Can't get channels.

I have the RCA truflat and want to set up the digital channels. I don't have cable in that room. I tried the digital channel search on the main menu and it said no channels found? I know there are digital channels available. What am I not doing?

Just check this TV by connecting it to on-air programs. Connect external antenna to it, and make an auto tune function. Refer to its user manual for details. If TV do not tune in to on-air channels too, the tuner to your Tv should be checked and replaced. If it receives on-air channels, and only cable channels are missing, you must contact the service provider to your cable connection.

I have a (i think 20 inch) rca truflat tv and i can't find the channel for video and dvd. the manue didn't help and i don't have the guide"


Press menu on your remote. Press "4" for channel and "4" for video input source. In this menu, you can toggle between s-video and regular video (yellow plug) input. The disadvantage is, if you're like me and you've got a DVD player and and VCR (or maybe a video game system) all hooked up to the same TV, you've got to go through the menu and switch the inputs to watch something else. I'm happy with my digital audio cable; I'll deal with yellow-plug video.

Can't change the channel on RCA TruFlat. It just has a blue screen and says "14-3"


That RCA TV has only an older analog tuner, so if you're still using it for off-the-air reception you'll need to be using it with a digital converter. I'm assuming you are, since you say there's a channel number 14-3 being shown. The only way you'll see such a number is if it's coming from a digital converter, which will be sending the signal to the TV on channel 3 or 4 (on the TV's internal tuner).

There are several possibilities. One is that the converter isn't changing channels when you use its remote control. This is often caused by weak batteries, so try a fresh set. If your model of converter has channel up/down buttons on it (some do, but many require the remote for everything), try changing the channel manually.

If the converter isn't changing channels, you should try rescanning. The channel memory may have gotten cleared or corrupted for some reason. Also be sure the antenna is properly connected. With digital broadcasting, no antenna means no picture, guaranteed.

If everything else seems to be correct and the converter isn't finding any channels, you'll need to replace it. Unless it's still covered by the manufacturer's warranty or you have a replacement plan from the seller, you will need to purchase a new converter. They weren't designed to be serviced.

Rca 14" truflat


This set was made before it was required to have digital tuning built in. You would need a digital converter box if you want off-the-air reception. (The federal program at www.dtv2009.gov that is giving $40 coupons toward purchasing a converter is out of money right now and is only putting people on a waiting list. It also looks like the changeover to digital is going to be delayed again, so you might not need to worry about it for a while longer.)
