Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Digital Tuner The digital tuner dissapeared, is missing from my Signal Source in Channel Setup. It was there and now it is gone. I did hear a pop while watching a local channel and it went black. It has done this before but eventually came back. I was given this tv by a friend, at the time it needed the convergense fuse. I replaced that as well as all of the capacitors that I could find that that others said to replace for other problems. I also resoldered the flyback. Being that it has done this before and then returned, what could it be? Where should I look for testing?

Are you on about the internal tuner DTV. as these are volt sensitive. you can replace the board but would check it is not getting to higher voltage than it needs. the silver cap capacitor dont blow the tops. and have to be checked with a meter. also check the the stabilizer on the board small square chip with 4 pins on them. make sure they are not leaking across. as this can cause voltage irregularities. and do damage to the voltage.

According to RCA this set only has a digital receiver for the antenna. The cable input doesn't have a digital receiver.

SOURCE: rca hdtv channel changed by mistake

RCA channel setup and selection is not easy to understand. You may try to add channel 3 on the add/remove channel section. If that doesn't work try pressing the input button. Good Luck.

How to switch from analog to digital


The LED LCD TV's came out in 2009. It already has a built in digital HD tuner.

Allen wants to know how to switch the TV between the built in analog tuner and built in digital tuner.

Switching between the two tuners is done by means of the "TV mode" switch on the remote control.

You will NOT be able to select analog channels if have NOT done analog tunning.

If you need to do a retuning then hit the "menu" button select "setup" then "plug and play" enter the default pin number 0000. When you are selecting the channel source to memorize make sure you select "digital and analog". This will then cause the TV to tune and memorize both the analog and digital channels.

For details refer to page 8 of the user manual.

Tv stays on one channel,no color or picture just ghost or outline, i have a Sharp lc46sb 54u


Check the settings to see if it is locked on channel 3 for external tuner source to have an input from a cable box ant in that needs 3 to function or from some other externally decoded signal like a vcr. Does the TV have a Digital tuner or the old analog tuner? If it's digital you can hook up a rabbit ear antenna with the UHF output on it & should be able to tune in some stations. If it's the old style then you will need a converter box to get it to receive any stations.
Fist check the settings to see if it has it set to lock on channel 3 for external tuner source.

I don't have signal on my tv and there are no program's to watch as they are all blank. Is just a brand new tv I bought like 2 days ago


What make and model of TV do you have? What is your signal source (OTA (indoor or outdoor antenna), cable, satellite)? How is the TV connected to the source?

The model is important since some "TVs" are actually only monitors and do not have tuners. Then you need to connect to a set top box to watch anything.

Assuming the TV has an ATSC (digital) tuner for OTA, check that your antenna is pointed in the correct direction for the stations in your area. Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to identify the direction. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and gives a very conservative list of stations. TVfool tells you the type of antenna needed to get any station (assuming no trees or tall buildings that might block the signal). Depending on your TV, you will need to enter the menu in order to correctly set the incoming signal type and scan for channels. Digital signals are either enough for the tuner to interpret or not available. If your signal is split between several TVs you may need an amplifier to get enough signal. Sometimes, the amplifier may fail and filter out all stations in certain frequencies. (Older TVs often only had a NTSC tuner; there are very few NTSC stations still broadcasting. They are low-power and thus you may not be able to watch them if they are far away.)

If you have cable without a box, which type of cable signal is coming in? Digital cable is QAM and not all TVs have a clearQAM tuner (that reads the unencrypted signal).

If you are using a set top box, make sure to set the TV to the correct input (HDMI, component video, composite video, coax and the correct number if there are multiple inputs). Make sure that the box is also on. If the set top box requires the TV to be set to a specific channel (3,4,60), make sure to go to that channel.

I hope this helps.

(For the US, the digital OTA tuner is ATSC and QAM for cable. In other countries, different signal formats are used.)

CANNOT GET PHILIPS DVDR3305 TO RECORD ON PANASONIC TV.TX-L37D25B WHILE WATCHING ANOTHER CHANNEL?.


What is your source? Since the DVDR3305 has an analog PAL tuner and most TV stations are broadcasting in digital, you probably have some sort of set top box connected to the recorder. If you change the channel on the set top box, you will record the program on the new channel. If you are recording PAL and your TV has a PAL tuner, you should be able to just record one show while watching another with the DVDR3305 daisy-chained to the TV. Just make sure to change the TV channel not the channel on the DVDR3305.

If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the signal before the set-top box to record one channel and watch another. (Note: basic splitters will cause some extra loss of signal and may reduce a digital signal below the threshold needed to tune in the signal. An amplified splitter can avoid this - when the amplifier is working properly.) Otherwise, you need a second set-top box (or a dual tuner set-top box).

On my set-up with an aerial antenna, I would put the splitter between the wall jack and the electronics. The incoming cable goes to the splitter, then cable 1 goes to the TV. Cable 2 goes to the set-top box. Tune the set-top box to the channel to record and check the settings with the TV set to the DVD source. (DVD set to record on Tuner (and the specific channel of the set-top box output) or front s-video or EXT1 or EXT2.) Then change the TV back to the TV source and change to the channel for the second program.


The manual for the DVDR3305 is available from Philips. The link to the manual is http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3305_05/dvdr3305_05_dfu_eng.pdf .
I hope this helps.

(I actually use an A/B switch and do not try to watch a second program on the TV connected to the DVD recorder. However, most of my recordings are for time-shifting of programs that air when I can't watch any TV program.)

Hi,

Your TV has a dual tuner - one for analogue and one for digital although they are contained on the same tuner board. It's possible that the digital tuner has failed, in which case the tuner board will most likely need to be replaced, but often this problem can be resolved with a "hard" reset. Turn the TV off and unplug it. Remove all the cables from the back, leave it for at least 5 minutes and then re-connect only the cable from the tuner source. i.e aerial/antenna. Make sure you are in Digital TV mode (DTV), then run the channel scan again.

If it works turn the TV off, re-connect all of your other devices and you should be able to resume using the TV as normal.

If this doesn't work, you may need to have the digital tuner replaced. The analogue and digital channel feeds are from the same source. As the analogue channels are working there is no obvious fault with the feed or cables.

Please try this first and then post back for further assistance if needed.

Regards,
BElectric

Can't record from tv or disc,


shouldn't need one, If you can't get the tuner source of your ilo to record, try using A/V cables (output) from tv to (Inputs) on ilo. set tv on channel you want to watch and it should come through to the ilo (selecting the correct source input of course) If your tv is really old and doesn't have A/V then you will need RF Modulator. This way of hooking tv up will also work with recording DIGITAL signal from a Digital converter box type tuner (the tuner in Ilo soon to be no longer operatable).

Configuring I/O cable box, VCR, DVD.


Unfortunately you would need a second digital cable tuner to do what you are trying to do.
The digital tuner only outputs one channel at a time, selected by that box, so you can only record or watch that one channel at a time.

Many people are switching to dual tuner DVR's to cure this dilemma.

Delay in built in tuner is unacceptable


Because it has a built in tuner there will be a delay since the tuner has to process all bands for each channel for analog and digital signal.
