If you have the set off, and the cable plugged into the back of the set for a day or so, the guide plus should come back. It will sometimes take up to 48 hours. If it does not, there is a problem with the set and will require servicing. Good Luck

SOURCE: No display

Well I just joined in the world of broken Samsung's. Died Feb. 1st. I had three month additional warranty, but of course it died the day after. Same problem, no video, just audio.

However if you call 1-800-522-7341. This is the number for Executive Customer Relations. They extended my warranty and contacted the repair center for me. Probably won't be fixed by Superbowl Sunday though. I expressed my disbelief that after 15 months a 2400 set can die. I have to call back on Monday for additional help.

SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

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.

The screen is upside down and when I click "set up" or "System" it reads "Source Unavailable" and I have no options to choose from.


Apply the Factory Reset within the projector options. You should be able to select that option without a source attached to the projector. What the option does is set every settings of the projector back to factory default.

I just got a new 26" Westinghouse TV, and the screen says "No Channels in List" and when I search for channels, it is not finding any.


What type of antenna are you using? Or what is your source for accessing channels? (i.e. - are you connecting to a cable tv service box or are you using a receiver ect.) Make sure that your source is connected to the input method that you are currently using on the tv.

There are many input methods to choose from in the settings of the tv. They are generally called antenna 1, antenna 2, cable, aux, hdmi - and a few other names. There should be a button on your remote to change them. The function is usually called "source" or "input". Press that button to change the input method until you get a picture on the tv or pick up some sort of reception. when you have the tv set on the same method of input that your antenna source is connected to, you will get channel reception or some sort of picture. Thats when you use the menu functions to auto find channels for you and let it go through its checking scan to report how many it has picked up.

If its running the scan for channels and not locating any stations, and the picture is either scrambled with the white noise sound tv's make when off channel or if its just single color screen without any sound - then you know the antenna input method you have chosen on the back of the tv is not the current method set in the settings under the menu key.

Most of the time the inputs are labeled on the back. If you look under the cable antenna connection, it should say "cable" somewhere in small print - or "antenna 1 input", antenna 2 ect. Look on the back of the tv. If you are using RCA jacks that are labeled right and left for sound and a third connector for video ect, look for the name of the input method of those three connections on the back of the tv. It should be marked as input - aux 1 ect. Then just change the source chosen in the tv to match it and have it auto program your channels.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

How can I get intructions to adjust the data on my RCA WERE 1001 Made in China Black oval approx 5 1/2 " high weather station?


You should be able to press and hold the 'set' button on the back of the unit, then press the + or - button, also on the back, at the same time as pressing the 'set' button. Hold for about 2 seconds and it should beep. then it is just a matter of going through each item on the station and adjusting the time, etc., with the + or - buttons.
