Green Tint?

I was on a roll playing Dead Space 2 last night, so I didn't turn of my console when the thunderstorm started. There was a 5 second power outage, and possibly a surge from a lightening strike nearby. My tv went to a standby mode and I had to restore it to factory settings (never happened before, which is why I'm thinking power surge). The tv is fine now, but when I boot up my xbox the whole screen is green tinted. No, its not the green screen of death, and it's not the green stripey-thing that sometimes comes before an RRoD. It looks as if you adjusted the color scheme to make everyone look like Kermit the Frog. Other than the color, it seems to be in working order.

Already tried:

1. Unplugging for 5 minutes
2. Running xbox setup
3. Playing with every screen setting I can think of.

I read about the Y+RB reset, so I'm going to try that tonight. I'm also planning on borrowing someone elses cables to see if thats where the problem lies. Any other ideas?

Hook another dvd/cable box or other item to the same connections see if the colors are the same.

Hook the Xbox to another TV and see if it happens.

This will give you a better idea on what item is messing up - xbox or the tv
