RCA 27 inch ColorTrak Plus. TV is hooked to cable. I can produce the problem by wiggling the coax connector. The screen goes through various degrees of snowy-ness until I find the sweetspot on the coax....


The failure with this TV is due to faulty ground in the tuner that is why when you wiggle the cable connected to the tuner the picture clears up. If this failure is not repair, it will corrupt the data on the eprom until the TV will not power ON anymore.
Check the info from this link to find more info on the failure of your TV.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

RCA 27R410T Television colors are distorted


If you`re talking about colored spots in the screen, then you may have a degauss problem. It was frequent for those sets to have bad solder joint on the degaussing coil connector or thermistor next to it.If you`re handy with a soldering iron these connections would be near the a.c line input. good luck and don`t forget to unplug

My T.V. has a funny color .. more of double viewing with purple and green what can I do to fix this?


Your set has a problem with its convergence circuitry. In many cases this can be simply failure of solder connections to the output integrated circuits due to the heat they generate, and resoldering them fixes the trouble. This is a repair you might be able to try for yourself if you have experience with electronic soldering. Or there might be component failure which would require the equipment to isolate and replace the bad parts, which is a repair level best left to professionals. In some cases where the set has digital convergence, the failure might be in the computer control portion. This means the repair might range from only a very few dollars in parts to quite a lot of dollars, plus whatever labor rate the servicer charges. If you aren't looking for an excuse to replace the set, getting an estimate on a professional repair would be the best suggestion.

Degaussing is deliberately applying a magnetic field to the face of a picture tube. This is done to neutralize the effect of other magnetic fields that can cause color distortion. Degaussing isn't done in projection sets because they have separate tubes for each color.

Sharp 56dr650 Dlp colorwheel for Mike miaer


I have a Sharp 56dr650. The color wheel bearing failed. Sharp cares not for its customers and won't even respond to my pleads for help in obtaining the replacement. So, with that said, I went to ebay and bought a vizio color wheel (Omega TV in Hollywood, FL). Color wheel is incorrect and colors are all blue as is, so I pulled the color wheel off and did the same from the old one-BIG note, the wheels are glass and fragile, DO NOT BREAK the old color wheel! I viced the old bearing and carefully worked the shaft out of the bearing (it is snapped into the bearing). The vice distorted the old bearing but it was trash anyway. The new bearing, I broke the new color wheel off and viced the shaft. I then pulled the old bearing from the wheel. I then carefully push the old shaft and color wheel into the new bearing (you will know when it snaps in place) asserting preasure ONLY on the metal center hub with my thumb. I had to file a new slot on the cast housing as the ribbon connector is about 1/2 inch shorter on the new bearing. I installed and it all works great!!! Saved from tossing a $2,000 plus tv out! SHAME ON SHARP! Never buy another Sharp product!
