GE 35GT690 (No remote, how do I set it to Video?)

I own a GE 35GT690 TV, its probably from the late 90s or early 2000, I bought it from a friend with no remote control, I recently got FIOS and the technician was somehow able to set my TV to Video, so that the cable could work; however I accidently changed the channel on the TV and can not get the TV to go back to Video (Channel 3-4 wont work). I called Verizon and they said they could send somebody out, but would charge $100 to come out!! Can anyone help me out here?? Once again I just need my TV to switch to Video without a remote. Thanks for your help!

Recently acquired a Fisher PC203 television. Connected to cable and chose CATV. Great picture but cannot get tv past channel 40. Do not see a menu button to add or delete channels. Did not come with...

If I remember correctly, this is an older model set (late 1980, early 1990 I think). Many cable systems of that era didn't offer the large number of channels they do now, and the cable tuning of many sets was very limited. Most cable companies required you to use a converter box to get all the channels. So you probably aren't missing anything, the set just can't do more.

My GE tvwon't turn on with tv button or remote-just clicks

Most likely there is a problem in the power supply circuit inside the set. This probably would not be cost effective to repair. Thanks

GE 27GT271 locked onto satellite mode?

Is there a way to unlock the satellite setting? no. Will we have to sign up for satellite for a month or so, so that we can unlock it? yes I do not know about your place I stay in INDIA & here unless you subscribe you can not see cable channels. Or are we just out of luck on this?

Video mode

the answer to your ques is. go buy a universal remote control. since your tv is made by thomson electric. (ge@rca)you can prob get a rca universal remote at wallmart or walgreens. you won't need to reprogram. it everytime you change baterys. after you get set to turn on and off just hit tv/vcr button on remote or select channel 91 or 92 (on some models that is your video for rca/ge) good luck doctordave

Will not turn on

This set likely has a shorted horizontal output transistor q4401 part #223942. There are many po9ssible causes for this. the most likely is a defective flyback transformer t4401 part #223952. If cr4106 is shorted q4401 will be destroyed at turn on. Also bad solder connections at t4301 can cause q4401 to fail.

Will not show channels below 51

The GE (actually RCA) 35GT690 uses the CTC187 series chassis. The tuner uses the VHF circuits for cable channels lower then 51 and the UHF circuits for the higher channels. This means that the VHF circuits have stopped working in your set. I usually find that this is caused by a defective U7301 IC in the tuner, the SIP IC labeled CXA1594L. This is a very difficult IC to change and all tuner ground solder joints should be resoldered too, so that should be done by someone with experience in the CTC187 chassis.
