Question about RCA P46921 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture on TV showed as small lines at the top of the screen. Sound was fine but picture was bad. This happened while playing a video game. Unplugged TV from the outlet for about a half hour. Plugged it back in and it looked ok. After about 7 hours and while watchng a DVD movie the lines came back again. Is something overheating or is the Video Input causing the problem?

I would definitely say you have a heating up problem, im guessing either the convergance ic are heating up or HOT or horz output or a capacitor, you could try spraying freeze (radio shack carries it) when the problems starts showing up to isolate the problem.

Horizonal line across middle of screen top half of picture perfect bottom half has small lines in picture hitachi hd S 69 plasma


I'm not sure if this model is the one that has resistors that go bad. You can actually purchase a pack of resistors in a kit. It will come with solder, the resistors and instructions. You can lay the tv out and take the circuit board out to find the blown components, and replace the bad ones. Takes about an hour start to finish and will cost around $65.00. It has been a few years since I did this, so I'm not sure on the price.

My system works fine but some demo downloads won't play I have sound but the picture shows diagonal lines across the screen


Maybe the Demo Game isn't compatible with your TV, or your PS3. Try going to a friends house (who has a PS3 obviously), and try downloading that game on his. If it works, it could be just your PS3. If not, its probably the Game itself.

VIDEO TAPE WHEN PLAYED WAVE AT THE TOP OF THE TV SCREEN


This is a common problem usually seen when playing copy protected tapes. The part of the picture affected is normally off the top of the screen. Sometimes the problem is also due to the VCR itself and differences in tapes. It's also possible for the TV itself to be causing this, although you would probably also notice this flag-waving (that's what it's called) on regular TV viewing if that were true.

Sometimes increasing the height of the picture can push the affected area off the top again. But this can also cause you to lose part of the picture you want. Also, the height adjustment may be difficult to find as it's not something normally used. On some TV's it's a small pot somewhere on the board, but most newer sets have electronic adjustments through a service menu that you need to know how to access.

I'd suggest trying another VCR first and play one of the tapes you know shows the trouble. That might be all it takes. Then consider trying to increase the picture height if it's just a small bit at the top of the screen.

Top of the screen Picture Problem


sound like you have 1 or a couple of leaky/bad capacitors in the tv's vertical circuit, typically, there sould be 5 to 10 caps. in all, but you just need 1 bad one to cause your problem. good luck.
