Video mode on GE 27GT610

I have a GE model 27GT610 Television set built in 1992. My DVD player is hooked up but I can't seem to find the "video" mode. What's the trick with this particular model?

    Worked like a charm. Channel 91 did the trick. Thanks for the tip.

Try hooking up the dvd player and turning it on. Then use the setup and add/erase channel feature to look thru all of the channels. On my older GE tv I found that channel 91 was the correct channel for the video input. I saw the logo for the dvd player on this channel. I just added that channel and now it works. Your channel might be different.

I was having the same problem with an xbox and dvd player.I am in Vt and channel 91 worked for me for video mode.That must be the factory set video input.

Getv123, you rock. My 1991 GE 27GT610 also uses channel 91 for the video input. Without the original remote, this is the only way to switch to the video input mode. I was about ready to toss the TV to the curb until I read your post. THANKS!

Need to know how to hook up a Toshiba DVD player to a TV


Hello,

To hook up a toshiba DVD player to a television, you need to get the prongs, that you will use to hook them up.

You have a prong with red and white tip, locate the audio out on the DVD and plug in one of the prong in it then locate the audio in on the television, then you plug the other prong in the video out of the DVD player also you plug it in the video in of the television.

That is all you need to do, then you ensure you have your television on the AV mode to enjoy the DVD player on it.

Take care and good luck

Im trying to set up my tv, it was given to me as a gift, my uncle was using it it works i can change the channels but when i try to work my dvd player with it, only the audio comes on the screen stays...


Hi,
Please few things...
1- Make sure audio and video wires are hooked correctly in AV input of tv and you selected that AV input in tv with its remote.
2- Also check your dvd has not been set on progressive mode if you hook dvd player through yellow-red-white wires with tv.
3- if dvd player is set on progressive mode, then hook it with tv by component video input, red-green-blue for video and red-white for audio.
Hope this info will solve your problem.
Thanks.

I can't seem to hook up my Insignia T.V. and my dvd player up


The way to hook up the dvd player to the television to to put a cable into the output signal section of the dvd player( Ther may be many different ways to hook-up the signal s-video and component video, regular video. You must pick one of these output signal sources to put into the input section of your television by matching them up i.e s-video out to s-video input compnent video output to component video input, regular video out to regular video input. For each of these video hook-ups there will also be a set of two sound cables. Look on the back of your television for the signal input section and hook up the video cables and the sound cables to your selected input. You should do this with both units turned off in order not to damage the circuits by shorting them on cable insertions ofr causing heavy feedback in the circuits. One this connection is complete. Trun on the television first and select the TV's signal source . By pressing the input button and using the up and down arrows to find the correct selection. By matching up all three sources you now should have the correct signal path. Turn your DVD and test the controls. try using the volume control and use you dvd to to play,ff, or stop the dvd.If all this works then you have done the set up correctly and can now enjoy your dvd's on the television Hope this helps you with your problem..

Only getting sound but no picture!


Well, i had a look at the back of that Toshiba TV - make sure that the red, white, and yellow cables are hooked into the Video-1 slot of the Toshiba and that the Toshiba channel is changed to Video 1.
Then check your nameless DVD player and make sure the red, white, and yello cables are all hooked to OUTPUT slots that are in the same column or row - if I had you DVD manufacturer and model #, I could suggest some additional steps to check. Also, make sure your dvd player is in dvd playback mode.

No manual to figure out how to configure video settings for games


It's March 30, 2009 and I just tried hooking this same tv up with the DVD player. No remote and was ready to throw the TV out the window. Another question on this same site helped me figured it out. There is no input button. You have to plug the DVD or video system in and then go to channel 91. That's the default channel for input 1. Strange but it worked.

Hook up of new dvd player to comcast cable box


I ran into the same problem, Radio Shack has a device called a RF Modulator. The model # is Model: 15-2526 | Catalog #: 15-2526, the price is $27.49. On the back there is a place for cable in and cable out to tv. There are the 3 rca jacks on the back also, 1 video (yellow) and 2 audio (red/white) That simple. Set the tv to channel 3, turn on the dvd player and it automaticlly puts the dvd on the screen. Turn it off and back to normal cable. Works great, I use one myself. hope this helps. Steve

The yellow is video and white is audio. On the remote is an input button that will switch the tv to video mode. If you didn't get the remote most stores sell the rca / ge replacement remotes.

I can't get my DVD to play on my GE 25GT240 25" TV


I'm not sure, but, if you use the channel down button on the television (below channel 2), the set may go to the video inputs. If not a local retailer should have an inexpensive universal remote that would work on this set and have an input or tv/video button. If you use a cable box, the remote can be programed also. If you need more help, reply to this post and I can come up with more solutions when I get to my shop next

Need Help Setting Up DVD player to an old Zenith Television


You can find the owner's manual for this set online at: http://www.zenithservice.com/gcsc/b2c/hpi/main?tc=owm.command.OwmCmd It says that the BOTTOM four connectors are: 1. S-Video IN 2. Video IN 3. Audio (Right) IN 4. Audio (Left) IN Above the Audio IN connectors are two audio OUT connectors, which you could hook to external speakers, your stereo, etc. But these are not needed for hooking up your DVD player. From your DVD player, you need to hook up either the S-Video or Video connection (Video is typically the Yellow wire), plus the Audio connections (Red and White). If your DVD player has an S-Video output, this will give you a better picture than the standard Video connection. S-Video cables have a different plug, with four or five wires in the connector, and are keyed so they only fit into the socket in one orientation. Be careful to line it up properly and not force it in the wrong way.
