Horizontal Lines and smeared color

I have a 32" RCA F3263256 that was working fine one day and then the next day it had horizontal lines and the colors seem to smear across the screen especially the red. Please tell me it is an easy fix :)
Thank you in advance and have a nice day -Renee

    Hello crikett - Thanks for your reply. I kind of thought the tv was toast but I had to try anyway. I do have another tv but I just thought that it was a waste just to toss this one without doing some research.



    Thank you and have wonderful day :) -Renee

No its not a cheap repair Renee, please don't invest your hard earned money into an old 32". If you can buy a newer LCD or Plasma set. LCD's are cheaper and have the smaller sizes that you may want.

I have a mistubishi tv model wd-65737 with bad picture. I replaced the video chip and color wheel but that didn't work....is it possibly that dmd board?..thx


Hi, can you tell me what you see on the screen? It could be a bad cable. Are you using an HDMI cable or the color cables (RCA cables)?

My Ultravision TV is now having horizontal lines. Do not know if it has a horizontal hold button hidden somewhere or is the TV going out? Can I fix it myself. Large screen


Can you try and see if it is your source that has the lines or the actuall TV that has the horizontal lines.
What is your source? Direct TV, Cable TV or even off air Digital TV.
If you remove your source do you still get the horizontal lines? If you do then what colors are they? Seems if when you remove your source input and you still have these H-lines then you have issues with your individual LCD palets. Especially if they are just Green, Red or Blue?

Three coloured lines appered on the screen - no picture


If there is no picture and 3 vertical lines in the center of the screen, stop. Turn off TV. You have no horizontal deflection happening. Lines will burn into crts and be permanently visible after repair.

No horizontal deflection is caused by Horizontal sweep circuit failure, maybe flyback transformer and associated components. More than a simple do-it-yourself repair.

Green horizontal lines on screen no picture


The green CRT's (color picutre tube or color wheel, or ballast) will need to be tested for replacement.
It is quite common with these tv's

You will need an ohmmeter and or voltmeter and test each component for currency and accuracy

Horizontal Lines On Screen


horizontal lines = horizontal sync off . mitsbishi always seemed to have this problem .. on the older sets I would take the back off and inside deep on the board i would adjust a pot and sync it right .... and never had a recall, maybe your newer model has this too .. this little control,

but its a horizontal sync problem.

if no change the horizontal processing ic.
