    Thank you for your help, and I guess I will have to get it repaired at a TV repair center, but it was worth a try with you first.

Hi,

Normally, this would indicate that the vertical capacitor is about to fail. Depending on the brand and model, more often than not, these are the slightly bigger among the bunch of capacitors physically close to the vertical IC.

This of course would require a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron and preferably access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram. Otherwise, you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional or a friend who has some experience with de-soldering and soldering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

CRT TV with a white line half way up the screen


Hello,

The white line is result of a Vertical failure. Believe it or not, the whole picture is contained in that one white line, but it is not spread out from top to bottom on the screen.

Usually, a vertical failure is IC or capacitor related. Should be an easy, fairly inexpensive fix for a competent repair shop.

Hope this helps you...

Horizontal white lines across top of TV screen


Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.

White lines


These are retrace lines. This may be a fault in the blanking circuits. On some occasions a weak CRT can also cause blanking lines to show.

This is something you would not be able to service yourself. I would suggest to have an estimate done on the TV set for you to decide if it should be serviced or not.

Very poor picture


  • your problem is called picture with retrace lines.
  •  your problem is in video output circuit
  • as you are saying that it was off for a year that means there is possibility of loose contact in that section.

  • supply to video output absent or loose print.
  • loose connector in crt base.
  • crt base loose
  • voltage on screen control or g2 absent or wire loose.
  • screen control located on flyback transformer mistuned.
  • hope this will help

RCA 32V420T 32" TV


This RCA set uses the CTC187BD chassis. Look on the back of the set and to the right of the cable connector you will see 2 controls sticking out, one on top of the other. The top control is for focus and the bottom one is screen, or overall brightness. If these controls have been turned clockwise then you will have a bright, fuzzy picture with white lines (retrace lines) through it. Tune in a channel with white letters on the screen and turn the top (focus) control until the letters are crisp and sharp. Go into the menu and turn the contrast and brightness all the way down, and then turn the bottom control (screen) until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture is too dark to see. Go back into the menu and reset the contrast and brightness and the picture will be back to perfect.

Tv showing blue screen with flyback lines sound ok


Flyback lines? Is the picture all white with no brightness control with faint horizontal faint lines? If this is what you are saying, the screen voltage could be bad, and if thats the case, the picture tube or the flyback itself could be bad. You could also have a bad connection on the crt socket
