Colour problem with my Sony KV-X2931S 29

The colour of my Sony 29" colour TV occasionally changes to black & white and colour after it's turned on a couple of hours. There is no problem with the sound or reception. I've a copy of the service manual but don't know where to start. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Colour bleed

If it is in one of the corners it is a magnetic interferece problem. Most '90s and later sony tvs have a built in degaussing. Turn the tv off and turn in back on and it will degauss. If you have speakers too close move them away. If you have the tv on and move the speaker away you can see the effect.
