Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

1 Answer

Input jack I lost cable reception and called the cable guy who messed around with the remote and by a fluke, it worked until he got out of the driveway. I did nothing but move the input jack and board a little and it worked about a week. Now, and since, I'm stuck in cspan on channels up to 50, and the history channel on any channel above that. Your input would be greatly appreciated.(No pun intended) Thanks, David

Sounds like a problem with the tuner in your set. Probably not an economical repair. What you can do is if you have a VCR kicking around, connect it to one of the video inputs on the back of the set and run the cable into the VCR then set the TV for the appropriate video input and tune in the channels with the VCR.
Oh, and I kinda like the pun.

On a new tcp60u50 hdmi 1 doesn,t work what should I do?


HDMI is the future USB of Audio/Video signals. No more scrambled messes of cables. I would go into your setup program & label HDMI/1 with either "Cable" or "Antenna" or "Satelite" or "Blu-Ray" for what ever you are feeding it with. Your component connections would be used most likely for a "Game Console". Then, on your remote you'll see a source button, flip thru the various inputs until you get to whatever is feeding HDMI/1. Make sure that your input TV channel is set to either 3 or 4. From that point on, your Video Source remote will deal with its functions. Rember, with Plasma, LCD & LED TVs, you no longer need the Digital Converter Box for DTV signals. Mine did not work initially, but after the newness wore off, I went back, more slowly & corrected the minor extra tweaks required. -DellTech1

How to change sylvania tv to video without remote


I was able to get the Sylvania TV to accept a different input (the remote was lost) by connecting the DVD to a Sony VCR using composite RCA jacks then connecting that to the TV. You'll need two 3-jack (yellow, white, red composite) cables - cheap at any store. Here;s how:
1. Connect RCA output jacks from the DVD to the input female receptacles of the VCR (first cable).2. Connect output jacks from VCR to the female input jacks on TV (second cable). 3. Turn on all equipment (VCR, DVD, TV)4. Switch the VCR to "Line 1" (for my Sony VCR, this shows up as "L1") by pressing the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote (which I did have).
Your system should now work.
The principle is to "fool" the TV into thinking that it's primary input is through the RCA composite A/V jacks rather than the cable connection. No need to disconnect the cable at any time. Any functioning VCR should work well as long as you have the remote for that device. Remember, connect output on the DVD to the input on the VCR, then the output on the VCR to the input jacks on the back of the TV. If you have the connectors on the TV, VCR, and DVD, component cables should work as easily. Remember, output from the DVD goes to the input of the VCR. Theoutput from the VCR (for which you DO have the remote) goes to the input side of the TV.
Good luck!

I just got a new 26" Westinghouse TV, and the screen says "No Channels in List" and when I search for channels, it is not finding any.


What type of antenna are you using? Or what is your source for accessing channels? (i.e. - are you connecting to a cable tv service box or are you using a receiver ect.) Make sure that your source is connected to the input method that you are currently using on the tv.

There are many input methods to choose from in the settings of the tv. They are generally called antenna 1, antenna 2, cable, aux, hdmi - and a few other names. There should be a button on your remote to change them. The function is usually called "source" or "input". Press that button to change the input method until you get a picture on the tv or pick up some sort of reception. when you have the tv set on the same method of input that your antenna source is connected to, you will get channel reception or some sort of picture. Thats when you use the menu functions to auto find channels for you and let it go through its checking scan to report how many it has picked up.

If its running the scan for channels and not locating any stations, and the picture is either scrambled with the white noise sound tv's make when off channel or if its just single color screen without any sound - then you know the antenna input method you have chosen on the back of the tv is not the current method set in the settings under the menu key.

Most of the time the inputs are labeled on the back. If you look under the cable antenna connection, it should say "cable" somewhere in small print - or "antenna 1 input", antenna 2 ect. Look on the back of the tv. If you are using RCA jacks that are labeled right and left for sound and a third connector for video ect, look for the name of the input method of those three connections on the back of the tv. It should be marked as input - aux 1 ect. Then just change the source chosen in the tv to match it and have it auto program your channels.

TV only works on HD stations


Your TV has an SD/ED component input and an HD component input. You are using the HD input. It can only accept HD signals. You need to correct the settings in you cable box. You need to "fix" the video output so that it converts everything to HD. If you have a motorola box, you can usually turn the box off and press the menu button to access the cable box setup menu. Set the 4:3 override to Stretch or Full. If you need more help with this, post back with more information: cable provider, cable box used. I hope this was of some assistance.

Magnavox tv has cable channels 2-13 only. Lost original remote. Using a universal remote. Tried to auto program. It started scanning but when channel 14 came around, just fuzzy snowy picture all through...


The set needs to be switched from antenna to cable in the setup menu. It is capable of either antenna reception or cable reception. Ch 2-14 are the same frequency for antenna and cable but above 14 they are different. That is why the picture is stoping at 14. After you switch it to cable auto program again. Thanks for using fixya.

How do I replace the IR remote sensor on my LG TV?


My LG TV stopped responding to the remote. A very helpful repair technician told me to stick a head phone jack in the sensor jack on the back of the TV a few times to clean out the contacts. Now the remote control works fine.

I just got a new tv, and have hooked it up to my Directv receiver per their phone helpdesk person's instructions. I can't get the channels to auto-program on the tv - it keeps telling me there's no signal....


How are you connecting the receiver to the television? RCA cables? HDMI? Coax cables?

Auto tune only works if you are connecting via coax and plan to use channel 3/4 to view. If you are using either HDMI/Coax/Component/etc, then you would need to use the input button on your television remote (Not the DirecTV remote, the one that came with your television) to toggle through the various inputs until you find the signal from the DirecTV receiver.

Sylvania vcr/dvd installation


!st) The antenna INPUT::RF (black wire usually from "cable TV", "Dish TV", even ANTENNA air wave reception,etc.) into INPUT of VCR\DVD, OUTPUT of VCR\DVD to TV RF input.
2nd) If you have INPUT\OUTPUT to what are called " RCA " jacks on your TV, on the front or on the back, then any & all output jacks from VCR\DVD goes to INPUT\OUTPUT of the TV.
In other words:: output of audio on VHS\DVD to input of audio on TV( RCA jacks). Output of video on VHS\DVD to input of video (RCA jacks)
Hope this helps

Troubleshooting vcr


Usually one connects a RF [cable tv, Dish tv, antenna ] cable to the INPUT of VCR & a RF cable output to tv (antenna )INPUT .The reason is that if you are watching TV reception (Cable, Dish, etc) and you want to watch VCR tape, just push the tape in and it should start playing picture.
From what I understand that you are trying to say:: [ YOUR NEW TV ! ] you MUST connect to the RCA jacks, CABLE S with RCA plugs that come out of the VCR to the new TV [ INPUT & OUTPUT] jacks .When you ["" use input botton on VCR remote"" ] you are using a DIFFERENT input signal. You are not letting the TV know that you are changing the signal from RF(antenna, Cable, Dish,etc)to the RCA signal ["" I use my input botton on my vcr remote""]
