Recently RCA/GE were purchased by a large Chinese Corporation. Some of the newer sets are totally CHINESE.Here are some of the common problems that would give you this symptom. Bad connections on the IHVY(flyback). Open horizontal windings in the Yoke. The original problem is problably due to an inaccaure setting in either the red cutoff or red background. These adjustments can only be made from the servicemans menu and are not accessable to the consumer. The problems described are of a serious nature(except you original one). You may consider shopping for a new set , replacing it with an LCD. The LCD gives off no radiation and cost much less to operate (electricty) Scrivitron
