I am at my wits end! i cannot figure out why i can't get this tv to program any channels below #50! it looks like it is doing just fine when it goes thru the autoprogramming, but not so. it just comes in as white noise. ANY help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. i have been all over the internet looking & have even emailed thomson consumer electronics (which is where GE directed me). again, many thanks!!!

Re: programming prob on GE TV model #27GT615
There has to be a signal on one channel at least below 50. connect a DVD player to the TV and try programming. You are supposed to have a signal on cahnel 3 or 4.i hope this helps you. thats all I can think about now.

Most TVs have a manual or auto-program feature to add or remove channels. It is possible that you have de-programmed all or most of the channels.
Connect TV to cable or antenna, enter the main menu and look for auto program feature.
It depends on the TV a bit. Which model of Broksonic TV do you have? Do you have the original remote? (remotes.com has replacement remotes for many TVs.) Look at the TV (or the original remote) for a menu or channel add subtract option. (The TV is probably programmed to skip the channels that didn't have a signal in the past so you need to reprogram this.) If the TV is a really simple TV (with just the channel and volume controls on the TV), you'll need the original or a direct substitute remote (or a higher end programmable remote). Most basic universal remotes will control power, channel and volume but not the reprogram channels option (in my experience). If you can program the add/remove channels, press 60 on the remote, wait for the TV to go to that channel and then press the Add Channel button. Alternately, with the satellite receiver on, press the combination to search all channels and program the skip to channels with signal.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (I had a really old Emerson TV; when the original remote started to fail, the cheap universal remote didn't handle the channel programming. Fortunately, the original remote would usually still work for that.)
If theauto-program feature is not picking up those lower channels and manually selecting them by pushing 07, 09 or 02 on the remote are not successful. Then your TV has a tuner issue that in most cases wont be worth a repair. If the TV has a video input use a standard cable box connected via the video input and problem solved.
If your remote does not have a menue to access auto channel programing, look for it on the TV itself. It may be hiding behind a small panel door, usually toward the bottom of the tv.Once you find it you may have to figure out how to bring the screen up that has programing feature. The screens usually can be brought up by channel or volume controls. Once the auto programing feature appears you push or press ok. If that does not work you should be able to manually key in each channel, one at a time. There as many variations as tvs. Hope this helps. Good luck. Larry
good day, if youre saying that you program the DVD to work on channel 2 or 4 does it mean you convert the signal of your dvd player from A/V output to RF out?
because the simpliest way to connect your DVD player to TV screen is by using RCA cable ( 3 wired cable being color marked as yellow/red/white) yellow = video red and white = audio
the connection would be: from dvd back part you'll see colored socket yello/red and white. connect the RCA to those socket following the same color .
and from the TV screen there should be A/V input socket. can be locate at the BACK/Side or FRONT of the screen marked as "INPUT" ( AV1, AV2,AV3 if multiple inputs). Then select which input you want to place your DVD player ex.AV1 (from AV1 there will be 3 scoket in a row, yellow/red/white)
Connect the other end of your RCA cable following the same color code to TV "AV1 INPUT" yellow = yello/red =red/white=white. then from the remote commander of your TV screen locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "A/V" press this button until the screen display switch to AV1.
I don't recall the exact incantation, but one of the menus will allow you to change the TV from Air channels to cable. You are currently in the antenna mode. Only channels up to 12 will be even close to the cable ones. On a set of that vintage, there may even be a slide switch on the front of the set.
