RCA D52W20B Vert/ Hor Hold Problem

Our Set is developing an intermittent vertical/horizontal hold problem. I don't see any external adjustments. Are there any internal pots that I can get to for adjustments?

    My problem is very similar, again a RCA, but my picture "rolls" constantly. If I knew where the "vertical output IC and the flyback connections" were, I can probably solder it, as I used to work for a company that made circuit boards for aircraft test instruments. Any way to find out where these connections are?

My RCA tv picture is jumping

Vertical jumping may have a vertical hold issue, horizontal may have a horizontal hold issue. Most older tv sets will have some knobs or adjustable screws for vertical and horizontal hold. Turn your set on and check for these knobs on the back of your set and adjust until your picture is in as well as you can get it

How do I adjust the vertical hole on an RCA HDTV/ MONITOR Model number D52W20 Serial number D493C304Q Manufactured date Dec 2003.... UL/FDA MODEL D52W20B

The model number does not match the set in the video, this is a newer LCD or Plasma set-almost no set made in the last 20 years has a vertical hold, besides I see 3 images or its 3d and camera saw that.
12_16_2012_3_44_02_am.jpgThis is what the model made in 2003 looks like.

The other set likely has a bad main board that controls everything, without the correct model I cannot even research it.

Hqw can I adjust the vertical hold on a 36" sharp tv. it is built in and not easy top access the back

That's not the vert. hold...that for the vert col on the flyback...don't touch that! You need a service remote control to adj.vert and the right codes

RCA F27669 TV does not seem to have a Horizontal Hold. My picture has shifted about 2 inches to the left.

Generally speaking: go into the menu where you set up the colours, brightness, backlighting, etc.

Vertical/horizontal adjustments will be in there.

I can't find a manual online to be more specific.

Picture is rolling and we can't find a vert. hold adjustment. The original remote has been lost so we are using a universal remote.

there should be a control on thr rear of the tv set that does the vertical, and one for the horizontal holds. Sounds like it has been accidently knocked when doing house work!

No picture just a line across the middle of the screen

a horizontal line means the vert output is defect,a vertical line means the hor. output is defect.

Armed with DMM, tools, and solder...

It is unuaual for the horizontal to go out, leaving a vertical line.
The vertical gets it's power from the horizontal circuit, so if the hor. fails you should have nothing on the display. In this case it may be as simple as the hor. connector to the yoke being burned and not making a good connection. In any case I'm sure the circuitry is ok and you should look for cracked solder joints and/or burned connections. The shut down could be due to there being no hor. deflection, causing the HV to go to high, causing the shutdown. You should check/replace any capacitors that are bad, especially those around the HV shutdown circuit.

Rolling screen

This may be a vertical hold control problem I'm not sure where the Vert. Hold potentiometer is on the mainboard. I would see if you can find someone who can locate it and adjust it.
