This RCA set uses the CTC187BD chassis. Look on the back of the set and to the right of the cable connector you will see 2 controls sticking out, one on top of the other. The top control is for focus and the bottom one is screen, or overall brightness. If these controls have been turned clockwise then you will have a bright, fuzzy picture with white lines (retrace lines) through it. Tune in a channel with white letters on the screen and turn the top (focus) control until the letters are crisp and sharp. Go into the menu and turn the contrast and brightness all the way down, and then turn the bottom control (screen) until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture is too dark to see. Go back into the menu and reset the contrast and brightness and the picture will be back to perfect.

Camera screen has lines


Are they an option offered in the menu system to assist in obtaining level horizons, or are they random ? If the latter, then the LCD in the viewfinder may have connection problems or broken circuits. Has it been dropped or knocked recently? Was it subject to extreme temperature etc ? You may find the lines shift around or even go away for some time. That again would imply bad connections.

Single line across set(horizonal)


A single horizontal line on your CRT Television indicates that the Vertical Drive Transistor has failed. Not as large and easily accessible as the Horizontal Output Transistor, the VDT should be fairly easly to locate and replace.

Polaris by meade all set up but cant see anything but a white light.


Sounds like it is severely unfocussed. Finding the focus point on an astronomical telescope is often difficult until you have had experience with it, as the range of adjustment is very long to accommodate eyepieces of different focal lengths.

I suggest that you try the telescope first in daylight (NOT pointed at or near the Sun), using the least powerful eyepiece (the one with the largest number). Try it on objects on the horizon, remembering that they will appear upside down. This is a good time to get the accessory viewfinder scope lined up with the main scope, too. When you have become familiar with the low power eyepiece, try a higher power, which will focus at a different point (and be harder to find objects with). Then try it out at night, on a bright easily found object like the moon.

There is a failure in the vertical amp section. This can be the main output IC, or any of the support components in this area.

White lines at top of av27230


Hi,

Your posted description is a known (common) problem for the JAV-27230 and should be easily repaired. The vertical capacitor (C424 - 100uf/35V) needs to be replaced. It is relatively cheap and can be bought from any electronics parts store.

in some instances, it could be the vertical IC starting to fail or even a simple case of cold solder.

As always, extreme care when repairing the insides of a TV unit since HV can still be present even when off and unplug. A little knowledge of electronic components and use of a soldering iron should do just fine. Should you not be comfortable doing a DIY, then perhaps you can ask the assistance of a buddy who has some soldering experience.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

good luck and kind regards.

Horizonal White Line


Your problem could be one of the common ones as this set has loads of bad solder connections. Your problem is most likly the verticle output IC connections or the B+ feed componets have bad solder connection on them. In some cases though the Output IC is defective and will need to be repalce. if you have no soldid state repair or soldering skills play it safe and get a pro to assist you in this repair. It should not cost you more then a hundred bucks or so and thats the high end. good Luck, And Merry christmas.
