I have an RCA model 27V530T and I cannot seem to get a signal in order to connect the television to my DVD player. I made sure all the cables were plugged into the right outlets, but when I do the television says "Unusable Signal" What should I do?

Some of these sets have had loose connections internally on the A/V module . Or if you think you can do it yourself . This module can be unplugged and take it to your local shop to have the solder contacts resoldered . This chassis is very tricky to get out . If you do not want to try call around to get an estimate onhow much they'd charge to do this procedure . We'd charge around $50.00 to $60.00 . Good luck

What channel do i put the tv on in order to watch


it really depends on which input you plugged it into, if you plugged into the cable connection make sure on the dvd player it says output for that connection, if it says input then you can't use it as an output, a lot of the new ones are made that way. use the rca outputs and plug it into the input on your tv, then switch the input from your remote and you should see it pop up, should say input 1, input 2, frnt, and others, those are actually channels

Old tv plays dvds but when cable box is on or off image scrolls vertically on the screen. wondering if this is an issue that can be fixed or is symptomatic of a 15 yr old tv. thanks.


I'm not sure what you mean by "cable box is on or off". Do you mean connected? If the cable box is connected to the TV through a 300-ohm antenna input, you are probably getting a lot of interference from the workings of the cable box. Try moving the cable box away from the TV.
If the TV is connected to the cable box with a 75-ohm cable, it may not be properly grounded - try another cable.
Also try manually tuning the channel on which the cable signal comes in, usually 3 or 4. Try an alternate channel.

If the DVD player is built into the set, the signal is less subject to outside interference. If the DVD player connects to RCA jacks on the set, it is also less subject to interference.
Vertical hold problems can be caused by aging capacitors in the "sweep" circuits but usually one sees that as loss of vertical hold on the DVD signal, as well.
Good luck.

Bought a proscanlcd hdtv 32lb30Q unable to get cable signal


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls confirm if below is how it is wired using a coaxial cable and not 3cable RCA to RCA:
  • Charter Digital Cable > DVD/VCR > TV
If yes and your concern is snowy or no signal on the TV screen, might it be that you have to power OFF the DVD/VCR when selecting channels on the TV itself (including when channel setup is being done).

Alternately, you can tune the TV to channel 3 and let the DVD/VCR do the channel selections.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

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".

Cable plug broke off


Well first repair the coaxial cable going to your antenna. There is no way you can use RCA cables as a substitution for coaxial cable. They have totally two different properties. You can use the coaxial and feed it to a VCR/DVD player where you can output the signal with RCA/composite cables. Basically, use your VCR/DVD player as a tuner for your TV.

anytime you connect componet signal (green red and blue)to regular video inputs (yellow) end will have same effect. make sure that if you are using component signal from dvd player you have to connected to component input in the set.
component signal will use green red and blue for video and red and white for sound.

How to connect surround sound system, at the moment its connected through cable, each time we use the dvd player we have take them out of the cable box then into the dvd player, we have a LG 42PC55 tv.


In order of picture and sound quality -- from best to worst:

1. The best way to connect, assuming your TV and A/V Receiver and/or Cable Box have the jacks, is to use a HDMI cable ( this cable is for both sound and video).

2. Use Component Video out to input (3 RCA plugs, Red, Blue & Green) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

3. Use S-Video out to input (1 din plug) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

4. Use Video out to input (1 RCA plug, yellow) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

Be sure to select the correct inputs on your TV and Audio/Video receiver when you are watching TV. For example if you have connected your TV to HDMI 1 and DVD to HDMI 2, you will not see or hear anything if you don't select the correct input on your TV and A/V receiver for the input you want to see and hear.

Detailed connection instructions will be found in your owners' manuals.

Hope this helped you. :)

No sound when connected to dvd player


If it's only connected with component video cable (Red, Blue, Green) cable set then no audio has been connected. You will still need to run a set of audio cables (usually White and Red). The other option is to use Composite cables (Yellow, White, Red). A composite cable set has the video on the yellow cable and the audio on the white and red. Component video breaks the video into the three channels.

I want you to know that I'm not paid for this, I just like trying to help. If I've misunderstood your question or this information does not solve your problem I'd be happy to try to help more. If you do find this information helpful I hope you'll give it a positive rating. Thanks and good luck.
