Question about Televison & Video

Unwanted timer turns on TV every day.

I was recently given a GE 27" color TV model #27GT610 without a manual. There is some sort of activated alarm system that turns the TV on automatically every day (usually when I'm not home). How do I turn it off?

On this timer is the light color of time Day and the blue cover on time for night?


You posted under GE 7-day random vacation timer.
This timer shows 7 days of the week.
The nighttime hours are white with blue background.
Daytime hours are blue with white background.
Timer dial rotates clockwise, and make 1 revolution each week.
To set timer, manually rotate dial until current day and hour line up with 'time now' pointer.
Move slide switch to TIMER ON.
Timer randomly turns on-off at preset times.
To watch timer in action: turn lamp ON, plug lamp into timer, plug timer into outlet, and then manually rotate dial clockwise several rotations and watch lamp turn on-off.

Have set timer to come on all days of the week at the same time. when i press mode the timer turns on with the on setting but off on auto setting


You posted under GE 24-hour analog power strip.
But question says 7-day programmable without giving brand and model number of your timer.
Resourceful do-it-yourselfer cannot sell a product on e-bay without describing what you have.
Same with fixya.

Open following links to help identify timer and for helpful information:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#57698
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#troubleshoot

We have 4 solid options.

1) The omission of key information in question leads me to suspect that you have not read manual carefully. Or that timer has programming conflicts.
I write out information when manuals are confusing.

2) I read timer manuals each day, test timers, and write timer manuals.
Some manuals are poorly written and confusing, so add a comment to this thread with model number so I can read manual alongside you.

3) Add a comment with photo of your timer, so I can identify timer and give best answer:

4) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

After cussing at the thing for a while to get its attention,
I thought the problem over and fixed it as follows:

I went into the setup menu and selected the "reset default option. The set went to blue screen. The next step was to rescan the channels. Then in the time setup menu I turned off the automatic time update. So far have not had any more problems.

Video mode on GE 27GT610


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.

TV turns itself off and back on


Your problem could be as simple as bad solder connections on the main high voltage transformer or in the sweep power supply. Without doing some probing around inside the set while it is turned on, this is a hard call my freind. If the set is over 5 to 8 years old, it is most likly age related as the Printed circuit boards, as they heat up and cool, will develop poor solder connections, ring cracks around the solder connectios and also heat related problems with some of the internel componets. This is a solid state TV set, and has no user replaceable parts inside. So if you have the know how around solid state TV circuits, and know how to solder, then maybe, just maybe you will be able to get this puppy to work just a little bit longer. if you do not, it is time im afraid to put this beast to rest and buy a new early holiday gift. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
