Question about GE 19GT240 19" TV

1 Answer

Trying to get my GE 19GT240 to work with the new digital format

This is a bit complicated. Ideally I would like to be able to get my new SAMSUNG DVD-VCR purchased to replace a failed FUNAI F2840M to work with my 19GT240 set without having to spend 400 on a new, digital TV, at least for now. That's the ideal objective. Failing that, I'd like just to get my 19GT240 to work so that it receives ALL cable channels.
I live in a high rise condo with free cable provided by COMCAST. It is supposed to switch over to digital without any problems. I've run into a problem, however, due to failure of my old equipment (see above) the FUNAI VCR doesn't seem to respond to the remote. The response became progressively weaker over time. I had FUNAI send me a new remote. IT doesn't work, either. So I bought a new SAMSUNG.
One big problem - the FUNAI F2840M had one cable going in and one going out to the 19GE240. Very simple, no problemo. The new SAMSUNG DVD-9800 has THREE cables to hook up to a TV. The GE only has ONE cable outlet.
RADIO SHACK told me and Circuit City reiterated that I could use an RF MODULATOR to cope with that, so I bought an RF Modulator model DE RF from Radio Shack. It doesn't seem to want to work, or I am hooking it up incorrectly with the new Samsung DVD/VCR.
Can someone tell me how to get set up, please?
Right now the cable is running from the wall into the GE TV and I only get a FEW stations. The COMCAST guy was in the other day and told me all I need to do is scan in the channels but I can't seem to figure out how to do that on the MENU and my MANUAL is long gone.
I'm not sure if the GE TV model is compatible with the SAMSUNG model. The guy at Circuit City yesterday (I was down there for the close-out sale) told me that shouldn't be an issue that my GE TV should be able to be made to work with the new SAMSUNG DVD player, and all I needed was a modulator, which I already had bought from RADIO SHACK.
So, again the objective is to get set up with the GE TV and the new SAMSUNG DVD/VCR recorder or, failing that get ALL the cable channels from the ONE cable from the wall running into the back of my good old GE TV.

When we turn on the TV it says it is password locked and we cannot use it


If you have the remote for the set almost all use a default password that will always work--if for example 4 digit code try all zeros thru all nines.

I m using philips sa3245/37 every thing is fine but the problem is video formats are not support ? so what can i do to watch or to play video in this player?


To add videos to this player you need to use the software Philips provided. It's a bit complicated to use so follow the instructions carefully. The software will convert the videos to a Philips format to enable you to add them to the Video Folder. You can't just add a file as this will not work, it needs to be converted.
Hope this helps you.

Hi, I have a Samsung NV3 camera, I have installed a new 4 GB memory card but it is showing memory full. Is there and internal memory on the camera that is full that requires deleting? many thanks


I've tried to download a manual for this camera to give you the most accurate answer possible, however after a few minutes of frustration I'm going to answer this sort of "off the top of my head so to speak" My first impression is that the 4GB memory card my be beyond your cameras capabilities but first try this. Have you checked the memory card to make sure it's not locked I'll include a diagram check the small circle for the correct orientation the arrow shows the lock position.

Once you have made sure the card is unlocked install the memory card and then format the card. Formatting "programs and new card to work with the camera it has been installed into. Also Formatting should be done after each download of pictures to the computer hard drive. In this case formatting cleanse the old pictures off and programs the card once again to give optimum performance between the camera and memory card. If this still doesn't work then I suspect the 4GB card is to large for the camera "firmware and you will need to update your camera on the Samsung web site to a newer version of firmware. Sounds complicated but heck i did it so it's not all that technical. Also the memory card you are replacing may only need to be formatted to begin to work properly again (that's if you were having problems)

Does the GoGear SA3245/37 Player support WMA with DRM? Mine gives a File Format not supported error. If there is an update for this, I can't find it.

How do i connect a dvd player to my tv


Get an A/V cord (should be supplied) and match the color of the wires to the color of the jacks on the back of the unit. Plug a set of wires to the OUTPUT section on the back of the unit and the INPUT section on the back of your TV. Then set your TV to Video 1, 2, 3, etc. and you should be set to go. Good luck to you!

For a better explanation consult the DVD player setup manual.

My win2k adv server with sp4 finds 137gb space on a 250gb sata int hdd. how can i utilize full space where i m using 945 m/b


It's complicated to explain, but basically, you never get the full amount of space on your hard drive. For instance, a 320gb drive will always provide you with aprox. 298gb of space. However, your 137 vs 250 is a bit extreme. Is this a new hard drive? Have you made sure you have properly formatted and partitioned the drive? If this is a used drive, the previous owner may have it partitioned to use only part if the drive, so in this case I would try and format it.
