Question about RCA 27V530T 27" TV

Open Question

Guide Plus on 32in RCA stopped working

Is there a solution to the getting the Guide plus to work again. I have tried setting it up numerous times and it keeps telling me that no show information is available at this time. What can I do? Guide Plus stopped working completely. 32" TV. Installed in RV. Was hooked to cable at the time. Have tried "over the air" and digital converter box, no help. Have tried Yuma Az, Sacramento Ca, and Reno Nv. Seems like the service has been discontinued by whoever supplies it. I have a RCA 27" with Gude Plus+ Gold. It worked great until last week, and now doesn't list the program listings. I checked to be sure the G-Link wand is in the correct place, but, still no guide. I hope this feature is not going away because of the upcoming HD takeover. Any other ideas what I might be doing incorrectly?

    I have a RCA 27" with Guide Plus+ Gold using Comcast cable service. The guide appears with no listings. This may be due to the mandated switch from analog to digital transmission. Does anyone know if this problem will be resolved?

    I have Guide Plus software that came with my ATI video card.
    I haven't been able to get a listings update since around that time (last week of 2008)

    I got the same problem as you guys.Mine just stopped around Feb.1.I have a RCA 20".I have had this TV in the bedroom for 9 years and the Guide Plus has never let me down even once...until now.Like someone else mentioned,its got to be because of the switch-over to digital.I'm already missing it badly.It was very accurate and it beat the heck out of trying to see whats on by going to that stupid TV Guide channel.Goodbye Guide Plus,I'll miss you buddy.

Hello. Unplug your set from the wall for two full minutes and then plug it back in and try it again. This will reset it. If that does not do it, call your service provider. J.

Using RCA P61939 without Guide Plus


Guide plus still works even if you don't have the wand hooked up. In the setup section of the guide plus there are several questions that must be answered properly or it won't function as you would like. It maybe labeled as options as well. Thanks

Guide Plus on RCA television


My guide quit working also on my RCA 61" big screen and I called the cable company and he said something about the encryption data had changed and I needed to call RCA to find out what to do and the whole time trying to sell me a converter box. It is the cable company's fault or the guide wouldn't have put that message up to start with. We all need to call the FCC!!!

Help me remove the Guide Plus Grid on my RCA television


Simply enter 00000 for the zip code and complete the set up process; if you're in Canada, select the USA as your country and use the zip. However, you MUST complete the set up, including allowing the TV to search for appropriate code. In the long scheme of things, location and codes don't really matter because you won't see the GUIDE again.

Either the hardware has failed or your cable system or broadcasters do not provide this information. Frankly, with this chassis you should be glad it works at all.

RCA 27" TV Guide Plus


If you have the set off, and the cable plugged into the back of the set for a day or so, the guide plus should come back. It will sometimes take up to 48 hours. If it does not, there is a problem with the set and will require servicing. Good Luck

Guide Plus Demo


I have serviced lots of these, and as far as I know the CTC203 chassis has nothing like this, nor did anything made by Thomson before or since, so I am mystified. Adjustments are made with the remote or the front panel buttons using software and there are no "pins," test connectors, switches, or anything similar present on it. Usually the Guide Plus stops working entirely (which is nice for most users, as it is just an annoyance). Now if you unplug your TV for long enough for its microprocessor to reset, it will start with the Guide Plus screen. This is by design and can't be stopped without modification. Corruption of the set's internal program causing something strange like this is possible, but unlikely. (It was a problem on earlier models). Leave your TV plugged in and see if this problem goes away. If this is not the cause, you will have to take it in for service. Any demo modes can be turned on or off with the remote or the buttons on the set.
