RCA 32V420T (32 inch)

Hello, my tv is about a year and a half old. Since last night it's been turning on for a few seconds with sound, no picture, then a thin line appears in the middle, disappears, and the TV turns itself off. I've tried plugging and unplugging, plugging into a surge protector. Just not sure what's going on! Help!

The repair of this problem will be near to or exceed the cost to replace it with a new flat screen. With TV prices at an all time low due to slack demand it is not cost conscious to repair it.

32" rca picture stretched

Before you fool around with this, it may be under warranty. Check that first. Second, does the picture stretch in both directions or just vertically? If just vertically is it more pronounced at the top?

Rca 52 inch keeps shutting off and picture is curved

The curved picture indicates failing parts in the pin amp section and probably some faulty parts in the scan amplifier sections. The set is being turned off by the uPC because there is a fault indicated, and it is going in to protect mode.

The set will have to be properly serviced.
