I had the same problem and eventually found the solution. the tact switches behind the front panel buttons tend to leak when they get old causing them to activate by themselves. take off the back cover and the switches are mounted on a small circuit board that just clips in. remove the channel up and down switches from the board and clip it back in. your TV should work fine again. you of course will have no control with the front panel buttons but the remote will still work.

    update: I found replacement tactile switches at Newark, part no.
    PTS645TL50. I replaced all six switches on the board and my TV works
    great now. I opened up one of the bad switches and noticed some
    deposits between the contacts from the copper plated actuator. This was
    probably causing a leakage of charge between the ground side and the
    high side which would activate the switch. If the set is plugged in
    then one side of the switch is always at high potential even when the
    TV is off.

Why can't i pick up channels using a RCA converter box, amplified HDTV antenna on my rca XL 100 analogue TV


If you live a good distance from the TV station you may need a better antenna. Did you do a channel search on the converter box? You'll need the remote for the converter box to change channels, not the TV's remote.

II HAVE A 13 INCH BRAND MODEL DWT 1304. I JUST WANT TO USE IT FOR A DVD PLAYER. I HAVE NO REMOTE ,HOW DO I CHANGE THE TV TO PLAY DVD OR VEDIO


Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.

Hello my mother's rca tv is stuck on channel 91. when i turn it on and use the channel keys on the set, they don't change the channel. i'm trying to get it on channel 3 so she can watch her cable.


Press Setup until you see AutoProgram... press Volume ... you will see the channels start to change. It will cycle to ch 62 or so, then go back and do the lower channels. as soon as it hits 3, quickly press Setup. it will stay on ch3, if not do it again. Once you get it on ch3, press setup until you see Channel Add/Del ... press Volume to add it. Press setup until screen is cleared. Ch /- should now toggle between 3(cable) and 91(a/v in)

The socket for cable hook up is broken off how do i fix it


As costs of repairing a TV can get expensive here is a quick and inexpensive fix.
1) Get a VCR and hook the cable into it and then connect the VCR to the TV with RCA cables. Now days you can get a VCR pretty cheap at a thrift store or a pawn shop then use the tuner in the VCR to change the channels.

OR

2) Get a digital cable box from your cable provider and ask to have it hooked up with RCA cables. This option avoids the need for the cable jack and get to take advantage of the digital channels.

Good Luck...

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

Can't get channels I just got cable


Call your cable company! Whoever installed your cable did not set up your remote or give you one of their remotes. Most of the time your tv must be set on channel 3 or 4 and your tv has to be set to cable. Then you can use your remote or the cable company's remote.

Channel Changing Problem


You have to go through the set up guide and reset the information you put in. It may have changed. Afterwards you must run through the auto program. This is a common problem i find with customers.

Channel selection


What you need to do is take the remote, go into the menu, find channel scan and do a channel scan to find all the available stations available on this system. Make sure the TV set is in the cable mode and not antenna mode or you wont get any stations above channel 13.
