Question about RCA F27442 27" TV

2 Answers

The TV is connected to cable but only shows snow. The cable company keeps telling us to set the TV to cable and run the channel scan. We have run the channel scan several times and always come up with zero. When we go into the Guide Plus, it says it is hooked up to cable. Is there something that I am missing? Please help

Sounds like your "input source" is not set to cable.

first thing you did not mention anything about the sound, if you are getting good sound .if you are not getting good sound associated with the problem you are having.the tech who you carry the set to ,did not check the tuner and the IF circuit there is where the sound and video originate from.if the sound is good then they should have looked in the video circuit a ic conrols that section.i would advice that you take it back and mention it to them.these set are the one that have thier tuner built on the board.and like to have that type of problem sometimes soldering around the tuner casing will solve the problem.good luck,any other question contact me on my email [email protected] or on this same website.

SOURCE: RCA TV f27422 TURN OFF THE GUIDE PLUS

Hello, I have had my TV for 3-4 years and have dealt with this stupid guide popping up for the last 2 when I got curious to see if it was something I wanted to use. FINALLY I came across a solution - so far so good but tomorrow it could be back? I did not have the option field some suggested to use. So saw another suggestion for something else and so far so good. When going into the setup guide. Select the USA, place all 0's in the zip code area and NO for everything else.... no VCR no cable, etc.
Hope this helps..
I also was able to do this without the remote - IF you can get the menu to pop up you just have to use the numbers to select what you need. Found the remote and saw nothing different as far as menu options. Good luck.

No more then 2 missing channels verses no channels and SSB cost,I would leave it alone. But if you need any of the boards to this set call 1-800-648-6657 UED

How do I change Channel default on start up

Use your remote. Press menu and look up initial set up or reset to factory settings.
* Note that as of Jan 2018 most cable companies do not provide analog outputs to TV sets. If your still using Channel 3 for an input to your TV then it won't work or will stop working some time this year.
* Hook up your TV using the old RCA video/audio jacks; Yellow plug is video, Red is audio right, White is audio left.
* You can also use an HDMI cable (best) for High Def picture which is all the rage for HD TV.
* You may also connect using the DVD style cable hook up which uses 4-5 separate cables (3 for colors and 2 for audio)
* Once you have some sort of video or message on the TV screen then you can proceed to setting up the cable box. Have the cable box hooked up and on for at least 15 mins. Look at the cable box display till the correct time is displayed. Power up the cable box till you see the power on indicator. Now use your TV remote to select the correct input you hooked your cables t. (probably HDMI) The display should show you your cable service. Now use the cable remote to select your channel.
* If you don't have a cable box but still have digital service (usually called basic cable - no premium) then use the analog/digital input on the TV remote and select initial set up. There should be an automatic channel search and set up to scan all the channels available on the line your connected to. This will take up to 15mins. If you know the specific channel you can cancel the scan and pick each channel for you own list. Letting the scan run may help you find other channels you are unaware of.
* Final; if your still having problems then call you TV MFR support line and they will talk you through to check your set.
* You can also check the cable company support line if the TV check out okay. The cable company may or may not be able to supply you service for really old Tube style TV sets as most if not all TV's are digital now.

Set stations

A channel scan is a vital part of utilizing your cable TV service. When a coaxial cable is connected to a TV, sometimes it will not display any channels until you configure the TV for your specific cable connection and scan for available channels. A channel scan can be applied to basically any type of TV or TV/VCR combo, even if you are missing its remote control.

Instructions
    • 1 Bring up the TV's menu. Look for a button on the front panel of your TV/VCR labeled "menu" or "setup." Press it and you should see a menu appear on the screen. Part of the menu should inform you what buttons you can use to navigate through the menu. If not, try using the volume buttons or channel buttons on the front of the TV and see if pressing those allows you to navigate through the menu.
    • 2 Specify channel scan settings. Once you are able to navigate through the TV's menu, look for the "channel scan" "auto-program," or "auto-tune" option. This may be inside one of the TV's sub-menus such as "setup," "channel setup," or the like. The key of this step is to specify your cable settings before running your channel scan. The "tuner mode" option needs to be set to "cable" rather than "air" or "antenna." You may have to specify what cable type to use, this will be set to "std" or "standard" for the vast majority of cable providers. If you are not certain what cable type you use at home, contact the technical support department of your cable provider.
    • 3 Run a channel scan. Once the scan settings have been set properly, run the scan (usually done by pressing a "start," "scan" or "begin" button.) When the scan is complete, check to see if you are getting all of your channels. Contact your cable provider if you are not sure how many channels you are supposed to be getting.

Connected lg tv directly to cable wall jack. Can only get one channel. Manual scan grayed out. Ez scan does not find any channels. Main input is set to cable box. No option for just cable

Why not get a box and hook via rear inputs--not that expensive from most cable companies. If items such as the channel scan are grayed out it means something in the set is set wrong---

My tv sanyo cm21kf81A, chassis number FC3-G221 has snow noise on all tv channels, but AV1 and AV2 play good sound

First check cable wire or whatever is connected to set for channels--the leads are connected and wiggle them with set on to see if it clears up--could be a connection where cable wire is connected at end--loose connection there etc.

If tuner is bad causing this and you use a box for signal--most have rear audio/video outputs you can connect to a unused video/audio input on rear of set---bypass the tuner in the set and operate set that way changing channels on box instead of set.

let me know if you have questions or have more information.

When you are using a FullHD upscaling model. I still have to a HD setbox

the set top box is required by your cable company.

if you plug cable directly into the TV and run an auto program from the TV menu it will find most channels. BUT it will not locate them correctly.

for instance I have comcast. Channel 58 is FX but WITHOUT a cable box it shows up as the following on my HDtv's

sharp 52" shows up as channel 83.10
RCA 27" shows up as 86.6
RCA 32" shows up as 89.3


its a pain in the ****. We rent 2hd boxes from comcast at 7.99 a month and I refuse to pay them any more per month.

Contrary to what most cable providers say you WILL pick up most channels and in fact you will pick up some HD channels without the box but you have to look for them and they won't be on the same channel on every TV.

Lastly cable companies also remodulaet their signals every once and a while so there will come a time when you will have to do the whole setup, autoprogram (ch scan) again and yes the channels will once again move to another channel.

cable sucks Comcast REALLY sucks
