Unusable signal The TV will come on and you can go to the menu and see difference set-ups on the screen, but when you hit guide, exit, or menu, the screen goes to blue and has the message unusable signal. We hooked up another TV to the cable and it works fine, so it is not the cable.

Stuck on menu screen

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

How do I reset a Viewsonic N2759w to Factory default settings

On most Viewsonic TVs, hit menu (on the TV or your remote) go to Options (or Setup). The icon will look like a hammer with a double ended wrench across it (at least on my TV - a different model). Hit the down arrow and select Restore Default or Memory Recall. Select Yes and Enter when you see the prompt. Then exit the menu system (by hitting menu). The action is saved when you exit.

I hope this helps.

(the two different commands results from a change in Viewsonic's menu system - my print manual differs from the current on-line manual at Viewsonic's site. I'm not sure which set of commands will apply. If your TV menus are different, the names should still be similar.)

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".

Help me remove the Guide Plus Grid on my RCA television

Simply enter 00000 for the zip code and complete the set up process; if you're in Canada, select the USA as your country and use the zip. However, you MUST complete the set up, including allowing the TV to search for appropriate code. In the long scheme of things, location and codes don't really matter because you won't see the GUIDE again.

Poweroutage t.v. won't work now

It sounds like the TV set went to default settings. You should go into the menu again with the original remote and go thru the channel setup or guide plus if you have one. Good Luck PS Please dont forget to rate this thread.
