Most but not all of these sets have a reset---with set off and Sony remote hit display, 5, volume up, and POWER.

Set should come on in the tech menu---hit 8 on the remote and you should see the word RESET IN RED, then hit enter to complete the reset.

If the green band was there before it may be a optical light engine bad, these sets are well known for this.

Call Sony, there is a recall on the Light Engine in these units and it will be replaced for free. Sony will cover all costs. I had mine done for the same reason.

SOURCE: Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52

I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

Press Menu, Video Custom Settings, adjust Hue to reduce green tone, if that does not solve your problem, go to Advance Video Settings Menu, White Balance, adjust white balance by tweaking R, G, B gain/ bias settings or hit Initial set for factory default settings.

Cmon, read your manual, it specifically mentions 3 lights...

Means your lamp cover or lamp isn't secure...

Remove the lamp and insert it until you hear it lock into place and screw the lamp cover door tight...

No video or audio for Sony KDS-R50XBR1


http://esupport.sony.com/sxrdsettlement

Otherwise there is a full recall on all 50XBR1's and 60XBR1's for ANY video issue.
But the bullentin I do have on that is Confidential due to the amount of claims SONY could recieve. But here is a sample of the bulletin.

Models: KDSR50XBR1, KDSR60XBR1

Subject: Optical Block: Warranty Policy and Part matrix by serial number.

Resolution: As part of Sony’s commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that it is extending the limited warranty (parts and labor) for optical block replacements on the models listed above until October 31, 2008, regardless of purchase date. Authorized servicers should follow the normal process for warranty claims for this issue.
