Question about RCA Scenium HDLP61W151 61 in. HD-Ready Television

1 Answer

Unusable video signal

When I power up the unit, it says "unusable video signal". The audio comes on for a brief second when it powers up, but then shuts off. I still have access to the tv menus and such. It says this for all video inputs and video signal types. I have tried everything from composite video, to hd video (xbox 360) to even trying to use the built in tuner with coax. No luck. Is there a particular board that has this issue? I have seen this problem on forums over and over, but have never seen a definitive answer, other than, keep re-powering tv till it works... That worked for 6 months or so but got worse over time.

Most DVD players and maybe the Wi are connected via rear audio and video input jacks so that may be your issue.

No internet. When I turn my monitor on it show unusable signal.


First check the back of your computer to ensure the video cable is properly connected (Usually a Blue Square connector).

Second, check to ensure your PC is powered on and you can see lights on the front, or hear the fans spinning. Check the power cable to the pc is connected good.

Unusable signal


A brand and model would be helpful. However if you have some knowledge on TV's you could try replacing the Jungle IC first. This usually controls the AV inputs on a standard CRT. Probable cause, Static on the Video line. Good Luck. Jus004
