Question about RCA HD61LPW165 61" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

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

Our power went out and when it came back on we couldn't get the cable going (kept getting a "unusable signal" display). We reprogrammed back to correct input, but only get a few seconds of sound, then it stops and goes back to unusable signal message. Comcast came out and spent an hour and a half and couldn't fix it. They said it was the TV because the same thing happens when he tried the VCR, a couple seconds of sound, then "unusable signal" again. He suggested resetting back to factory specs, but we don't know how.

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

Unusable signal is being displayed on television although it is connect to a digital cable box. It gives the same error even when connected to an analog cable box


You will need to have the tuner checked out, try connecting your cable box using the audio/video inputs to your tv(vid1, vid2 etc.)it should give you a normal picture.
