You will need to have the tuner unit replaced or have the entire main board replaced. If you have a digital box or sky box then you could simply connect up with a scart or hdmi cable to the AV or HDMI inputs, this would mean you don't need to use your antenna connection & you can then select the channels from the box.

Has sound. Why does screen go black?


this can be caused by numerous issues from internal problems to input issues If it happens while you are using an antenna input, and you lose picture it is internal. If it works on antenna but not on one of the other inputs it MAY be the cable. if you put it on the settings menu, and it goes black (the menu) definitely internal. Now the question is, is it worth the repair or replacement, this depends on screen size, and if you have a warranty on it. repair cost can exceed replacement cost on many of these, and the age, again, can make a cheaper newer unit a good option due to a better display. (also check it on a computer to see if it goes black, as well as on a different input, one input can be bad)

Have inherited RCA television with AV input on back, but remote and using buttons on TV allow only channels 4 and 7 to be be seen. How do you make televsion recognize AV input from back? RCA model F20600...


Bring up your video menu, make sure the cable/antenna mode is set correctly. Also do channel search/ auto program. If your AV is operating a DVD player etc., there should be a button to switch from TV to AV. If you are trying to input Cable/Antenna to AV jack you may have it plugged into wrong jack, it should go into 'antenna/cable in' jack. Hope this helps.

I tripped over my amp chord while it was in, and now my amp wont make any sound at all. any suggestions?


First, try a different cable. Often in this kind of accident, the connection is broken between the wires in the cable and the plug on the end of the cable. (The cable can often be repaired by soldering the wires back onto the plug.)

If that doesn't help, it's possible the input jack on your amp was damaged. It is a relatively simple job for an amp technician to repair or replace an input jack if this is the problem. Expect about 1 hour of labor and about $10 in parts.

Probe for cable/antenna is broken


Try another connection for an input such as the rca jacks or possibly hdmi. These should work even if that part of the set is broken. Good luck and please dont forget to rate me if this fixes the set!!!

!st) The antenna INPUT::RF (black wire usually from "cable TV", "Dish TV", even ANTENNA air wave reception,etc.) into INPUT of VCR\DVD, OUTPUT of VCR\DVD to TV RF input.
2nd) If you have INPUT\OUTPUT to what are called " RCA " jacks on your TV, on the front or on the back, then any & all output jacks from VCR\DVD goes to INPUT\OUTPUT of the TV.
In other words:: output of audio on VHS\DVD to input of audio on TV( RCA jacks). Output of video on VHS\DVD to input of video (RCA jacks)
Hope this helps

Troubleshooting vcr


Usually one connects a RF [cable tv, Dish tv, antenna ] cable to the INPUT of VCR & a RF cable output to tv (antenna )INPUT .The reason is that if you are watching TV reception (Cable, Dish, etc) and you want to watch VCR tape, just push the tape in and it should start playing picture.
From what I understand that you are trying to say:: [ YOUR NEW TV ! ] you MUST connect to the RCA jacks, CABLE S with RCA plugs that come out of the VCR to the new TV [ INPUT & OUTPUT] jacks .When you ["" use input botton on VCR remote"" ] you are using a DIFFERENT input signal. You are not letting the TV know that you are changing the signal from RF(antenna, Cable, Dish,etc)to the RCA signal ["" I use my input botton on my vcr remote""]

Loose Input Connection


Absolutely, it's a bad coax jack. It's a very common problem. Probably a 35-90$ repair is all. The jack on the tuner just has to be replaced. Sometimes the whole tuner has to be replaced causing the price to go up a bit, but that doesn't normally happen.
