Mitsubishi VS50605, year 2000 green tinted picture
A few months ago I purchased this TV off of craigslist.com from the original owner. It has been working great until this week. The picture now flickers between green and normal. That is, it will be fine, and then green tinted for a few seconds, than back to fine. Eventually, it will stay constantly green tinted. It doesn't matter which input is used and doesn't appear to be correlated to the length of time that the TV is on or off. Any suggestions? How much might this cost to be diagnosed (San Francisco bay area)? How much to be repaired? Is this something I could possibly replace myself? I'm a mechanical engineer and would be more than happy to tinker with it myself. Thanks!

CHECK Q2A13 PART # 260P533010 ON THE RGB PCBOARD. ALSO CHECK Q6G02 PART # 260P696010 ON THE GREEN CRT.PC BOARD
IT COULD ALSO BE SOLDER RELATED ON THE GREEN CRT PC BOARD. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED ANYTHING FURTHER.

The power supply caps in the light engine power supply were faulty when they were installed. You need to remove the power supply and take it to your local electronics shop where they can remove the (7) faulty 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors and insert new ones. If you remove the power supply yourself (takes only a philips screwdriver) and reinstall it yourself, the electronics shop shouldn't charge you for more than an hour worth of time. The caps would be about $10. Here's a photograph (thanks Don Crawford).
My Sony KDS 50 A2000 is 17 months old. Its the 50 Inch SXRD projection model. About two weeks ago the screen developed a green tint with cannot be tuned out, then a few days later the message began to appear on the screen that the bulb was nearing the end of its life and must be replaced. Fortunately I have the Circuit City extended warranty. I called and within just a few days a serviceman came out and replaced the projection bulb. The Result: No change in the picture, the green tint remains on all channels, so I'm awating the next service call. Under the service warranty they have the option to repair or replace this set. If indeed this is the light engine (optical block) which I suspect and its going to cost $1,000 or more I may be looking at a new set. When it works this is a great TV, but I have had three Sonys now including two other standard CRT models and now this one joins them in the junk heap, the other two also bit the dust after just about two years. Is it time to give up on Sony? I know they have a class action suit on a similar model for this same problem. Caveat emptor
There is a crt drive problem and you can isolate it by unpluggin g the set, removing the green crt socket, in the middle of the three tubes is the green tube by the way, remove one of the other tubes and switching the crt sockets and turn it on. If the set is still greenish, then the green crt is bad and needs replacement, if another color is primart, then it is going to be the green crt drive circuit and is going to need to be serviced. Good Luck
