Question about RCA Televison & Video

3 thin colored lines across the top of screen of an rca r56wh78

Hello!
Well, I just bought a 56'' rear projection tv off of craigslist. I took it home and it looked fine for about 45 seconds then the screen went black with three cored lines going across the screen.
I looked inside for perhaps some fuses to replace but cannot locate any. Anyone know what the problem maybe or even where the fuses are hiding?
Thanks!
Jeremy

This is a convergence problem that can be either bad connections on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Let me know if yuo'd like to do this and I'll provide additional instructions. If you go the route of a service call, expect a aprts cost in the $40-$60 range plus the local labor rate.

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.
