Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF42WE610 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have a blue and yellow picture. When I go into the color slides, the green hue will not slide. But when I run a DVD movie through the TV, the color is fine. It seems to be just the adjustment slide for the green hue. It isn't filled in solid like the other slide controls.
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

You can write or call Sony. We had a little battle with this about a year or so ago and it took a little bit of on pour part to get them to help out but in the end they fixed it labor and all. Around a grand to fix. Good luck.
Go to www.agoraquest.com that website has a lot of information that might be very helpful.

SOURCE: projection sony tv is yellow
Most likely it is the Optical Block. It has been a issue for most of the Sony LCD Rear Projections manufactured over the last 6 plus years. Your Model may still Qualify as a factory recall. What you need to do is to get in touch with Sony's Customer Service at 1800-222-SONY and see if it does Qualify.
If not, it is a expensive repair costing 1200.00 to a 1500.00.
I hope it still does Qualify for a recall,

The problem is the optical block and nothing else but. Contact the dealer from which you purchased the set to see if you qualify for Sony's extended warranty on this very, very expensive part, which may be covered by a class action lawsuit Check here http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=367&mdl=KDS60A2020 The lawsuit covers all the KDS models. It seems that Sony continued making these rear projections even though it knew the optical block failed prematurely. When you get it fixed, go to setup and make sure the cooling fan is on HIGH and power saving is ON. Both of those features will extend your TV's life, including the optical block and the projection lamp. Further, bring a portable compressed air tank to the TV and, with a narrow nozzle, empty it into every opening in the set's back. At least once per month, check for dust settling on the rear of the stand behind the TV -- when it gets thick, get the air tank.
