Rca jack input very distorted

I have a 10 year old rear projection tv that just started having this problem, when i use any of the inputs on the tv, with exception of the svideo jacks, there is a lot of distortion that sort of looks like zigzag lines across the screen and there is very little color. This tv has just started to do this and the rca cords work fine on other televisions. the coaxial input behaves the same way as the rca jacks and all the sets of rca jacks on the tv also do the same ting

any help would be appreciated

Re: rca jack input very distorted

This is probably a short in the TV, most likely a ground problem.

Phillips tv has red tint across screen

This brand is known for getting discolored CRT cooling fluid in the blue and green CRTs. At 10 years old, it's almost for sure .. unless never used. A bit expensive repair. Don't attempt this yourself unless you're both a TV tech and a transmission mechanic ,, LOL.

How should I hook up a dvd player? Which one of the input jacks. I am using rca connectors


On the rear of the DVD locate the composite video output and audio outputs. The connectors will be RCA females. Video is yellow, right audio is red and left audio is right. Connect one end of your patch cable to the appropriate output color. On the TV find the video input one. Connect the yellow, red and white ends of the cord to the same colors on the TV, video input 1. If your TV has a source selection button use it to locate video input one. If not use the menu. Go to input select and choose video input one. Enjoy the movie.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Inputs quit working

check the cords for open.if not, try to wiggle just a little the cords while you insert it, if the screen flicker and shows video signal, you'll need a tech to resolder the jacks.

5 year old RCA 50 inch projection tv. Picture went off.

If you are using component cables make sure they are all connected properly( pushed all the way in and in the correct input). I have seen the red cable come loose several times and cause no red color in the picture. When you change the lamp it is easy to pull on one of those cables and cause it to come loose.
