    I have a Sony DLP (KDS-50A2000) and began noticing a similar yellow-greenish tint that is uniform across the whole screen; however, not on all images. I don't know if this is a pattern; however, the tint effect is most predominant with what are suppose to be off-white colors and maybe tan colors (like human faces). It's becoming annoying. I sthis normal, or should I contact a tv repair

    I have the same problem with the greenish tint on my TV. Please let us know if the color/light engine you have on order fixes the problem. Luckily my problem has not gotten worse and it's been there for 4+ years.

I have been advised that the color/light engine of the TV fails often and will typically create a green tint on this unit. I have one on order to get a replacement installed. BTW, it is not "user serviceable" and (for me) will require moving the TV to the repair shop for the change-out.

I would bet that it is your optical block. Often when these go out, you get a yellow or green tint to everything.

I replaced the lamp on my Sony KF-60XBR800. Now the picture is greenish and yellowish. I was told I might have touched/moved the purity ring/s. Where are they located?

Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

50 in sony rear projection tv screen has yellowish or greenish tint in center 1/3 of screen

OMG. If it is a rear projection LCD then you have a bad light engine. Any good repair shop will repair for $200-250.
If its an older 3 tube projection then you have contaminated coolant in one or 2 of the picture tubes. Just drain out the fluid and replace with new. Should be able to do in 15 minutes. total cost $45.
