Check vertical output circuits. They control the up and down deflection and when not working you get straight line across front of tube.

My RCA console tv has white horizontal lines accross screen, picture is very light and sound is ok, very frustrating. I know its an old tv, but appreciate any response. Thanks

Cold solder joints on the flyback transformer circuit board - probably because RCA used feed-thru steel rivets on their boards. Re-solder the connections using a good solder flux for clean solder joints and this will fix prob. The joints with the dull, pitted finish are the problem joints.

Absolutely right about the transistor and also check any adjacent resistors to the transformer and to the line output transistor. Good luck.
