Re: need to know how to acess the service menu

First, I would do a factory reset. Press power on the TV to turn it on. Press SET UP on the front of the TV. Press CH- (channel down) Next, on the remote control, press MENU. Make sure the cursor is beside VIDEO and press RETURN. Press the UP and DOWN or + and ? buttons to scroll to the item you want, and press RETURN. Press the UP or DOWN (+ or -) buttons to adjust the item AND press RETURN to save the setting. Do this for each category you want to adjust. We hope this helps you, and please let us know if you need any additional troubleshooting. Best regards. nightdiver

Picture too low in screen can be from a circuit inside the TV.

Just got this tv from friend. has no remote. screen is black. sound is good. when you push menu button, white line goes across horizontally the screen.

The horizontal line indicates the vertical deflection circuit is not working. Either the set is stuck in service mode for adjusting color (turns off vertical), or the deflection circuit has failed.

Some RCA TV sets have a "Service" switch in the back, down near the bottom of the set. Most of the newer sets use a combination of remote control and front panel buttons to get into service mode, and that can be turned off by unplugging the set and plugging it back in. Try looking for the mechanically operated service switch in the back first.

Picture horizontal problems

There is a sevice menu but it is something a repair man has to adjust. Even to get to that menu is a matter of procedure. If the picture is not always squeezed down then adjustment is not the problem. If it is intermitant it could be a bad solder connection on the main board.Sometimes a bad vertical ic and leakey capacitors can be the problem..
Bottom line is there is not much you can do to correct the problem. You are going to need a service man

In my case, the adjustment was available from outside the TV. Sortof. On the rear of the TVabout 2 inches to the right of the coax in, there are two vertical slits on a little protrusion. Inside the slits are the two adjustment screws. The lower screw adjusts brightness, the upper screw adjusts focus.

Bottom of picture is cut off

Usually when the vertical starts shrinking slowly, it is due to capicators getting out of tolerance in the vertical output section of the chassis. If it can be adjusted out through a service menu, you'll probably need a tech with the right equipment to perform it.

Cant locate or adjust the the TV color

All the controls should be accesed thru the on screen menu,your remote should have a menu or display button and if you press it on the screen of the tv you should see a list of different options ,I am not familiar with the kind of menu that your set has but I know the color adjustment should be in the same screen that allows you to change the brightness,shapness,tint,color and contrast,the more you use the menu and become familiar with it the easiest it will be to use.Let us know if you need more information.
