My sony kds-50a2000 picture is green why? I replaced projection lamp the picture was great but now the picture is terrible everthing seems to have a yellow tinge to it and green seems to be dominant...

The problem is the optical block and nothing else but. Contact the dealer from which you purchased the set to see if you qualify for Sony's extended warranty on this very, very expensive part, which may be covered by a class action lawsuit Check here The lawsuit covers all the KDS models. It seems that Sony continued making these rear projections even though it knew the optical block failed prematurely. When you get it fixed, go to setup and make sure the cooling fan is on HIGH and power saving is ON. Both of those features will extend your TV's life, including the optical block and the projection lamp. Further, bring a portable compressed air tank to the TV and, with a narrow nozzle, empty it into every opening in the set's back. At least once per month, check for dust settling on the rear of the stand behind the TV -- when it gets thick, get the air tank.
