Hello,
CRT RPTV's really require constant maintenance and with the plummeting of HDTV's prices, with this set, the juice might not be worth the squeeze. Now if it was a Pioneer Elite CRT RPTV, I would think it would be worth the cost of having it repaired.

Mitsubishi makes really cheap DLP RPTV's which are tiny compared to your RCA and are available for under 1 thousand Dollars if you look around. No more having to deal with convergence of the 3 tubes, etc. The only negative is the replacement of the bulbs.

If there is a shop that specializes in CRT RPTV's in your area, it might be worth having a repairman come out. But the costs are high.
Cheers,
JJ

I agree with Jack, it could be time for an upgrade! Surf the forums and do some research on some newer models. There is a wealth of knowledge here!

This is likely a common bad solder connection and is not very costly at all, particularly if he does it himself like he said he wanted.

Wlcome to Home Theater Shack, point. Like Mike said, post the info in a new thread in the RCA forum and we will point you in the right direction.

My bad. I did not realize he was planning to physically fix it beyond going into the service menu. Might need to brush up on my reading comprehension skills.
