Question about RCA 27F530T 27" TV

YPbPr inputs not working

I have a 27F530T and an Xbox 360. When I plug the Xbox into the TV's YPbPr ports, all I get is a box on the TV saying "Unusable Signal," but the sound still works. I know that the problem is not with the cables or the console, because I have hooked the Xbox into the YPbPr on my Samsung TV with no problems, but the RCA TV is giving me no picture at all. I have also tried fooling with the Xbox resolution settings to no avail. I would try plugging the Xbox into the TV using the single yellow plug as opposed to the YPbPr inputs, but I use a monster Xbox cable that has no yellow plug, only the YPbPr (a real pity). Thanks.

Re: YPbPr inputs not working

Hi there. I might add my 2 cents here. On the back of the TV, video2 is both composite, component and audio jacks, all at the same input. So you say 'the screen says CVideo2 instead of just Video2, so I believe the TV recognizes the difference'. You're right. Now, are you sure the component cable you're using on the xbox is good ? You could try to connect only the green connector of the component cable to the yellow composite RCA video input of the Video2 input, and see if it displays any video. Else, i'd try to reset the xbox 360 video settings of the dashboard to defaults; here's intructions on how to do it : To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, remove any discs from the disc tray. Turn the console off and turn it back on. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings, and then automatically restarts the console. Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller will have the upper-left quadrant light illuminated. Hope that helps a bit. Thanks, cheebster.

Re: YPbPr inputs not working

Tacz, What video input# on the back of the TV is your component video?? Are you sure the TV is set to look at that video input#??? You may be looking at one of the composite video inputs as far as the TV is concerned and with nothing plugged in to that input the TV would naturally give the error message you indicated. Let me know.. Bill

HOW DO YOU HOOK AN XBOX 360 TO Emerson EWF2004 20

This TV has composite and S-video inputs (limiting you to SD outputs from the XBOX). Since the XBOX 360 only has an HDMI output, you will need the XBOX to composite AV cable. (There is also an XBOX to S-video cable.) This adapter is sold separately from the XBOX. has the composite video cable for $8 plus shipping here: . It will be more expensive at any retail electronics store.

The manual for the Emerson EWF2004 is available from Funai, which built the TV for the Emerson line, . The direct link to the manual is . Note: you need the original remote or a universal remote that has a Source or Input button (with the correct code) to change inputs. There is no Input button on the TV.

I hope this helps.

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.

Video does not work I have an hdtv with comcast cable When I try to program I can not get the xbox 360 to wrk

When you try to program what??? usually you connect the XBOX OUTPUT to the same INPUT on the TV (RF ch 4 or 3), (RCA) yellow, white, red connectors or the RGB connectors, and for some newer 360 boxes you have the HDMI connector, it has nothing to do with the COMCAST CABLE unit... it is just a matter of having the correct cable/connections and the correct input set on the TV...

Good luck!

How do u turn on the s video

If you have S-Video port on your TV, surely there is a configuration setting that allows you to do it.
Look for a Key that says A/V or AV for audio video. It allows you to select the input to the TV, namely S-Video, YPBPR, AV, or what have you?

Once you select S-Video, you must connect the TV to the S-Video port on your computer. Then you divert the screen output to the TV (or extend your desktop to the TV)

Hope it helps.

Game mode on tv

If you have a HDTV then you need to change the resolution to 720i or 720p to support the XBox 360 HD video. If you have a standard TV (non-HD) then you'll need to change your XBox 360's video settings to non-HD. The problem sounds like your mixing up HD video signal. I really need more info about your TV. Is it HD? Or regular?
