Now the problem has gotten worse. The green tint on the tv screen starts to fade light then dark in color. Then the whole screen turns green in color. After that the tv power's off and the light flashes eight times. I was wondering where I should go from here. My tv is 5 1/2 yrs old. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Started with green arch lines on the screen
If your TV is a CRT type, then most likley the CRT guns need replacing. If an LCd, then the convergence modules will have to be replaced. it is also possible that you may have a couple faulty resistor/s and/or capacitor/s.
My advice would be to seek the assistance of a TV repairman, as this is not very simple to do if you have no prior experience. Also, it is very difficult to say what exactly is wrong without doing a manual inspection.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.
Hmm my dad's old t.v. just cut out on him it took awile to turn on this my be the end of ur tv so this might be a power problem but older t.v. loose there colour on the screen my uncle had a like 10-15 year old t.v the screen was like green when it was light but when u turned of the light or closed the blind's it's picture was ok so try that.
Ur convergence it dead.Do u know how to solders? Tries these websites. Tv repair World.com or Tvrepairkits.com have it.Buy a convergence kit used what in that kit ur tv well get back to normal.The shop will cost u $300 for parts and labors.
if the option for convergence is still listed under the setting section of the on screen menu, then you need a convergence power supply board. If the convergence option is missing from the menu you need the ITC222 convergence missing repair kit. You can get either one at the following link they include instructions for the repair. http://www.tvrepairworld.com/
First you can up the screen voltage, by finding the HV transformer. It has Screen and Focus control on it this it the Transformer that is in back of set and has an anode lead going to Picture tube. Come up on the screen control slowly and if the picture brightens with vertical lines then it's too high, The red problem is a small transistor that maybe located on the CRT board. It's probably shorted. There are about 3, each going to the different colors Red, Blue, Green.
sounds like bad CRT, some of these sonys have had defective CRT issues, usually all will come and go sooner or later (all 3 bad), you can pull the speaker grill off(either 2 1/4" screws on bottom or 6 1/4" on back sides) and pull off the Crt box cover (2'X3' piece) and lightly tap the CRT's with tv on, if they flare or get colored streaks in pix they are bad, CALL SONY 800 # and complain, also could adjust G2 (Screen control for color) for short patch. Will need new crts.
