The picture is formed from three lamps in the base of the TV. These lamps have a fluid filled lens on each of them and the Glycol in this fluid degrades after time. This fluid can also have a mold or algae growing in it. Check the lamps visually first BUT DON'T touch the driver circuits ( this would be very bad for you) with them turned on and off. If you need to change the fluid, be very careful as leaks happen very easily. If you get any of this fluid onto the driver board it will damage the tracks etc VERY QUICKLY. You must replace the fluid with the correct fluid at the correct level and amount and wash your hands afterwards as Glycol is a poison. I do not think that this is an electronic fault as the orange tinting leads me towards a fluid issue.
