Tv looks fine when playing movies or Tv but looks all teac blue when using xbox360
My Tv seems decent when watching regular Tv but as of lately it looks like there is blue althroughout any areas that are normally white. Red looks silverish. I tried the xbox on a different Tv and it looked normal so I think it must be the Tv ? How come it looks fine when watching regular movies but all of a sudden loks like convergence is bad when playing xbox?

If you turn color off and stand back and examine the screen---if it is not black and white but yellow looking you have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube which is quite common.
Easy way to know for sure is with set on and rear cover removed peek with a small mirror at the three lens---don't touch anything with the set on===each tube red,blue, green should have a picture with the set on.
Likely you will find the blue one looks like a floodlight with little or NO image/picture.
It is possible that there is a allergy that is growing the blue and green gun, it will not grow in the red gun, and it blocks the video and makes it look dark, on the greenish side. To fix the problem, you have to change the coolant in the guns, and then it will look like new again.
Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.
The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Tint would be the control that will control the color balance, but this sounds like it may be deeper then that. Turn your color all the way down so that you have a black and whit picture. If the picture is still yellow then you have a problem with the blue picture tube.
Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:
Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).
You would need the service manual and actually trouble shoot the input circuits. If you would like a link where you can purchase the manual and have it emailed instantly to you let me know. The service manuals there are cheap and the quality is exceptional.

I have replaced alot of these light engines for this problem.
Yesterday I received a letter from Sony saying they are going to give an additional warranty to have the optics replaced.
I just checked, your model is one of them and Sony is replacing the optic block under an extended warranty, regardless of the purchase date, until the end of October 2008.
Contact Sony for an Authorized Service Center in your area or go to this site to read about it:
Have this repair done on your set and it should save you about $1300.00 to $1500.00 on the repair.
Hope this helps.
