RCA P52820BL Projection TV - Video intermittently works???
This has been a recurring problem for some time. Once in a while my SVID input seems not to work. I had to switch to SVID since my COAX input did the same thing years ago (the coax no longer works all together!!). Is this a problem with the VIDEO switch on the board since VID1 still works with my XBOX??? Now it trys locking on the signal between ANT and SVID, switching back and forth finally giving me the UNUSABLE SIGNAL message...... Any help would be appreciated!!

After some research http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/51hc85/docs/51hc85_om_e.pdf There is no coaxial input for this tv. Also as far as the RF Modulator you unfortunatly are trying to use that incorrectly. The RF Modulator is used to convert the RCA or Red Yellow White cables down to Coaxile, not vice versa. However if you have an old VCR or better yet a cable box you would want to hook up the cable box then enter the TV using one of the RCA jacks, HDMI Jacks, or other inputs such as Svid. But easy enough if you have a vcr you can access cable through that as well, and make sure the tv is sat to the correct channel or input to access the VCR or other item.
RCA Authorized service tech looked at it. He determined that the DM Module need to be replaced. The part alone costs $550 + labor. Since the HDMI and component video inputs seem to work, he suggested buying a VCR DVD combo with HDMI output which would be far less than repairing the tv itself. I'n researching the possibility of purchasing the part myself.
usually a tv that doesn't "see" video on the S-video will not even "switch" to it. It just goes to the next Svideo, RCA etc..
Make sure your cable is not damaged. (on both ends) Does the svideo source and svideo cable work with another tv or video device?
From the Manual: " WHO•INPUT In TV mode, press WHO•INPUT to toggle through the available Video Input
channels (VID/SVID and the current channel). In SAT mode, press to select available channel lists.
Using the WHO•INPUT Button
Use the WHO•INPUT button to toggle through the available input sources (VID and the current
channel) and view the content from the component you have connected to the TV.
1. Press TV to place the remote in TV mode. Make sure that the content from the component is
2. Press WHO•INPUT to tune to the available input source and view the component.
3. Press WHO•INPUT again to tune back to the channel you were previously watching. "
Don't pass the video sample through the Onkio.. Use a second single RCA patch cord to go from vcr to TV... Use the same yellow out on the vcr that you're using now and send it directly to the yellow video input you're using on the TV..
Hope that's clear - I'm getting tired...
You need an audio y cable - That is a cable with a headphone jack (to plug into the speaker/line out jack on the laptop) and on the other end 2 rca jacks (they need to be plugged into the left and right audio inputs on your tv but make sure it is the same inputs that work with the s-video cable)
That should get you sound on your tv.
You can get 1 here:
Or pick 1 up at your local $1 store.
Or if you have an old pair of headphones, rca jacks and wire you can even make one.
