Re: RCA 25GT536 picture has a horisonal wave or wiggle...

Any kind of wave form usually is cause by a bad filter, the question is if it's in the powersupply or horizontal section. I would first start with PS. Look for bad capacitors.

RCA 27 inch ColorTrak Plus. TV is hooked to cable. I can produce the problem by wiggling the coax connector. The screen goes through various degrees of snowy-ness until I find the sweetspot on the coax....

The failure with this TV is due to faulty ground in the tuner that is why when you wiggle the cable connected to the tuner the picture clears up. If this failure is not repair, it will corrupt the data on the eprom until the TV will not power ON anymore.
Check the info from this link to find more info on the failure of your TV.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

My RCA F36648 36" TV has only the bottom half of my picture working. The top half has horizontal lines that distorte the picture. It looks like when you pull a rake through the sand the lines that are left...

You have vertical output problems.There is distortion at the top because of a faulty vert. output i.c. or a faulty electrolytic capacitor.It's possible there may be a problem at your yoke also.It needs a professional repair.

Picture is wiggling. Like waves.

the power supply has variations meaning your supply is not constant, it is not giving the same outputs voltages.
plse check the following
capacitors which have changed values
semi conductors which are leaking.
thanks for trusting fixya.

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

RCA 25GT511 - fuzzy picture slight static sound; wiggle coax rear mount temp resolve

There might be a bad (loose) connection in the RF isolator or the tuner (both are silver boxes. Try to unplug the coax and bend the RCA tabs in so that the connection gets firmly made when reconnected. This may help. If it does not The connector may have to be replaced.

Bowlike effect convergence all screwwed up

I suspect you originally had an intermittent solder connection on the convergence circuit board. This may have damaged the convergence IC's on that board by now if repairing those connections doesn't fix the set.

Bottom of picture is cut off

Usually when the vertical starts shrinking slowly, it is due to capicators getting out of tolerance in the vertical output section of the chassis. If it can be adjusted out through a service menu, you'll probably need a tech with the right equipment to perform it.
