Re: Horizonal White Line

Your problem could be one of the common ones as this set has loads of bad solder connections. Your problem is most likly the verticle output IC connections or the B+ feed componets have bad solder connection on them. In some cases though the Output IC is defective and will need to be repalce. if you have no soldid state repair or soldering skills play it safe and get a pro to assist you in this repair. It should not cost you more then a hundred bucks or so and thats the high end. good Luck, And Merry christmas.

This is called Field Collapse and usually caused by the frame/field output going open circuit and/or the componants that surround that part.

Call a service centre in your locality who put it right (:-)

31'sanyo tv analog has a white horizonal line thru it

There is a failure in the vertical amp section. This can be the main output IC, or any of the support components in this area.

An experienced tech can troubleshoot the set, and determine and service the fault.

Thin horizonal line in middle on dark screen

The several thin white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the vertical output IC is not getting the boost voltage it needs to run correctly. The IC cannot operate for long like that and shorts out inside, which is when the vertical collapses altogether and you get the thin white line through the center of the screen. The good news for your son is that he had nothing to do with that, and it has nothing to do with the cable F connector. The set needs to be serviced by an experienced tech who will restore the boost supply and replace the vertical output IC, and when I do that I charge $75 but techs in your area will vary, so be sure to ask around.

RCA 32V420T 32" TV

This RCA set uses the CTC187BD chassis. Look on the back of the set and to the right of the cable connector you will see 2 controls sticking out, one on top of the other. The top control is for focus and the bottom one is screen, or overall brightness. If these controls have been turned clockwise then you will have a bright, fuzzy picture with white lines (retrace lines) through it. Tune in a channel with white letters on the screen and turn the top (focus) control until the letters are crisp and sharp. Go into the menu and turn the contrast and brightness all the way down, and then turn the bottom control (screen) until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture is too dark to see. Go back into the menu and reset the contrast and brightness and the picture will be back to perfect.
