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.

Your set uses red, blue, and green lcd panels to produce your colors. The lamp provides the illumination. What has happened is the blue lcd panel has been damaged in the area you are seeing the yellow. The fix for this is to have the optical block (also known as the engine) replaced. This is a very expensive part,... you may want to move on to a flat panel tv.
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...
EVERYONE CALL SONY- SONY HAS EXTENDED ALL OF OUR WARRANTIES. i have
this same problem with my 60" wega. i called sony and they explained to
me that the problem was the optical light box. it cost a grip to fix
even for them...so instead of fixing the problem they offered me the
best true flats they had at way less than the actually price. i bought
a 46" bravia for less than 550 including tax. i still have my 60" but
until i get it fixed on my own this 46" will definitely do. i hope this
helps you all
