    I have the same problem and I utilized this issue and called Sony and they are to send an authorized repairman out. If they determine this is under the service alert warranty sony will cover the cost. I am wondering if the individual that originally submitted this question had any outcome on his issue?

    I have the 60" version (KDS-R60). Everything has a green tint. I replaced the bulb, and have tried to adjust everything that can be adjusted. Need some guidance.

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.

I have a sony KDS-60A2020 that shows a green tint and can't be adjusted


Hi,

There are 2 common causes of a Green Tinted Picture in Sony 60A2020 and other Sony LCD Rear Projection TVs:

  • HD cables from cable box or other source faulty or not tightly connected.
  • Optical Engine Failure.
    This link shows what some Sony Optical Engine Faults look like.

Green tint on sony kds-r5xbr1 rear projection tv. picture in hd is still great looking just green.


What media device are you using and how is it connected?
If its an external device (that is your not using a built in blu ray player or such) and your using compost video (it should be three wires for video, blue, green, and red) check the red wire on both ends. Most of the time this is the problem.
If your using a HDMI cable, or the above does not fix the problem, try replacing the cable.

If its only a slight tinting there should be a setting on your tv for fixing it. (Usualy named Tint)

Picture has a green tint no matter how much you try to adjust out the green or add red.


You are probably on component input RED GREEN BLUE and the red has come loose at either the back of the tv or the source. If it is not loose, try inputting it into another input source. If that doesn't fix it, try new cables.
