Rca tv issues with vertical hold after resoldering...

Hey guys... me again.... I had this tv that kept shutting off when it would be on for more then 10-15 minuites.....other then that it worked fine.... I pulled the mainboard.. and noted several poor solder connections(some oxidized, some had a ring in them, some only half soldered, etc). I went ahead and resoldered ALL solder connections. Now the tv works fine,doesent shut off by itself anymore.. However, i created a new problem.... NOW on some channels or some scenes, the tv clips off the top and botton 2" of the screen(black)... if i change channels or sometimes even if a scene changes in a tv show then the picture is back to normal. It gets annoying on some channels when the scenes change back and fourth alot. same thing happens from commercial to commercial. It Presents itself mostly with the discoverry channel for some reason.... so either i made a solder connection worse some place or possibly mabye i bridged something someplace.... has this happened to you?????? where should i check next?

Re: rca tv issues with vertical hold after resoldering...

The only thing I can recommend my freind, since I did not resolder the board, is for you to go over your work with a fine tooth comb. Yes I too, with 38 years experience, have cause problems while resoldering or rushing a repair. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

My RCA tv picture is jumping

Vertical jumping may have a vertical hold issue, horizontal may have a horizontal hold issue. Most older tv sets will have some knobs or adjustable screws for vertical and horizontal hold. Turn your set on and check for these knobs on the back of your set and adjust until your picture is in as well as you can get it

Picture tube will not come on.... rca mod f35731 mb chassis ctc169j56 ser 707261399h green light comes on but no picture.... help fuse?> bad picture tube...?

Bad grounds on the power supply are common on these TVs. The power supply will have the flyback transformer. Resolder the flyback, horizontal driver transformer, power resistors etc. Check and study the vertical IC and see if the pins will need resoldering as well. Inspect the small board that is connected to the CRT, and solder this, as necessary. This is a good start for repair, thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Horizontal hold troubleshooting. Can hear but pic is like a line on the screen. Tried adjustments on back

If the line is half way up the picture. This is a vertical problem. Most likely the vertical output IC or a bad solder joint near the IC.

My tv set have a visual vertical line only but sound ok

Your vertical IC may need resoldering or replaced. And replace any capacitor in the immediate area near your vertical IC . Good Luck and be very careful if you decide to fix it yourself!

The tv will not power up. Blinks three times and shuts down. TL010 shorted ,replaced but still has problem.


Thanks for using FixYa. On the Deflection board there are 3 capacitors CP 114, 120 and 150. If any of them is puffed up on top replace all the 3 capacitors CP150 2200UF 16 other 2 are 220UF 35v they will be green with gold writing on them. Resolder all pins on Fly Back Transformer (FBT) also. FBT could be in the power supply. Check the SMPS and in any event replace CP 120: 330UF/35V/HF & CP 150: 2200UF/16V/HF (May be bulged or vented)

Always Resolder Cl031 & Cl032 (usually looks ok on visual inspection but common to ring crack).

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

No picture on tv

This TV has lost it's vertical deflection. When all the TV x-rays are concentrated in a single horizontal line, the TV power shuts off automatically due to the built in X-ray safety device. When the vertical deflection IC burns out, it usually takes part of the circuit board with it. It will not be an easy repair. A 500+ dollar repair at the least, involving finding the burnt out components and replacing them.

Rca (tomson)t25062 keeps shutting off

First thing to check would be L401. Its a small coil from the secondary side of the horizontal driver transformer to the Base of the horizontal output transistor. Not a solder problem, You must take it out and scrap off the leads to remove the excess enamel paint the reinsert and resolder. Also check connections on the driver transformer too(horizontal). Next check for bad solder connections on the flyback transformer too. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.
