Question about GE 27GT616 27" TV

1 Answer

GE 27GT616 27" TV doesn't work as a monitor

TV works fine except i am trying to put a video signal to it from a VCR and DVD, both of which work on another TV. Maybe is only settings,, as i see it should serve as a monitor, but I can't figure out how to get to it using the manual settings. I don't have a manual so maybe I just need help setting it. Or maybe the video input is just broken somewhere.

The remote has an input button that will switch it to video mode. Most stores sell the rca / ge replacement remotes.

Why GE TV plays color DVD/VCR tapes in black and white


Some inputs on tvs won't process the color signal. Try one of the other inputs. Mine does the same. If u have already used the working ones on something else, U will need a switch to select one or the other available at Radio Shack if u can find one.

How do I escape from an input screen back to watching satellite tv? Screen reads first please connect all signals and antennas to jacks and terminals on the back of the tv then press the channel up key...


Looks like your set is not receiving the signal from the sat. receiver. Make sure that the audio/video cable is in good shape and connected correctly, then select the correct input on your tv. If that doesn`t work try to connect a dvd or vcr on the same cable, if that is still no go then you may have a bad audio/video cable or there is a problem with your tv set. If it does work(dvd/vcr) then you`ll have to check your satellite receiver. Hope this help. Good luck

No video output from Magnavox VCR (MDV560VR)


You need to tune a chanel on your tv to the vcr signal, using an RF cable (aerial cable between vcr and tv). That is if your tv has an analogue tuner.

How to disable the vcr on emerson dvd vcr combo?


Hello sjz4923,
I understand your frustration, however you are not going to want to hear this so what I'll do is just come out and explain why what you are asking is almost impossible, and I'll offer a solution that will help you possibly repair this problem.

The term tv/dvd/vcr combo is a misnomer. The term implies that there are three components in this TV set (TV, VCR, DVD) when in reality there are 1 and 1/2 components in this unit. The TV section of this set is actually the VCR section (RF tuner, IF processor, Video and audio, sync section) what is added to make the TV part of this is the deflection, and High voltage section to power and control the signal to the CRT. As far as the DVD section this basically is a DVD player without the video output, but rather the analog video plugs into the VCR video out. You do have aux ports for DVD video out but these may or may not be amplified video. In a nut shell The TV and the VCR are the same electronics except for the deflection and HV circuits, and the DVD and VCR are separate except for the audio and video main inputs.

So what you are asking is almost impossible since the TV and VCR are the circuit.

Now to repair your problem. What is happening is that the signal that the circuit uses to tell that the VCR carriage is connected properly is not being sensed, what this could mean is the the signal processor is bad or the position control is malfunctioning. The first thing I would do is to make sure that the position control (a wheel on the circuit board which the carriage sets on top of and a peg from the carriage sets into a hole on the wheel) is in sync with the carriage wheel.

Also if you have the equipment you can check the sync signal created by the control and compare it with the signal on the schematic of the TV.

Now having said all of this, if you don't have a background in electronics I would suggest that you get a TV repair technician to work on this problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Onkyo TX SR 606 -- Connection Issues with Cable/ Dig Coax Audio


1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]

2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".

I broght a 32 Sharp T.V. 1080P (LC-32D62U)wroks fine. Attached is VCR(RCA) & DVD(GE) works fine except when I record on the VCR. Play back is just snow?


try channel Line 1 or Line 2 on your TV and or VCR... not channel "3" if  you're using "RCA cords".  Also, make sure your VCR and TV are "SETUP" to look for composite input's rather than coaxial.
good luck!

Good luck

Multiple video inputs


Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
