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

I recently bought an Xbox 360 and plugged it into the back of my TV. However, the TV refuses to show anything from the Xbox 360. I tried Autoprogramming it, and it erased all of my channels except for 1,...


MOST of their older sets are set up where the AV inputs are channels 90-93 ; if you had no signal other than the game the set will skip all those channels out.

If you have a working remote for it direct enter 90-93 one at a time .

Nothing hooked to cable fitting means set will see no signal and skip them out when auto program is engaged.

Who to do set up for wii game


  1. The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most TVs or VRCs. First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well. If you are unable to find a set of yellow, red, and white AV inputs on the back of your TV, try looking on the sides, top, and bottom of the TV. Look for any hidden panels or doors as well.


    Connecting to a Television
    • Audio/Video (AV) inputs are typically located on the back of the TV, but occassionally are on the sides, top, or bottom.
    • Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
    • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.
    • Don't see these inputs on your TV? Click here.


    1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console

  2. Insert the DC plug on the Wii AC Adapter cord into the DC Input connector on the back of the Wii console.


  3. Insert the AC plug into a 120V AC wall outlet

    CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match the wide blade of the plug to the wide slot and insert fully into the outlet.

  1. Plug the transformer into the wall outlet.

The Sensor Bar can be placed either above or below your TV screen. Decide which option best fits you and click the image below for additional set up help, including mounting the Sensor Bar and proper alignment.

Just got the Zenith model B25A02Z for my kids and went to plug in their Nintendo Wii to it. I can't find any RCA connectors on the TV. Can't seem to plug in anything except a cable wire. How can I get...


On a TV that doesn't have any A/V inputs, you'll need an RF converter. This device takes the audio and video signals from a source such as your game, and makes a channel 3 or 4 signal that can be tuned in by the set. Converters are available in the TV accessories section of big-box retailers, at Radio Shack, and from many places online. They cost around $20.

Hooking up a converter is easy. You just plug in the A/V cables from the game, connect the output cable to the TV's antenna jack and plug in its power supply (it needs power). There's a connector on the converter to hook up your cable wire again since you have to disconnect it from the TV. It sounds like more trouble than it really is. Maybe 10 minutes.

Happy gaming, and thanks for using Fixya!

How to get wii game to work on tv i have a sylvania tv


The Wii console should have included a cable to plug into the AV Multi-out Connector. This cable has the plug for the Wii on one end, and three RCA plugs on the other. They are color-coded yellow for the video output, and red and white for right and left channel audio outputs. These plugs would go into the corresponding RCA input jacks on your TV (if it has them), and you would select that input using the TV remote or front panel buttons.

If your TV doesn't have A/V inputs, you need to get an RF converter. This device takes the A/V signals from the Wii and converts it to a signal on channel 3 or 4 so you can tune it in on your TV. These cost around $15 at Wal-Mart and other retailers.

If you have lost your Wii connecting cable or didn't get one, you can order replacements from online vendors.
