If the picture is in an hourglass shape this has nothing to do with vertical hold. Besides, on all these sets, the hold and parameters are all uPC controled through a firmware routine that is burned in to an EPROM.

It is obvious that there is a failed component somewhere because of the hour glass shape. The area of failure is most likely in the pin amp section. If the hourglass is from the sides, it would be horizontal pin. If it is top and bottom, the fault is in the vertical pin section.

A common cause is from a capacitor that has failed in the mentioned area. Sometimes it can be an IC or other type of component in the pin amp area, but not as often as failed capacitors.

You can take the set in to service the fault. I don't think you can fix this yourself unless you are trained in TV service and have the experience and setup to troubleshoot for the bad parts, and do this type of service.

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

The picture is moving up and down in every 3 sec


Vertical hold needs adjustment. Check for vertical hold preset and adjust. If no preset present in the P C B of the TV, try through service mode adjustment. Service mode adjustment possible only by the authorized service provider.

Vertical hold will adjust the frequency (refresh) which would remedy it if the picture was rolling. I had to open up my TV (not recommended unless you know what you're doing) and adjust a "pot" which will adjust your screen's hourglass problem. I hope this helps.
