    High grren content. When watching a black & white movie, it's green and yellow. Cannot adjust the color to fix the problem. Will having the optical block fixed by Sony work?

You have a bad optical block. Sony is covering the optical block replacement under warranty, so you will not have to pay anything for the repair. Contact Sony customer service at 800-222-7669 to arrange to have your set serviced.

Why is my printer printing out only green on my photos?


Check your printer cartridge. Ideally, there will be one for black and three for the colors; however, some printers only have 1 for color. If that's the case, then probably all the color ink except for green is gone from the printer cartridge. If so, you are going to need to buy a new color ink cartridge.

I have a sony wega and the picyure is clear but has a green tint what could that be


There are several possibilities in that area. The Picture Tube (CRT) is driven by three different video signals. One presents the Red, one the Blue and one Green. All other colors are derived from a mixture of those three colors. The greenish tint could be a sign that the green gun is being over driven or the Red and the Blue are less than adequate to create a normal picture. Sorry to say this but the most common problem that causes that symptom is the emission in the "gun" assembly inside the picture tube is declining with age and hours of operation. Sony Picture tubes are typically good for around 40,000 hours of use. I don't recommend replacing the picture tube. If the set is more than 5 years old I would suggest that you start looking for a new set.

I know this is bad news but I am just telling what I know the most likely scenario that I have seen in 35 years of TV service.

My tv sceen has a stain that makes anything white look yellow.


The color image is comprised of three colors, Red, Green, and Blue.
All the other colors are mixtures of those colors. The yellow picture indicates that your set is lacking sufficient blue drive.

First of all check to make sure that the tint control is not misadjusted.
The next thing is dependent upon the age of your television. If it's an older set that yellow tint is a sign of an aging picture tube.
If it's a newer set, less than 5 years old, have it analyzed by a electronics technician that is familiar with televisions if he is skilled enough he will know right away if it's the picture tube or not.

My 48 inch jvc tv has a green color to it what can this be and how can i get it fixed


Okay so the green color that you see on the screen is because the coolant inside of the green picture tube is gone bad (it suppose to be cristal clear but now it is brownish and that makes the green color run all over the screen.) That just happens over time and I'm guessing the picture tubes have never been serviced. Now you got two choices
1- The easiest and fastest way would be to take it to a local repair shop and have them service the coolants of your picture tubes. I'm guessing it would run you about $165 or so to get them done (the three of them red,green and blue)
2-On the other hand you can do it yourself. It is not hard at all but it does require a lot of attention.

After the picture tubes have been serviced you'll notice the big difference.
You'll actually have a much brighter and sharper picture just like when it was new.

Let me know if you decide you want to do it yourself so i can post the instructions for you.

My picture has a green and blue hue to it.


After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)

Green tint


Is the green color on displays as well. (Displays means the video generated by changing the volume or activating menu-and seeing if this is green as well. Secondly, turn the color all the way down to zero. Do you see a "normal" black and white picture? If you do, then the picture tubes are not the problem and you have a failure in the color processing area. Let me know....

WEGA 36" : Screen is low contrast and green


Sorry to say, it sounds like a bad picture tube, But could be also the capacitor that filters the screen voltage on the crt drivers. In all my years though, your complaint has been the picture tube. Good Luck.
