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.

Hello... It sounds like you need to run a channel scan. If you have the owners manual, it should walk you through how to do that. I searched online for one, but couldn't find one. I seem to remember something like "Terrestrial" for Auto-programming channels. I hope this helps!

Incomplete Auto Scan of the channels

I ran the Auto Scan. Before the scan reached 91%, I pressed the Menu button on my remote and all of the channels that it found locked in.

Dynex 32" 720 LCD HDTV - no channel listing after run auto scan?

Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:

If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)

To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.

Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.

Bought a proscanlcd hdtv 32lb30Q unable to get cable signal

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls confirm if below is how it is wired using a coaxial cable and not 3cable RCA to RCA:
  • Charter Digital Cable > DVD/VCR > TV
If yes and your concern is snowy or no signal on the TV screen, might it be that you have to power OFF the DVD/VCR when selecting channels on the TV itself (including when channel setup is being done).

Alternately, you can tune the TV to channel 3 and let the DVD/VCR do the channel selections.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
