Older GE television sound trouble

I have an older model GE television. It was working fine until this morning. We had been watching for a couple of hours, when the volume all of a sudden started going down by itself. We have tried to turn it back up, but it continues to turn itself down as soon as you let go of the volume up button. Anyone have any advice?!?!?

Re: Older GE television sound trouble

The first thing to check is the push button assembly maybe the volume down button has been pushed in too hard/far and is always making contact,sometimes when we clean the face of the tube water drips down in thru the edge of the frame in the buttonts,corrosion sets in and creates a short,if you are familiar with tv service you can chech the buttons thru the inside to make sure they are not pushed in but if you are not famliar be safe and call for assistance froma servicer.

I need the tv code for a universal remote, im reaaaaalllly sick of getting up and changing the channel myself

we would have to know the model number of the tv and the universal remote to give you a number ... the older universal remotes have a 3 digit code .. i have found many things that dont work with these ... the newer ones have a 4 digit code and work (or partiallly work) with a lot more products.. the code list comes with the remote or sometimes you can get them over the internet .. .. i do have the list for older and newer GE remotes .. there are many codes for various models of GE televisions .. so you need a model number .. at least how old it is .. and what remote you are using .. i will look .. maybe there are few enough codes that i can publish them all .. you would have to try them one at a time ...

My 19 inch ge tv makes buzzing noise can it be

I've had this happen on a couple of TVs, it's always been from moisture getting into the back of the TV. I've been told by a few techs that the issue is beyond economical repair on older televisions.

Video mode on GE 27GT610

Try hooking up the dvd player and turning it on. Then use the setup and add/erase channel feature to look thru all of the channels. On my older GE tv I found that channel 91 was the correct channel for the video input. I saw the logo for the dvd player on this channel. I just added that channel and now it works. Your channel might be different.

Screen goes blank while watching

Couple of things:

1) When the picture "stops", does the standby light blink at all?
2) Can you post the model number please?

Some of these sets are known to have problems with the picture tube as it starts to age. There are some workarounds for this that can extend the life of the set for a short time. Without the model number though, I can't confirm that this set is in that catagory. Please supply responses to the issues above and we'll continue from there.

Picture goes off and on...

Most likely your Cathode Ray Tube or CRT is going bad. That model number reflects an older TV. What you are describing is a fairly common problem for that television. If you bump the TV and it improves or gets worse then you know there may be a short.. Either way, I would recommend that you use our Premium Service or use our online resources to find a repair person near you. Good luck.
