It sounds like you need to auto program the chanels on your t.v. There should be an opition in your menu. If there is not something called auto program or channel manager it my be in your set-up menu. I hope this helps.

My rca hd52w58 on autoscan will only find 4hannels MY Visio fines 38 suspect digital tuner any suggeationas?


Could be a tuner but a simple way to find out is DIRECT ENTER with the remote (numbers) a channel and hit enter---if it goes to missing channel you can manually in the menu with the remote ADD each missing channel one at a time--tedious but will rule the tuner out.

Almost every set made is able to add or delete channels one at a time.

RCA Projection P52937SG Continually changes channels and wont respond to controller


This is an older set but I have two questions:

Is the set actually changing channels up or down or are the number for the channel doing that while set remains on same channel?

Two possible problems, some of these also had the Guide Plus Logo on the front of the set.

If I know which issue you have I can help.

What's your problem?Won't stop changing channels


Hello,

there is every possibility that the channel (ch - and ch +) button on the TV is stuck. This can make the TV channels change by itself. This also applies to the remote control (if any).

Turn off the TV, use your thumb to flip through the channel (ch - and ch +) button on the TV. This will free the stuck button. Also, check the channel (ch - and ch +) buttons on the remove and make sure it is also not stuck in.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then it means fault is from the control board inside the TV. It maybe defective or needs servicing.

The board controls the buttons on the TV and it can be found on the position of the channel (ch - and ch +) inside the TV.

Note that TV stores a lot of current. So if you want to disassemble the TV to check the board allow the current to discharge by remove the TV plug from the wall and wait for about 1 hour before attempting to disassemble the TV.

Let me know if you need more assistance...

Regards.

RCA TV won't change channels


Your set uses the 195 series chassis and you have something set wrong in your guide plus. Go into the TV's menu and do a complete set-up. Take the remote and press MENU, then "8" to enter setup, then press "1" for "begin setup now" and then press "1" for English, and so on. You must enter "set up guide plus+", then press OK on the remote to choose "setup", select "USA", enter your zip code, and then if you choose "yes" for "do you have cable?" you MUST then choose "no" for "do you have a cable box" If you choose "yes" for that choice, your tuner will lock on one channel no matter what channel you try entering. After choosing "no" for "do you have a cable box", choose "no" for "do you have a VCR?", exit the guide plus menu and then skip the rest of the steps by pressing "2", and then exit the main menu by pressing "0". Your channels will then work normally.

Remote not working


Hi Suzanne. What you need to do first is get or have the original RCA remote available. next, go into the menu and do whats called a channel search, but you will need an antenna or cable line attached to the RF input of the TV set, Do whats called an auto search. Let the set complete its cycle. If it found no channels, then there is no input sourch or you have a bad tuner or its assoicitated componets. it should be in the owners manual on how to do this. If you do not have an owners manual, get one here http://www.thomsonnetwork.com/EN/Public/InstructionBook/IBSearchResults?querytext=P5292*&brands=RCA%2cGE%2cPROSCAN%2cRECOTON%2cSPIKEMASTER%2cAR%2cJENSEN%2cAMBICO%2cADVENT%2cUNBRANDED&doctypes=IB&categories=ACCESSORIES%2cAUDIO%2cCOMMUNICATION%2cDTVS%2cDVD%2cMULTIMEDIA%2cCOLOR_TV%2cVIDEO&firstdocnum=1 If you need a new remote or original replacement please go to http://remotes.com Good Luck please do not forget to rate this thread.
