If the TV is usually viewed on channel 3.
On the remote control (original RCA TV remote) manually enter the digits 0 and 3 -the tv should display 03 and work - if this dosn't work plug three wires from the back of the satellite box which say out to tv - video and audio left right. plug the othe end to video/audio input 1 on the TV (matching the colors then press the video (or source button ) on the remote. Be sure the satelite is on (green light is on)
Somehow you have enabled the Closed Captioning mode. Work your way through the menus to turn it off and the problem will be resolved. The channels that come in normally are not transmitting the closed captioning information, thus no CC black box.
Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.
