The set was used with an indoor antennae for the last 10 years. The picture flutters horizontally. I brought it home and hooked into our cable line and we do get a picture on almost all of the available channels but there are several that are fuzzy and/or have the horizontal vertical lines. It appears to have a problem whenever their is a screen change either on the same channel or when switching channels. Can they fix something like this or is it a throw away. Not looking to spend much to repair.

Re: approximately 10 years old
Check the cable type settings it may be a switch on the back of the set or by the antenna input or at the bottom back cover . If no switch then if theres an on screen menu it should be somewhere there. if theres no on screen then theres gotta be a switch. this switch changes the AFC on cable systems from irc ,mirc or normal try all three settings one at a time while changing channels thats where this works . Good Luck

No,Ur Digital antena not getting a good signal,because of lanscape like hills or big buildings,blocking the signal,that why u not getting good signals,or no signals at all.Buy another name brand digital antena with a stronger signal amplifier.Or buy a digital roof antena,well help or solved these problems.
A simple pair of rabbit ears (standard dipole antenna) should do the trick. You will have to set the source input to NTSC/ATSC and connect the antenna to either the analog or digital F- connector inputs if you use a RF splitter you can use one anatenna for both inputs. In any event try this first.
ATSC tuners ("D/A converters") pick up signals off the air just like old school television. It sounds like you are just not getting a signal of sufficient strength. A weak analog signal looks like a "snowy" picture, which most of us are used to. But, the new digital channels quickly go from a perfect picture to none at all. It's basically all-or-nothing.
Try attaching an antenna to your converter. I know you can buy a new antenna from your local big box electronics store which is labeled "Terrestrial HDTV" or something, but that really doesn't mean anything. You can use any old TV antenna. Even a quality FM antenna (with an F-Pin coax connection) may work just fine.
When setting up the antenna, keep in mind that different channels are transmitted from different towers, in different locations with different strengths. Move the antenna placement and position around (just like grandpa had to do). You may have to make a compromise to get the best signal for your favorite channels.
It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
This sounds like one of the 9 volt regulators on the small signal board is going bad, supplying less than 8 volts. I have seen this is several of those sets. The IC needs to be replaced and if you do not have experience in servicing projection TV's then I suggest letting a qualified tech handle it for you.
A 10 year old RCa most likly has a bad Horizontal output transistor as well as the main High Voltage transformer and The transformer is no lonmger available from RCA. The replacement wont last longer then a year if your lucky. My advice on a set this old ?? Buy a newer one!!
