Question about RCA F27450 27" TV

TV won't change channel

After a friend touched it (don't know what he did), TV stays on 1 channel (Global). It is connected to cable but, whatever channel the tv is tuned to, it is always the same channel appearing on screen. Remote control doesn't work anymore (except for sound) and controls on TV itself seem to work, but without effect. Could someone help ? Thanks, Michel P.S. Is there a way to find the user manual ?

How do you get your xbox 360 to play, on a 65'' mitubishi projection tv,its connected but nothing comes on screen when i put a movie in just a blank screen and no sound,if i'm on a channel,the channel...


Hello

The Xbox 360 connects to a TV using either

- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio

- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)

- HDMI

So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.

Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).

Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.

This should make the Xbox work.

When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.

TV will not display picture or sound except for 1 station which appears to be 440. I can't change the channel either at the dials or remote. The display says EAS.


DONT USE the remote that came with your TV

use the buttons on the box to change the channel. did the channel change?

usually when someone only has one channel its because they are changing the tv channel not the cable box channel

think of it like this:
the TV is a monitor and should always be on the same channel (3, 4, hdmi, or whatever) its actually the box that tunes and the tv always stays on the same channel.

so if you change the tv channel you are no longer watching the output of the cable box.

USE the remote supplied by your cable provider

My tv sanyo cm21kf81A, chassis number FC3-G221 has snow noise on all tv channels, but AV1 and AV2 play good sound


First check cable wire or whatever is connected to set for channels--the leads are connected and wiggle them with set on to see if it clears up--could be a connection where cable wire is connected at end--loose connection there etc.

If tuner is bad causing this and you use a box for signal--most have rear audio/video outputs you can connect to a unused video/audio input on rear of set---bypass the tuner in the set and operate set that way changing channels on box instead of set.

let me know if you have questions or have more information.

If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner

Yes the display settings need to be reset since he had HDTV and you don't. I do this by simply having the PS off then press power button and hold it for 5 seconds.

I have a visco TV and I cannot get it off of channel 1. The remote does not work so I bought a universal remote but it still won't work. I tried to codes for NEC and Polariod as suggested by others,...


There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. 
I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used?
Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well.

Sony KP-53XBR45 rear projection TV: Coax input Selector Antena part on rear has the AUX input 'male' connector but the TV/Cable 'male' connection end is missing. Is there a way to use the AUX or any other...


You can replace the connector or if you have a cable box with audio and video outputs on it---connect them into one of the sets of jacks on the back of the set--switch to that input and change channels with the box----you can also do the same thing with a VCR--hook the cable into it and use its video and audio output jacks to connect to the video and audio input on the back of the TV.

In this case (the VCR does not have to work except as a tuner) you will go to whatever input you connect to and use the VCR to change channels.

These are a little less easy to use but costs you nothing---I am here to help, if you have any questions or need help let me know.

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box


There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.

Dvd player


Hi, where you plug the dvd cables into the tv determines where the picture will be seen; Example, if you plug the dvd players yellow, red & white cable into the tv`s "input 1" then you go to the tv`s "input" or "tv/video" button and push those buttons to get "input 1" to come up on the screen and you`ll see the picture and hear the audio, it`s kinda like a file folder in your computer, you`ve got to find the file then open it to see the contents. If your tv is on channel 3 or 5 or whatever you won`t see the picture because the picture is in video not a tv channel
