RCA F32450 32" TV wavy picture

My RCA F32450 32" TV has fine wavy lines in pic. Picture is tolerable, but words are unreadable due to waviness. The edge of the facial areas instead of being smooth line are fuzzy for lack of a better description. It appears on all inputs, all over screen. It is not changed by the presence or lack of sound, and is there whether Cable, DVD, Sat or over the air.

Occasionally, the TV will turn itself off, and stay off for about 30 before turning itself on. It will do this once in a while and only one time per viewing time.

It looks like it may be 60 cycle "hum" on the picture, perhaps a result of a faulty PS cap(s). Before I open this up, I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this and how they resolved it. It is a 9/2002 build date, which I think is about the time where the defective Electrolitic caps were an issue.

Any help is appreciated!

Most RCA repairs on your chassis series require a new IHVT,
AKA flyback transformer . Inside an Integrated HVT are diodes
that can degrade and give the appearance of a bad cap....
Of course, you should check the electrolytics with an ESR
meter, just in case....

How do I fix wavy lines on Hauppauge Wintv hvr950q?


Are they wavy lines throughout the picture or are they just wavy on the side? Waving picture is usually caused by poor power supply filtering. Wavy lines throughout the picture are caused by interference. Try moving the device away from the computer with an extension USB cable it may be picking up interference from the surrounding electronic devices. It could also be defective.

Hello,

The problem with the television is the lamp. It is faulty that is why the screen turns wavy in minutes.

The solution to that is to replace the light and your television will be in good condition once again.

Take care

My Samsung hdtv rear projection tv model#HCM4216W doesn't have any sound good picture though but does have some light waves in picture


the lack of sound is likely due to a defective audio output amplifier integrated circuit or IC for short, it needs replacing, the wavy lines through you picture is due to a defective filter capacitor in your power supply circuit, or may be due to the audio amplifier I.C drawing more current from your power supply causing a non clean power to be supplied to the video circuits, have the audio amp replaced first and note if the wavy lines are still present if so it is likely that some filter capacitors need replacing, to obtain sound you might be able to connect a external amplifier like your home stereo using the aux input and the sound output from your TV`s RCA jacks, this works well, let me know if you need further assistance good luck

There are wavy colored lines an the screen all the


A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.

I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.

Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.

You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.

If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...

And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
