My best answer is check with your local TV shop for any service manuals. Most TV companies do not sell parts or information to consumers. This is true for RCA/GE as well. You can google search your TV model and see if you can find any info.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

U talking about way back in the 40 and 50.From the 60 on tv all use intergrated circuit board.Mostly ICS chips now,no more tubes and analog parts.The problems ur tv have is the Horizontal IC chip is dead.
the vertical deflection circuit of your tv has a problem.first try to replace the vertical ic..this ic can be found near the plyback or horizontal section It is a lenear ic with heatsinc..if nothing happens after replacing the ic ,,replace all the polarized capacitor near the ic and resolder the components at the vertical section...good luck please rate my help..
Yes , this sounds like the EPROM IC is failing or the crystal that keeps the frequency on the IC needs to be replaced , or even the buttons on the tv could be warped by the heat of the tv( if it is the buttons , then removing the control board from the plastic buttons will stop the random cycle and may make it so you can turn on the tv , but if not then it is the EPROM IC or crystal)
to check and see if the chip is messing up , hold down the menu button on the tv or vol up down and see if it stops cycling thru the video inputs
Yes it is called an EEPROM IC chip that needs to be replaced. Very comon to fail on these types of sets. GE owned RCA back the 1990's now funai owns both along with magnavox and parts may be hard to get.
Most likely it's your memory ic (eprom). Sometimes depending on the make, an authorized service center can flash the eprom back to normal. This is something you can not do but I hope this helps a little.
take123, problem is with vertical circuit not eprom, could be bad capacitor supporting the IC or the IC itself is bad, that type of problem needs a tech because once it`s fixed you will probably have to go into the service menu and re-adjust the vertical positioning, this of course will require the info in the service manual which you can`t easily obtain, questions? e-mail me back, BMW Rider
