It appears that both of you were using the lamp timer reset procedure for the wrong Sony TV models (WE, WF655, XS955, and A20). You should have used the procedure for the XBR1. I have a page on my Sony LCD Rear Projection TV Problems
web site that describes the different service menu procedures. It also contains warnings about the possibility of messing up your TV.
When you did the key presses in the service menu that were designed for the other models, you were at a completely different menu item (not lamp reset) for your TV. Then, when you hit the  button, instead of clearing the lamp timer, you incremented whatever other item you were on, and then, by pressing [MUTE][ENTER], you saved that new setting, which apparently turned your screen red.
I am not sure whether there is a global way to return the service menu settings to factory defaults. You may have to pay a technician to restore things. If you really want to try on your own (at the risk of making things even worse), I think you would need to find the same setting you inadvertently changed before and restore it to its original value. Typically, the  button decrements the value, which would reverse what you did previously with the  button, and then you would press [MUTE][ENTER] to save the new setting. Of course, that requires that you know exactly which setting(s) you changed and how much you changed them (e.g., did you only change one setting, and what value did it originally have--did you only hit  a single time?). If you get it wrong, you could change other settings and potentially make things even worse.
Another possibility is that pressing  on a setting restores it to the factory default. Again, I think you would then have to press [MUTE][ENTER] to save it after the change. If you are unsure of which setting you changed and/or what the original value was, perhaps this could work. Perhaps if the  press changes a value, you know it was not previously on a factory default. Again, though, you risk messing up your TV even more. It might work to note any values before changing them, and then if things get worse, change them back.
Good luck.Edited by splinke - 6/27/13 at 12:59pm
