Hi,
If it is Sony KDF-E42A10 model then green tint in picture is problem of optic block (light engine) that needs to be replaced to solve this issue.
Optic block replacement is job of qualified tv tech and novice could damage tv circuit boards while replacement.
If you are handy with electronics stuff repair then should have related service manual copy in hand for any repair attempt.
Hope this will help, let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Hi,
Open rear cover, there are a flat cable from pcb main to pcb t-con on lcd panel.
Unplug that cable and clean it with brush or alcohol.
That happen because that connection is dirty.
Good luck

when it goes green, your green picture tube is shorting out, replaceing the green tube costs alot of money. these sony's had alot of bad tubes, the red and blue are probably going out too, it will cost alot to fix this, at least $500 even if you find good used picture tubes to put in it.
