I had a Roku hooked up to the TV and it worked fine, the kids unhooked it to play a game and it doesn't work any more. It says "unusable Signal."

Check your connection are correct on the tv also check if they might have changed the setup input setting are changed that is why you get that message

RCA HD52LP: Composite video inputs don't work

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.

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".

61" RCA Projection TV, no picture, "unusable signal" message

Read the suggestion of unplugging the TV for at least 4 hours to re-set to factory specs and that took care of it!

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.
