Red color is missing - everything is green

You will need the optical block replaced. Approximately $1000 or so plus around $400 labor and taxes. Visit Sony's website to see if they are still honoring the extended warranty for the optical block issue. They know it as a green tint complaint. The menus will also be affected if you have the problem.

If the issue is no longer covered, try negotiating a shared cost repair.

Sont Projection Tv colors


Your red tube is weak or defective. If weak, gain can be adjusted up on the red tube.(cheapest cost) If red tube circuit is defective that will have to be fixed by a technician.(cost between $100 to $200) If tube is worn out, it will have to be replaced(250 to 500). Any work should be done by a qualified tech. Prices will vary depending on your area.
If set is over 5 years old, I recommend replacement.

Blue colors are bright green


This model did have problems with : missing color (red,green or blue) and other issues like inverted picture-----it may need the main cpu reprogrammed which is done with a jig and two sd cards loaded into the set that way.

There's a green hue over everything


One of your other color tubes( blue or red ), is blown. The green saturation you are seeing is beacuse you are missing a color to complete the picture. Rear projection t.v.'s are pretty cheap to fix with this problem. Just contact a t.v. repairman.

Blurry and colors are seperated red green white


if you are viewing from a projection tv, chances are you have to go thru the menu of the tv to 'picture tuning'. here it gives you different things that could be fixed. one to look for is 'lamp alignment'. It should show all the colors and lines with directions to bring them into focus. This should fix the blurriness and 3-d red/green/white separations. hope this helps you!

Dark picture


use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
