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.
please don't take this as me doubting your intelligence, but are you sure your wires are good? sometimes they can become worn out inside of the protective rubber, and partially fail.
Also, how old is the TV? I just got one (for free so i can't complain) from a friend that will start in color on av and then turn to black and white because something inside of it went bad..
Middle going across the screen from left to right??
This unit is plagued with bad solder connections in the comb filter board and flatpack underneath the comb filter board. These connections can cause any odd number of problems in video display. If it is that it's not expensive - virtually no parts. If it's a single line across the screen could also be the vertical circuit involved.
My suggestion is to have it estimated at a reputable shop and take it to them rather than the more expensive pu/del charges.
If you would like go to http://www.nesda.com/locator/state_search.php and locate a servicer from there. Kinda like going to the AMA to find a doctor...
Hope this helps!
