There are 2 types of 7 segment leds .. Anodic and Cathodic..
No issues seriously.. its just the polarity difference..
In the other type.. all reds will have to be ground and green will be positive.
Connect the green to ground. Then to which ever pin you give a positive supply of 3V that corresponding LED will glow !
