Question about RCA B27TF680 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
Hello,My tv will not get our local stations 2,3,4,5,6 etc. I have cable and it recieves all the cable channels but not the local ones.I have checked and the channels are not blocked.the vcr will not play either.I removed the cable from the vcr and hooked it directly to tv and still same results.My other tv's work fine so its not a cable issue.
Hi, Based on your post/description, it would appear that the TV tuner of the RCA is at fault. Chances are the the VHF Low is not working right but the VHF High is. This is an inshop repair probably requiring component replacement. You may want to confirm by checking your TV's setup in the menu, you should have Cable selected instead of Air or STd and do a Memory + (scan and add channels). If still a no go, then back to the tuner suspect. The VCR will not display any movie since it normally transmits in Channel 3 (which is VHF Low). If there are no other problem with the VCR then you might still be able to use it by connection it to the A/V inputs of the TV. If the VCR works in A/V mode, then perhaps you may want to save the repair expense of the RCA TV and use the tuner of the VCR to watch TV and switch channels. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
