It honestly depends on what type of TV. If it's a sony 60" it has to be a rear projection model, if it was bought recently or in the last few years it would be a LCD rear projection model. Repair is not impossible nor out of the question. If the green spot is a color stain burned on the screen it's replaceable. However, the cost of a new screen and with installation can be pretty high. Even if it's the LCD projector it's still repairable. Cost could be around 700-1000 dollars. If thats considered to expensive to repair then the answer is yes. Even if the TV did cost more than that you can find some awesome deals on new DLP TV's not to far off from that price range.

To many things that can cause it,
The plasma tube on that spot can be faulty. The Ver and Hor sync part (resistors etc) can be faulty.
Magnetic coils faulty. Only thing you can try yourself is unplug Tv from power socket for at least 12 hours and plug in again, remove any speakers or metal from side of tv. Mag coils initiation might rectify it by itself. If this doesnt work get a TV repair tech
It sounds like the light engine is going bad if you still have a warranty call and get a tech to repair before the warranty runs out. If no warranty it can still be repaired but it can be very expensive. anywhere in the 600 to 1000 range, sometimes better to replace tv depending on costs
Sounds like the optical block (the projector part of TV is failing) The block cannot be repaired it has to be replaced. It can easily cost several hundred dollars to fix. Sony did extend the warranty on some models, you can try going on their website to see if your model is covered or not. good luck!
It sounds like you do not have the red component cable firmly inserted. I had this problem on my first HD TV, when the green component cable popped out when I moved the TV back in place, and the picture was desaturated of any green, causing my wife to remark, "That sure doesn't look like HD..." I reinserted the green component cable, and the picture was excellent. Check those component cables.
This is caused by a inherent defect in the optical block of the TV. This was a common failure and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive( over $1000) and time consuming (need to take apart the whole TV). Sony is aware of this issue but have yet to extend the warranty for this TV. There is a class action pending against Sony because of this failure. You can add your name to the class action lawsuit here: http://www.sonysxrdtvclassaction.com/main/home.sfx
If the set is hooked up using Component cables (red, green, blue), then check to make sure the cables are hooked up correctly, and not defective (change them out). If the color problem remains, then the problem may be in the Optics block of the television (which is not unheard of in this unit).
If the menu of the TV displays blotchy discoloration, and the discoloring is the same for every input on the tv (stationary), then it is the Optics, and the optics need to be changed. It is not the easiest job in the world, and the block itself is quite expensive, although the unit my be under an extended warranty from Sony. Contact them directly to see if you can get any help (cost or service-wise). Hope this helps...
Good Day, dv28;
No, the lamp will not correct this. The TV has a bad light engine, it's very common for this TV and very expensive. Call the manufacture and try to get a concession for the part. They normally give it about 75% of the time.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
