Question about RCA F20TF10 20" TV

1 Answer

RCA works fine when watching dvd but when cable is hooked up...

I have an RCA F20TF10 20" Tru Flat Guideplus TV and it works fine when watching a dvd but when the cable is hooked up it makes loud popping noises and the screen goes out and comes back on rapidly. I've noticed that it gets worse the longer we have it on, but only when watching cable. It works fine when it is hooked up to our dvd player to watch a dvd. Tried to hook the cable up through the VCR, but the RCA Ports on both the front and back of the tv are not receiving video. I am guessing that the only reason the dvd player will work is because it hooks up through S-video but our dvd player doesn't have a port to hook cable up through. PLEASE HELP!

Rca tru flat tv has a red picture

Is your video input (from cable or satellite or fiber optic, etc.) coming from a coaxial cable, a component cable (red, green, and blue connectors), or an RCA cable (yellow connector for video)?

If you can, try an alternate input method and see if that makes a difference. Does it happen when watching DVDs or tapes, or when playing video games, or just when watching television?

Hooking up DVD/VCR combo to directTV and console RCA

I'd first just hook up the DVD/VCR to the TV and get that working. I'm assuming all you need is the standard cable type connection. This will at least your 4 year old happy. Then you can experiment with the S cable. The S cable will give a cleaner signal from the DVD to the TV. then hook up audio and video cables from the Direct TV to the DVD input. The audio and video will be cleaner using S cables and audio and video cables, but stadard TV cable should get you going. You didn't mention what model DVD player you have. You may have to select the correct inout on the DVD for the Direct TV connection.
