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.

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.

TV has sound but no picture RCA ColorTrak 2000 P52150CP


If I had a model # it would be helpful but my guess is the deflection circuit failed and a fuse opened in that circuit. Could be vertical or hoizontal circuit failure but either way you will need test equip. as well as solder/desolder equip. to repair it. If set is over 10-12 years old you may consider replacing set in this case Sorry I can't be more help.

Television has no picture


That TV uses the PTK195 chassis, and the fact that you see only a thin line for each color near the bottom of the screen tells me your vertical output IC has stopped working, and is putting a small DC voltage across the yokes. I have seen this caused by a defective vertical output IC and I have also seen vertical problems caused by a small CRT coolant leak which drips onto the main board near the vertical output IC. If you do not have experience servicing the PTK195 chassis than have a qualified tech handle it for you.

RCA Colortrak Plus Model # F27672ET


Your set might have a leaky capacitor that takes a while to fully charge to the supply voltage as well as loose conections to the vertical Ic,sometimes you can identify it because it overheated and the insulation is peeling,sometimes they look normal but they are bad.If you are familiar with tv service you will have a place to check but if you are not too familiar seek the assistance of a servicer.
