I believe you have lost the green channel leaving only the red and blue. It could be an internal connection like a solder joint or connector, or it could be component failure from the CRT to an adjustment pot. Being the set is ten years old it wouldn't be worth spending a lot of money on it. You can buy a 27 inch TV now for almost what a repair would cost. If the picture was very good before this probem you may try to get it fixed cheap. Otherwise it probably wouldn't be worth it.
My 27 inch TV's (A Sony and a Sharp) are pretty old and I would fix them myself if the picture tube was very good.
This may be a very good time to buy considering the discounts being offered. ;-)).

Green picture only


The projection TV has 3 guns RED GREEN BLUE. In your case the red and the blue guns are gone. So you are getting the green color screen. You got to replace the picture tube.

Color issues in the lower right corner


Unplug the set overnight and plug back in and turn the set on . If the spot goes away alittle then do this again. Up to three days > if that dosent fix the problem then you have a problem in the deguissing coil curcuit. Probably a cod joint on the thermister or a bad relay , a bad coil . Not a big deal repair. Good luck
