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.

My 20" rca 20f424t cuts


That sucks about your tv. Mine just turned 3 years old. Never had a problem with it. But you seriously can't expect wal-mart to take back and exchange a 3 year old tv. Come on. That would be stupid for walmart to do. Even RCA prolly dosent do more than a 1 year warranty. Unless you purchased the warranty from walmart, it will be cheaper to just get a 19 inch lcd tv now. Cheapest I see them on sale for is only $99.99

DVD to TV - can't connect. No inputs on the actual TV


You could buy a RF Modulator, into which you can Input the 3 cables (Video, Audio Right and audio Left) and the Modulator will make it into a single RF signal, which can be tuned by the TV. RF Modulators are generally set at UHF Channel 36 by Default. One of the easisst available is the Rabbit Ears Modulator, which "transmits' the signal wirelessly to the TV. Not more than 15-20$

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

Cannot get DVD to Play on TV


Try the old RCA/GE channels of 90/91 or 92 to get to the inputs. Or try entering channel 00. Let me know if that works.
