Re: Resetting lamp hours

You will need to enter the service menu to do this. However if you were to push the wrong button on the remote you could really mess up the tv. So I suggest you call Sony and see if you can get an ASC to do it for you for a minor charge. There are literally hundreds of electrical adjustments in this service menu. I would adcise an asc do this for you.

My tv turning green all of sudden Is there a way to reset it back to it orginal colors

If tv is Sony KDS-R60XBR1 as shown in question headings then it is problem of optic block (light engine) that needs to be replaced, it is hardware problem that wont get solved by resetting. Optic block is expensive part and qualified tv tech is required to replace it.
If tv model number is different, please post it to provide you info about problem.

The lamp may be starting to go, the symptoms you describe are classic warning signs. You could unplug tv let it cool down and check lamp most likely the glass will not look clear maybe a little milky or smoky in areas..dead give away.
