When was the lamp this model uses for brightness last replaced? These as a rule have a 2,000 hour or 2 year average lifespan and many just before they fail will go darker, picture will come up slower and be a bit dim.

SOURCE: Yellow Tint in Lower Right Corner of Sony KDS-R60XBR1 TV Screen

Hello,

What you probably have is a very well known problem with the optical block. As it covers the screen, it will turn everything else greenish/yellow.

The optical block is very commonly replaced and an expensive repair, but the extended warranty (in place for all these TV's regardless of purchase date) on these sets is expired or about to expire. I would urge you to call Sony (1.800.222.SONY) immediately to try to get assistance, and to see if the warranty is up on it.

Hope this helps you...

SOURCE: Resetting lamp hours

You will need to enter the service menu to do this. However if you were to push the wrong button on the remote you could really mess up the tv. So I suggest you call Sony and see if you can get an ASC to do it for you for a minor charge. There are literally hundreds of electrical adjustments in this service menu. I would adcise an asc do this for you.

TV is older and has had a great picture through the years. It has now developed blue vertical lines all the way across the screen every 3/4".


Those are retrace lines from too bright a picture. If you can't get them to go away with the brightness control then a repair is necessary

The tv is on then screen turns off and greenlight will blink understanby and then screen comes on again


If it has a lamp that has not been replaced in a long time it may be that---if it turns on slow and is somewhat dim that points to a lamp that is about to fail---set detects if lamp not full up or bright enough etc.
