Green tint on screen especially with dvds. picture also cuts out for a few minutes every hour or so on our sony kds-50a2020

Usually in this set if screen gradually changes to something other than black and white the optical light engine is the problem---major part.

Google the model number with "problems" or "light engine" to learn more.

Green cast to colors on sony KDS-50A2020

Hey there,

If you cannot fix this using the on-screen menu system (to adjust hue, etc), then this is a more serious problem.

It could either be that the lens has become distorted or in some other way altered.
Or it's time to replace the lamp.

I suggest speaking with the manufacturer or to someone where you purchased the tv, or to someone from a tv repair shop.

Good luck with you tv!

Sony KDS 50a2020. Tv Seems to Dull. not a setting.

Two possibilities:

1. The lamp. When did you last replace it? They will dim over time and lose focus, clarity, brightness and sharpness. If it has been 18-24 months, and this is your main tv, consider replacing it.

It's a F-9308-860-0. They go for about $175.00.

2. Let's say you follow my advice, put in a new lamp and the picture is still dim, dark, dingy and fuzzy? Then you, my friend, need a new Optic Assembly. The thing your lamp shines into and the thing that gives you a picture to look at. They can fail or wear out for all sorts of reasons--too many for me to type out now. But, suffice to say, if you have recently replaced the lamp (less than 6 months) and are experiencing a drop in brightness, consider getting on the phone with Sony. Even if you are out of warranty, your set is covered against Optic failure until June 30, 2010.

Hope this helps.
