If some area of the screen even with the color set at zero is green go to an unused video input and look---this model is well known for red green or blue discoloration of what appears to to be the screen but is actually the optical light engine which projects the picture into a mirror which projects it on the screen.

attached is a typical light engine, note the round lens to the left , that is the optical unit that projects the picture into the mirror at the rear of the set which puts it on the screen----the engine is the most expensive part in the set so, .........

SOURCE: Sony KDS-50A2000 screen is in green tint

My Sony KDS 50 A2000 is 17 months old. Its the 50 Inch SXRD projection model. About two weeks ago the screen developed a green tint with cannot be tuned out, then a few days later the message began to appear on the screen that the bulb was nearing the end of its life and must be replaced.
Fortunately I have the Circuit City extended warranty.
I called and within just a few days a serviceman came out and replaced the projection bulb.
The Result: No change in the picture, the green tint remains on all channels, so I'm awating the next service call. Under the service warranty they have the option to repair or replace this set. If indeed this is the light engine (optical block) which I suspect and its going to cost $1,000 or more I may be looking at a new set.
When it works this is a great TV, but I have had three Sonys now including two other standard CRT models and now this one joins them in the junk heap, the other two also bit the dust after just about two years. Is it time to give up on Sony?
I know they have a class action suit on a similar model for this same problem. Caveat emptor

SOURCE: blue dots center and yellow stain right hand corner on 60'' sonytv

Yes, I do. It needs a new light engine. Very costly repair. However, Sony has extended the warranty on many of these LED projector sets. You need to call a local Sony authorized service center and see if your model is covered. Otherwise this repair could run over a thousand bucks.

A blue ink stain at the bottom of the screen


If I'm not mistaken this is a DLP rear screen TV. The only thing I can think of is that there is a large piece of dust on the lens.

SONY HD TV 60"


It honestly depends on what type of TV. If it's a sony 60" it has to be a rear projection model, if it was bought recently or in the last few years it would be a LCD rear projection model. Repair is not impossible nor out of the question. If the green spot is a color stain burned on the screen it's replaceable. However, the cost of a new screen and with installation can be pretty high. Even if it's the LCD projector it's still repairable. Cost could be around 700-1000 dollars. If thats considered to expensive to repair then the answer is yes. Even if the TV did cost more than that you can find some awesome deals on new DLP TV's not to far off from that price range.
