1. Problem for this phone has been narrowed down to the receiver. There is much static when using the receiver vs none when using the speaker. There is no static in other phones in the house. Tried a new cord in the receiver, but static still remains.
2. Phone works just fine with NO batteries at all. What's the purpose of the batteries?
I have the same problem with my GE 29460 GE-2 phone. I took apart the handset and the source of the humming and static is a bad (cheap) microphone. I have swapped in a spare handset from another phone which works for the time being... it doesn't fit the phone cradle very well. When I find a junked phone (any wired phone would probably work) with a good microphone I may try soldering in the mike into the old handset... its only a 2 wire solder job. I'm PO'd at GE for making junk so I don't want to buy the parts for this, if I could find them.

if your seeing static on a digital tv , your problem is "Not" in the tv its in the signal source (cable box, sat scram,Etc)
digital tvs cant produce "static" displays because they don't receive wide spectrum signals like analog TV's did (carol-ann knows this!) there "filters" are very narrow and specific , this is also why there range is dramatically smaller than analog tvs
also everyone by now knows that tv stations can no longer transmit in analog format (in Usa), G4 cell phones got there band space
Check a few things first to narrow this down a bit. Disable the surround processing. If this clears up that channel, then the problem is in the processing area. If the static remains, vary the volume. Does the static change volume too? If so, then the problem is in the beginning stages of the pre-amp section and is likely a transistor or two breaking down. The parts for this would be in the $5 range. This would probably be considered a "major' repair becaue of the time required to hunt down the defective part.
Check the electric outlet to make sure the polarity isn't reversed, which can cause static. Also, check the outlets in the room to make sure they are all grounded which can also produce static. Also, certain cell phones operating a different frequencies can produce a static.
This may seem strange but my microwave ended up doing the same thing..the solution courtesy of another website pointed toward RF interference from that faulty magnetron ge is famous for...what cure it was piece of the static paper used to protect computer parts..check it out by opening the side panel and leaning it away from the magnetron.mind started up immediately no problem ..got a piect of the static paper,fashioned it to fit...and problem solved
