It is not the picture tube but is a vertical deflection problem. Usually it is a capacitor C246 and this is the location number and is a .47mf And at the same token bad solder connections on the pins of the vertical deflection IC301. Soldering the pins of IC301 is likely to fix the set.

Where do I locate the picture tube in the tv and replace it?


there is no tube,it has different components and to fix them is going to cost you more than a flat screen tv

RCA DLP tv, the picture goes blank after a few minutes, and then comes back on and goes back off again...


Take it back to the store. If warrenty is expired then you will have to get a new TV or send it for repair . I don't know of anyone that comes to your home for TV repair. Sounds like picture tube is out of it.

Can dust build up on a picture tube's circuit board cause them to overheat and shut the tv down.


dust will not cause an issue like this in this type of set--RCA? it means a short of some type exists and the set shuts down or blanks the tubes--all you have described as far as appearance is normal.

RCA sets like this can be difficult to repair and also if you Google the model number you will see they have a lot of "problems".

White lines across tv screen


Without seeing the lines I can't be sure what your set has wrong, but here are a some possibilities:

If the lines are lines are confined to the top inch or two of the screen and the picture looks otherwise normal, the trouble is bad capacitors in the vertical output circuit. Fixable by replacing the bad parts.

If diagonal lines are across the entire face of the picture tube and the picture looks washed out, the trouble is often a bad capacitor on the 200-volt line to the picture tube. This may be on the main circuit board near the horizontal output transformer, or on the small circuit board plugged onto the end of the picture tube. Again, replacing the bad capacitor can fix this.

If your TV is actually an RCA, someone may have bumped a rear-panel adjustment. On the back of the TV near the bottom right are two small knobs. RCA left these adjustments exposed inside of putting them inside the set like other manufacturers. These sometimes get bumped if someone was behind the set cleaning, or if a pet got back there and hit them with a tail. The top knob adjusts focus, and the bottom knob adjusts something called G2 or screen voltage. If this gets turned up too high it can cause the faded picture and diagonal white lines. Turn the adjustment down until a black screen looks black instead of gray.

A bad picture tube or horizontal output transformer can also cause lines through the picture. If this is the case with your set, it's time for a new TV. The transformer is relatively inexpensive but labor costs aren't, and the repair bill may exceed $200. If the tube is bad, there's no point even considering repair. The tube cost alone exceeds the cost of new TV.

Hopefully your lines are easy and cheap to fix. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

First pull back Look for screen and focus block you will have 3 controls ontop for focus and 3 controls below for adjusting screen drive to each Tube R/G/B
turn color off on Menu NOW try to Adjust the red,greenand blue screen drives as close asyou can to a Black and White picture then turn Color back on in Menu also adjust Focus for each Tube Be sure to Clean Top of Tube Lenses of dust&dirt Just in case Post me your Model and Chassis Number it will be on back of TV some RCA Focus&screen drive Block maybe in front of TV if so remove front bottom panel their you will see control box.

RCA TV, model number 32V550T. No picture but sound is fine.


hiya

this sometimes is quite simple to fix as it cud be a dry joint on the circuit board where the tube motor sits.


or it cud be the tube is on its way out, which wud be cheaper to buy a new tv rather than have it fixed

Screen went black, no picture


A clue to what is wrong is by looking from the back (taking the back off) and looking to see if the three picture tubes have any yellow glow at the bottom of them where the three identical boards are located on each tube.. If you have no glow there you possibly have a resistor R4703 open. It is a 3.3 ohm resistor and feeds the voltage to the filaments in each tube where the glow is suppose to be. If you do have the glow the problem could be much more complicated. Another to check is to see if the menu comes up on the screen. You could possibly be in the wrong input mode, Check your input mode with the input button on the remote The number R4703 is a location number to identify where the resistor is. This is all I can tell you that would not require much more complicated procedures requiring a tv repairman to look at it. If you have an ohm meter you can check R4703 but it must be checked out of circuit. (or at least one leg loose) Hope this helps

RCA Model # 20F510TD TV/DVD


What makes you think the picture tube is bad? What exactly are the symptoms you see? The RCA 20 inch picture tube is a good quality long lasting tube and I doubt I have ever seen a bad one.
