Generally Tv screens use three different colours to make the picture, and if one or two of these colours don't show you will see the picture but in specially one colour (like looking through a red filter in your case). If you are using an input into the TV (DVR or Games console etc) then I would firstly move the cable around in the back of the TV and the console to see if anything changes or flickers in and out of being correct. If this does happen I would recommend buying a new cable to fulfil the purpose. If this does not happen and you are still seeing red then there may be an issue with the connection inside the back of your TV, this shouldn't be a very expensive issue to fix as you are still getting a picture but I would recommend getting a specialist to check it out if you are not confident in fixing this manually. Thirdly and most unlikely is the settings inside the TV have changed, some TV's like yours will allow you to change colour settings on the screen. I would go into the menu and find the section that allows you to change the colours and have a check to see if any of the settings seem off.
This is a picture tube type TV. No lamp. You don't describe the distortion. A colour green picture that is twisted and shifted away from the other colours is a convergence problem. see Projection TV Convergence on this site. If the green is smeared, out of focus, larger than the other colours like a halo around objects, things like that, it is the green picture tube. Sony has discontinued most of the picture tubes so you may not be able to get this fixed.
Your Picture has acquired damage that has caused the colours to leak and not blend together. Call the TV Technician immediately if you don't want to make it worse. I suggest you don't put on the TV for very long time till its fixed. Not more than one hour each time
