Antenna on RCA F27615

I received this set from a friend, to replace a set with a broken coax connection. My antenna brought in my local channels on the old television but will not work on this set. I changed the input on the menu to UHF/VHF and when I have the antenna screwed in I can change the channels and the picture doesn't seem to be any different from one page to the next. Help!!

If this set has Guide Plus in the menus then set it up. Choose ant or cable, in menus, and No for cable box and no for DVD and no for vcr and finish. If you choose yes for a cable box then it locks the channel to 3 to match your cable box.

I have a Magnavox tv.. and I brought a ematic AT 103B converter box.. I can only get 11-1 and 11-2 and 11-3, I did a channel search.. and still can not get other channel's.. Katrina

Usually this means that you need a different antenna or to move your antenna. If you are using an indoor antenna, you may need an external antenna. Make sure that the antenna is pointing to the transmitters. If you have an amplifier on the antenna, it may be damaged and could be blocking some frequencies. In that case, you may need to replace the antenna or the amplifier. In some places, surrounding objects can block the signal; trees and buildings are the frequent problems.

Please use to check where the local stations transmitters are located and the recommended antenna to receive each station. ( is a similar resource but usually is too conservative in the list of available stations.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(In my case, I point a large external antenna towards the local stations farthest away. This lets me receive those stations and the ones from closer transmitters. If the antenna rotates, I lose some local stations but may gain access to stations that are outside my area. Then I have to climb up and turn the antenna. I tried an antenna rotor but it eventually burned out.)

Is there a way to enhance the channel reception on a RCA 1400

Hi. you mean receiving good image with a poor antenna ? Mostly one tends to use areal amplfiers. These however are no miracle devices. If your signal is weak (say, less than 10-20 µV) the amplifier's signal /noise ratio makes it even worse. The best 'amplifier' is still a good losless , as short as possible coax cable between the antenna and the receiver.

Hooking up antena & converter box

Good: Connect the antenna to the converter box where it says antenna/in. Connect the coax cable to where it says to tv/out on the converter box. Connect this cable to the coax/rf input on the television. Plug in and turn on the converter box and the television. Make sure the television is on channel 3 and follow the setup process that pops up on the screen.

Better: Connect RCA cables to the converter box where the yellow red and white holes are. Connect them to an RCA input on your television. If you don't have a red hole on the television that's ok, just connect yellow and white and leave the red plug dangling. Connect the antenna to the converter box where it says antenna/in. Plug in everything and turn everything on. Press the video/input/source button until you have located the setup screen for the converter box and follow the directions on the screen.

My tv got no sound..but if connect a video/dvd via rca ok.

Sounds like you have a tuner or an antenna problem. If you are using a DVT converter box to watch off the air TV, the signal has to be very good to get sound and picture. Try connecting a VCR or a DVD player trough the coax cable and see if it you get sound an pic on Channel 3 or 4. If you do, it is an antenna problem.

Cannot get channels programmed for RCA F27615

The chassis used in this set is one of several that are known for problems caused by bad solder connections. RCA used the metal shield around the tuner section to provide ground connections for several circuits. Cracks develop and all sorts of funny problems start to pop up. Tuning problems such as you describe are one of them. Often the troubles can be fixed by resoldering the required areas. Sometimes the bad connections can lead to failure of the memory chip that stores TV settings and data for the computer, but replacements are easy to find. A TV shop should be able to do the repair for you. RCA had several technical bulletins about this, although they never really admitted it was a design flaw, and there was a class-action lawsuit that resulted in a lot of repairs under an extended warranty.

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...

Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

I have no sound!

Are you using a cable box or is your input through the coax cable or antenna? If you are using a cable box with RCA connections make sure the Red and Black cables are securely plugged in both the cable box and the TV. Check to see if your TV has sound by going to the antenna input and select any channel and crank up the volume. If you don't hear anything you'll probably need a new TV.
