I am going to guess that model number is actually KP-65ws500This is one of group of Sony sets that had bad picture tubes---red, green, blue----the tubes are no longer available and can only be obtained by removing the bad one and sending it out for rebuild (very expensive)There is one easy thing you may be able to do to correct this problem---It involves no replacement of parts and is just adjusting the Green screen control---usually if this is the case when set comes on background will be somewhat (in your case) green---best way to see this is turn set on and have it on a unused video input---if screen appears somewhat green and has curved retrace lines--you may be able to turn the Green screen control down and continue to use the set---set will shut down if any of the 3 picture tubes pulls too much current--ie--goes to bright green, red or blue.Let me know if you want to know how to attempt thisSD TECH
