Question about RCA 36V430T 36" TV

13 Answers

Kids can't get Wii or Xbox 360 games on this set

We plugged the "Wii" game console in the three plugs in front of the set, but could not find a way to get the game to come up on the set. How can this be done???

    We are on Direct TV and their remote control will not give us a source choice that we can find.

  • strussfamily Jan 08, 2009

    We are on Direct TV service and use their remote which comes with their cable box. This remote doesn't give a video source selection that we can find.

  • strussfamily Jan 08, 2009

    Thanks to Welcomjee...but in changing from Comcast to Direct TV recently and going to a Universal remote, we actually cannot find the original remote that came with the set. Can you do this manually with the TV's controls???

  • strussfamily Jan 08, 2009

    Thanks but we did this, systematically going from channel to chanel and disconnecting and re-connecting each time to make sure of the connection. I am an electrical engineer, and this has me stumped.

  • strussfamily Jan 08, 2009

    Your instructions for the Wii were done carefully, but please tell me on this set WHERE is the AV button that gives us the source choices on the front of the set. If you mean scroll through the channels, we did this from 1 through 20 and nothing. We have not plugged into the back because their previous little kiddy game cube worked from the from some time back, but we were able to use the original remote at that time. This is the dilemma.

  • strussfamily Jan 08, 2009

    Machine 83...many thanks, and I agree with you assessment of the Wii, BUT we play it all the time through our our grandkids' set in their house plugged into the front three plugs....but they are able to get a "Video 2" source and it plays. Our problem here is that we cannot find a way to get a Video 2 source on this set now.

  • strussfamily Jan 08, 2009

    Very well...so can one of you tell me if this model RCA set is compatible with the Wii???

Moving a little backwards here, but see it has not been suggested , call tech support for direct tv..they will walk you through the procedure..they have surely had this scenario many times to solve.. they can send tech service out to set you up for free if you tell then you will quit service if your kids cannot enjoy their systems...good luck

I think you have to get the code for your television.
Program your Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote for a TV loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Before you can use your Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote with a TV, you must program the remote control for use with the specific brand of the TV that you're using. You can manually enter the TV code, or you can perform a scan to find the TV code.

The Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote manual includes a code list that covers many popular TVs. For the most current list of TV library codes, please visit the following Web site: http://www.xbox.com/support (http://www.xbox.com/support) Note When you program your Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote, the remote control will exit the screen after 30 seconds of inactivity. Press any button except buttons 0 through 9, CH+, or CH– to return the remote control to the original settings.

To enter a TV code manually, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on the TV, and then point the remote control toward the TV.
  2. Press and hold the TV button and the OK button at the same time for two seconds. All the buttons on the remote control will illuminate for two seconds. Then, only the numeric TV buttons (1–12) remain illuminated.
  3. Enter the code for the TV.
  4. Press the TV button again to save the code and exit .
All the buttons on the remote control will blink three times to confirm your selection.

To scan for a TV code, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on the TV, and then point the remote control toward the TV.
  2. Press and hold the TV button and the OK button at the same time for two seconds. All the buttons on the remote control will illuminate for two seconds. Then, only the numeric TV buttons (1–12) remain illuminated.
  3. Press the CH+ button or the CH– button to send a series of off commands to the TV. Continue to press the CH+ button or the CH– button until the TV turns off.

    Note Give enough time for the TV to respond to the off command after you press each button. Some TVs take more time to react to off commands than other TVs.
  4. Press the TV button to save the code and to exit.
All the buttons on the remote control will blink three times to confirm the code.

NoteIf the remote control does not function correctly after you set the TV code, try a different code from the same TV manufacturer, or scan for another code.

You can only use the Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote with the Xbox 360 console, TVs, or a Windows XP Media Center computer. You cannot use the Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote with VCRs, DVRs, DVD players, or other audio equipment.

To find a code that will let your Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote operate your TV, visit the following Xbox Web site:http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemsetup/xbox360/accessories/universalmediaremote-controlcodes.htm

Hope this helps you.

Have you tried turning off just the cable box, and keeping it on the tv then try channel 3 or 0...also some remotes have a TV/DVD button that switches modes

  • Quickfx PC Repair Jan 08, 2009

    Without the original remote you may not be able to get to the video source selection . When your cable company made that remote with the cable box they probably weren't concerned about your video source button. Get a replacment remote http://tv.rca.com/en-us/contactus.html on RCA's website, write to them and tell them the model number they will reply with cost (will be cheaper than anywhere else, I looked around) I have also had to get a replacement remote from RCA and only cost me 10 dollars plus shipping.



  • Quickfx PC Repair Jan 08, 2009

    Yes it's compatible, can only use it as its been designed and you will have to get access to the video selection options in order to use the front component jacks.

The Wii is designed around a menu of "channels". There is of course the game-playing channel, where the Wii will play any Wii or GameCube game. Simply load the disc in and go. There is a Mii channel where you set up a profile and avatar to connect to all your game playing. The Photos channel lets you look at photos on your TV. Other channels for news, weather, and online shopping require an interent connection; the news and weather were not actually working at launch time.

