RCA f20580wn 20" TV about 20 years old

I'm in Florida and I am trying t help my 82 year old mother in Massachusetts connect a DVD play to her 20 year old RCA TV. It's connected to the RCA plugs on the back of the TV but we can figure out how to get the TV on the channel/input for the RCA jacks. Do you know what channel we need to put the TV on to view input from those jacks. There's no input or video button on the TV.

    The DVD player "ONLY" has the RCA type jacks and it's connected RCA jacks on the back of the TV. We need to know how to view input on the RCA input.



    From what I remember from years ago when I had a VCR on this TV is that you need to put in on a channel to see input to the RCA inputs. I can't remember the channel but I had her try 99 and 00 but the TV just goes to channel 3. I think the TV has done an "auto program" and lost the channel that needs to be used and the TV will only go to a channel that's programmed "ON". I know that they can manually be programmed "ON" but I don't rememeber how to do it.

Hopefully you have the problem solved.

If not, the RCA plugs, listed as input 1 and 2 are shown on channel 91 and 92.

I recommend connecting the DVD to either input. Turn on the DVD. Then run the auto programming function of the TV. It will find and program the channel for the DVD. Then use the channel up or down on the remote you are currently using and you should find a working DVD.

Hope this helps.

I have been playing DVDs without problem for several years on my RCA 20F510TD 20 in. TV/DVD Combo. Now when in the DVD mode, with a disk inserted, the screen comes up with no disk found. What can I do


NOT much you can do---It is a bad optical unit inside the DVD unit---they do not see parts----only the complete DVD portion----much cheaper to go out and buy a DVD player and connect it to the audio and video jacks this unit should have.

I have a 20'' RCA TruFlat SDTV/DVD combo that's not even 2 years old and for the last week or so, whenever I try to turn it on, the picture flickers for a second and then shuts off. It usually takes 3-4-5...


The RCA tv's have the highest breakdown problems in the industry and usually take a slew of parts in the process when they finally quit. Now if you are very lucky you may have bad connections on the main board, but with history these sets carry I'am inclined to run it until it fails completely and buy a new tv.

Brand new xboxdoes not play in color on TV set at school.


Does his TV have other RCA in ports? If so, he should try connecting the 360 to the other one as it could be defective. If he connects a DVD player to the same ports, does he get the same problem? What sort of cables is he using? If he's using a component cable (RGB or YPbPr), he should try using a normal RCA cable. Also, when connecting the 360 to the other TV sets, did you use the same cables he used when he connected it to his TV set? If not, you should try switching the cable.

Can't get TV onto the AUX channel


You can purchase an RCA universal remote that will let you access the A-V inputs. These only cost about $10.00 or so. Stargazer
