Question about RCA 24F501TDV 24" TV

Hoizontal Bar across RCA Model 24F501TDV Color TV

When I first turn on the TV...There is a horizontal bar across the top of the screen (about 6-8 inches wide). There is video in the bar...but appears like the interlace lines are on top of each other. After about 10 minutes the bar shrinks to about 1 inch in size and then looks like vertical foldover.

You may need to change your resolution on tv settings as well as cable or satelite settings if you have one of those

I have a 46 inch RCA 46la45rq and it has a yellow bar going vertical across the picture


Go to a unused Video input and examine the screen---if bar is top/bottom it is horizontal and if left right it is vertical.

A bar top to bottom (most common) that is NOT black is usually fixable.

I would suspect a bad circuit board and the worst case will be the display panel itself is the problem which is fatal---a lot of the Panels (the entire front screen unit) are in series which means if a section of the panel fails the entire area it covers will be blank---usually Black.

Boards would have to be subbed to see if one is causing it or it is the panel.

I know it is a pain but try contacting RCA to see if this is a common issue with this model and if they have any software upgrades for this.

A number of other people who have posed questions here have reported (no surprise to me) RCA almost impossible to get help from "they ****" was one comment made to me.

Thompson is the parent company

The only other possible suggestion (since line is Yellow) is it may be a loose cable or connection somewhere in the set--even inside the panel.

Pink bar across top of tv screen


This could be from 2 things. 1 is the optical block is going bad or 2 you got a peice of dust blown in from the cooling fan and its blocking the color filter internally. If you are capable you can take the tv apart and blow compressed air into the color block and remove the dust. Hope this helps

Red bar across top of screen??


I had the same horizontal, solid red bar along the top of the tv screen. I have an older analog Philips Magnavox TP2785C221. It just started all of a sudden. It was on every channel. However, the bar did not appear on the other input channels (e.g., AV1, AV2). So this meant that the red bar was only occurring on the antenna input. I unplugged my cable decoder box and restarted it. The red bar went away and that seemed to solve the problem for now.
