    Same problem here, Mitsubishi sent out repairmen they replaced some sort of circut board? The problem SEEMED solved yet several weeks later it started up again. Not only does it turn green now but also has green and red lines appearing then screen gets distorted with lines of color as screen sometimes turns almost black, colors run together and then it looks like it would if a signal was very weak or cable not connected. We turn tv off and after a few minutes, turn it back on and it's fine for awhile. Mitsubishi just came back today and said they need to WITNESS this. TV is fine at moment, they told me to record it and call back so they can see it. Repairmen are pointing to our Cable company blaming signal but not realistic. All other TV's fine, cable company has checked signal plus once they made first repair it worked for awhile then stopped working so it doesn't sound like a cable issue. Warrenty up in 17 days. I want this fixed. Any help appreciated. Will update after phoning Mits' again. Repairmen will contact me after advised by Mits' as to what action (if any) to take. thanks angel

I had the same problem. I deducted that if my TV worked fine for an hour or so and then the colors became bad (green, people's faces purple...), it must be a overheating problem. Simple logic, right? So, I picked up a few tools and a small vaccum and went to work.
I went first for the main source of heat: The lamp. Just a few screws, and I removed it. The lamp cage has a fine screen to prevent the dust to cover the lamp. Mine was covered with dust! And the fan behind the lamp was also covered with dust! Bingo!!! That's my problem! I cleaned everything and vaccumed all the air vents on the the back of the TV. I put the lamp back and checked that the fan was working. The TV works like new since!
Before you are out of a TV for days and spend an arm and a leg for a "Technician" to fix it (replacing expensive parts that didn't need to be replaced in the first place), try what I described above first. It's very simple and it takes only 15 minutes.
Since my TV is 2 1/2 years old, I purchased a replacement lamp. I know that one of these days it will burn out. I'll be ready and my TV will be working again in 15 minutes!
Since my problem was solved, I didn't go to the next step. There must be one or two other cooling fans inside the TV, but they must be working...
Good luck,

I started seeing the same issue on my tv, THinking it may be related to heat issues I removed the back cover where the lamp is housed and stuck a piece of folled up paper into the slot that that has the "cover open" switch. then put a regular fan to blow in there, this solved the issue . Now I need to check on the lamp fan when I have teh time to make sure its not out of service.

How to set the auto off??


I had same problem. Could not find manual on-line so I tried different techniques. You can reset the auto-off feature to extend the "On" time up to 3 hours max. You do it by (1) placing the control switch in the "Off" position. (2) Simultaneously push the "Hr" and "Min" buttons. The time display will start flashing the hold time. (3) Push the "Hr" button to cycle through the available hold times, 1 - 2  or 3 hours. When set, turn the selector switch momentarily to any other position to finish the programing.

Tv turns off then on


It's time for a new lamp. What you are seeing is the result of a weak or old lamp and the TV sensing that it is drawing too much power and turning it off. I've seen this many times; a new lamp will cure. Be sure to buy an original Sony lamp as the aftermarket replacements are known to have problems. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

KP51ws500 turns green and shuts itslelf off


There may be several causes but, one is that when any color gun is being over driven, the Sony shuts down the gun to protect it. Try this. Remove the front of the set by removing the two screws from each lower corner. Next remove the black panel held on by 5 or 6 screws. Now you should see a panel with 6 potentiometers on it. Turning the ones on the bottom row CCW reduces the drive. Turn the color down and if all the guns stay lit, SLOWLY turn them up until you get the color balance that you like.
