Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Programming digital channels

Have a 52" RCA HDTV, hooked to cable from the wall, no cable box, plugged into the analog (bottom) plug on the back of the tv.  We are unable to program any digital channels, which we know are available from our cable company (Mediacom).

Have followed all directions from the manual from the tv.  Any suggestions that we might be missing when programming the channels?

The problem is not with your TV. You need a digital box to unscramble the channels.

How to hook up an old RCA 14 inch tv to DVD


Easy. All you have to do is to make sure that the DVD player is old the older types that have RCA connectors at the back of the DVD. Latest DVD may have RCA connections but I am not sure if it can send digital signal directly to the analog TV. Try this and see what happens. if your TV is old and does not have Component Video (Red/Green/Blue) RCA sockets (input) but has standard Pal/NTSC sockets (Yellow/Red/Black) hook up the yellow, red and black plugs into a DVD (out) RCA sockets of same colour, then hook up the other end of the cable in the (in) RCA sockets at the rear of the TV.
If it works, then all is well. If it doesn't work, then you have to hook up the cable from the DVD to the (input) RCA sockets of a Set Top Box, so that the Set Top Box will convert the signals for the analog TV. Just pay attention to the inputs and outputs at the rear of them.
On your DVD - plug the RCA cable to the (OUTPUT) RCA sockets. On the Set Top Box - plug the connectors in the (IN) RCA sockets and then use another cable connected to the OUT RCA's of the Set Top Box, then connect the other connectors to the (IN) of the TV RCA sockets. Hopefully you get the picture on what I mean.

Why all my cables channels not working


if you are using coax cable to conn cable box to tv, be sure to use the analog ant conn on back of tv, and there is a switch on the back of the tv for selecting channel 3 or 4, for cable box use. be sure to turn tv to the same channel the switch is selected to, and always use the cable box to change channels/ programs, not the tv channel selector.

Does the RCA TV model D52W20 have a digital tuner? or will I need a cable box to watch TV? At our location they just switched the signal. we just had a tube TV with the cable line in the back and up till...


Greetings Pete - No, your display is what is called HDTV ready, meaning it needs a separate tuner AKA set top box.

You need to get the cable box, plug in the component video cables into your TV (usually provided) and plug in audio cables and you're viewing HDTV. See below:

How do you hook up to dish network? there is no spot on the back of the tv to hook up the regular tv cord coming out from the cable box.


At the bottom right of this model there should be a connector labelled Antenna/Cable - if not there, use the ones labelled Composite Inputs and connect the yellow red and white cables fom the output of the satellite box there. (you'll need a the a/v cables)

Vcr hooked up, no audio


From the VCR to the tv if you have RCA cables its kind of hit and miss where the audio cord goes. Only one of the jacks are for sound but it has to be plugged in to the right input. Audio is usually the white one. Just keep touching it to inputs until you hear sound start to come out of the speakers. Hope it helps.

Hd channels not showing


Your tv has a input named COMPONENT to make work this input you need three RCA conectors (RED GREEN BLUE) plus two audio RCA Conectors red and white. If you have another set that can be plug in in this input and that set (dvd recorder, in ex.) has a digital tuner then you got it, But the Magic about the decoder box is that only cost 40.00 +- dllrs and send the signal to your antenna connector or RCA analog conector. Good luck!
