Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Loss Color Shut down and unplugged TV and moved it out of room to refurbish room. Weeks later when I turned it back on all color was gone. But when tickering with the picture set the screen had color. Using RCA inputs. Other TV connected to the same cable has color so its not the box or cable. Any ideas?on from experts



Answers :

I get that there is no Chroma on something but not sure in what mode or source you are speaking about. Sometimes people have trouble due to a setting being wrong or they use a really cheap video cable which can strip the higher frequency Chroma signal off of the Baseband or Composite video signal. Try a higher grade of video cable- video signals at 10MHz bandwidth do not like to go through cheap audio cables. maybe you could clarify the problem more?

This RCA L26HD31 TV has always worked fine in other respects... but when I try to connect my pc's hdmi cable to it for use as a monitor, I just get "unusable signal". When this TV was made, hdmi outputs on laptops was not the norm - it was vga. Can this TV use an hdmi signal from a dell laptop? Yes, I'm using the correct input for the TV and have tried hdmi1 & 2 ports. - Thx

SanyOur house was struck by lightening and now I can only get sound from my TV when connected by the coaxial cable or the RCA (red/white/yellow) cables. If I connect the TV using the componant (red/blue/green) jacks then I get full sound and picture so I know the TV picture does work. Trouble is I do not have an extra cable box or VCR to connect the TV by componant cable. Is there any way to fix the TV so that the coax or RCA hookup will provide picture too aside from taking it to a TV repair

I have an RCA F27442 TV without G-link cables and need to select cable tv channel input. The setup routine will not allow selecting cable channel input unless I first set up G-link. Is there any other way to set TV to receive more than 13 channels so I can use on my cable system?


Yes, enter the menu. Look for signal source (ant/cable) select cable. Then run channel scan. This is an older TV and will require some time for the system to scan the cable channels and adjust. The process could take up to 20 min. Do not disrupt ... RCA F27442 27" TV

I have an ILO - 32HD Television but the cable cord that comes from the wall does not have a place on the TV to connect to. There is an indentation labeled ANT in the shape of a USB port which it isn't, just shaped like one. How can this TV be hooked up to my cable service? Is my only choice to use the colored yellow, red, and white cords? If so, that is too bad because that means I can't hook up any other devices such as a DVD to the TV (without constantly interchanging them).
