Re: is the service tech lieing
Well, it could be true that that is your problem, but see what kind of estimate they will give you for fixing it, a big tv like this will cost quite a bit to fix. You could attempt to fix it yourself but I don't want to be the one to tell you how as I don't want to be the reason if you should get hurt from working on this. If it costs too much to fix, then projection tvs are not for your parents and you should try something cheaper and get an lcd tv. Circuit city has a 32 in for under $500. Basically if the gel leaked all over the tv, it may cost quite a bit and this isn't fun for them or for you. If you have any other questions, let me know

I am going to guess that model number is actually KP-65ws500
This is one of group of Sony sets that had bad picture tubes---red, green, blue----the tubes are no longer available and can only be obtained by removing the bad one and sending it out for rebuild (very expensive)
There is one easy thing you may be able to do to correct this problem---It involves no replacement of parts and is just adjusting the Green screen control---usually if this is the case when set comes on background will be somewhat (in your case) green---best way to see this is turn set on and have it on a unused video input---if screen appears somewhat green and has curved retrace lines--you may be able to turn the Green screen control down and continue to use the set---set will shut down if any of the 3 picture tubes pulls too much current--ie--goes to bright green, red or blue.
Let me know if you want to know how to attempt this
Green really shouldn't be adjusted, you adjust red and blue to the green. When a color is bowed that indicates that a part or two are bad, probably the convergence output IC's and possibly a fuse or fusible resister. You may need a tech to come adjust it for you because after replacing IC's the adjustments should be done in the servicers menus not just in the consumers menus.
I would try soldering your convergence amp ICs. Mitsubishi has had some issues with sparse solder at the ICs Dress up the solder a bit and see if this helps. If not you will no doubt need to replace the ICs there are two of them and they cost about 10.00 each. Let me know if you need anything further.
If the screen control for the green picture tube is set too high, then the colors will be greenish, there will be green where there should be black and there will be fine curved lines (retrace lines) in the picture. If you feel confident then you can open the set and look for the focus block which has the 3 focus and 3 screen controls. One row is labeled Screen and the green control will be the center one. Try turning that control down a little and see is the green background and curved lines go away. If they do not go away then there is something more serious wrong. If you do not have experience working on projection sets then allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
