Re: pincushion??

There is a pincussion correction circuit in this RCA TV set that does have problems from time to time. Its in the horizontal High voltage sweep circuit and should only be worked on by a trained tech as there is alot of High ZVoltage there. In this set there is no user replaceable parts inside, as everything is soldered into place. It could be in your case a pincussion correction driver transistor or the coupling capacitor or capacitors that need to be replaced. if your not trained in the high voltage circuits , for your safety, please call in a local repair person to assist you in this repair.

I assume that the pincushion problem to your TV, ie, the display have curved vertical lines [X] shape. If so, the pincushion circuit should be troubleshooted. Check the transistor of this stage. Try to download the repair manual to this set. It will have all details. Is it a Sony TV? If so, try this link. up older posts.

After a while their was a white line that appeared on the screen and now we cant watch TV. We can hear sound and everything but the only thing we can see is a bright white line

Your vertical IC may have bad grounds. Resolder the pins on the vertical IC. You will also need to replace a capacitor or two that are located next or very near the vertical IC. I would guess you are concerned about a horizontal line that runs east to west across the screen. The info just mentioned will fix your problem. Give me a few hands and thanks for asking me!

Well if this is a tube type, it can be attributed to vertical section. Cold solder on vertical IC, the vertical gone bad or some components on the vertical is at fault.

If your not on electronics better to have it check by a repairer.

Hope this helps.

I need to find the pincushion circuit on my RCA F32632SB TV to check a problem with the TV displaying an hour glass picture. Where can I find a picture of this or a manual to guide me to the circuit?

The pincushion it intimately related to the horizontal circuits,the electron beam must travel farther to reach the corners of the crt and it does to the middle and so without pincushion circuits the raster would be bowed in on the sides on crts 27 inches are larger.Pincushion corrections straightens the raster by modulating the horizontal yoke current at a vertical rate.In an RCA tv the pincushion circuits are usually numbered 4800and the pin amp will probably be numbered 4801,its drive transistor should be Q4802,R4802 will be the width control,and R4805 the e/w pin amplitude. its inputs from the vertical should be Q4801 (subtractor) Q4803 (buffer) you should have a parabola waveform at 4801,yoke current can be modulated here without effecting high voltage.when Q4802 conducts voltage should decrease across Q4801 and the voltage drop across the yoke increases. The east west pin amp control 4805 controls how much of the vertical parabola is input to U4801 to compensate for changes in width caused by variations in beam current.By varying the e/w control resistor you can know if the circuit fault is in the input or output,if the picture varies in size the fault is in the input to U4801,if it does not vary check the output or U4801......hope that helps

Thin lines across the screen

This is a vertical problem
could be bad soldier bad caps or a burend resistor in the verticl section.
vertical repair kit cost about $39, but youl need a tech to do the install.
tv shop should repair for about 60 to 80 usd.
