Question about RCA RTD258 System

2 Answers

No video signal

All my sound is working correctly but i cant get a menu or any video on my TV. I have umplugged and replugged many times and it is not the problem. M brother told me he was playing around with the resolution on the menu and he pressed 1080p and it went to no signal. If the resolution is the problem, please provide the steps on restoring the video since i cant see the menu. Thanks.

    I think that my RCA RTD258 switched over to a HDMI setting and now i get no video signal on my TV. I can not access the menu as you have to have video signal to read it on the TV. Any advice on how to reset this?

• The resolutions available for HDMI output depend on the connected TV or projector. For
details, see the user’s manual of your TV or projector.
• When the resolution is changed during playback, it may take a few seconds for a normal
image to appear.
• If you set the HDMI output resolution 720p or 1080i, HDMI output provides better picture
• If 720P or 1080i is selected, C-VIDEO, S-VIDEO and component video will not ouput video
signal. Press and hold the SUBWOOFER button on the front panel to reset the HDMI
Resolution setting.

I have a JVC G40 DVD home theater system and when I play DVD's the voice and picture don't match up. Specifically, Peoples lips move and then a second later what they say is do I fix this?

When viewing on Digital TV:-
Sometimes Audio and Video signal can not be transmitted simultaneously due to additional process time for the video signal compared to that of the audio signal.
Often video signal takes more time than the audio signal to convert from analogue signal to digital signal in the Digital TV.
It may result in mismatch of the picture and sound.
In the TH-G30/40's HD AV Sync menu, you can adjust the audio signal delay for simultaneous AV signal transmission
1. Delay time can be varied in 10msec steps.(0 to 300ms)
2. Delay time is different between TV Brands.
So you need to adjust the delay time for correct lip-sync.
The adjustment is listed in the instruction book page12

No picture, good sound

It's most likely the video board. The menu is injected at the output of the video stream right before the LCD panel. Having audio indicates the signals are getting from the inputs through the input switcher and audio boards. Unless you have electronics experience, I suggest having an experienced tech look at it.

26PF5521D wont show menu after reseting factory defaults

Switch the TV to analogue mode (if possible)

Press and hold the "MENU" button on the side of the TV. The settings menu should appear. Continue to hold the menu button until this menu disappears. (If you let go before the menu disappears, start again)

The TV should now go blank for up to 2 minutes, and then revert to factory settings and intitial installation screen.

Procede as per original installation.

Samsung TXJ2754 (27") DVD issues (Sound but no Picture)

Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.
