Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Inputs quit working

I have an RCA HD61LPW42. The problem is that the only signal (input) that works anymore is from my PS3 to DVI input and an HD signal from my cable box to Component input. All other inputs - composite, component, anything other than HD signal to the previously mention inputs show a no signal message on the tv.

Check the cords for open.if not, try to wiggle just a little the cords while you insert it, if the screen flicker and shows video signal, you'll need a tech to resolder the jacks.

My monitor(HPL1950) was working good until i unplugged it to play on PS3. When i connected the monitor to my PS3 with HDMI it showed black screen. I cant figure out what is wrong with it


I assume you have never tried this option before. Based upon the manual for your device, it seems that you may have a compatibility issue. SOME models of your device had digital video input capability. But most operate on analog inputs only. Even the DVI jack (which ironically stands for Digital Visual Interface) on most older devices is an ANALOG input jack. Only when you get to DVI-D and DVI-DD does the input get totally digital. So what you are probably seeing is that the monitor see a signal on the DVI, but cannot comprehend it as it is looking for an analog video signal and is receiving a digital one. Here is a Wikipedia Link explaining the different DVI jacks, their capabilities and limitations.

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

I am trying to use my DVI input for HD quality picture. The video is great but i have tried all of the RCA inputs for audio and none of them give audio in DVI input. I do not see any RCA inputs for DVI. Do...


DVI does not use RCA inputs. It either uses a DVI input or an HDMI input. Look at the back of your TV for a small slot style input or a wide wedge style connector. If you provide me with your make and model number I can further help you.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have a Playstation 3/blu ray player and I don't know how to get hi def video on a samsung hln467w


Your TV only has a DVI input, not an HDMI which PS3 has as an output. You can buy a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the HDMI out of the PS3 to the DVI input of the TV. To get the true HighDef video you need a HDMI input on the TV to enjoy the full capacity of the Blu ray capabilities of the PS3. DVI came out before the HDMI standard and your picture will look good but not like HDMI. I have the same problem with my samsung 65 inch. I Bought the wrong technology. I hope this helps and good luck!

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

Ps3 hook up


Yes, you can! But not straight out of the box. You need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable adapter. It will convert it so your tv can use it. Here is a link to some:

Hdmi to dvi


a DVI Connection does not transmit sound, so you will need a seperate audio cable. Have you changed the settings in the ps3 and your tv's input to HD signal or 720 DPI, do not choose 1080i or 1080P as DVI does not support those high settings.
