Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV
Our picture gives everything a green tint. I have tried to make video adjustments but nothing seems to make a difference.
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.

Its another instance of the optical block (light engine) failure these TVs are known for. Heat from the lamp has damaged the LCD panels in the light engine. Sony has been directed by the attorney general's office in New York to warranty these TVs going back 4 model years. Call Sony at: 1-800-222-SONY for assistance.

I had the same problem on 09-10-07. Everything was turning or looked green. I called Circuit City for a warrenty repair. The Tech. told me it was a circuit color board and the blue had burnt out. The Tech. ordered the circuit board and replaced it. My TV worked fine after that.
