Have an RCA Colortrak 2000. All is working but picture has been reduced to a thin line (about 1") in the center of the screen. I can't use manual or remote buttons to fix picture size because the TV image is so thin that I can't make out menu selections to try & fix. PLEASE HELP !! Only TV I have.

    Model # is FLR2622T. Previous response suggested DIY help involving soldering -- definitely not my arena. Could do with on-line help ASAP or svc repair tech to my home.

Hello kwes,

First of all do not run the TV in this condition, you will burn the image into the CRTs.
Second you have a failure of your vertical deflection section. This could be the drive signal to the koke transformers has malfunctioned, or the actual drive signal from the vertical output section has been removed either by the vertical coupling capacitor malfunctioning or the drive IC has malfunctioned.
In any event this is most likely the cause of your problem.

I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair technician give you an estimate on the repair, unless you want to try to repair this yourself. If you have a background in electronics you can try the do it yourself route if not my sugestion still stands about haveing the TV technician do the job for you.
Either way it's your choice.

I might be able to give you the schematics if you need them.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

    Please take this TV to local repair shop and qualified TV tech will fix it by replacing few capacitors in vertical deflection section.
    Of course if you have no experience of TV repair then should not try it as electric shock risk is involve in TV repair.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, your described problem indicates a vertical deflection failure. It is most likely the vertical output IC.

Are you considering a DIY (do-it-yourself)? If yes, pls post back availability of soldering iron, soldering lead, desolderer and a DVM or VOM.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
