Green images!

Camera - Sony PD170p
Hi I have suddenly started getting images that are just green in colour. This shows up whether or not there is a tape in the camera or if I upload to final cut pro. I have gone through the manual and looked at all the menus but cannot restore it.
Any ideas please

Sony's Green image

This is a common problem with this and other similar Sony cameras - motherboard or something. I had mine repaired at no cost. Contact Sony repair and they will direct you.
