I have the same problem just called Sony and they have extended the warranty to fix the color problem until June 2009. They have a tech coming out.

Call Sony Tech support at 866-850-8674. This may be a light engine problem which is covered under an extended warranty until October 31, 2008, regardless of purchase date. I did the same today for the same problem. Good luck,

We also have a greenish tint. We put a new bulb in because the box that said bulb needed replacing came up. We reset the tv but its still green. we have tried to adjust colors, temperature adjustment and...

Your "light engine has possibly gone down on you, did you replace just the bulb it's self or the complete bulb assembly? If you pulled out light assembly and replace just the bulb then repalce light assembly, if you repalced the whole light socket assembly and still have greenish color the you have a "light engine problem". Seek repair tech.

Yeah, I had mine checked for the same thing. The "blue" - There's only three - red yellow blue- portion of your tube died. Not repairable. Last I checked it costs at least $1,000 for a new 40 inch tube. Good luck. Mine went to the garbage dump!
