Hello prunefeet.

If you're certain you've connected the cables correctly, I think the part you may be missing is selecting the correct input on the TV. Switch the TV and DVD player on, then press the INPUT button on the RCA remote (supplied with the TV) slowly and repeatedly until you either get the setup/welcome screen from the Sony DVD player or you return to the TV channels again.

If you don't have the original RCA remote control or you cannot find the signal from the DVD player by pressing the INPUT button, please can you let me know the following:

1. How many jacks/plugs are there on each end of your RCA cables - 3 or 5?
2. Which remote control do you use to operate the TV?

Front Panel Lock
Selecting this option lets you lock (disable) or unlock (enable) the TV's front panel. The remote still tunes to any channel. When using this as a Parental Control method, remove access to any remote
that is capable of operating the television.
1. From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight Lock Fr. Panel.
2. Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn't have check mark) front panel lock.

If, when you turn down the color control all the way you have a black and red picture, then your picture tube is most likely weak and it's time to replace the set. If the black and white picture is normal, then the set could have a problem in the chroma circuit. Either way, it would not likely be worth repairing.

on the kine board,( the small board plugged on the back of the tube.) look for and test rb030,rb050,rb070, all 3 resistors sould read 1000 ohm (or 1k ohm). I suspect one of there resistors are open. if not on ib001 (same board). you can check for these voltages. pin1 2.8v, pin2 2.9v, pin3 2.9v, pin4 0v (ground), pin55.9v, pin6 181v, pin7 104v, pin8 105v, pin9 111v. all voltages are in dc. hope this helps.

The 20F530T uses the relatively newer ITC008 chassis. If the picture collapses down and only a small bright line is visible, it means that your vertical output IC has stopped working correctly. This could be due to a defective IC, cracked solder joints on the IC or the power supply that feeds it. The IC should be replaced or resoldered and/or the vertical power supply restored by an experienced tech familiar with the new line of RCA TV's.

Hello Franchette, for what you describe, you have been unable to see the channels or have been deleted from the list of tuning of your TV
As a first step make sure that the antenna or cable video connection is in perfect condition, if you use a decoder, check on another TV that works well, check the interconnection cables between the decoder and the TV, if you can not solve, I sent you a link so you can download the user manual so that you follow the steps of tuning and controls the connections
I hope your information is useful and you can restore the channels on your RCA TV
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Franchette, por lo que describes, te has quedado sin poder ver los canales o se han borrado del listado de sintonia de tu televisor
Como primera medida aseg?rate que la conexi?n de antena o v?deo cable est?n en perfecto estado, si utilizas alg?n decodificador, comprueba en otro televisor que funcione bien, revisa los cables de interconexion entre el decodificador y el televisor, si no logras resolver, te envi? un link para que puedas descargar el manual de usuario para que sigas los pasos de sintonia y controles las conexiones
Espero te sea ?til mi informaci?n y logres restablecer los canales en tu TV RCA

Hello Cherie, the RCA 98090, has no HDMI output, if it has composite audio and video output, through the RCA connectors on the right side of the DVD
To see it on your TV you would have to connect a cable of three RCA (Yellow, White and Red) from the DVD, to the AV input of your TV
I hope you can see the DVDs
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Cherie, el RCA 98090, no tiene salida de HDMI, si tiene salida de audio y v?deo compuesto , a trav?s de los conectores RCA del lado derecho del DVD
Para poder verlo en tu TV tendr?as que conectar un cable de tres RCA (Amarillo, Blanco y Rojo) desde el DVD, hasta la entrada AV de tu televisor
Espero puedas ver los DVD

Almost certainly a bad motor. Visit your local Goodwill/rummage store/yard sale for a replacement unit. Parts are almost impossible to get and the cost to repair vastly exceeds its value.