The system does NOT have a regular network cable port, which both the PS3 and XBox 360 have. Instead, it works with built in wireless or with a USB network adapter. I am a firm proponent of wireless - less clutter! So I am thrilled that they offer wireless automatically. With the PS3, you have to pay extra for the 60 gig unit to get this built in. The XBox 360 requires extra hardware as well.

It's hard to generalize gameplay on any console - it really depends on what games you buy. That being said, the comes-with-it software of Sports is really quite fun and is about as basic as you can get. You swing at baseballs, lob tennis balls, bowl, box and play golf. A "fitness" mode puts you through a variety of tasks and then calculates your fitness age, sort of like how Brain Age keeps track of your mental age. If you did both every day, you could aim to be as fit mentally and physically as possible!

Ok make sure you have connected the Video/Audio cables in their appropriate holes (red to red etc)

Assemble the Wii assuring both the Power Pack and the Sensor bar are plugged in correctly

Turn the Wii console on (A green light will display on the console)

Go through your AV channels - This is generally done by pressing the TV/AV button on either your remote or TV's front panel.


If this does not work plug the cables into the rear of the TV as your front panel may not be functioning


Get back to me if you need further assistance I am glad to help;

    Hi there
    If you use a VCR with the TV set route the Xbox through the AV channel on the VCR as i doubt that the front panel on the TV has a source/AV option.
    The only other way is to get a universal remote that will work the TV settings

    Good luck

    Your TV will be compatible with the Wii, but you will need to get hold of the correct remote control so you can change the signal source to the correct one

Problems Go Through the Roof for Xbox 360 Vs. Wii


Here at FixYa, we have our community members solve problems dealing with all kinds of devices. I had a recent problem with my Xbox 360 and when I checked at the amount of problems associated with Video Games Console, I came to a surprising discovery:

Complaints about Xbox 360 Vs. Nintendo Wii

827af56.png
The Amount of Problems and Complaints about Xbox 360 is almost 3X the that of the Nintendo Wii.

Some might claim that the higher number of flaws in the 360 is due to the fact that it was introduced to the market a year and a half before the Wii, causing the average age of a 360 console to be older than the average Wii.

However this fact is somewhat offset when looking at the number of consoles out there – As of today there are 30% more Wii than Xbox360, much more Wii consoles to break down.

A 3X difference is really shocking, but I still thought it couldn't be as bad as it seemed. I thought the problems must be from people complaining about some trivial issues, but when I actually checked the Top problem on the Xbox, I found this:

3562989.jpg
The Red Circle Of Death:

Condition: When you turn on the Xbox you get a blank screen, a clack sound and 3 red lights on the front start that flash.

Result: Death. Or not being able to do anything with your Xbox.

Other frequent problems:

Showing picture but no sound – TV goes blank but you can still hear sound

2 red lights – XBOX turns off – Console is overheated and stops working.

Error E74 – Hardware malfunction – System hardware problem.

XBOX not reading Games – Lens gone bad.

Seriously? Those are some mean problems!

I checked what the Wii's Biggest Problem was:

Wii Remote doesn’t work:

Solutions: Resync it, Slap it or just Change the batteries…

704857d.jpg
Other frequent ones:

Forgetting password – Forgetting Secret question and password.

Ejecting disk – Disk tray doesn’t open up.

Unable to get into Wii Settings – Firmware issues.

It just comes to show you that the Xbox 360 is a beast and it has a lot of beast-sized problems while the Wii is a pretty simple machine.

The Wii scores another point; just feed it fresh batteries and it’s as reliable as a good old Atari!

How do i reactivate the wireless controller to my xbox 360


How to Configure an Xbox Controller Fotolia.com"> configure-xbox-controller-800x800.jpg Configure you Xbox controller.

The Xbox 360 utilizes two types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

  1. Wired
    • 1 Connect the controller's cable to the in-line release cord. This cord prevents you from accidentally pulling the Xbox 360 along with your controller during game play.
    • 2 Insert the in-line release cord's USB plug into the USB port on the front of the console.
    • 3 Turn on the console to activate the controller automatically.
    Wireless
    • 1 Insert batteries in your wireless controller, if necessary.
    • 2 Hold down the "Guide" button on the controller.
    • 3 Push the Xbox 360's "Connect" button, located on the front of the console.

no. you probably purchased the wrong mat. You need a mat for the Wii which plugs in the top of the Wii in the game cube ports. You probably purchased a xbox 360 or ps2 or ps3 one

I have an xbox 360 from the US and am now living in Ireland. Is there a plug that I can order to get power here and are the games purchased in Ireland compatable with the US console?


Games bought in Ireland are not compatible with your US console. So rather than buying a converter plug, you're better off buying a new Xbox 360 console. (Of course if you have brought games with you from the US these will ONLY work on your US console, meaning you need a plug. You should be able to find a converter in an electronics store.)
But do not forget that certain games are region free (meaning any console can play it, regardless of where the console was bought.
Just to warn you so you don't buy the same game for both your consoles, when you may not need to.
You can find a list of compatible games vs consoles here:
Region Free Xbox 360 Games
