Question about Projection Televisions

5 Answers

Despite telephone assistance from both the store that sold us our RCA TV set (Hill's Tv., Burlington, Ont.) AND the 800 number provided for Guild Plus assistance, we have been unable to re-activate our guide plus system (after 8 years of happy use). The first choice would be to find a way to reactivate our guide plus system; the second option is to find a way to de-activate it so we can record programs in the normal way with our VCF. At the moment, the guide plus seems to override the other option. We have been without this service for over 3 months, so we need a solution as soon as possible.

    I accept, reluctantly, the news that because of a faulty "chip," my guide plus system no longer works. However, it is still preventing me from recording programs on a VCR in the old fashioned way. So, HOW DO I DISCONNECT the Guide Plus System so I can do something else on the same RCA TV?
    Look forward to a response.

This is the processing chip that has failed. the bad news is, this part has been discontinued and there is no aftermarket replacement. Once this chip fails, there will be no way to control the core user interface. sorry for this unfortunate news.

I have a rca r401a1 universal remote i am trying to get to control a APEX television set, no longer have universal codes


I have an RCA conversion guide but do not find an APEX or Insignia TV conversion code listed. It does, however, list a HELP LINE of 1-800-269-9143 for additional set up assistance. If you have already replaced the remote with another, I am looking for an RCA R404A1 remote as I've lost the one to my RCA tv so I might be in the market. jas64075@hotmail.com

RCA HD65W20


The rca ITC 222 chassis is a shutdown prone set. What i mean by that is that any problem with any cuircit the processor shut the thing down. thers about 20 or 25 different things that can lead to a shutdown. THe first thing they tell you to do is to shut the thing down and uplug for about 30 min. i personally never seen this work. but it is the first thing to try. Next thing to know is that if the light on front panel comes on its not the main fuse. the processor is recieaving power enough to generate error codes. technicians have a special computer interface to read these codes from the processor. which leads me to finale thing these sets is what i like to call value sets there about 800 new if the set has crt prob you cn expect about 300 to 500 to fix so most time not cost effective to fix
