budge on their stance of it's "within specs." It really sucks!
