Re: hortizontal line

From your description of the problem, there seems to be a Cold solder in the Vertical Oscillator or Deflection Coil circuits. If you know Solid State electronics, and are good with a soldering Iron, sure u can do this yourself. U gotta trace the Vertical section components and locate the cold solder. In most cases it will be a loose connector from the Deflection coil to the main PCB.Also check for the soldering of the Vertical output IC.

White line only, has sound, may be 14 yrs old.

If there is a white line across the screen, the vertical output section of your TV is faulty. If the line is vertical at the middle of the screen, horizontal deflection yoke doesn't get sweep signal. You haven't mentioned about the full mode number of your RCA TV. Therefore I can only give you this much hint. OK.

Black screen with white horizontal line in middle of screen. Turn tv off for about 20 minute and then tv okay

The solder connections at the vertical output integrated circuit are bad and losing contact as the part heats up. A few minutes with a soldering iron to repair the connections should fix that up.

My 15 year old Toshiba Televisiononly shows a narrow horizontal band in the middle of the screen. Sound OK.

Hiii fairley,

You aren't specsificly dercribe yor tv set.
For common TV horizontal problem ;i.e : White line accross the horizontal screen, horizontal band,'s can solved by replacing the IC Vertical/Transistor, and olso to replace the cap nearest the IC.

For common TV Vertical Problem :i.e : White line at the center of the screen (top to bottom),Vertical band,etc...It's can cure by Replacing the Horizontal IC/Transistor,and offcurse the cap's.

Tha's what all I know....

Hope can help you to solved the problem.

No picture no sound

Did you mean the picture is collapsed only in the middle horizontally(white line appears on the middle part of the screen)?
If that is the case, maybe vertical IC failed or loose connection.

It sounds like a vertical deflection problem. You mentioned you had a white HORIZONTAL LINE in the middle of the screen. If this line runs from left to right across the screen it's in Verticla deflection. If it runs from top to bottom, it's in Horizontal deflection. I am assuming the problem is a Vertical deflaecion problem. The repairs necessary are most likley to replace the vertical capacitors or the verticla deflection chip.
Good Luck

No vertical deflection. Vertical output IC, caps.

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines

It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.
