    RCA F26040WN 27" TV manufactured May 1990

    Sound and picture are okay and then cut out intermittently to a light
    grey screen with white lines running about 1" apart slightly off the
    horizontal with no sound.

    Returns to normal after varying times with power on or off. If you
    turn the TV on after turning it off there is a horizontal white line
    on a black screen that pops open to the grey screen.

    I googled the group and it appears to be a cold solder joint
    someplace. Any suggestions?

    I'm normally a hobbyist pinball reapair person. I have a temperature
    controlled soldering station and was trained in military years ago for
    soldering and basic troubleshooting. Mainly we did swap outs and then
    scoped out the offending board.
