It sounds like the red cable on your component input is bad, one way to check this is press menu and see if the menu bars and letters are the right color. if they are then you may have a cable issue, if they are bad you may have a bad DG board in the unit. This will probably require a service technician. Hope this helps

The greenish hue cannot be adjusted from the menu. One has to do it from inside.First confirm by turning the color settings to zero using the remote. You should get a clean black and white image with no traces of any color ( inc: green ). If your TV is greenish , the green drive on the base of the picture tube has to be trimmed. All you need is a screwdriver. There are dangerous voltages inside a TV, some as high as 27,000 volts !!!. Where the color adjustment has to be done there are voltages as high as 110 volts and 8000 volts.If you still want to make the adjustments yourself revert back for instructions
There are several possibilities in that area. The Picture Tube (CRT) is driven by three different video signals. One presents the Red, one the Blue and one Green. All other colors are derived from a mixture of those three colors. The greenish tint could be a sign that the green gun is being over driven or the Red and the Blue are less than adequate to create a normal picture. Sorry to say this but the most common problem that causes that symptom is the emission in the "gun" assembly inside the picture tube is declining with age and hours of operation. Sony Picture tubes are typically good for around 40,000 hours of use. I don't recommend replacing the picture tube. If the set is more than 5 years old I would suggest that you start looking for a new set.
I know this is bad news but I am just telling what I know the most likely scenario that I have seen in 35 years of TV service.
Have you tried more than 1 source? If this only happens with 1 source- if you're using component cables (green, blue, red) then make sure there is nothing wrong with it. Another thing that can cause this, is a component (RGB) device being plugged into a composite a/v input (yellow white and red).
If this fails, or if the problem is with all sources, the TV is the problem and probably won't be easy to diagnose or repair yourself.. I'd call the manufacturer if this is the case.
You can set these controls to your liking, though a lower brightness setting might increase the life of the screen. First, set the brightness and contrast to a level that is pleasing to the eyes, then adjust the color to look realistic - enough color without being disturbing. If faces area look greenish or purplish, then also adjust the tint (sometimes called Hue) until you get accurate flesh tone. Flesh tone is the best thing to adjust for; when you get good flesh tone, the rest of the picture will look great. ALWAYS make adjustments during a live news broadcast, which tends to have the most accurate balance of brightness, contrast, color level and hue. Note that commercials are all recorded in different studios with different settings, and will usually not look right - it's best to just live with this than to constantly readjust the TV. There are also DVD's available which walk you through proper TV adjustment.

Unfortunately this model has a bad CRT. If is 3-4 years old and the greenish picture is in all inputs, for sure the picture tube is gone. If the picture is green only in component input check the connections for the blue and red cables.
if you have access to another monitor use if to verify the monitor is the problem and not the video card of the computer.
does the monitor allow you to adjust color and tint(hue) because the tint or hue control changes the overall color from green to purple. or the color control circuit has failed leaving you stuc with a purple screen.
