This is a resolution mismatch problem. One of the devices will not accept the resolution of the other. Try another type of connection or try another input.

Most DVD players and maybe the Wi are connected via rear audio and video input jacks so that may be your issue.

RCA L46WD22 LCD tv (3 year-old unit)...No picture, tried unplugging for a few hours to ''re-set'' the computer...nothing, tried to view a DVD, nothing, just a black screen with the ''unusable signal''...


The back lights inverter is working because you can see the "Unusable Signal' on the screen, if the inverter is dead, yoo will see nothing on the screen at all.
If the T-CON (LCD controller) is dead, you will see just gray glowing screen with no pictures or text.
You may have problem with video processor in the main logic board (tuner, audio, source selector).
Parts for your TV:

This is going to be difficult repair since you do have a way to try out the replacement board to be sure that is the problem. RCA service person has that advantage of parts in stock to try out.
I estimate the board from Jimmy to be about $150, from RCA will be twice as much, plus labor.

I am having issues with my RCA L46wd22yx5. First cable is on channel 3. that channel keeps saying unusable signal. Video 1 is the DVD player. Same thing..Video 2 is the Xbox 360 same thing and the HDMI1 is...


Check to make sure that the individual cables are connected to the corresponding channel. For example, DVD player is connected to the "Video 1" output on TV. On the back of your DVD, the cable is plugged in the "out" output, going to your TV the cable is plugged in the "in" output(red, white, yellow) Are you using an RCA cable(red, white, yellow) for the units?

Unusable signal is being displayed on television although it is connect to a digital cable box. It gives the same error even when connected to an analog cable box


You will need to have the tuner checked out, try connecting your cable box using the audio/video inputs to your tv(vid1, vid2 etc.)it should give you a normal picture.

make sure that you have it set to the right input signal source and that your source is working properly. if so then yeah, you need to replace the fuzle modulator.

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".

Unusable Signal


Hi. What you need to do is plug in a cable or Antena in its place, and reprogram the channels. if you did that, then try to use a VCR or DVD player and install it using the RCA cables. Install the cable to the DVD or the VCR. If nothing works, My TV has a crack in the LCD. I'll either sell it to you, or buy yours. Let me know. Thanks.... email me to hajum30@yahoo.com
Thank You...

VID1 showing unusable signal


If you have been using Vid1 with your DVD and have NOT changed it, make sure that the connection has not come loose, just a slight jarring can cause the problem.

2) You might also want to clean the contacts with "contact cleaner" available from a Electronics store.

3) Try a DVD that is a known "good" DVD in your DVD player, if that works, well you know...

"weak signal" on my RCA scenium


Hey! I have the same problem as you. But! this would happen only when I got a power outage. Unplug the TV for a couple of minutesand all was fine. For the last 5 day I have no TV. I have tried everything. All the out on the TV and I still get unusable signal. My rep told me to unplug for 24 Hours. Still didn't work. My menu option work as well and every time I put the TV on, off or if I change the input sound will come on for 2 seconde and stop. If I find the salution I will let you know. Gilles Ottawa
