Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer


I don't know when this happened, but the input for the coax cable from the antenna/cable got broken off right at the base of it where it comes out of the what I'm guessing is the RF adapter. My question is can you replace just the adapter (part #) or do you have to replace the entire circuit board (part #). Any info would be greatly appreciated. Also, part numbers for either of these parts would be greatly appreciated as well.

Hey, Im pretty sure the it can be soldered back in or replaced with another.

or if the damage is extensive then the whole board might need to be replaced hard to say from here.

Id need to find the service manual to get the part numbers. Il look but i think they cost.

How do i get my Dynex TV to work on an antenna

Easy. First put up a good outside or wall antenna. Then run a coax cable (not flat lead wire) from the antenna to the tv. To do this you need to get a "balum" to go from the antenna to the coax wire. It's a small plastic 'transformer' (( about the size of your pinky finger)). The other end of the coax wire should have an 'F' connector put on it so it can screw into the F connection on the back of the tv set. Then get your remote and go to the input of your tv and change it to antenna input. Then do a channel scan. Let it finish scanning and it will let you know how many channels it picked up. If you're in a big city then you may pick up as many as 100 or more channels. If you're in the country, you may only pick up about 5 channels! If you need more channels then go back to Home Depot or Lowes and get an 'antenna amplifier'. Hopefully one that has about 25db gain. Most only have about 10db gain but the higher the number the better. It should be put inline between the tv and the antenna so you'll need another coax cable for the amplifier to the tv. The wire that comes from the antenna goes directly to the 'input' of the amplifier. Then from the 'output' of it to the tv. You'll love it once it's done and it's cheaper than cable or any other paid service!

Coax cable does not go in fm antenna connection of RT2781

If the coax cable and the antenna input are "F" connectors, they should fit although the fit may be tight.

It is possible that the cable to your antenna is broken somewhere. You have the right idea to start there.
It is also possible that your TV is looking at CABLE instead of AIR, or visa versa.

I clicked a button by accident last night and now my Vizio tv reads no signal and a small display in the top right corner reads AV. How can I get my tv to read cable signals again??

What input is the cable connected to? (Coax antenna In, component video, composite video)

Look on the remote or the TV itself for a button marked Source or Input. Press this. For some TVs, use the up/down arrows to select the input to which your cable is connected. (TV = coax) On other models, you may need to press the Source button several times to advance between inputs. (I'm assuming you have a remote that works for this feature on the TV; otherwise, use the TV button.)

I hope this helps.

(common modern TV setup: VCR on AV1, DVD player on Component 1, PC to the HDMI/DVI and coax to the antenna in. The source button is needed.)

Bought a Soney KDL-46EX500 last week. Still tring to get it set up. Got the digital local stations programed into it today. (finally) Now I can not figure out how to switch back and forth from locals...

Looking at a diagram of the back of your TV I see that you have only one Coax input. You will need to plug either your antenna or the DirecTV in one of the other sources available on the back of the TV.
According to DirecTV's website, their box also uses composite video cables and depending on the age of that box, may have an HDMI connection also.
Looking at the back of your TV, the composite video cable input is the top two rows to the right of the Coax input you are currently using.
Once you have both connected to different inputs, you can use your remote to switch between the sources and watch whichever you like.

Trying to hook up your DV220SL8 DVD/CD Video Cassette Recorder. I have an antenna coming in coax but there are no places to plug any of the jacks on the tv.

There are two ways of solving this problem
1.It seems to me that you need an RF Modulator Box. What this does is convert the RCA cables (Yellow,White,Red cables) into coax. You buy the box then plug you antenna and RCA cables into the box. The box has a coax output that goes to your TV. You can then switch from VCR\DVD to antenna.

2. I dont know if your VCR/DVD has it but try hooking up your antenna to the VCR coax INPUT and then hook up your TV to the coax OUTPUT. Both Coax INPUT and Coax OUTPUT should be on the back of the VCR/DVD device. Your going to need an extra Coax wire for this.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!
