There was a problem with the sony projection tv's that they called a flicker. Do a google search on your TV and flicker or search sony and flicker. There is all kinds of info about a service bulliten that Sony sent out. There were fixing it at no charge but Im not sure if this fix still applies since the tv's are getting older now.

the screen bias needs to be turned down-ehind the front cover which is behind the grille there is a small black square about 3 inch square 6 little knobs sticking out 3 say in small letters screen and 3 say focus, don't adjust the focus just the screen for the coresponding color that shows up when picture is dark.best way to do this is darken the room and put it on video input with no signal if lines are white slowly
adjust 1 color after the other counterclockwise untill
lines disappear if only 1 color shows then only adjust the knob with the matching color. this is a very fine adjustment, to much will make your auto focus stop working. check it after you are done
You can try adjusting the Red color output. (Very touchy adjustment)
you take off the front cover/speaker cover, there should be a access panel. Behind
that, there should be a small square black box with 6 screws on it.
This is the focus block. (At least this is where most of them are
It sounds more like you may need less red in the mix. There is a screw for each color. R, G, and B. Do not
mess with the focus screws, just the ones labeled 'SCREEN.'
Go to an unused input where the screen should be dark. Barely turn the red down in a dark room so that the red spot is at the same level as the Blue and Green.
Use an insulated screwdriver and DO NOT TOUCH the focus block and ESPECIALLY NOT the back of it. Very HIGH VOLTAGE. I found that out the hard way.
Do not turn any of these up too high or damage may occur and the TV may detect a short and shut off.
have found that if the three colors are adjusted in a dark room to
where the 3 color spots (R/G/B) are just barely visible on the screen
at equal levels, there is a pretty good color balance.
sorry but those adjustment are not the right one , to correct the color problem u have frist , u need to hire a tv tech , tv would has to adjust the screen and focus back to normal after that , need to replace the oil on green and blue picture tube
First check what color of faint lines comes then reduce Screen Volts in TV of that CRT (tube) Take off lower front cover, speaker grille of TV, there you will see focus control block that has 6 control knobs, upper 3 knobs are focus adjustment of red-green-blue CRTs and lower 3 knobs are screen volt controls for red-green-blue CRTs. Turn screen volt control knob CCW to reduce screen volts of desired CRT. Put TV on any free AV input so screen will be dark enough to adjust screen volts. Thanks.
Are they thin, white lines running east to west? If so, they are called retrace lines and indicate that the screen settings for the picture tubes is set too high or there may be a mal-function of the CRT driver circuitry. Try adjusting the screen controls which are located behind the front grill of the TV behind an access panel. Once you remove the grill and access panel, you'll see a small control assembly the has two sets of controls. Three for adjusting the red, green, and blue focus, the other, the red, blue, and green screen controls. To adjust correctly, put the TV on an unused input(dark, blank picture) and adjust until there are no visable retrace lines or color in the image.
While looking at your TV, remove the bottom right speaker grill. There you will find a cover held by a couple of screws. Remove the screws and behind the cover you will find the "focus pack" which is a group of 6 adjustment screws. The top screws adjust (in order from left to right) the brightness of Red, Green and Blue.
What you will do preferably at night (or with the room dark) turn the top left adjustment screw (Red) all the way to the left and then gradually turn it to the right until the point you can see the retrace line and then turn it slightly to the left until the retrace line disappears. That's it! You can do this for all three colors - if need be. These do go out of adjustment every now and then. The 3 screws on the bottom are to focus the colors individually to minimize "bloom" on the screen. It's best to be in service mode on your TV when doing this OR open up the cabinet and cover (with something) the other 2 colors while you adjust the focus of the color you're adjusting.
Did you try alignment of color convergence in setting up. Try this
1 Press MENU
2 Select SET UP
3 Select CONVERGENCE
4 Select screen mode ZOOM this accesses the center convergence adjustment.Press set/enter
5 Use arrow keys to aline the red cross to the white cross.Press set/enter
6 Use arrow keys to alingn the blue line in the same manner. Once adjustment is complete press MENU to turn the menu off.
I hope this helps if you cant move the red or blue lines you face the same problem I face. I still havent gotton any solutions to my post about being unable to adjust the red line.You could also call Pioneer's help line 800-421-1404.
It is an adjustment, but it's an adjustment you may not want to do. It's the red screen control. It's located behind the front panel so the entire front panel has to be removed in order to access it-which will expose you to hazardous voltages. if you like, I can post detailed instructions on how to get that front panel off, it's kinda tricky.
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.
