Ok....i know what is wrong with your set.. it is a small (very small micro fuse. rca has issued bulliten to service centers on the problem.. getting the fuse and describing where it is then soldering might be the difficult problem here.. but let me give it a try. it is located on the main signal board in a shelded covered board called the main signal board. The fuse, 1C33,is located approximately 2 inches behing the tuner The surface mounted part has various markings on
the original part from “105” to “F”
and is located below the board marking “7C32'
Replacement fuse #275819 can be placed directly over the top and soldered to the ends of the existing fuse
to lessen the chances of damaging the board traces.
all that being said.. this is some trick soldering.. and unless your a tech i would not recomend such a repair.. i cant speak for all shops but such a repair is not that difficult for most techs and cost about 125 to 200. So good luck and let me know how it go's or if i can give any more detailed info

Hd channels not showing


Your tv has a input named COMPONENT to make work this input you need three RCA conectors (RED GREEN BLUE) plus two audio RCA Conectors red and white. If you have another set that can be plug in in this input and that set (dvd recorder, in ex.) has a digital tuner then you got it, But the Magic about the decoder box is that only cost 40.00 +- dllrs and send the signal to your antenna connector or RCA analog conector. Good luck!

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".

Read the suggestion of unplugging the TV for at least 4 hours to re-set to factory specs and that took care of it!
