Everybody can do it, it might be a bit tricky because sometimes hard to access.
Unplug your TV’s power cord from the electrical outlet and disconnect any peripheral devices like a DVD player or cable box.
Remove the screws that connect the back shell to the rest of the TV. Then pull the shell up and off the TV carefully. Set it aside.
Most screens can be cleaned with a damp, micro fiber cloth. The key word here is "damp", not dripping. Excess liquid can cause permanent damage. NO Windex or so
Gently wipe the screen with the damp cloth to clean. When you there wipe the top of the bulb too... good luck and be GENTLE.

Phillips 51pw936317f picture not as sharp as when new


Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc.

You may even see halos around images.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

5 times blinks is error code for No Good White Balance and you said that picture is very green.
As you know TV is approx 7 years old so it needs RGB gain adjustments.
If you are TV tech person or know about TV repair, let me know to guide you further. Or contact local TV repair shop to fix it.
