That is not the fault with the remote control. It is with the set. Try a reset to this set, and then check. If it do not help, check and replace the main system control memory IC of the set. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go.

I bought an RCA smart tv and it was working fine until I picked up the RCA remote to change channels and now I get "no signal" on my TV screen. How do I fix this?


What was going on before you picked up the remote? Did the remote work OK to initially turn on the TV? Where you able to change channels prior to this issue? If yes, then maybe you accidently changed the source mode of the TV via the remote?

The source mode button chooses what signal you want to use for getting a signal transmitted to your TV (E.g., antenna, HDMI, etc.) If the source button is clicked to something that is not supported (E.g., Line1, or Line2, or Line3, or a particular source like the antenna option is not set-up properly to receive a signal, then you will receive a, "no signal" message".

My rca hd52w58 on autoscan will only find 4hannels MY Visio fines 38 suspect digital tuner any suggeationas?


Could be a tuner but a simple way to find out is DIRECT ENTER with the remote (numbers) a channel and hit enter---if it goes to missing channel you can manually in the menu with the remote ADD each missing channel one at a time--tedious but will rule the tuner out.

Almost every set made is able to add or delete channels one at a time.

What channels are you able to receive? When you press the Select button on DISH remote, which light on the top of the remote lights up? The Sat button should light up when you are in satellite mode. If any other button lights up, press and release the Sat button and then try changing channels. If this doesn't work, we may need to troubleshoot with you. Please call us on 1-800-333-3474 and speak with Tech Support. I hope this helps.

My RCA HDTV remote won't work with the regular tv. It was working fine last night until i pressed the tv botton and the volume button.


One thing you can try is to take the batteries out of the remote and then press every button on the remote, then replace the batteries. I have used this technique several times and it works. If that doesn't help try leaving the batteries out over night, this may reset the remote.

I hope this helps.

Very odd tv problem


Digital receivers whether external to the TV (converter box, satellite) or built in are digital processors(computers). Just like computers there are times when they freeze up. This can happen if the data stream is corrupted too much to render the picture, but enough signal to lock. The processor attempts to "wait" long enough to gather enough information to begin. Just like computers, these need to be re-booted by turning on or off and sometimes unplugged and plugged in. You have either too low of signal quality or too high of signal strength, which is a problem with digital receivers.

No freaking signal


Double check ALL your ant wire connections. Then reprogram the converter to check for stations again. If that doesn't work then reposition your antenna and reprogram again.
