Connection for digital signal box

1985 rca xl100 25" plus or minus early american cabinet model, does not have remote control. This set still works off of rabbit ears and I have never signed up for cable or satellite tv. I bought the signal box and it has cables to hook to the tv but the tv set doesn't have the right connection to plug the cables in. Is the tv too old for modern technology?

How do i get a rca 20v500a model tv to input mode


This TV has no TV/AV selection button at its front panel controls. You should have a remote control to select its inputs.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability.
Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.
Type in the "brand name" of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window and press Enter. It will make surf easy.

.I have 60 inch rca guide plus big screen tv control buttons don't work correctly


Replace the batteries.....use the matching process in your manual to make sure the controller and tv are matched up....check the tv settings by using your buttons on the tv...to make sure it hasn't been set to function manually...and not to respond to any remote controls....replace the remote controller....make sure the receiver eye or sound collection area of your tv is not covered by a drape or decoration of some sort...and clear and free of obstacles to communicate with the remote controller.....make sure the tv and cable box are correctly plugged into the electrical receptacle and to each other.....you may have to program your remote control to control your cable box too...instructions in your manual....or call the cable company and they will set your cable box controller to control your tv ......step by step over the phone.....it could be a high number of other things...like your neighbors remote interfering or the hamm radio guy down the street interfering.....but there are a few basic things to check out before calling a tv repair guy to come and get you working.

Good luck and I hope I was some help.

How to tune channels on a 14 inch RCA tv?


You need a good set top box, either Hi definition or standard Pal, to make any CRT Television work. These days, non digital TV do work well but they no longer accept analog signals, but when connected to a set top box that receives digital signals, the box converts the digitals signals to analo and sends then to the RCA inputs of your TV and not via an antenna connected to the set top box and the TV.

It is possibly a selection that can be made as part of initial set up but without a remote you won't be able to make that selection.

your problem is likely the universal remote will not enter the menu and engage the auto program this set has--if it does and finds nothing either no signal or a bad tuner in the set.

If set has audio video jacks see if a DVD etc works on them--can always hook up signal to those inputs to bypass the problem.

Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.

Guide Plus on RCA television


My guide quit working also on my RCA 61" big screen and I called the cable company and he said something about the encryption data had changed and I needed to call RCA to find out what to do and the whole time trying to sell me a converter box. It is the cable company's fault or the guide wouldn't have put that message up to start with. We all need to call the FCC!!!
