Sony kdf-e42a10 42in LCD WEGA green screen

TV turns to a green screen after watching TV (digital Tivo). It's as if the all the other colors disappear and green is only there. images are still visible but only with green color. Also, when cable is turned off, there is green snow on the screen.

Colors return after turning the TV off for a few minutes until the motor shuts off and then turning it back on. The green color returns after a few minutes though.

TV shows a large white square upon turning on, almost as large as the screen. Nothing else will happen.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Different color vertical lines on screen Sony KDF-E55A20

Go to the last page of troubleshooting in the manual and perform the system reset procedure. Basically hold the Wega "arrow up" as you manually switch the TV off. It will automatically switch back on and reset. I had only vertical colored lines on the screen, with audio but no response to any remote control functions. The rest worked perfectly.

Some of these models have this problem from production.
I would recommend to contact SONY and tell them the problem they may be able to fix your TV at no cost, since some of their Light engines have a recall but I'm not sure if your model number is one of those.

If you want to fix the TV yourself you need to replace the light engine and that requires advanced skills for this product

hope that was helpful
thank you
