Question about RCA F19421 19" TV
We switched from dish network to cable tv now my two older RCA are stuck on video. I have tried to set the tv to cable tv but it keeps switching back to video. The two rca tvs do not have a cable box anoter tv has the cable box. Not sure what else to try.
Some RCA TV's have a "video" option that requires you to use the original remote control to cycle up or down the channels.
Also, try unplugging the TV's from the power receptacle for 30 minutes....some times, that will cause the TV to reset.
With the power cord unplugged, manually push the power button on the front of the TV to discharge all capacitors.
Ensure the 30 minute is complete before plugging it back in.
Let me know if this works.

The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.
Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.

I asume your game systems and dvd player are hooked up via the rca inputs.So all you would need to do is purchase a universal remote,program it for your tvand press ch00 which should be the video input.make sure your dvd or game system is on so you know if you are on the right channel

The way you describe having your TV/DVD connected you wont see the picture in the regular channel line-up.
You will have to tell the TV to to switch to the video input. This is usually done by navigating the menu to the "input" and selecting video 1, video 2 etc
Failing that try changing to channel 00 ( just type 00 in remote)
Some sets will allow you to type in 02 and then hit the channel down button on the remote.
If you have the user manual it will give you the exact steps you need to take.
