Question about RCA F27442 27" TV

1 Answer

No Picture with Cable Connection

Our television seems to work perfectly - with the exception of the cable connection. We have a perfect picture with both the VCR, and DVD and audio is working as well. But we can't seem to bring up the picture for regular cable. We can bring up the main menu on the TV and all components seemingly work. Is there something we can do to 'reset' the tv or is this an internal problem that will need to be repaired by a professional?

Thanks for the help!

Most likely the tuner is damaged inside of the TV itself, possible from moving the tv or pressing the connector too hard. An easy fix for anyone who has the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron. You may also go into your menu and make sure that you are using the right system for pal or ntse

Hi I have a samsung plasma PN50C550G1F I havve right now 2 vertical lines that seem to change color with the background picture. Tv powers up fine sound work perfect.

Vertical lines on a plasma TV are caused by either a failing x-buffer board or a loose connection at the flex cable between the panel and the buffer board. Sometimes just removing the flex cable, cleaning it, snd reinstalling it will fix it.

I've tried numerous possibilities with each input but they never show a clear picture.

If the components you are connecting to the tv set are working but the picture quality is the problem, then it sounds to me like you are connecting them to the correct inputs, just your connections or cables don't have a good connection. My visio never gave me a perfectly clear picture (like you see at the store) from my satelite or any other input, until I used an HDMI cable for the connection.

"snow sound" on rca tv, perfect picture

Although your picture is perfect, I would think the fine tuning is slightly off. This can also be to do with the cable box frequency setting. Call out the cable people & get them to check the box & the setting up to the TV.

HDMI input problems

HDMI is suppose to carry sound. With the rest of the symptoms you describe, the first thing I would try is to replace that cable with a good quality one.
