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)

It now has a green tint -- will replacing the lamp solve that?


I have the same problem. I'm pretty sure the lamp will not take the green tint away, for the green comes from a problem with the optical block.

Green hue/tint


Need to do the alignment feature where it refocuses the light beams. Convergance. Look through the set up. Different magnetism and shaking of the set has thrown it off most likely. Auto focus maybe what its called.

We are noticing a green tint on our Sony KDS-R50XBR1


You have what is referred to as the "Green Blob". Sony messed up bad with the Optical Light Engine. They didnt realize until months after releasing the model you and I have they had a huge problem. So they figured not all Engines were bad. So technically, they havent recalled. I went through several months of talking with Sony and my warranty. You will need to call a tech and have them check to make sure. My tech knew what it was by me telling him over the phone. Hes worked on a more than he cared to say. Sony will play games. They will want a considerable deposit put down before sending the new Engine. And if thats not the problem...they keep your money!!!AAAAHHHHH!!!!I feel for you. I pray you have better service than me. Its been a year since. so maybe they are better. God Bless!!

Green tint on Siny 50" DLP


Most likely a defective Light Engine Assembly. They normally cost about $800.00, or in that area.

Can not adjust the color, color is geen


Try right-clicking on your desktop. That will bring up the Display properties. Click on the tab that allows you to set the colors. Set it to the highest amount possible. Reboot and your colors should be fine.
