There are many color short horizontal lines (R,G,B) above the picture on the screen. Someone can tell me how to suppress them or how to make them less visible when watch a movie. It is my first set-up on 1271.
Most likely it is the AKB from the CRT's if it isn't fully aligned. Blanking will not cover the AKB line(s)- 1 Red, 1 Green and 1 Blue. There is enough space between the CRT face and lens assembly to slide or fix something between there to cover it. There is a way to disable it, but it is not worth the trouble.
What source are you using? My Toshiba SD-9100 puts a few short horizontal lines just above the actual DVD picture area on it's 480p output for some reason on my RPTV, but they are hidden by both overscan and blanking adjustment. My SD-9100 also outputs an incorrectly-shielded Y signal which causes problems at the top of the raster, and might be the cause of these lines as well.
The Sony 9000ES had a similar issue which was resolved by installed a filter on the Y output, and I was able to help the situation considerably by adjusting a pair of Y low-pass filter pots found on the output board inside my SD-9100. Maybe your issue is similar to these?
Thank for replies. My source is Toshiba 3109 and connect with S-video. I play with blanking and can hide shorts lines and now have a long line wide as the screen but it is acceptable. Is it normal or not ?
The long line is the AKB circuit doing it's job. It is tracking tube wear over time to keep the color accurate. This line is above the picture and will disappear in your screen masking that frames your screen (If you are using one)
