Question about GE 46GW 948 46" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

TV will not change channels

I have had this 46" GE for about 12 years; great picture and sound. Recently it started having this unusual problem. It will not change channels. I first noticed it while turning on the DVD and you could hear the DVD playing while the tv remained on whatever channel it had been on (from the DISH tuner). While running some tests I noticed that no matter what channel I selected for the TV, ( 7 required for my Zenith VCR/DVD combo) the DISH feed remains on screen. If I entered channel 99, the tv doesn't recognize it and the picture remains on whatever channel the Dish receiver is set for. I have no idea where my manual is, but I think it's a problem with the tv's tuner. It will not allow the DVD/VCR to capture the tv screen. Electronically, it gives indications that the DVD/VCR isn't connected, but physically it is.

Would love to hear from anyone who has experienced this or anything similar to it.

SOURCE: channel changing

You can obtian the user manual at http://www.thomsonnetwork.com/EN/Public. It is likely that during intital set up you selected iether VCR or cable box. If so unplug the tv for about 5 minutes. Whenit is turned on again you will get the intial setup screen. Select "nl" when asked if you have a VCR or cable box.

I think your TV is made by RCA and it should go to cable channel 125. If Comcast has any channels above 100, you should be able to get them. RCA TV's have a problem with the solder connections inside the tuner. This may be your problem. If this is the case the tuner would have to be taken apart and re soldered. Stargazer

If you have lost sound on only one station and are using cable or an antenna directly to the TV. Look in the audio settings as most likely the SAP mode is turned on. If the TV detects a SAP signal even if there is no audio this is what you will end up with.

sounds like the backlight is out, can you see a picture when shining a flashlight on the screen. if yes you have either a bad inverter power supply or bad screen (panel).
both are serious , also could be just a few bad capacitors on the power supply, if you want you can do a visual of the power board caps will appear swolled on top and are easy to solder in cost about $1 EACH

Not getting a picture from a Samsung 46" LCD TV


check if the back lamps are still on when you lose image, all you have to do is get close to the screen and make is totally black and if is not that means you have a back light working, but if the back light is gone you may have a defective panel.

talked to samsung TA about the same problem I had and the recommend to replace the power supply first to confirm a defective panel because a panel is quite expensive

the button cluster in the front may have a bad tack switch(button) or the buttons may have loose connections. you can take the speaker grill off and look yourself...watch for wires..unplug your tv first:) also if you use spray cleaner that may have seeped into the button cluster too...you may be able to get the cluster as a whole from a local tv repair shop and put it in yourself..save labor charges:)
