Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

Horizontal Lines My RCA is about 2.5 years old and it has been a pretty good T.V. for us. Lately we have been getting a number of horizontal lines across the screen. Sometimes it is clear as day, but other times we can not even tell what is going on. Is there anything that I can simply do to fix the problem?

Re: Horizontal Lines

RCA is not a good tv brand as far as i can tell but other than that you may need to have your tv looked at before something else happens. You may have 1 or 2 bad IC's.

My RCA console tv has white horizontal lines accross screen, picture is very light and sound is ok, very frustrating. I know its an old tv, but appreciate any response. Thanks

Cold solder joints on the flyback transformer circuit board - probably because RCA used feed-thru steel rivets on their boards. Re-solder the connections using a good solder flux for clean solder joints and this will fix prob. The joints with the dull, pitted finish are the problem joints.

Absolutely right about the transistor and also check any adjacent resistors to the transformer and to the line output transistor. Good luck.

RCA pix tearing horizontal lines

Get an ESR meter and check all the electrolytic capacitors in the set! I am sure you will find many decoupler and coupling capacitors that are on the edge or too high in ESR.

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines

It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.
