Question about RCA HDLP50W151 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

TV turns on, but no sound or picture from any of the inputs

Lightening ran into my house on both the electrical and cable feeds.  Now my RCA HDLP50W151 will turn on allowing me to operate the menu screen and search for the inputs.  However, no picture or sound being received on any inputs from known working component sources.

Also, Yamaha 5650 A/V receiver will turn on, but no component output or sound output.

Any suggestions/solutions.

I don't know if I had any lightning, but it is possible because my DVR/Cable box was operating on limited capacity right before this started. I unplugged everything to reset the DVC/Cable box, and when I turned the tv on, I got real tv sound for a few seconds and then a "no signal" message in the center of the screen. This happens every time I turn it on. It is not the DVR/Cable box because I hooked it up to another tv and it works fine. It's not a bulb because I would still get this other person, none of my inputs will pick up the cable. I really don't want to just have a random service person in here to charge me to figure it out if someone can lead me down the right path to getting it fixed. Please help, I love this tv and don't want to replace it. LH

I have just hooked up a dvd player to the TV, and we watched it one time just fine. Now when we try to watch a DVD we just get an audio sound for about 2 seconds, and then nothing at all. There is no...

have you attempted a different video source into the TV (Gaming system, another DVD player, Reciever)?
The issue may be that the cables you are using may be old, and are severely damaged. inside of those cables is a standard RG-59 Coaxial Line that is extremely flimsie.
try and use separate cables or a separate input.
If the input change works, is most likely the switchboard on your TV (Hardware) and will need to be serviced. Another option to use is a Video switch ($35USD), and not pay $300+ for system repairs.

I recently purchased an xbox, but because of the cable box, i dont know to to get video

Your cable box and TV should have RCA input jacks (Red, White, and Yellow) Red & White are for Audio and Yellow is for video feed...

HD Receivers & HD TV's are just slightly more upgraded with better video feed connections.
HD video can use three color coded RCA jacks for the video feed or a HDMI cable; if you can use the HDMI connection on your TV I recommend using that because it's less confusing to plugin the input cables. Try turning your TV to it's side to see what inputs you have available to connect your device to.

After you have it pugged your device into the input jacks press the "Input" key on your TV remote and power up the device.
Most TV's have more than one input, so you may have to cycle through the TV inputs by press the input key again until the video feed is displayed.
(If you don't have a "input" button on the TV or remote control you can try entering channel "00")

Three (3) possible ways:
1. use the audio out of the TV (if available) which would normally be red/white RCA and connect to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system;
2. remove the cable INput of your TV and feed it to a tuner such as those in a VCR or any other device (some DVDs have TV tuners also). The VCR's Video OUTput would go to your TV while the Audio OUTput would go to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system;
3. if your cable uses a box/decoder and has the yellow, red & white RCA, its a matter of splitting the red/white signal to feed both your TV and DVD surround sound system or simply remove them from the TV and feed them to the DVD surround sound system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
