OLDER MODEL RCA HOME THEATER PICTURE AND PICTURE

I have a problem with my OLDER MODEL RCA HOME THEATER PICTURE AND PICTURE TV WITH GUIDE PLUS When I turn the unit on, it scrolls between the Guide Plus and the menu more of the menu than the guide and won't allow me to change channels or control the volume. Some days it won’t allow me to turn it on at all with or with out the remote. The only way to turn the TV back on is to hit the Volume down button on the TV it self. But when we have to turn it on that way a sequence of red numbers appear on the bottom of the screen that are highlighted in blue. When that appears you can’t even control the TV unless you hit the CH up button. In order to turn it off you have to hit the CH down button on the TV when the menu is not flashing on the TV or just unplug it. On top of every thing else the TV will mute it self for hours while the menu is jumping from on option to the next. Please can you help?

Hi Unykue,

I am an electronics technician who just happened have been given the same set as you because it was giving the previous owner the same problem. Since I am confident in my trade, I took the set and diagnosed noise in the remote receivers input to the cpu.

What this means is that a capacitor( or something) wasn't working properly and was either not filtering the noise out or it was introducing noise into the data stream that controls the TV through your remote control.

My fix was to essentially cut out the entire remote control input to the TV. Since I have a directtv box to give me remote control, I don't care if the TV's remote works anyway.

The way I did this was to open up the unit and find the front I/O board were the buttons meet the switches for power,chaennel, volume, etc. On that board there is a plug with white wires and one black wire. The two wires to cut are the one next to the black wire and the one all the way at the other end of the black wire. These two wires are easy to splice back if you do not like the results of this procedure so that there is really no risk of damaging your set. If you wish to verify the proper wires to cut, they are the two wires that come from the IR receiver's side of the board YET DO NOT GO TO THE OTHER SIDE WITH THE BUTTONS! There is one wire that does indeed go to both sides.

This may not be a perfect solution but it is free. I hope that this will help someone out there.

You can disable this only by going into the Guide Plus+ menu. If you have the original remote or one that matches the feature, press Guide then Menu (sometimes you need to hold this for a few seconds), navigate to Setup (right arrow until it is highlighted). OK, Menu or the down arrow all let you enter the menu. Then use the up/down arrows to select Review Options. Select Off (only two choices). Press OK and exit the guide.

I hope this helps.

Question?
Whenever I turn on the television, the GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes on.
Answer:
The GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes up when you use the TV button on the remote to turn on the TV. There are several ways to turn off this function if you wish, depending on your model.
Option A:
Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu.
Select Setup.
Select Options.
Select Off.
Option B:
Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu.
Select GUIDE Plus+™ Auto Display from the GUIDE Plus+ menu.
Select Off.
Option C:
Press GUIDE on your remote control.
Select the Menu bar.
Press the right arrow button to select Setup.
Choose Review Options.
Select Off.

I know Option C worked for me!!

Given the many TV models, it's possible that accessing control of this feature in the Program Guide menu may differ on your TV. For specific instructions for your model, see your owner's manual.
