Question about GE 25GT539 25" TV

1 Answer


Last night I was playing with the remote for my GE Guide Star Television. I made the screen totally black by lowering the colors etc. I accidently dropped my remote and the TV turned off. So now when I turn it on I have a black screen because I cannot see where I am in order to get back to the menu to fix the screen. Please advise me on what to do. Is there a reset button or something I can press to make the screen go back to its original way?

I hope this is the case, some tv's have screen and focus controls accessible from the back ,you can't miss them as you look at set from the back they should be in the right side,if you have access to them turn the bottom one to the right and remember how much you move it,this will aloow to see soemthing in the screen so you can put everything back to where it was,when you are done the picture will look too bright with lines the you turn the screen control to the left to make it perfect.You dont have to remove the back cover.I hope it works.

It is a text box. You can disable it within your television's closed captioning settings. You have to go into your menu and go to closed captioning and enter the category and go to mode off

Zenith TV has a big black box in the middle of the screen.

After reading other postings, we figured out that it was the caption box, went to menu and turned it off.
Thanks for the great site, we wouldn't have figured it out without it !

I had the same problem on my TV (Nontaus N5119A). As suggested above, I switched the TV, pressed and held the 'Display' button for about 10 seconds and TV unlocked.

Thanks a lot for posting the solution. Much appreciated.

Turn tv on, and it scrolls through the channels

Had the same problem, channels would not stop scrolling.
It was as though someone had there finger on the channel up button.
Disconnected the sixth wire, starting with the black wire on the wiring harness for the front buttons, on/off, ch. up/down, vol. up/down, etc.
It works fine, no more unwanted channel surfing!!
