First thing is to determine what type of video connection you are using to watch TV. If you use componet video cables to watch tv check teh green cable to make sure its connected also check the red and blue because if the green come off the picture will appear B&W
I've seen a similar looking problem and it is a bad LCD panel. It will show even on a non-used input, and will show through the menu screen and the screen saver, also. Sharp's LCD panels are very expensive,too. Over 4000 at encompassparts.
If you can see the red tint with every input source and also in the On-Screen Menu, then this indicates that the Green phosphor is burning off of the screen faster than the Red and Blue. This is typical of plasma screens. Even if you dont watch a lot of golf or football, green is the most dominent color and burns out of the phosphur pits(pixels) faster than the Red and Blue. Take away green, you are left with Reddish looking screen and Pink whites. This is not repairable. If the Menu looks nice and white, check your source cables. Good luck
I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.
Are you using component cables (red/green/blue)? Check your connections to see that they are all seated properly. When using component cables, if only the green is plugged in, it will give you a black and white picture. You will get color once you plug in the red and blue.
What kind of sources are you using? what kind of cables are you using? Need these kinds of specifics to ehlp you out.
It sounds like you have tried changing imputs " usually the issue". The next step is to see if it is still under warranty and get an estimate of how much it will cost to fix. Invest in a good surge protector.
