Question about RCA F31317 31" TV

1 Answer

TV gets all channels, except 2-6

TV worked fine until the channels 2-6 disappeared and all I get is fuzz. We checked other tvs in the house, and channels 2-6 were still showing, so it must be the TV. We switched out the TV with another one, and that one works fine, so it's not the cable or any of the connections. Any ideas?

    I tried the suggested solution about setting the control to cable tv, and it was already set that way. Husband was playing with it this afternoon, and somehow got these channels to appear. However, when you turn the TV off, they disappear again. Can't get it to show the channels again this evening. Still have a problem!

In most cases when you set your menu ("tuner section") to cable, the tv will pick up all channels, but if you set it to "off air" or "antenna" (or whatever the other choice is labeled), then the tv will only go up to about channel 50 or 60. Are you using cable, dish, or an antenna on top of your house. If using cable or dish, then go into the menu on your tv and set the tuner to "cable". I am pretty certain that your tuner is NOT currently set on "cable" and that also there are no local "off air" channels in your area on 2 thru 6, therefore, you see snow on these channels. I have repaired hundreds of tv's and I feel very strongly that your problem is in your menu.

Channels 1 through 47 will come in and out but most of the time they dont come in at all. There will be fuzz for a second and then the screen turns blue. The upper channels work fine and dont cut out.


You need to check your antenna connections, and your Signal Amplifier, this sounds like that is your problem, IF you have visually and electrically proved your Antenna, cable, plugs, joints, and Amplifier are all OK, then you may have a fault in your tuner.

My TV Sharp 26 SB1 LCD PBS channel breaks up


Do any other OTA channels break up on this TV? Look through your setup options menu for a TV reset (memory or restore default or a similar command) . Do the reset and exit the menus (save the action on most TVs); then return and rescan the OTA channels.

On a different brand of TV this worked. The channel had broken up for several weeks; the reset was used when the channel finally became totally corrupted (no video on one sub-channel, no audio on the other).

Some tuners need a stronger signal to be stable; you may need an amplifier on your antenna.

I hope one of these ideas helps.

DVD Player Only Produces Snow After Power Outage. Halp!


Sounds like your TV has lost the DVD channel. Turn off TV and make sure the DVD player is connected to TV and is playing a DVD. Now put you TV on and press the SOURCE or AV button on your TV remote until you can see the DVD channel. In older TVs you may need select channel and tune it manually using the TV setup.

Remote Control


From GUEST: I found this solution in the manual and will perform this task again to see if I can get the tv will be re-recognized again. Give this a try, too.


Remote will not turn on or shut off the TV.
• You must program the converter box remote in order to control your TV power button.
• To program the remote control:
    1. Determine if the TV is a model that can be controlled by the remote control. See "Controllable TV brands" on page 17 in the manual.
    2. Turn on the TV.
    3. While you press and hold TV POWER on the remote control, press CH ^ or CH v one or more times until the TV turns off. Each time you press one of these buttons, the remote control sends a manufacturer code (between 1 and 45) to the TV.
