White horizontal lines on top of screen

Replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the vertical output section circuit. There will be 5 or 6 of them. Replace the at one time. The fault you see is technically called " vertical retrace lies".

On my RCA truflat tv there are solid white horizontal lines going across the top 5 inches of the screen? Do i need to get it repaired or is it a simple problem?

Your TVs vertical output section has the trouble. Electrolytic capacitors in that section, 8 numbers the most, should be replaced with new capacitors. Iit won't cost more. OK.

Visual transparent lines at top of picture

You have a vertical output circuit problem. This was common for Philips' sets. Have a repair shop check it out. Should not be too expensive to repair.

Wavy horizontal lines on bottom of RCA 36in Truflat TV

The convergance or y-sus board can become faulty. The capcitors do tend to burn out. It is about a $250 + repair for this. Not all parts can be repaired, but they can be replaced. A capacitor tester and multi-meter are about the best tools for the job. If the price you get is over $250, I simply would replace it instead of repairing it..

RCA 27 in has white horizontal line going through the middle

this symptons is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence, the trouble may be in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuit. in most modern tv the vertical ic is usually composed of these said circuit inside. the ic have many pins, standing on a heat sink and smaller in size. try to check also the capacitors surrounding it. sometimes leaky capacitor may cause this problem. good luck!

White lines on the top 2 inches of screen there

You Probably have some failing Electrolytic Capacitors in the Vertical circuit. it will only get worse and can cause the circuit to fail
all together if not fixed. Unless you are Electronically Savvy and know you way around TV circuits do not attempt to repair. Call a professional.

Top four inches of screen running horizontal is distorted.

The problem is most likely in the vertical circuit, possibly the vertical IC itself or one of the feeder caps in that circuit. Could be possible poor solder connections on the IC also. Is the problem intermittent? There are a number of common problems with this unit effecting the following parts: Dp027 (27v Zener) P/N 244835 Tp022 (Bc648) P/N 198743 Tp025 (Bc558) Ip001 P/N 257786 Ip050 Ic Voltage Regulator , Zener Diode With 3 Legs Looks Like Diode. Ip030 263567 Dp057 232662 Tp052 198743 Tp020 (2sk2842) P/N 263692 Tp023 (2sc8550) P/N 257827 Dp025 244870 This is an ITC008 chassis built in mexico and the problem you're describing should be an inexpensive repair - but my downside opinion is that with this particular unit you could expect the next problem in about one to two years. Being a certified technician there are few TV's that I would tell a customer to walk away from if they were considering a purchase - but this is one of them. I'm sorry for such a negative review, please don't take it out on my rating for this solution. But if you have it repaired take it in yourself and save a few bucks - and ask the shop to save all the old parts for you. Good Luck Bill
