Unusable Signal We have the 27V530T. The problem is that we went to watch a movie on DVD and "Unusable Signal" was on the screen. We have sound, but no picture. We have tried other video sources and get the same problem. Please help.

I have exactly the same problem, with my RCA F27645. I can find no answers on the internet, so far.

I have 3 ideas.

1) The digital signal receiver must not be receiving the DVD signal properly.

2) Coaxial cable receiver (the little pin plug) problem

3) Digital TV (broadcasts) causing havoc on older TVs.

    Ok, I stopped short of going to Best Buy to get a new TV b/c my DAD suggested I pull the DVD player on another tv.

    Dang it, he was right!. Same "audio no video" problem.

    After playing with multiple buttons shooting blindly I found the [ I/P ] button restored the picture immediately!

    This stands for Interaced or Progressive scanning:

    from wikipedia

    "Progressive or noninterlaced scanning is a method for displaying, storing or transmitting moving images in which all the lines of each frame are drawn in sequence. This is in contrast to the interlacing used in traditional television systems where only the odd lines, then the even lines of each frame (each image now called a field) are drawn alternatively."

    So, my Dad says that "TV s are based on the interlacing" technology. I must have picked progressive scan while I was in the dark fast forwarding last week.

BLACK AND WHITE SCREEN AFTER AN HOUR


This is usually caused by the tuner which loses the chrominance part of the NTSC signal. Your did not say how you have it connected but it you try using a composite video input (yellow jack) and get the color OK than it must be the tuner which is not cheap but is worth having replaced.
Hope Ya Fix it!

sounds like you have a bad solder connection on the coil connected to the base of the horizontal o/p transistor. the flyback has the big red wire. ( do not touch, just for reference), to the left and forward a little on a heat sink will be the transistor. on the other side of the heatsink,( a little more forward), you will fond a small coil on the board ir is red & you can see the windings. locate this part on the bottom of the board & resolder this part. good luck.

You may have a couple of problems here.. It souds as the tuner is intermittant and a common capacitor in the power supply is bad.. Depending on the chassis, and I think its a CTC 185 I think if your handy you can get a fully repaired board for this set at http://ptscorp.com. If you have no tv reoair exoerience, you should give back the set and be done with it. Its all up to you. This set will most likly cost 200 to 225 to have a shop repair it and I think itys not worth that. Good Luck
