    I have a green tint as well.  When I turn my screen to black and white, it still looks bad.  When I use my remote, the volume and channel views also have a green tint to it.  What could this be?  Will it be expensive to repair?

Is the green color on displays as well. (Displays means the video generated by changing the volume or activating menu-and seeing if this is green as well. Secondly, turn the color all the way down to zero. Do you see a "normal" black and white picture? If you do, then the picture tubes are not the problem and you have a failure in the color processing area. Let me know....

    Thanks for the reply. It looks like you have bad components in the picture tube drive circuitry. At this point, you probably have to call a technician in your area. It would be very rare to have a bad picture tube with a set so new.

Green tint on sony kds-r5xbr1 rear projection tv. picture in hd is still great looking just green.


What media device are you using and how is it connected?
If its an external device (that is your not using a built in blu ray player or such) and your using compost video (it should be three wires for video, blue, green, and red) check the red wire on both ends. Most of the time this is the problem.
If your using a HDMI cable, or the above does not fix the problem, try replacing the cable.

If its only a slight tinting there should be a setting on your tv for fixing it. (Usualy named Tint)

Color went bad. Has a yellow/green tint to


This seems like a convergence issue and will need to be serviced.

There might be a chance of repairing the old convergence board but you will need to have the Tv looked at to determine what part on the convergence went bad.

Rear projection HD Hitachi Ultravision always has greenish tint


This is what you're going to do, Turn on the Tv and go to the service manual, if the green tint is still there, you have a defective dmd board, but if it's no there, then you have an issue with your video board

50V715 HITACHI -GREENISH TINT -


Solution for the Hitachi 50V715. I contacted Hitachi and they told me there is a problem with the color engine with this and other Hitachi models. They will replace the part for free, but first I need to take it to a repair shop to verify the problem and I have to pay labor. Not too bad considering the cost of the engine.

Sony KDS-50A2000 screen is in green tint


My Sony KDS 50 A2000 is 17 months old. Its the 50 Inch SXRD projection model. About two weeks ago the screen developed a green tint with cannot be tuned out, then a few days later the message began to appear on the screen that the bulb was nearing the end of its life and must be replaced.
Fortunately I have the Circuit City extended warranty.
I called and within just a few days a serviceman came out and replaced the projection bulb.
The Result: No change in the picture, the green tint remains on all channels, so I'm awating the next service call. Under the service warranty they have the option to repair or replace this set. If indeed this is the light engine (optical block) which I suspect and its going to cost $1,000 or more I may be looking at a new set.
When it works this is a great TV, but I have had three Sonys now including two other standard CRT models and now this one joins them in the junk heap, the other two also bit the dust after just about two years. Is it time to give up on Sony?
I know they have a class action suit on a similar model for this same problem. Caveat emptor

Blue wide streaks in my 42" Sony TV model KDFE42A10.


I have the same TV and the same problem and it's also just over 2 years old (bought it June 2006) when the problem started. Every day, I saw the blue streak cover more of the tv, now 6 months later, it has all turned to green and the entire tv has a green tint. It looks like I am watching tv in murky green water.
I am lucky that I purchased the additional warranty on the tv and finally got around to calling them. I hate to tell you this, but they told me that the optical light has gone up and they are replacing the tv.

Red picture cannot adust with convergence


You have bad CRT Fluid, the green and Blue tube need the fluid changed. This is a messy and possibly dangerous to the tv proposition, you will want to call someone to change the fluid, you will probably spend $450+ for the repair, but it should look pretty good when done, possibly better than it has looked in years.
