Re: sony rear projection

My dad has a sony rear projection tv and had this same problem. A shop had to replace one of the color tubes(?) (green, red, or blue) had to be replaced. The shop said this was common with Sony rear projection TV's.

Tv comes on for 10 seconds then fades to a green tint then turns completely green for a few seconds than turns off

Symptom shows tv got problem with green picture tube that need to be replaced.
Rear projection tv has 3 picture tubes, red-green-blue to make color picture.
Since its an old model so spare parts would hardly be available and local tv repair shop will help you to arrange required part, if they can.

Tv keep jumping at the top. the picture is green

This is likely a problem in a section called the vertical drive. A number of small parts need to be replaced. The green colour is due either to weak red an blue tubes or the green tube is over-driving. You might want to rethink spending any money fixing this...

My tv is showing to much red on screen

I don't have a lot to go on. If this is an older rear projection, this usually means the face of the green picture tube is dark (the picture goes purple-red) or there is too much red tube(excessive drive). This is a technical adjustment as it is in an area containing hazardous voltages. Adjustments will be a stop gap as rear projection TVs are all past their usable life span (About 8 years + with moderate use)

The green is taking over all the color on the tv

I have the same TV which had the same issue ( green in picture ) - back on 10/2007. I called Sony. They had their technician replace the optical box ( factory defect ). There was no charge for the repair even though TV was out of first year of warranty. Call Sony.
