Salutations mandi84,

It sounds like you may need to adjust what type of cable signal your TV accepts. Depending on how old the unit is there maybe a small switch near the cable input, or a option in your setup.

If its a switch your should have three options including STD, which is the standard setting which has adopted by cable providers.

In your menu you would be looking for an option for signal, or even a choice between Air, or Cable.

I hope this helps.

Cable connector broke off of the television.


You can by an RFmodulator and a set of composite cables to get the cable signal into the tv provided you have audio and video inputs. You will then need to tune tv to the proper input to view.
Hope this helps you.

Broken cable hook up


sometimes if the tuner is not damaged then a technician can put it back on... the other option is to tune the channel through a vcr.. essentally bypassing the tv tuner and useing vcr tuner. hook the cable to vcr then using rca jacks yellow red and white connect it to you tv(if it has rca jacks ...most have them these days.. sometimes on front and sometime on back or even on the side.. tune your tv to that input(video 1 or something like that.. then using your vcr remote change channel...its not a perfect solution but it will save you the 130 buck most charge to repair that connector

Programming digital channels


The problem is not with your TV. You need a digital box to unscramble the channels.

Take the cable wire that hooks to the IN connector on your cable box and hook it to the IN connector on a 2-way cable splitter.Get 2 more short cable wires and hook one end to the OUT connector on the splitter and the other end to the IN connector on the cable box.Take the other short wire and hook it to the other OUT connector on the splitter then hook the other end of this wire to your tv (you must have two sets of RF connectors on your tv for this to work)Or you can tap the A/V connector off your cable box hooked to a video input on your tv.

RCA MM61110 Television


I had the same problem sometimes when my Gold Plus would reset itself and include all the channels but only those Over-The-Air channels. The only way I could change the programming was to completely shut down the power. Not just turning the tv off but completely unplugging it from the wall outlet. When you turn your tv back on you'll be able to choose from Antenna/Cable option. As for Guide,if you don't want to use it, don't set it up, it won't effect anything else on the television.

Remote not working


Hi Suzanne. What you need to do first is get or have the original RCA remote available. next, go into the menu and do whats called a channel search, but you will need an antenna or cable line attached to the RF input of the TV set, Do whats called an auto search. Let the set complete its cycle. If it found no channels, then there is no input sourch or you have a bad tuner or its assoicitated componets. it should be in the owners manual on how to do this. If you do not have an owners manual, get one here http://www.thomsonnetwork.com/EN/Public/InstructionBook/IBSearchResults?querytext=P5292*&brands=RCA%2cGE%2cPROSCAN%2cRECOTON%2cSPIKEMASTER%2cAR%2cJENSEN%2cAMBICO%2cADVENT%2cUNBRANDED&doctypes=IB&categories=ACCESSORIES%2cAUDIO%2cCOMMUNICATION%2cDTVS%2cDVD%2cMULTIMEDIA%2cCOLOR_TV%2cVIDEO&firstdocnum=1 If you need a new remote or original replacement please go to http://remotes.com Good Luck please do not forget to rate this thread.
