If one tv looks good and another one dosent look good or operate correctly then we know for sure that the problem is not the antenna. Now the menu comes up ok because the menu is injected after the tuner into the video curcuit from a osd or microprocessor. sounds like you could have a defective tuner or antenna block assy.

I wish I had the idea to install a cooling fan, a local repair shop fixed mine by replacing a power supply component, cost $575 including sales tax. I suspect that a cooling fan would increase the life of the power supply, I will install one!

You can Ship boards for repair if you are unable to solder and replace componets.
You first need to Look the Deflection board for Poor Solder Connections and Bad Capacitors
CP150 2200uf 16v use 25v CP114 and CP120 220uf 35v, If CP 150 is swollen or vented on Top then replace all 3 capacitors. Deflection board is the bottom Left hand side and next to it on Right hand side is the SSB board. If the Deflection board is OK ,then replace the SSB board.
PTS rebuilts boards 1-800-844-7871
UED 1-800-648-6657 Has Replacement boards also.

This is a terrible thing to tell you, but, what you describe is called dijitizing then the light engine failed Now it gets real bad ,,, This part 261589 is about $590.00 and is on factory backorder with no ETA in site. We have been waiting for one of these at our shop now for over 5 months. RCA knows about this problem and you might want to give them a call and see if they will do anything
