RCA projection television INPUT problem

I have had my television for about a month and everything has worked fine. Yesterday I switched the channel over to VID2 which is where it has always been for the DVD player, but instead of my DVD I get whatever channel I was on with the audio of the DVD player. Also if I change to VID1 or Front the televsion picture is on instead of a blank screen. Any idea what might have caused this, and is there a way to fix it without new parts? Any information would be very much appreciated. Thank You! -Jeremy Hester

The component connections are usually video only and the audio goes to separate connectors set aside for that input. Check your manual to make sure you have all the connections made.

remove the speaker grille. then there should be a few screws running along the bottom of the screen frame. after removing those screws slide the entire fram up to release the hooks that hold the screen frame to the cabinet. Be careful and unhook the wire clip from the front control panel once the screen frame is loose before you stretch the wires.

How do you switch on input with no remote control?

Channel down past channel 3..... however if the tv moves back to 99 or back around to 3, you must have a remote because this is the way the manufacturer made the tv.

Rca hdtv channel changed by mistake

RCA channel setup and selection is not easy to understand. You may try to add channel 3 on the add/remove channel section. If that doesn't work try pressing the input button. Good Luck.

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC

RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.

Starts running thru channels and inputs

The Micro switches are leaky. They are soldered on the control panel in the front. Either replace the panel or the switchs. You can test this by unsoldering all the switchs and leaving the IR Sensor. You can control the set by using the remote remote . If this help let me know.

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".

RCA 60" projection tv Turns on and starts flipping channels by it self

replace the keyboard or remove the switches for channel up/down to see which one is bad. if neither does it, there are some components around the microprocessor that can cause this.
