Question about RCA L46WD22 Television

2 Answers

Unusable Signal Hi, the problem I'm having with this tv is that for some reason the tv will not pick up any signal from the Time Warner cable box. I have called the cable company to because this problem but when the cable installer came there was nothing wrong with the cable box. He brought his own tv to check and everything was fine. We tried using the regular single white connector that screws into the tv and the yellow, white, and red connectors. The cable guy and I tried everyting we knew but nothing worked. Although, we have both connected the tv continues to show the roving Unusable signal sign. The reason I'm asking here is because I the dam receipt and the warranty won't cover this. I would like to know 2 things. First, what would cause this and how much would it cost to repair. Thank you in advance for any suggestion you may have.

I also had the exact problem about 2 weeks ago on my L46WD22. Tried everything the RCA customer service rep told me. Took it to the authorized repair shop and they told me they had others on their shelf for over a month. Since the board has been on back order for a while, my repair shop called and actually got to talk to an engineer at RCA. The problem seems to be a surface mount fuse that RCA said they also could not get. My repair center said that he found a fuse to fit the board, and though it was a higher rated fuse, installed it. TV works fine and it is back in my house.

Hi. What you need to do is plug in a cable or Antena in its place, and reprogram the channels. if you did that, then try to use a VCR or DVD player and install it using the RCA cables. Install the cable to the DVD or the VCR. If nothing works, My TV has a crack in the LCD. I'll either sell it to you, or buy yours. Let me know. Thanks.... email me to hajum30@yahoo.com
Thank You...

My rca tv has unusable signal onit


Hi, Check the cable connections to and from the TV.
Change the channels to see if there are others that are out.
If you are not using any cable company then you will still need a set top box to unscramble the digital signal. Good luck.

If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner

Wish I knew the answer ... I have the same problem after switching to Dish Network (Satellite). It worked fine with Time Warner Cable. I'm suspecting the signal over Dish is analog (NTSC) which is not supported by this particular TV. I wish I still had the box and receipt!

I was given this tv I need to connect cable


your t.v will hook up directly to cable. if you are asking how to hook to a digital box then you can hook it up the same as you had it hooked on your previous t.v. but if you want to get high def channels then you are going to have to take your digital box back to Time Warner and swap it for a high def digital box. or you can just call Time Warner and have a technician go to your house and swap/ hook things up for you. Hope this helps you.

Unstable signal


Hi,
Are you sure it says unusable signal instead of unstable signal.
This means that you have the wrong input in place in the tv. If you got the original remote with it there may be an input button. on it. Some RCA's use 00 for the video input. If your cable goes directly to the antenna connector on the back you should get all channels when you do auto search in the menu provided you have the right input programmed. If you are using a cable box the tv must be on channel 3 or 4. video input uses rca cables red white and yellow to the proper input on the tv but there again the input must be set correctly. Possibly in the menu do a search there. Hope this helps.

This TV won't support 1080!


Low or poor signal from the cable company. Try another signal source such as a DVD play.
