Question about RCA E13309 13-Inch Diagonal XL-100¿ Color Television Television

1 Answer

Blurry picture moved tv yesterday into new et stand and everything is functioning fine but the picture is slightly out of focus on all channels. I have DirectTV and checked all connections and they seem to be fine. I also called them for troubleshooting and they said something (should have written it down) about my tv input and some letters...HI08? sorry. She said it was on her sheet for troubleshooting and it wasn't the satellite. I must have hit a button on my tv that changed my settings. My TV says RCA xl 100 stereo/commercial skip on the front of it. I don't know the serial but can crawl behind it if needed.

    The dvd picture is fine so do you think it's the satellite after all? I will try your solution tonight and get back to you. I just realized that if my dvd player is crisp and clear, it must be the satellite. We'll see. Thanks.

Try to reset first if nothing happens we proceed another solution;

Resetting the TV

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 6 order to dessipitate the charge current.
2. Unplug any connected devices (Satellite, DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

Hi, I have a GPX Model TVP5 port. tv/am/fm combination. Radio plays, TV has no picture; has 10 "C" Batteries.It's portable. TV won't play. Why? what do I need to do?

Most everything is digital now. There are very few analog OTA stations left. If you do not have a analog station nearby then the t.v. will not pick anything up.

First of all, you can get a replacement antenna without too much difficulty. You will just have to match the diameter and tip. Yes the set will stop functioning once the cutover occurs in February 2009. At that time the broadcasts will be fully digital and the analog tuner in your unit will no longer work.

We can't get any channels to tune in with the over the air antenna.

I solved this problem by purchasing an external indoor HD TV antenna. Once I plugged it into the TV, I received approx 20 channels, picture and sound are fine. The antenna that comes with the TV appears to work only when you are located quite close to the source of the TV signals.

New auria tv with antenna will not stay on any of the number 61 channels like 61.1 through 61.4. Other channels are fine.

You are pointing your antenna on the wrong direction.Move it around until you find the strongest signal. When you did the channel scan, the box (or tv) detected a signal but since it is to weak now, it will not display it.

With a cable or DTV converter box hooked up, the only channel the TV will find is channel 3 or 4 (depending on how the box is set). Make sure the set is on the right channel and you should be OK. Also make sure the cable is good. If you have several TV's connected to the same source you might have a bad cable or splitter somewhere in the chain. Hope this helps!
