Rca unusable signal


Your TV could be on the wrong input source. if your using red/white/yellow cables look for an inpout button or source or even TV/Video. your tV has many inputs on it and you can only acess them 1 at a time, this allows you to toggle through the input sources and when you get to the right on you'll have picture and sound

Rca model j27435 trying to use dvd player says unusable signal


Most DVD players and maybe the Wi are connected via rear audio and video input jacks so that may be your issue.

My rca tv has unusable signal onit


Hi, Check the cable connections to and from the TV.
Change the channels to see if there are others that are out.
If you are not using any cable company then you will still need a set top box to unscramble the digital signal. Good luck.

I have my rca model f36665 hooked up strait from the wall to the tv and I can't get it to find the channels. do I have to have a cable box?


First if cable I presume you have entered the menu and selected cable.

Another possible reason is the tuner/s in this set are bad---hook a DVD or something to one of the rear inputs and see if set works.

If set works that way and tuner turns out to be bad you can with a box with av cable out connections on back just go into a rear input and bypass the tuner--leave set on that input and change channels with the box.

Let me know if you have questions and what you find---usually on this set if no signal---"unusable signal" will appear on screen if no signal.

I need the maual for this rca tv L37wd22yx6 tv just keeps saying unusable signal and i need the maual


What is the signal source for the TV? Make sure that you are on the correct input. Use the Input button on the remote. If you do not have the original remote, you need one that matches that function. (Often a Source or Input button is not available on the low end remotes.) Check that you have the signal set to Antenna or Cable if you are using the coaxial connection and the source is TV. (Menu > Setup > Channel Setup > Signal Type)

If your source is a computer, use the VGA port not the HDMI port. Computers send a different type of video signal than video set top boxes. The L37WD22 can't interpret the PC signal on the HDMI input.

For a set top box on the HDMI port, the unusable signal message indicates a communication issue. Try pressing the Info button on the remote. If you see an additional message of Acquiring Channel, then the set top box isn't responding to the remote. Check that the device is on and set up correctly to communicate with the TV. (For example, if your set top box offers progressive scan, try turning of that feature with the control for the box.)

The L37WD22 was built by TTE for the RCA label. The manual is available on the TTE support page.

The direct link to the User's Manual in English is http://support.ttetech.com/RCATV/Assets/pdfs/L37WD22_16788070_IB_e-07.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Unusable signal is being displayed on television although it is connect to a digital cable box. It gives the same error even when connected to an analog cable box


You will need to have the tuner checked out, try connecting your cable box using the audio/video inputs to your tv(vid1, vid2 etc.)it should give you a normal picture.

We moved tv from living room to bedroom and the screen says "unusable signal"


What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.
